So he worked on MX (a complete flop) but still, at a time when nuclear weapons and the cold war raged; how many out there wouldn't have a crisis of
conscience behind that? Also worked on facial recognition software? Tracking people in the spirit of Big Brother.
he was in a Rock Band at the time of the Counter Culture Movement? In fact I'd say, the pinnacle
of the anti war, anti
establishment, counter culture movement in America. The last gasp of that as far as I'm concerned, no-one today can hold a candle to the efforts of
young Americans, students and 'Goddamn, long hair, barefoot, hippy protesters. Y'all crap on the movement today, but lionize the music of the era,
shame on everyone of you.
Based on forensic evidence and Kramer's emergency call to the police, authorities ruled his death as a probable suicide committed on the day he
was last heard from.
In lieu of the missing 'forensic evidence' (one single pic of the skeletal remains in the van), and the actual history of his private life... he was
a rock star, was he addicted to any substances, was his personal life in any crisis at the time, doctors reports, etc,. Was he being influenced by the
'pinko, commie leftists' (an establishment derogatory term for anyone coming out against the war in Vietnam) and his own conflict of interest existing
in both worlds?
My dad worked on nuclear weapons for Lockheed, but is a narcissist and doesn't bat an eye behind it. A musician and an artist like Kramer might have
more misgivings. I quit computers because I realized way back they would be primarily developed to monitor everyone and used in weapons development
to destroy and kill.
Pressured from both sides by a world caught up in endless Cold war rhetoric, including the Hot war in Vietnam, conflict of interest was sure.
Maybe he saw no other way out than to check out?
(Imo, speculation about time travel is distraction, might as well say he was engaged in top secret work on Big Foot.)
