Krassner, Paul — Confessions of a Raving Unconfined Nut

Posted on November 28th, 2012 in American History,American Society,Self-Identity by Barry

Blessed with a sense of absurdity, journalist and satirist Paul Krassner was characterized by the FBI as “a raving, unconfined nut.” He liked that and incorporated those words into the title of his revised auto-biography, “Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut:  Misadventures in the Counterculture.” Krassner wrote a lot about his personal philosophy, so when we spoke by phone on November 24, 2012, from his home near Palm Springs, California, we began when I asked him to tell us about his philosophy, what it is, and how it came to be.

The book Paul Krassner recommends is “Johnny Got His Gun” by Dalton Trumbo.
