John Lennon était-il un libertarien dans le placard?


by Bradley Doucet

When it comes to radical, left-wing icons, John Lennon is perhaps second only to Ernesto "Che" Guevara in the minds of many. But while the man who entreated us to "imagine no possessions" was certainly a radical of sorts, his actual socialist bona fides are more questionable.

I began to have my suspicions after watching the 2006 documentary The U.S. vs. John Lennon recently. Intrigued, I then read the extended, book-length version of the interview he and Yoko Ono gave to Playboy Magazine just a couple of months before he was shot dead in December 1980, and judging from this source, John Lennon was practically a libertarian.
