    Barbara Graustark: How do you look back on your political radicalism in the early 1970s?

    Lennon: That radicalism was phony, really, because it was out of guilt. I'd always felt guilty that I'd made money, so I had to give it away or lose it. I don't mean I was a hypocrite. When I believe, I believe right down to the roots. But being a
    chameleon, I became whoever I was with. When you stop and think, what the hell was I doing fighting the American government just because Jerry Rubin couldn't get what he'd always wanted: a nice, cushy job.
