I never thought Bob Dylan was much of an example of anything but drug and booze abuse.
After retirement, I worked security at a major Santa Fe hotel. Dylan and his band stayed there (1991). At about 3 in the morning, guests were complaining about the ruckus they were making. Two other guards and I ended up having to evict them from the property. They were drunk, high and generally obnoxious. We finally got rid of them.
After, we went into the rooms (they were trashed) and, honestly, if we'd been on the ball we could almost have retired from selling the variety of dope we found in those rooms.The poster formerly known as chuck58 on the old board.

The reason that communist revolutions occurred in American-allied states is because the Soviets backed the communists in order to drive out our allies. Note that Soviet-backed dictatorships never had communist insurgencies, even when they were not communist states. Nasser's Egypt, Assad's Syria and Qadaffi's Libya are prime examples. Communists don't care about freedom, they care about power and advancing the goals of their patrons. If Pinochet had been made the right noises about socialism and the USSR, he'd have been a hero of the left, even if his policies had been the same.
So, no, her argument is just more propaganda on behalf of the communist totalitarians that she supports.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
