Re: <nettime> Adam Curtis: BUGGER

The history of the British secret state's incompetence is a rich field. Ezra Pound and WB Yeats were arrested as foreign agents while out walking during the time they spent at Stone Cottage near the Sussex coast. The incident is memorable because of Yeats' involvement in the renewal of interest in the Romantic poet William Blake, who was arrested on spying charges while on a sketching trip on the Medway in Kent, and again in Sussex on a charge of sedition. When Pound was arrested again for his sympathies with Mussolini (though not for his virulent anti-semitism) he noted "that free speech without free radio speech is as nothing'. Lessons everywhere
