Cafe Hayek: How to Succeed in New Orleans

here in back of town on the back of my kitchen door, inscribed by a member of our local metaphysical philosopher coffeeshop society, 5+ years old considering the dust, it says:

"First we form our own state structure and declare ourselves---

The Sovereign State of Southeast Louisiana;

Second, we declare all previous contracts null and void;

Third, we take control of our oil coast rights;

Fourth, we take control of our natural gas resorces;

Fifth, we open our agricultural lands to the growth of hemp for textiles, building materials, and export."

The same prophet also wrote "It wouldn't be New Orleans without some guy singing in your driveway"

Come to think of it I hear far more helicopters than singing. It's oppressive. Let's succede and reverse the trend.

My door also says among other things- 'I don't care if wango tango is playing at les bon temps tonight-- I'm not going!'

Also recently re-taped up but originally printed by me 1/16/02- right before you know who's 1st inauguration- from Mumia Abu-Jamal -

"Contrary to popular belief, conventional wisdom would have one believe that it is insane to resist this, the mightiest of empires... But what history really shows is that today's empire is tomorrow's ashes, that nothing lasts forever, and that to not resist is to acquiesce in your own oppression. The greatest form of sanity that anyone can exercise is to resist that force that is trying to repress, oppress, and fight the human spirit"
