Truth vs. Cynical Drug War
The Drug War is Cynical but Truth can Solve the Problem
The Mirriam Webster's Deluxe Dictionary (10th Collegiate Edition, 1998)
defines cynical as "contemptuously distrustful of human nature and motives"
This describes a fundamental problem at the root of the Drug War. This
attitude means that there is no room for drug laws based on fact and reason
while there is the cynical attitude that drugs make people behave in
People do not take drugs because they want to get into violent or dishonest
states of mind. They take them "to feel good". The government policies
that make them criminals for doing so are based on the cynical belief that
these substances produce negative behavior. But the negative behavior is
really due to the enforcement of bad legal policies that make criminals out
of folks who are doing something to their own bodies that they think makes
them "feel good", doing something which they are not going to stop doing
until they find something that works better for them.
The health problems associated with illegal drugs, the addictions and the
crimes are all results of the stigma and attitude of secrecy that results
from these bad policies and laws, and the enormous economic costs that this
illegality produces. This high cost factor is at the root of the real
criminal activities associated with illegal drugs and it is what makes
illegal drugs the funding source that it is for the covert weaponization of
populations both foreign and domestic.
The present drug policy laws are very close to laws that simply outlaw a
person's freedom to choose what makes them "feel good". If they are not
reformed then crime will continue to increase.
But the real crime is being committed by the lawmakers and enforcers of
these laws themselves which cause the suffering of innocent people due to
the "outcast stigma" in daily life, the arrests, property seizures,
imprisonment, deaths from hard drug overdoses, health problems, the
oppression of the poor people who grow the plants from which the illegal
drugs come and their domination by drug lords, and by the worldwide military
actions largely supported by the CIA as evidenced by copious documentation
including its own admissions regarding the Iran-Contra drugs for gun
smuggling detailed in the Inspector General's Report volume 2 but still not
widely known to the public. (see http://www.copvcia.com )
Yes, The Drug War is a cynical war on innocent people and it has reached the
proportions in these times of warranting its understanding as a "low
intensity" Third World War. With these mechanations behind the scenes, the
latest front of this hidden battle may grow into a full-fledged WWIII from
the current Balkan War where the US is supporting the KLA drug dealing
allies of the CIA in its ongoing orchestrated program of destabilizations to
take over the land everywhere possible from its indigenous inhabitants for
transnational corporate exploitation of energy, human, and mineral
If ignorance was classified as a drug, the American people and their leaders
might be called its greatest addicts.
Yes, I definitely think the Drug War can be accurately described as cynical.
By definition, the only antidote to the cynicism of the drug war is to be
understanding and trustful of human nature and motives. Since most people
are poisoned by and addicted to distrust, this antidote is not so easy to
find or to swallow. This is where it becomes a spiritual issue and to get
the antidote one must learn to trust in truth itself as each person's path
leads one to it.
Truth itself is the antidote and weapon to end the drug war and all wars.
When truth itself makes everyone feel good, only then will all the drug,
war, and violence problems be solvable. Only then may peace, prosperity,
and mutual respect prevail on Earth.
Truth itself is the best "drug" and it is the only known antidote for
addiction to ignorance.
Take it all the time and you will really feel good.
