They lie about marijuana. Tell you pot-smoking makes you unmotivated. Lie! When you’re high, you can do everything you normally do, just as well. You just realize that it’s not worth the fucking effort. There is a difference. — excerpt from Bill Hicks.
If you don’t think drugs have done good things for us, then take all of your records, tapes and CD’s and burn them. — excerpt from Bill Hicks’ 1993 “Revelations”.
Look at the rest of the flaming civil world calling for mercy, against you. There's absolutely no chance you may be wrong?
- DikDur (@Coltranized): I am a nonviolent American citizen. What are you going to do now that I utterly disapprove of your heinous atrocities? Monitor, raid, jail, silence, bomb or kill me, like you do to "terrorists" abroad, only because they're fitting of your vague demeaning definition of one? So anyone who denounces and rejects your establishment is deemed a terrorist, worth investigating, incriminating and perhaps silencing (forever)? You don't know justice, man. It's maddening as it is sickening. Stop believing in the failed American Dream. It's stopped existing. And if it still exists, the meaning drastically changed from a dream to a nightmare for anyone and everyone who are speechless, due to lack of money, which (to them, the establishment) translates as power—we don't have either. What freedom of speech do we really have against the multibillionaire corporations? What freedom? What speech? What we have is freedom from speech. That's a big difference. In legal/political language, certain words changes the whole meaning of a phrase you only think is what is being said—done on purpose. Bill Hicks had an wonderful, excellent quote that I'm always reminded of. It's beautiful, so to finish off here, I'll share that excerpt with you, again. If you can watch the entire Bill Hicks 1993 performance, it'd be even better. Here, I'll save you time and I'll add it to the source of this post. Get to it while you can.
- Excerpt from Bill Hicks' "Revelations" performance in 1993: 'We have figured it out. Go back to bed, America. Your government has figured out how it all transpired. Go back to bed, America. Your government is in control, again. Here. Here's American Gladiators. Watch this, shut up! Go back to bed, America. Here's American Gladiators; here is 56 channels of it. Watch these pituitary retards banging their fucking skulls together and congratulate you on living in the land of freedom. Here you go, America! You are free, to do as we tell you! You are free, to do as we tell you!'
- Bill Hicks: Kennedy, I love talking about the Kennedy assassination because to me it's a great example of, er, a totalitarian government's ability to, you know, manage information and thus keep us in the dark any way they — Oh, sorry wrong meeting; ah, shit. That's the meeting we're having tomorrow at the docks. [winks] I love talking about Kennedy. I was just down in Dallas, Texas. You know you can go down there and, er, to Dealey Plaza where Kennedy was assassinated. And you can actually go to the sixth floor of the Schoolbook Depository. It's a museum called 'The Assassination Museum'. I think they named that after the assassination. I can't be too sure of the chronology here but . . . anyway, they have the window set up to look exactly like it did on that day. And it's really accurate, you know, cos Oswald's not in it. "Yeah, yeh so wow that's cool." Painstaking accuracy, you know. It's true, it's called the 'Sniper's Nest'. It's glassed in, it's got the boxes sitting there. You can't actually get to the window as such but the reason they did that, of course, they didn't want thousands of American tourists getting there each year going [Mimes looking out of window] "No fucking way! I can't even see the road. Shit they're lying to us. Fuck! Where are they? There's no fucking way." Not unless Oswald was hanging by his toes, upside down from the ledge. Either that, or some pigeons grabbed onto him, flew him over the motorcade. . . surely someone would have seen that. You know, there was rumours of anti-Castro pigeons seen drinking in bars. . . someone overhead them saying 'coup, coup,' coo. Unbelievable. And you know what's wild, people's, er, attitudes in the States about it. Talking about Kennedy, people come up to me, "Bill, quit talking about Kennedy, man. Let it go. It's a long time ago — just forget about it." And I'm like alright, then don't bring up Jesus to me. As long as we're talking shelf life here. "Bill, you know Jesus died for you." Yeah, well it was a long time ago. Forget about it! How about this. Get Pilate to release the fucking files. Quit washing your hands Pilate —release the goddam files. Who else was on that grassy Golgotha that day? "Bill, it was just, you know, hur, taking over of democracy by a totalitarian government, let it go."
JFK (1991) and Revelations (1993)
- Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison in JFK (1991): Back, and to the left. Back, and to the left. Back, and to the left.
- Bill Hicks on JFK in Revelations (1993): [Mimes sniper, then mimes being shot in the head] Back and to the left, back and to the left, back and to the left, back and to the left. Which, by the way, that action you see Kennedy's head go through in the Zapruder film - caused by a bullet... [points behind him] comin from up there, ha. Yes, I know it looks to the layman or someone who might dabble in physics... this action here would be caused by a bullet coming from... well... [thinks] up here, did you see that? Did everyone see that? Yeah, but no. What happened was Oswald's gun went off, causing an echo to echo through the buildings of Dealey Plaza and the echo went by the limo on the left up into the grassy knoll hitting some leaves causing dust to fly out, which 56 witnesses testified was a gun shot, cos immediately... Kennedy's head went over. But the reason his head went over is cause the echo went by the motorcade one the left and he went "What was that?" So there, we have figured it out. "Go back to bed America, your government has figured out how it all transpired. Go back to bed America, your government is in control again. Here, here's American Gladiators. Watch this, shut up! Go back to bed America, here's American Gladiators. Here's 56 channels of it. Watch these pituitary retards bang their fuckin' skulls together and congratulate you on living in the land of freedom. Here you go America, you are free, to do as we tell you, you are free, to do as we tell you." [Mimes the brainwashed] "Oh good. Honey, I heard on the news that they've figured out that the gun, what happened is, is that there was an echo and Kennedy was, er, asking Jackie what it was, and that that's why his head flew u... Honey what time's Gladiators on? Are we missing it? I'm so glad we're free, Honey."
Bill Hicks' Revelations.
- Bill Hicks: I'm so sick of arming the world, and then sending troops over to destroy the fucking arms. You know what I mean? We keep arming these little countries, then we go and blow the shit out of them. We're like the bullies of the world, you know? We're like Jack Palance in the movie Shane; throwing the pistol at the sheepherder's feet.
- [Bill Hicks acts out the scene]
- Palance: 'Pick it up.'
- Sheepherder: 'I don't want to pick it up, mister; you'll shoot me.'
- Palance: 'Pick up the gun.'
- Sheepherder: 'Mister, I don't want no trouble, huh. I just came downtown here to get some hard-rock candy for my kids, some gingham for my wife. I don't even know what gingham is, but she goes. . . she goes through about ten rolls a week of that stuff. I ain't looking for no trouble, mister.'
- Palance: 'Pick up the gun.'
- [The sheepherder looks down at the gun and immediately looks back up, scared for his life. He takes a chance and quickly launches for it]
- [The sheepherder drops dead]
- Palance: You all saw em'. He had a gun.'
I’ll think what God meant to say! — Bill Hicks - Revelations, 1993.

As long as one person lives in darkness then it seems to be a responsibility to tell other people. — Bill Hicks.
The world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. The ride goes up and down, around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it’s very brightly colored, and it’s very loud, and it’s fun for a while. Many people have been on the ride a long time, and they begin to wonder, “Hey, is this real, or is this just a ride?” And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and say, “Hey, don’t worry; don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.” And we … kill those people. “Shut him up! I’ve got a lot invested in this ride, shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.” It’s just a ride. But we always kill the good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok … But it doesn’t matter, because it’s just a ride. And we can change it any time we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. Just a simple choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace. — Bill Hicks.
