"/Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think 
we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to 
be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about 
it/." ~John Lennon**
Showing Thursday, December 17th, in Cambridge:

/the US vs John Lennon
/*

"...It was when the Lennons moved to New York in the early '70s and took 
a more active role in the anti-war movement, making friends with 
radicals like Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, and Black Panther Party 
founder Bobby Seale, that the government got interested--and 
paranoid--and men like President Richard Nixon, FBI director J. Edgar 
Hoover, and right-wing Sen. Strom Thurmond began actively looking for 
ways to silence him."

"/Anybody who sings about love, and harmony, and life, is dangerous to 
somebody who sings about death/. /Lennon... was a born enemy of the U.S. 
He was everything they hated./" ~Gore Vidal.

For music fans, Lennon's solo recordings provide the soundtrack
