“Burroughs: But there must be some modern painters you admire? Bacon: No, not many now. They’re all dead. There’s Mark Boyle, Richard Hamilton; I’m interested sometimes in what they do. But I’m afraid this isn’t really a country of painters – just Turner; at least we had Turner.”
Q: Is the destruction of the police machine still possible?
A: Possibly, yes. The machine is certainly on the defensive at the present time, and with enough resistance, worldwide, it is still possible. Of course the police machine isn’t going to be smashed until we destroy with it the whole concept of a nation. I see a future where guerilla armies of liberation have arisen in South and Central America and Africa. “We will march on the police machine. Everywhere, we will destroy it. We will destroy the machine and all its records, and we will destroy the house organ of police machine which goes under the name of conservative press.”
