Poet, painter, pacifist, prophet – Gustav ‘Gusto’ Gräser (1879-1958) actively resisted BAU (Business As Usual) over 100 years ago and inspired a ton of people to think (and do) more laterally.

Introduced to me by Hermann Hesse (1877-1962), who was somewhat of a student of Gusto’s in the early 1900s, both these wonderful men feel like older brothers to me, or uncles maybe who, long ago, walked the treacherous path of non-mainstream existence.

True Status Quo Movers and Shakers in thoughts, words and deeds!

Gusto’s life shines a light on the numerous connections that tie him to other movers and shakers of Europe and the world at the time.

He consistently resisted conscription, lived as a hermit in a cave for years, influenced many famous writers, artists, and was jailed and exiled numerous times for speaking openly about trigger topics such as war, peace, nudity, humility, free love, and the environment.

Today, there is renewed appreciation for his life, work, and sacrifices, highlighting the awesome desire of ‘right doing’in humans on the one hand, and the active, perpetuated crushing of’right doing’ through the nation-, state-, and war machines, serviced by automaton human beings.

Gusto, you are not forgotten! Peace, brother.
