EARLY YEARS 

The Anti-War Movement

In 1969 I began taking classes at a local university. In particular I remember a class in "Cosmology and Metaphysics." It was very disappointing. It was mainly about science and had no real cosmology, much less metaphysics. The professor was also quite disappointing. I asked him about all the world problems and what could be done to solve them. He said that humanity would be unlikely to survive another thirty-five years and there was nothing that anyone could do about it. He was content to be a professor and watch it all unfold.

This caused a certain activist trend in my nature to revolt. I wanted to do something. I wasn’t content to live in an intellectual ivory tower and watch the world fall apart. Such motivation led me to the anti-war movement, though I already had an earlier interest in civil rights, which were both prominent at the time. I became involved in the anti-war movement and participated in several anti-war protests. The movement in Colorado wasn’t large and so I quickly became a visible leader and helped organize several protests.  The movement in Colorado wasn’t large and so I quickly became a visible leader and helped organize several protests.

I was a member of SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) that was the largest student anti-war group and was connected to revolutionary groups of a communist and anarchist bent. I attended SDS national conventions in Austin, Texas and in Chicago, Illinois in 1969.
