Tom Hayden died the other day. That made me sad.
Tom Hayden was an American hero. A man who had beliefs and wanted to change things. And fuck you, Mark Levin, he did it through the system many thought he wanted to bomb into oblivion.
An original member of the Chicago 8, Hayden was one of the men railroaded by a justice system that NOW acquits actual criminals for violent protests because of freedom. Hayden was a serious man, not an activist clown like Abbie Hoffman or a con artist like Jerry Rubin. Hayden was an original member of the anti war movement, not an opportunist looking to cash in later.
Tom Hayden is gone now. A man who mattered.
I will miss you.
