The counterculture made it in the news today! Yay!
Here‘s a link to the Fresh Air interview on NPR.
This week I read Mary Jezer’s Home Comfort and The Dark Ages. I came in contact with Jezer when studying WIN‘s special men’s issue in 1974 for my Masters thesis. With all of the chaos going on the the world, one of the quotes that Jezer included in The Dark Ages really resonated with me:
“The problem is not how to get rid of the enemy, but rather how to get rid of the last victo. For what is a victo but one who has learned that violence works. Who will teach him a lesson?” – Niccolo Tucci in Politics Magazine, July 1945
Home Comforts – a collection of perspectives on creating, living in, and leaving the countercultural commune Total Loss Farm in the 60s and 70s. Enjoy this delicious recipe:
This kind of reminds me of a recipe for sour cream waffles I found at the Amelia Earhart exhibit at Purdue University. The recipe I saw was accompanied with an article emphasizing Earhart’s domesticity despite her (masculine) influence in aviation. They may not be delicious, but I’m too much of a history nerd not to make them.
