How the Soviet Union saved Arnold Lockshin's life... (8)
/3/ Give Lockshin enough rope for him to hang himself. The five years I spent as a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin Madison were – except for my early childhood – my best years in the United States. Or so it seemed.
I was – like almost all honest Americans – naive about the machinations of the omnipresent U.S. lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning, torture, war and mass murder apparatus. I did not know that the spy setup organized against me in Madison also included my major professor in the Department of Biochemistry and all my lab-mates, my roommates, the Green Lantern Co-op where I took most of my meals, presumed “comrades” in anti-Vietnam war protests, etc.
It appeared that I had free rein and that somehow American “democracy” was sort of alive and well, at least as far as I was personally concerned. I was even elected graduate representative for the UW student council, was able to publish several articles in the student newspaper, The Daily Cardinal, and even get some letters to the editor published in the Madison press.( Collapse )
