In section 1 of this  poem Allen Ginsberg talks about  "the best minds of my generation" "which were destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix" This to me doesn't sound like what i would consider to be the best minds of a generation, this sounds like a crack head looking for a fix. In the 2nd Section he talks about Moloch, i look this up this was an "idolatrous god to whom children were sacrificed by placing them in fire" "Moloch is associated with war, government, capitalism, and mainstream culture"

I'm going to have to continue to write this blog after class on Monday, so ill actually have some ideas to continue to write about.
