I took a deep breath and realized that I was home free. I could quit school, travel the land and no longer worry about the draft. I also realized that the lottery took the wind out of the sails of the anti-draft movement and co-opted so many who, in a moment, were no longer at risk of being drafted.
So I stayed in school and continued to be active in the anti-war movement at the Univ. of Wisconsin and studied social history with Harvey Goldberg. He imparted to me, and many, many others, a profound sense of the history of struggle against capitalism and imperialism and the need to continue the struggle in the our lives.
