This is really the email I want to send Craig Bergland and his committee. But by HempCity providing a place to store this information, it is possible to preserve a discussion so that the best of it can be passed on and others can come to condense the knowledge and preserve it in what might be thought of as pill form.
I am somewhat tired tonight, but it makes it easier for me if I feel like I am addressing one person and just talking instead of being in composition mode.
It is all fucked up beyond belief. We are a fascist country and nobody says fascist. What I will do here at HempCity is record this so that someone in the future might benefit from it.
You should know by now that all I try to do is have an honest voice and that I am well read. I advocate a way of thinking called zoom out, that says zoom out until you can get on the same page with someone.
The problem with the country is that there is no talk of big picture. Television is what destroyed the country as people's minds turned to mush and the art of conversation was lost along with the passion of reading and letter writing also.
Anyway, the biggest statement I can make on dword prohibition follows.
The Prohibition of 1914 as Amended is a broad slavery.
That is big picture. That is why drug prohibition is treason. It is a type of slavery. There are a million people in prison over an act that did not hurt anyone. And it cannot be left out that the CIA is all about controlling the profits of addictive substances from plants. The pill companies control the profits of addictive chemicals and there are probably more people addicted to pills than cocaine and heroin, but who knows because the question is not asked, much less answered.
What interest me most in Nevada if it passes is how they get around the federal hegemony meant to permeate everything and now at the edge of thought crimes. Federal cannabis prohibition all about stopping state experimentation. There is not a chance in hell a fascist federal government will allow any patch of cannabis to be grown in Nevada. Here we will see the DEA act as police profits for the pill industry.
If you could find the sales figure for any quarter, or any month, for the pill industry it would surprise me. It is all but national security. My thinking is cannabis is so ubiquitous and safe that if sales are running $250 billion a year, Free Cannabis could cut it too $200 billion. One thing that waits to be seen is how using cannabis in pain can reduce opiate use, which is important because opiate use can lead to addiction quickly and has to be carefully supervised. But more than that, is that cannabis really does work and you can ask anyone that uses pot that one joint instantaneously cures rage. But here you get into medical studies that prohibition prevented. Pharmaceuticalization of cannabis could easily be $50 billion in ten years. Easily. The feds will not allow pot to be sold in Nevada. This is a fascist country that imposed CP on the world in the first place and they know it is all a fraud.
Anyway, if you want to know the best thing the Green Party could do? They need to ask the question "Is the Prohibition of 1914 as amended a type of slavery?"
We do not need to listen to government. We do not need to listen to the talking heads. The think tanks are about paying people to appear on television as the need of the controlled media arises. It is all a giant show. There is no need to watch the show. The country needs to unplug and ask the questions and someone has to collect and present the best answers.
The government always points to the substance when what we should be concerned about is policy. The policy is dword prohibition, but government always points to MJ. I use dword more for the benefit of those that follow than any other reason.
It would be of great importance to have a contest that ask the question I posed. But thank goodness HempCity will record it for us, for all that follow so that some day people will look at policy from the perspective that it is modern slavery.
So I started a thread at HempCity titled "Prohibition of 1914 as Amended is a broad slavery"- http://www.hempcity.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6557#6557
I really have forever to compose it, because HempCity allows editing indefinitely. And for now the answer is not begging. What needs done is for someone to ask the question and press for an intellectual answer.
Now in education, watch the watch is on testing. It is testing, testing, testing and always nonstop testing. Let us say I was Lt. Governor of Nevada and the governor had died and today I was sworn in. I make a statement that there will be no more testing or talk of testing. What would that do?
Really, would people get excited? Wouldn't it be like "Thank god, all that bullshit around testing is given a rest? Now in NC you have 100 counties all with a board of education. What would be learned by the NC Department of Education ask the theoretical question to see what could be learned from all those people sitting at desk in administration making $50 to $70 thousand a year. What could be learned if an example of one county were made. Let us say one county was so bad on testing, they refused to participate and all the students agreed to a zero.
