Skiing Down from the Moral High Ground
Posted by Dan Draney on September 22, 2005
Mike S. Adams, not your average college professor, gives an hilarous account of his encounter with one of the intellectual heirs of Abby Hoffman. You’ll need to read the whole article to really get the flavor, but here’s a nibble:
“Last winter I went to an actual place in North Carolina called Sugar Mountain. The occasion was a youth ski trip organized by a local church. I was a chaperone. One of the other chaperones was a former hippie from the 1960s. He’s not really a hippie anymore, although he’s still a liberal. Now he’s raising four kids.
I learned a lot about both the 60s and liberalism, just by spending four days in the mountains with that former hippie. I wrote this column to pass on what I learned. I would hate for my readers to have to experience such a trip firsthand in order to get the knowledge I obtained through so much frustration.”
