The War In Afghanistan Is A Good Thing (If You're A Drug-Dealer)

The “War on Drugs” and the “War on Terror” are more intertwined than that media and our elected officials would like us to think. And this became full front and center when the U.S.-led global crusades overlapped in Afghanistan, leaving in their wake a legacy of death, addiction and government corruption tainting Afghan and American soil. In the U.S., the War in Afghanistan is among the major contributing factors to the country’s devastating heroin epidemic.

Cops Use Faulty Test Kits to Incite Fear about THC in Water Supply — Scientists Say It’s Impossible

On Thursday, the residents of Hugo, population 750, started getting calls from local officials about the drinking water. They were told it was contaminated and to avoid drinking the water or letting their pets drink it, and even to avoid bathing in it. The purported danger came not from lead or arsenic or E. coli or any of the usual contaminants, but THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Colorado is one of two states that have legalized recreational cannabis use as well as medicinal, although Hugo has not permitted any cannabis facilities to be built in their jurisdiction.

How the Australian, British, and US Governments Shamelessly Helped Kill Countless People in Indonesia in 1965

The Hague-based International People’s Tribunal has ruled that the Indonesian regime that replaced Indonesian President Sukarno committed crimes against humanity in 1965. The governments of Australia, Britain, and the United States have also been pronounced guilty as complicit partners in the massacre of 500,000 to 1000,000 people or more in Indonesia. People were murdered in Indonesia due to their principles, political ideology, ethnic backgrounds, and opposition to foreign influence. Albeit the ruling is an important historical acknowledgment, the assistance that the Australian, British, and US governments provided to the coup and played in the massacres is not a secret.

Given we are eyeballs-deep in the US presidential election cycle, now seems a particularly appropriate time to share some observations on the topic of political propaganda. As a naturally curious fellow, some years ago - during the Clinton vs. Bush Senior contest - I became interested in the language and techniques used in political campaigning. So much so that I dedicated my daily study period to the topic for the better part of a week.

The “Drug War” is a Crony War: Corrupt cop comes clean, 50-60 convictions overturned, Cop goes to jail and asks for forgiveness (VIDEO)

The drug war destroys lives of innocent people. It incentivises police corruption. It incentivizes the distribution of hard drugs. It puts money into the pockets of organized crime. It often keeps people who need help from getting help. It undermines our very Constitution. The drug war is a failed and very expensive social experiment. We need to find another way.
