Plus ça change -- John and Yoko, Jerry Rubin (and others) Explain It All For You (again)

Mike Douglas Show, February 15, 1972

All of them may have Sold Out eventually, but at the moment they appeared, they knew what was going on, and they weren't afraid to say so.

They weren't afraid to go to jail, to get their noggins bashed in, [or to make fools of themselves] to Fight the Power in every way they could think of, and some that nobody ever thought of again.

They weren't afraid to pay with their lives if that's what it took.

John was assassinated by a "deranged" family friend of the Bushes. Jerry was hit by a car on Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles.

So Paul Krassner would ask in the Summer of 1995, "Who Killed Jerry Rubin?"

Yes. Well. Things aren't necessarily what they appear to be.
