1884 Austrian self-titled 'psychoanalyst' Sigmund
Freud was the first to broadly promote cocaine as a tonic to cure
Sigmund Freud published an article entitled "Über
Coca" which promoted the 'benefits' of cocaine, calling it a "magical" substance.
Sigmund Freud used cocaine
regularly, prescribed it to his girlfriend and his best friend and recommended
it for general use.
Sigmund Freud reported exhilaration and lasting
euphoria, which he said were the same as "the
normal euphoria of a healthy person".
Although Freud mentions many
possibly uses (in asthma,
stomach problems, anesthesia, and recovery from wasting diseases), most doctors
thought that cocaine's major therapeutic value would be in
Freud hypothesized that
cocaine could be
successfully used to intervene in alcoholism and
addiction, by slowly replacing alcohol
or opium with
cocaine, and then
discontinuing the cocaine.
noting that cocaine had led to "physical and moral decadence," Freud kept
promoting cocaine to his close friends, one of whom ended up suffering from
hallucinations with "white snakes creeping over his skin."
hypothesized: "For humans the toxic dose (of cocaine) is very high, and there
seems to be no lethal dose."
Contrary to this belief, one of Freud's
patients died from a high dosage he prescribed.
withdrawal effects of cocaine occur mostly in habitual users, when frequent use
begins to cause permanent neurobiological changes like they did in Sigmund
Freud (phantom itch).
"Just as a cautious businessman avoids
investing all his capital in one concern, so wisdom would probably admonish us
also not to anticipate all our happiness from
"People attempt to
to build up in its stead a false reality, a
fantasy, in which
unbearable features of reality are eliminated and replaced by others that are
in conformity with one's own wishes. But whoever, in desperate defiance,
sets out upon this path to happiness will, as a rule, attain nothing.
Reality is too strong for him. He becomes a
madman, who for the most part finds no one to help him in carrying through his
... DELUSION" - Sigmund Freud (cocaine/tobacco addict admission)
"One of our
most infamous contemporary laws is the 100 to1 difference in sentencing between
crack cocaine and powder cocaine. Under federal drug laws, prison sentences are
usually tied to the quantity of drugs the defendant trafficked. For example,
selling 5,000 grams of powder cocaine (about a briefcase full) gets a mandatory
10-year prison sentences, but so does selling only 50 grams of
crack cocaine (the weight of a candy
bar). Working for the House Judiciary Committee in 1986, I wrote the House bill
that was the basis for that law.
We made some terrible mistakes. If
logic prevails, in the next Congress we may finally see an end to one of the
most unjust laws passed in recent memory. And that might correct the biggest
mistake of my professional life. Because crack is no longer a big news story,
people mistakenly believe our anti-cocaine policy has worked. Not so. There is
no scarcity of cocaine. Since 1986, the price of cocaine has fallen and the
quality is better. Research from the US Sentencing Commission shows that
three-quarters of the federal cocaine defendants - powder and crack - are just
neighborhood dealers or couriers.
For a generation, anti-drug policy has
been built on factual mistakes and tough-sounding rhetoric." - Eric E.

"The End of
the World is a projection of this internal catastrophe: his i.e. the
paranoiac's subjective world has come to an end since his withdrawal of his
passion for it. And the paranoiac builds it again, not more splendid, it is
true, but at least so that he can once more live in it.
He builds it up by the work of
his delusions. The delusional formation, which we take to be the
pathological product, is in reality an attempt at recovery, a process of

saw them as if they were printed on a piece of paper floating in the

Jews have a disproportionate number of mental defectives, idiots, and
imbeciles. It is well known that a large percentage of neurasthenics and
neurotics are Jews.
In Europe, blindness, deafmutism, idiocy, and insanity are from
two to five times as frequent among Jews as among Gentiles

personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the
knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has
enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are
