Allen Ginsberg — American Poet born on June 03, 1926, died on April 05, 1997

Irwin Allen Ginsberg was an American poet and one of the leading figures of both the Beat Generation of the 1950s and the counterculture that soon would follow. He vigorously opposed militarism, economic materialism and sexual repression and was known as embodying various aspects of this counterculture, such as his views on drugs, hostility to bureaucracy and openness to Eastern religions. Ginsberg is best known for his epic poem "Howl", in which he denounced what he saw as the destructive forces of capitalism and conformity in the United States... (wikipedia)

Poetry is the one place where people can speak their original human mind. It is the outlet for people to say in public what is known in private.
Follow your inner moonlight; don't hide the madness.
The only thing that can save the world is the reclaiming of the awareness of the world. That's what poetry does.
The fact to which we have got to cling, as to a lifebelt, is that it is possible to be a normal decent person and yet be fully alive.
Whoever controls the media, the images, controls the culture.
