As a hardcore Hendrix fan, I would just like to say that Jimi never really spoke out against the Establishment. He wasn't a threat. He was a former
Screaming Eagle, honorably discharged after suffering a broken ankle on a jump. He actually supported the Vietnam War and believed in the Domino
Theory. Now, he didn't approve of war, and towards the end of his life his opinion on Vietnam began to change. He, like many others, started to see
the writing on the wall. It may be a cliché, but with Jimi it really was about the music. That's it. He had too much respect for the soldiers who
were fighting everyday. He saw them as brothers and he supported them, even when he started to disagree with it politically.
