      The question we're asking, and I don't know what the answer is, is how come they don't. Any human being is too rich and complex to be just satisfied with these things. We have a ton Conversations with Albert Murray book information about them, and as I read the information, they're pretty loyal bureaucrats and do what they're told. The whole idea is that these people act in a sense outside the normal functioning of the world, so studying them teaches us about them, but not about typical and recurring patterns in history. But they are in a position to deny the influence of the movements and claim credit for themselves down the road a ways. I wanted to know how this could undermine a priori ideas about beauty and undermine a priori theories in general, like those of Marx or Freud.

      Are the intellectuals in the linguistics department comparable to the intellectuals in the economics department? They're often hard to come up with, and they're often extremely hard to work out. I was a graduate student there. Given those two choices, a rational person doesn't hesitate. It seems to me that ultimately that's what things come down to, no matter who we are. He is one of the original founders of Jazz Lincoln Center, and is currently a board member there.

      Not everywhere. It is at some level unreasonable to think that in the absence of hope or in the presence only of small hope and not a clear understanding of how one's going to make progress, that people are going to shift all the way from being average, normal, everyday folks of one type or another over to being political revolutionaries, people who see things in political terms. Q: But in a sense it's an activist group who is not highlighted and made publicly visible. And it's not an easy question. Q: It's somewhat difficult. We do it all the time.

The question we're asking, and I don't know what the answer is, is how come they don't. The economy would start to collapse, and that's the end of that program.
