“You cannot have capitalism in a democratic society because the money class will always own and control not only cultural societal aspects that are dominant but they will own and control the political class.” — Phil Rockstroh

Phil Rochstroh is a poet, lyricist and philosopher bard living in Munich, Germany. His mother escaped Nazi Germany after the Gestapo arrested her father. His father born on a Choctaw reservation and adopted out by white parents but did not learn about his origin until later in adult life. Phil grew up in Appalachia, lived in Manhattan and eventually expatriated to Germany.

I was inspired to ask Phil to be on the show by a recent essay he wrote: “The Banality of Evil of The Evil of Two Lessers + The Democratic Party’s Raison D’être Is To Co-Opt, Absorb, Marginalize, and Neutralize The Left.” But when we started talking, we immediately branched out to other topics including names; the legacy of our ancestors; how German youth helped spark the hippie movement; the drama, poetry & gods of ancient Greece; Appalachian culture; the alienation of contemporary life; Phil’s lifelong travels, and much much more.

  2. We the people with dignity and love for one another stand united. Against any force that has committed high treason punishable to the fullest extent of justice. We are one force not to be reckoned with.
