A speech delivered outside Albee Hall, March 4, 1968. The bulk of the lecture involves Leary's beliefs about marijuana and LSD use, societal fears about kids "turning on and waking up," and rumors invented by the government about recreational drug use. He tells the audience they're going to have to "drop out or cop out...drop out is an internal personal decision...your posture, your inner-stance...detaching from anything meaningless...or that would lead you to continue as a replaceable part."
Leary, Timothy, "Timothy Leary" (2022). Poetry at Bard. 109.
