Can't remember where it came from Lee. First saw it on youtube a few years ago 2011/12 ish. Pretty sure I've posted it before. Probably around that time.

yeah Ginsberg got it, before him Brecht. remember Arturo Ui, he's in charge again. look out you boys and girls. politics played like an adolescent's video game (everything is reactive, blood in the pixels). hang on for the ride.
