Culture has CULT in it. Are cultures just advanced cults? Are cults degenerated cultures?
I was thinking that the Grateful Dead created a culture. But I was imagine them as more than a culture; it’s kind of cult like. They were literally just a band of friends and after playing their music they created an entire society that kind of functions independently from normal society. They created a nationwide cult.
And Jerry was their leader.
(Jerry starts his dreamy solo.)
Universities are cults in a way. They are cults you pay to get into, and then it’s this fun tribal thing of school versus school. That’s so European, to have different clubs fighting against each other, except in America, its clubs are their schools. So weird. To feel “school pride” is such a strange concept.
