Inspirational Quote of the Day: A Profound Thought About Happiness

Wikipedia

William Seward Burroughs II (/ˈbʌroʊz/; February 5, 1914 – August 2, 1997) was an American writer. Burroughs was a primary figure of the Beat Generation and a major postmodernist author whose influence is considered to have affected a range of popular culture as well as literature. Burroughs wrote eighteen novels and novellas, six collections of short stories and four collections of essays. Five books have been published of his interviews and correspondences. He also collaborated on projects and recordings with numerous performers and musicians, and made many appearances in films. He was also briefly known by the pen name William Lee.

He was born into a wealthy family in St. Louis, Missouri, grandson of the inventor and founder of the Burroughs Corporation, William Seward Burroughs I, and nephew of public relations manager Ivy Lee. Burroughs began writing essays and journals in early adolescence, but did not begin publicizing his writing until his thirties. He left home in 1932 to attend Harvard University, studied English, and anthropology as a postgraduate, and later attended medical school in Vienna. In 1942 Burroughs enlisted in the U.S. Army to serve during World War II, but was turned down by the Office of Strategic Services and Navy, after which he picked up the drug addiction that affected him for the rest of his life, while working a variety of jobs. In 1943, while living in New York City, he befriended Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, and out of their mutual influence grew the foundation of the Beat Generation, which was later a defining influence on the 1960s counterculture.

Much of Burroughs’s work is semi-autobiographical, primarily drawn from his experiences as a heroin addict, as he lived throughout Mexico City, London, Paris and Tangier in Morocco, as well as from his travels in the South American Amazon. Burroughs accidentally killed his second wife, Joan Vollmer, in 1951 in Mexico City with a pistol during a drunken “William Tell” game; he was consequently convicted of manslaughter. Burroughs found success with his confessional first novel, Junkie (1953), but he is perhaps best known for his third novel Naked Lunch (1959), a highly controversial work that was the subject of a court case after it was challenged as being in violation of the U.S. sodomy laws. With Brion Gysin, he also popularized the literary cut-up technique in works such as The Nova Trilogy (1961–1964).

Drug addict, homosexual, anti-government freedom fighter, William Seward Burroughs:

  1. Do leftist and Marxist sites include comments by Hitler with photos and bios? Do Jewish sites put up pictures of David Duke with quotes and bios?
    William Burroughs was one of the worst of the worst. A bad egg, druggie, pornographer and a chum of some horrible Jews.

    ” after which he picked up the drug addiction that affected him for the rest of his life, while working a variety of jobs. In 1943, while living in New York City, he befriended Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac”.
    Notice that none of these three slimeballs were fighting for their country against the Japs or the Germans. They were fighting for Stalin and Marx and did so for the rest of their lives.

  2. I have read all of his works. Truly degenerate stuff. (Although “The Naked Lunch” basically predicts our situation in 2017–even though it was published in 1959). I still own a few of the books. In “Cities of the Red Night” a set of time traveling pirates get in with a crew of demonic entities who have decided to bring AIDS to Earth. They defect to the demonic side out of lustful need to procreate their lifestyle; so they team up, and bring “liberalism” to Madagascar and Africa, all the while fucking 8 year old boys on these clipper ships that float in and out of time. Whenever they want to “time warp” to another dimension, they have an orgy, and while they simultaneously ejaculate, they slice the throat of an innocent victim. You really have to read this book. It is actually a thing…

      • That is actually how these rituals began. Necrophilia began as a way of trying to understand life and death; it became gradually ritualized into living content, but as an abstract communication with dark forces. If you look into the Black Mass, originally it required semen, menstrual blood, and red wine mixed in a goblet that the supplicant had to drink before the alter of God, thereby blaspheming His name. For the gay or pedo, although they are most likely unaware of such things, they are still performing a blasphemy every time they do these acts, and our elite only promote it further as they evidently desire to take us into darkness…

  3. The Christ-killers are always behind advocating for these freaks and pushing them as some kind of “heroes’ or anti-heroes. Wretches.

    Makow must have read your post (if not, you guys are in “truther sync”), as his guest article dated yesterday 5/26, is regarding this very thing (though Burroughs is not mentioned but other writers are):
