tests, which are designed to
measure the amount
of VX nerve agent put on the clothing of people moving through VX-contaminated
areas or touching contaminated vehicles, and the amount of VX vapor rising from
these areas. VX operates by cutting off the
nervous system. VX
binds to the enzyme that transmits signals to the nerves and inhibits them.
Therefore the nerves become isolated and uncontrollable. The antidote,
atropine, is a toxin itself but it counteracts the effect of the VX by removing
it from the enzyme. It is an anti-nerve agent so does the reverse of the VX, a
nerve agent. Atropine is normally injected into the arm or thigh but for
gaseous attacks the atropine must go immediately into the heart.

"Threats to the modern individual tend to be man-made.
They are not the results of chance but are imposed on him by other persons
whose decisions he, as an individual, is unable to influence. Consequently he
feels frustrated, humiliated and angry. Today's society tries to
socialize us to a greater extent than any previous society. We are even told by
experts how to eat, how to
exercise, how to have sex, how to raise our kids and so forth. An
individual whose attitudes or behavior bring him into conflict with the system
is up against a force that is too powerful for him to conquer or escape from,
hence he is likely to suffer from stress, frustration, defeat. His
path will be much easier if he thinks and behaves as the system requires. In
that sense the system is acting for the benefit of the individual when it
brainwashes him into conformity. Freedom is restricted in part by psychological
control of which people are unconscious, and moreover many people's ideas of
what constitutes freedom are governed more by social convention than by their
real needs. - Theodore John Kaczynski"

Dr. Lester M. Crawford, Food and Drug
Administration Commissioner, pleads guilty to conflict of interest and false
reporting of ownership of stock as he made regulatory decisions affecting
corporations he held stock in.
Three-quarters of the clinical studies published in the three most respected
medical journals, the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of
the American Medical Association and the Lancet, are commercially
funded. Pharmaceutical corporation funding has left the FDA a captive of the
2009 "When the boundaries between industry and academic
medicine become as blurred as they are now,
goals of industry influence the mission of medical schools in multiple
ways. It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical
research that is published, or to rely on the judgement of trusted physicians
or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion,
which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of
The New England Journal of Medicine." -
Marcia Angell, 1/15/2009
2011 "It is
calculated that in 2011 prescription
medications were associated with two to four million people in the US
experiencing 'serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000
deaths.'" - Jeanne Lenzer
2012 "A wide-ranging surveillance operation by the FDA against
a group of its own scientists used an enemies list of sorts as it secretly
captured thousands of e-mails that the disgruntled scientists sent privately to
members of Congress, lawyers, labor officials, journalists and even President
Obama. Spy software (SpectorSoft) tracked their keystrokes, intercepted their
personal e-mails, copied the documents on their personal thumb drives and even
followed their messages line by line as they were being drafted. " - Eric
Lichtblau, New York Times,
"If clinical trials
become a commercial venture in which
public interest and desire overrules science, then the
social contract which allows
research on human subjects in return for medical advances is broken." -

website defines a new religious ideology to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of the religion aptly named The Truth of the Way of
Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no
leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings
and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal
relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of
reality in the hope of curing the
corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of
the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author.
Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is
considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones violence. To
the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already
occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the
human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world
condemning system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the
elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems.
Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point
of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined precipitously
over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and
more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general
through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been
preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological
operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
