Advocate
    (May 23, 1941- )
    Born in Lansing, Michigan
    Birth name was Rennard Davis
    Member of Students for a Democratic Society
    Anti-Vietnam War protestor
    Was one of the Chicago Seven charged with conspiracy and inciting a riot at the 1968 Democratic convention

    He became a follower of teenaged guru Maharaj Ji, and declared that the political and countercultural movements of the 60s were just the forerunners for Ji bringing about world peace.
    Like fellow Chicago Seven defendant Jerry Rubin, he went from Yippie to yuppie, becoming a venture capitalist.
    He dispenses New Age-y babble as wisdom, such as ‘Our entire reality is a psychological construct, and all our experiences are coming from ourselves.’
    He won the Virginia and East Coast 4-H chicken judging championships.
    The plans he drew up for protesting at the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago said all demonstrations ‘should be nonviolent and legal.’
    He was clubbed on the head when the Chicago police charged into demonstrators in Chicago’s Grant Park (August 28, 1968).
    In the mid-70s, before founding his venture capital firm, he worked for John Hancock insurance, where a fellow agent commented, ‘We expected him to be a freak. But you couldn’t ask for a nicer person.’
