Simply make all drugs available and sell

This will require heroic honesty.

innumerable times marijuana was a 'gateway' drug that was very likely to cause
the user to graduate to hard drugs.
In elementary school I had peers
who said, "Take 2 aspirin and wash them down with
will give you a nice high."
Over-the-counter painkillers are probably
the most widely abused chemicals.
And if the over-the-counter
painkillers have been abused why not abuse the PHRMA in mom's medicine cabinet?
When I finish elementary school and started junior high school it was a
whole new story.
These boys and girls were braver and more experienced
- they had begun using drugs already.
And need you really ask the which
drugs were being used?
Those that were the most easily accessible -
tobacco and alcohol.
Cigarettes were number one with cheap wine and
beer a close second.
And of course there was already quite a few that
were dipping into Mom's medicine cabinet and Dad's liquor cabinet." -

medication. It affects, quite literally, every kind, every type of crime

real issue is social justice and
equal access to housing,

middle-class Americans take for granted.
We persist with behavior modification, requiring

narcotic, meaning it has no medical value.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to view the world to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged 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 a system of philosophy
named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - 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 spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie 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 economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex of America 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.