But here is another thing. If I were governor I would want to eliminate children carrying twenty pounds of books home and then back to school. It is a type of goosestepping. It wears them out and sends dread to their head before they ever get out of bed.
Why would you carry a whole book anyway? Isn't that what studying chapters is all about? When you are studying Jamestown, why do you carry home the Civil War? Why do need books to transport anyway. What if an effort were made to prohibit textbooks. This is the year 2006. I at 53 would want to read on my computer, if I were taking a class. It is easier. It is not outrageous to think that students do not need to carry books.
But books are big business and things like chemistry do not change like daily news. Once you get one book you could leave the old book online and have version 2 up. If you did not like your NC book and found Nevada's best, you could read theirs. Why doesn't the Education Department in Washington have every course from preschool through high school online.
You would think that we could buy computers as cheaply as we do books and that having to use computers, we would teach computer literacy at the same time and make it common knowledge where the child grows up with a computer and computer literate parents.
But out of all the local television programs do you here the idea of doing away with transporting whole books mentioned or eliminating them by highschool. Why, you would think you were asking why with all the billions spent across the country can no one state make and publish its own books instead of paying $50 a piece for them or whatever ridiculous price it is?
All thought is herded? There is no critical thought on policies? That is what Red and Blue politics is about, keeping thought (questions) within the margins.
Now if you look at what I wrote about substance harm reduction you see it points a lot to fascism and the harms of government. The harms of government include the new for of slavery that exist including wage slaves. It includes the huge sums of money it takes. It includes purposefully consolidating the media. It includes imperialism. It includes medical fascism where the FDA is just another protection racket just like defense/offense and the dword prohibition laws.
Now if I went to PI and ask for all papers that addressed the answer to "What are the harms that wrongful government imposes on us?" Do you think I could get one result? Now I say when you get 10 results to that question you have a list.
Now I am going to explain Victory by List. It is a strategy just like Desert Storm. I regard it as a proper noun. Victory by list says, I am going to put up my top 10 links and let everyone else put up theirs. Now Victory by List says we vote. The best link gets 10 points. The second best gets 9. The third best gets 8. The tenth best gets 1. It lets the cream rise to the top. It allows for community consensus.
I am so tired I could not read today. I had a little output on the vocabulary list. People are controlled with the vocabulary of the media. Well here is the vocabulary I will use in the thousand words in the composition I talked about in the link above- http://www.hempcity.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6554#6554
This is meant to tell a story of who we are and the importance of words as it is meant to support the thousand words I will compose.
Words to Improve Upon is an idea- proper noun. It says this especially in regards to the prevelance of threads on messageboards. When I say something it really establishes the floor. When people add to a thread, if someone would come along and take the all presented in the thread, they should be able to compose a better floor in the next thread.
The real problem is that illusion has such a hold that people think the US is goody-goody. What makes studying CP and understanding how wrong it all is, is that the goody-goody feeling should all be gone. But the problem about talking about CP is it keeps from asking even the biggest of questions on the policy of substance prohibition, which includes milk from a cow that was delivered from the farm from the time man gathered in cities and might well be in most parts of the world. Don't know. All thought is inward and nobody is asking questions.
I am going to put this up at PI because it adds to community thought and understanding. I am way too tired to participate in conversation. I put it up knowing anyone and everyone can skip over it which does not bother me a bit.
What is getting lost in all the words is that the real strategy the pot legalizers need besides presenting the policy of drug prohibition as a type of slavery, which it is, is that getting a governor to pardon the pot prisoners is the best step they could make next year. If MPP or NORML had strategy they would get a candidate and get behind them with money and speeches. Youtube could start carrying the prohibition is slavery message at any time. They should not wait. They should have a candidate for governor now on youtube saying he is going to pardon the pot prisoners. But what can you say when your big organization, NORML, only calls for decriminalization? Sounds like gatekeeper to me.
We are slaves to the corporations and the government is the overseer.
