Breaking the Taboo
If you can’t control drug use in a maximum security prison how could you control drugs in a free society?

www.youtube.com Video from : www.youtube.com
Narrated by Morgan Freeman, this groundbreaking new documentary uncovers the UN sanctioned war on drugs, charting its origins and its devastating impact on countries like the USA, Colombia and Russia. Featuring prominent statesmen including Presidents Clinton and Carter, the film follows The Global Commission on Drug Policy on a mission to break the political taboo and expose the biggest failure of global policy in the last 50 years.

Watch the full documentary here.

Peace Out!
Jonny!

PostRe: Politics by RubberJonny

So how is everyone enjoying the Police State? I would say you are i love with it since no one appears to care about the heinous crimes our government is committing against us. I'm at a loss as how to handle the situation. All i can do is inform but all i hear back is 'that's not cool [but i'm going to do nothing about it]'.

Some of you may be thinking: "Police State? That's an extreme/unrealistic view of our government", but i say nay! The illusion of freedom and the misconception that as long as there is Democracy the government cannot reach such extremes is what keeps you idle as they roll over you and your rights.
  • We are under constant surveillance in every aspect of our lives
  • The internet is already subject to censorship but soon it will be censored on a mass level
  • The Police freely harass, assault, arrest and detain innocents without repercussion
  • There are many, and continue to be, underhanded policies made to further fill politicians' pockets and keep the people subservient

I understand too much information is overwhelming and leads to further inaction so i will make this primarily about the most recent (known) threat to our freedoms and that is the "Great Firewall". ISPs will be mandated to implement this mass censorship app that has an all encompassing checklist of filtered content forcing you to ASK PERMISSION to view LEGAL content on the internet connection you are paying for. Not only do you have to suffer the personal embarrassment of 'declaring' you wish to view pornographic content if you wish to use an (slightly more) open internet but you are also placing yourself on a list that will give reason for the government to keep a closer eye on you; further increasing the surveillance upon yourself and your family as well as this information very likely being used against you if you ever act in a way displeasing to the powers that be.

I implore you to seek out as much information as you can about this matter and more but for now the very least you can do is sign the petitions and support organisations such as the Open Rights Group.

This shouldn't come as any real surprise. Saddening yes surprising no. And as long as we have mid right policies and governments ie cons and new labour then things will not change. The policy coming into force regarding Internet usage is both Ineffectual and ill conceived. I agree that only by knowing more can we hope to change anything.

My only concern is there are no other choices in uk politics. Ukip is a joke with the real prospect of bnp support. Lab/con/ld are all the same and would support these policies to continue


The real danger is the nhs. Just wait for the words private consortium to run mid staffs hospital. Btw as I've still got good contacts in certain trusts that have been in the news I can say a lot of the crap the media is riding like a bound whore is overblown and false

So... any thoughts about your government action? Seems like you are heading more and more to a world similar to the one in 'V for Vendetta'

It's called a Police State and we are living in one. To answer your question: We have no thoughts on our government's actions; we are happily compliant living in a bubble of ignorance.

You should join us! The government will even take and copy all the data from your computer, phone, camera, and everything else, just so we can get to know you a little better! And for your own safety, of course.

Remember: The government always knows what is best and freedom is dangerous!

As you say, the problem is the ignorance of good men (as quoted from Boondocks Saints). Most people are just pacified by stupid TV and mainstream media. I do notice that more and more people are waking from their slumber though, but it's still not enough, and I don't know if it will be to late when we are enough. And I bet that even discussing this here will flag us somewhere... Fuck what the world is becoming.
