Full Text:Sheep? Baa. [handwritten lettering]

Beware of leaders, heroes, organizers: watch that stuff. Beware of structure-freaks. They do not understand.

We know The System doesn't work because we're living in its ruins. We know that leaders don't work out because they have all led us only to the present, the good leaders equally with the bad. (Who caused more suffering, Hitler or St. Paul?) It doesn't matter whether the leader is good or bad: leading per se [phrase underlined] is bad. The medium is the message, & the message of leadership is Vietnam. Concentration camps. The Great Society. Riots on Haight Street.

What the system calls organization -- linear organization -- is a Systematic cage, arbitrarily limiting the possible. It's never worked before. It's always produced the present.

And heroes are only heroes, nothing more.

Any man who wants [underlined] to lead you is The Man. Think: why would anyone want [underlined] to lead me [underlined]? Think: why should I pay for his trip? Think

LBJ is Our Leader, & you know where that's at.

Watch out for cats who want to play The System's games, 'cause you can't beat The System at its own games, & you know that. Why should we trade one Establishment for another Establishment?

Do your thing. Be what you are. If you don't know what you are, find out.

Fuck leaders.

A sound leader's aim
Is to open people's hearts,
Fill their stomachs,
Calm their wills,
Brace their bones
And so to clarify their thoughts & cleanse their needs
That no cunning meddler could touch them:
Without being forced, without strain or constraint,
Good government comes of itself.

Lao Tzu
