  • Nice comments about the Dead. Yeah there was/is a free flowing anarchism emanating from the band but as individuals I doubt they were/are aware of that in a conscious conceptual way. I believe they are pretty much lefty Democrats who haven’t made the connection between the cultural freedom they characterize and its economic corollary – a truly free market.
