He published The Realist from 1958-2001. A magazine of satire that afflicted the powers that were. Paul Krassner along with Abbie Hoffman launched the Yippies to inspire young people in the late 60s, mixing rock and roll with politics. And it worked. The 21st century occupy movement is a direct outgrowth. On this discussion Krassner talks about his good friend Lenny Bruce and the subversive power of humor. How satire is real fake news but fake news is not satire. Things that have to be said. Like how Trump lifted the boulder off the white supremacists and other undesirables hiding underneath. Krassner is a man of history and looks optimistically to the future. And don’t forget to check the Disneyland memorial orgy on his website!
