Julian Heicklen was born at an early age. At 8 days, he was circumcised. This was so traumatic that he did not walk or talk for a year. There was nothing unusual about his early development. He went to Cornell University to become the usual engineering nerd.
Unfortunately, while in high school, his uncle gave him a book about the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution. To complicate matters, while at Cornell, he read Les Miserables by Victor Hugo and The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand.
He transformed from the ordinary engineering nerd into a raving maniac about freedom. Ever since, he has engaged in all sorts of socially unacceptable behavior. He stole a house, won the Yom Kippur war for Israel, corresponded with Soviet Premier Yuri Andropov, tried to sue the U.S. Post Office, smoked pot at the main gate of Penn State University every Thursday for 3 years, had a municipal law declared unconstituional, and distributed subversive material at 20 U. S. District Courthouses. He has been arrested 29 times and incarcerated 9 times.
