Example text

If you're interestedin protecting, you can't. I was very much a fan of the Guardian Angels. That's the answer to violent crime, right there. They should have regular patrols in all cities, and that would eliminate the whole crime situation. But nobody-particularly no politician-wants to eliminate any problems. Problems are what keep them in there. Anyway, some system of organized patrols is the obvious answer to that problem. JM: Obviously, an outfit like that would need to be formed locally. WB: It would have to be local.

The DEA doesn't want to seean effectivetreatment for narcotics. My God, where would they be if there weren't any drug addicts? There was a period back in the'60s when it seemed as if a genuinely enlightened attitude might be evolving. WB: Yes,it seemslike all the ground gainedin the '60s-in all sorts of areas-is now being lost. LM: Is this rightward swing an inevitable reaction? WB: No swing is inevitable. I'm not even convinced that what we're seeingis necessarilya swing. What we're seeingwith drug attitudes is certainly engineeredby the administration.

Far-seeingwas one of the things; the CIA has done a lot of experimentswith far-seeing. The idea was that agents could go and see enemy encampments and emplacements. I've read a number of books on the subject. Quite interesting, well documented. I usedthe idea in Cities of the Red Night with the character Yen I-ee. LM: You had your first hallucinatory visions when you were only about four years old. What kind of experienceswere these? WB: I wouldn't call them hallucinatory at all. If you seesomething, it's a shift of vision, not a hallucination.
