In popular culture many paradigms exist alongside each other, none of which are right or wrong. There is no one real meaning to life, only a set of possible paths leading in many directions. The area that should be investigated, however, is the development of propaganda and its influence on the shaping of our shared symbol system, and the possible influence these systems may have on what Carl Jung referred to as “the collective unconsciousness.” Is there a telepathic field shared by all humanity? Or thousands of mini-fields competing for the telepathic airwaves?
A unique history of popular culture is explored, one that places Congo Square in New Orleans at its epicenter.

I started out writing black comedy, but I'm best known as the first reporter to document hip hop and the instigator of the film Beat Street. I also founded the Cannabis Cup, organized the first 420 ceremonies outside of Marin County, and launched the hemp movement with Jack Herer while writing some landmark conspiracy articles.
