so all those who don't beleive in patriotism

Posted to Utterances




i have to wonder, cause many of the beats had a vision of what america could be and were in a very weird way patriotic, i mean hell they wrote many a poem about this inner conflict, ginsberg in paticular, he did oracle of delphi and others desscussing a vision of a greater potential america, following in the footsetps of his favorite dude whitman who is the prophet in the poem, who had similar hopes and beleifs in what america could be, or look at the poem i posted below by corso describing the duel nature of Kerouac's and his own weird some what patrioticness...can any of you relate to this situation?
