Listening to John Walters on C-span, March 21, 2005
John Walters is the Director of ONDCP (Office for National Drug Control Policy) and was a guest on Washington Journal for an hour today.
Among his remarkable statements, Official Policy is clear: Marijuana is more dangerous than alcohol and tobacco. Marijuana is the most dangerous illegal drug there is. Marijuana is destroying our youth. To prove this, the Director said that more young people are being admitted to treatment programs for marijuana than for alcohol.
All this really proves is that there are more government agents manipulating the minds of our young people with these â€˜treatmentâ€™ programs administered by right wing professionals intent on indoctrinating their young minds with the closed minded religious fanaticism that drives their agenda.
I recall from my education that one of the evils of the communist empire is the â€˜re-educationâ€™ program used to correct the behaviors of those who did not comply with official party policy, no matter how right or wrong the policy may be. I was told that people were regularly imprisoned and their lives destroyed in order to break down resistance to â€˜official government policyâ€™. Clearly this is inhumane, and it is supposed to be one of the cultural norms that make the American experience so much better than the barbarianâ€™s ways.
Yet today there is a political force, funded by American Consumerism, that is doing exactly the same thing the communists were decried for, using cages, punishment, and brainwashing to indoctrinate and coerce those who do not comply with their particular view of things, no matter how absurd or false that view may be found to be. These fanatics require conformity at any cost and thrive on scandal. They love to stare as they pass a tragedy, eager to get a glimpse of blood. They love war and celebrate it with great pomp and ceremony every chance they get. Killers that rain death on innocent people from 30,000 feet through the eyepiece of a computer are rewarded with high honors and luxury living.
The workers, scientists, engineers, suppliers and politicians that conspire to equip and mobilize these warriors have grown dependent on the benefits of a war economy. They may not admit it, but their actions demonstrate; they love war, they are warmongers.
Pot smokers on the other hand really donâ€™t like war at all. Now it is clear why the government considers pot so evil! It is because pot smokers are difficult to brainwash into warriors. Alcohol users on the other hand are very easy to manipulate into killers, and there is a growing dependence on the economy of war. The â€˜Military Industrial Complexâ€™ isnâ€™t an abstract idea; it is a reality right now. Pot smokers donâ€™t even make good employees for the military industrial complex, so here is the reason for the statement by John Walters today; that marijuana is more dangerous than alcohol or tobacco; it is because they need to prepare the next generation of warriors and pot smokers are hard to recruit for indoctrination. This is why they need to expand the â€˜drug warâ€™ with more government programs and agents to monitor citizenâ€™s behavior.
