... and still many of FZs announcements made on his 50th birthday are actually true:<br><br>FZ: Well, I don&acute;t know whether struggling against American Society will guarantee that You get to be fifty, I mean there been other people who struggled against the US government in this country and wound up to be disappeared.<br><br>INTERVIEWERS: Concerning Your own statement about plastic people. Do we still need to "freak out" to become real human beings?<br><br>FZ: Well I don&acute;t know whether the word "freak out" is the proper one to use but I&acute;ll garantee that there is plastic people everywhere, and I wouldn&acute;t say it was just George Bush or just Dan Quayle or just James Baker the third or Dick Cheney or any of those other characters. I mean... just about every government You can find, has certain plastic person representatives talked the way in it... I think that... what is being lost during this tail-end of the twentieth century, is the will on the part of the especially the average American to be an individual. There are people that seem to be to willing to just conform and be moulded into some bland opedient nothingness and.. I think that&acute;s always better for an individual&acute;s mental health and for the society at large to have more individualism expressed. That doesn&acute;t means that individualism has to lead to a lack<br>of co-operation. Individuals can co-operate. But I advise for a happy and healthy life that You try and maintain Your individuality because each person has a worth as a<br>human being, and when You submerge that in order to just get along or to be an opedient member of some political party or organisation, You&acute;ll lose something and<br>ultimately it&acute;s going to have negative effects. It&acute;s more difficult to be an individual today in the Unites States becuse the laws are changing ,the social pressures are<br>changing, the types of retaliation that can be brought against a person who wishes to be an individual are more prevalent today. You know the... the economic risks You take if You open Your mouth and speak out about certain things. Most people won&acute;t take that risk because they are... they want the security that comes when keeping<br>Your mouth shut.<br><br>INTERVIEWERS: Has it become worse now than in the sixties?<br><br>FZ: Yes it&acute;s much worse in the US for freedom of speech. It&acute;s almost getting to the point where it&acute;s a charade for this country to brag other nations how free it is and how<br>democratic it is. But internally if You understand what&acute;s going on here, You&acute;ll see that the extreme right wing element of US government is clamping down on all possible means of free speeches. Not just the speech itself, but they are controlling the means by which You can speek, by placing labels on records, by making even more restrictions on films, by having restrictions on radio and television broadcasting.<br><br>to be continued....<br>(complete interview here: http://home.swipnet.se/bengt-jonsson/za ... m#Birthday<br>

Speaking about ''words of wisdom''...<br><br>I once saw an interview with Jim Morrison on the telly, i don't know exactly how old it was, but Jim had a beard and sunglasses on, so it must have been in the last year of his life i guess...<br><br>The interviewer asked Jim how he saw the future of music...<br><br>Jim's answer was that he forsaw the future of music to be one person surrounded by all sorts of electronic devices in order to create music.<br><br>And it seems Old Jim was right about that, wasn't he ?<br><br>Did someone say Underworld ???
