The US Has a Vicious, Murderous Government Because Most US Citizens are Vicious, Murderous People Who Don’t Care About the Rest of the World

You like to “think outside the box” do you?   So do we: in fact, we have lived “outside the box” for so long we have forgotten what it’s like to think “inside the box”.  So here’s some “outside the box” thinking for you.  You’re welcome in advance!

As a public service to our working-class sisters and brothers around the world, we would like to take a moment to explain what, to the 95.5% of the world’s population living outside the United States apparently appears to be an unsolvable riddle: “Why is it that the seemingly nice, friendly people of the United States have such a vicious, murderous, warmongering government?”

The answer, brothers and sisters, is simple: the vast majority of the citizens of the United States are vicious, selfish, ignorant cretins who don’t give a shit how many of you are murdered by the US military so long as the standard of living in the US enables them to barely survive.  We like to tell people that so long as the price of gasoline remains below $5.00/gallon, the vast majority of the citizens of the United States will continue to not give a shit how many innocent women and children are butchered annually by a raping, murdering, torturing US military that the majority of US citizens consider to be “heroes” to the last man.   So long as the price of gasoline keeps falling, you can expect these scum to continue to give the US military a blank check to go ahead and kill as many people as the US capitalist class feels is necessary to maintain the economic status quo here in the United States.  And the rest of you – the 95.5% of the world’s non-US citizens – can all go fuck yourselves.

No one else is going to be honest enough to tell you that that is really what the vast majority of the shitty “American people” of 2014 think.  They’re so stupid that not 1 in a thousand of them even KNOW that the US only makes up 4.4% (and falling) of the world’s population.Fuck the rest of the world!is a common statement we hear from US workers all the time.  Living here in the United States is like living in an insane asylum full of chronological adults barely functioning at a grade-school level.

No one here in the United States – or in the rest of the world except ourselves – wants to address the fact that the overwhelming majority of the people of the United States have become so corrupted morally by the utter degeneracy of the US capitalist class that they simply do not give a rat’s ass how many men, women and children are murdered every year by “their” government in its endless and phony war on “terrorists” – terrorists who have largely been recruited, organized, trained and armed by “their” US Government.  So long as the stupid and selfish citizenry of the USA can barely afford to feed, clothe, shelter and amuse themselves they will continue to not give a shit about anything being done to their fellow human beings all over the world. by the execrable US capitalist class and its bought-and-paid-for government and its military war machine.

The US working class has been so completely brainwashed into believing the disgusting US corporate philosophy that “greed is good” and that every human being is responsible for their own welfare and owes absolutely nothing to any of their fellow human beings.   This philosophy is extremely popular in the US among its workers – a philosophy, by the way fully embraced by what large numbers of the stupid US working class sees as an “alternative” to the Republican and Democratic parties – the inane and inhumane “free-markets-for-free people” “philosophy” of  Libertarianism.   It is for this reason that we warn our working class sisters and brothers around the world that US workers in 2014 have come to resemble their closest historical precursors – the “good German citizens of Hitler’s Germany.

In fact, the citizens of the United States are almost exactly like the citizens of Nazi Germany in their self-imposed faux-ignorance of the realities of what their government is doing to the rest of the world – with one major exception, which only serves to make the viciousness of today’s US citizen all the more repulsive: in Nazi Germany, there was pervasive censorship of the news media far more comprehensive than what we see in the US today.  Though the German people in Hitler’s era were able to listen to shortwave radio broadcasts from around the world, they were subject to severe penalties for doing so.  In the United States today, though there is vast but usually subtle self-censorship of the news media and television, there is the Internet – and no criminal penalties for utilizing it to inform oneself about how the rest of the world perceives the USA.  But Americans are so apathetic and, frankly, stupid that they don’t want to be bothered using the Internet to read the vast amount of first-hand reports of US military atrocities being daily committed all over the world.  Instead, US citizens use their computers to entertain themselves and to keep themselves distracted from what is going on in the world… because when it comes right down to it, they simply don’t give a shit.

Like the vast majority of German workers under the Hitler regime, the vast majority of the US workers under the bloodthirsty Obama regime delude themselves into believing that things aren’t really all that bad; or if they are, that “there is nothing that we (meaning the US working class of 175,000,000 or so people) can do about it”.   That facile excuse for not giving a shit is utilized by almost every “nice” US citizen you ask about it.  Think we’re lying?  Give it a try!  If you know a native-born American citizen – black, white, Hispanic, Asian – it don’t matter – ask them about any important issue regarding the US government’s vicious policies being carried out in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria or Israel.  We’ll wager that you will quickly elicit either a blank stare accompanied by the sound of crickets chirping… and then a savage reaction when you challenge them on their offhand attitude to the monstrous brutalities being carried out all over the world in the THEIR NAME, utilizing weapons systems paid for with THEIR TAX DOLLARS to murder innocent women, men and children all over the Middle East, western Asia.

A typical reaction from a US citizen might be: “the US military is being used to fight terrorism – and that’s a good thing”.  They will get very defensive and start to get agitated – so press them a bit harder and you will finally get: “I don’t care about what’s going on in the rest of the world!  I care about what’s going on here!”

The one thing that American citizens hate more than anything is people who remind them and inform them of the crimes being committed by “their” government all over the world.  They resent being told by us about these things and they hate us for bringing this information to their attention because it strips away their ability to continue to pretend that they don’t know what’s going on.  They don’t want to read about US military atrocities in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Iraq or anywhere else because once they do then they are forced to openly admit that they aren’t going to do anything about it – because they just don’t care.  And they hate that!  US citizens want to be seen as being nice people who love everyone and who want to like others and be liked in return.  So they try to hide their inner viciousness with a veneer of benign ignorance.  They are so selfish that they wouldn’t try to change things even if they believed that they could, because that might make their lives a bit less comfortable than they are – and dull, conformist middle-class comfortability is, after all, the birthright of every US citizen, right?  (Well, every “white” US citizen anyway…).

You still believe that we exaggerate?  Try this: ask your American friends about “Fallujah”.  See if they even know what that word means.

Ask them if they heard about the four boys who were blown to pieces by an Israeli naval vessel in Gaza this year.  Ask them if they know how many women and children were murdered by their “hero” sons and daughters in the US military this year.   Ask them what they know about “Abu Ghraib” and see if they even have a vague recollection of what that name means.  And then challenge them on their callous indifference to the suffering of their fellow human beings at the hands of their own sons and daughters in the US military and see what kind of reaction you get!  Americans hate to be forced to reveal their inner hideousness!

Their historical memories of world-infamous atrocities committed by the US government are no better.  Ask ANY American how many people were killed in the Vietnam War:  their answer (if they can answer the question at all) will most likely be: “53,000”.  Of course, that’s only the number of Americans who were killed in the war.  They don’t know, because they prefer not to know and/or don’t care, how many Vietnamese were butchered by the US during the Vietnam War.  They have been brainwashed into believing that US veterans of the Vietnam War were “heroes” rather than “war criminals”.  “Don’t forget” they will remind you: “the people the US killed in Vietnam were all communists, so killing them was a good thing”!

Ask any US citizen about the US-imposed war against Korea in the 1950s and you will get a blank stare.  That war is unknown to most Americans because they don’t give a shit – except when they fatuously heap praises on veterans of that utterly senseless and savage war because, in their tiny minds, ALL veterans of US wars are “heroes”.  They have no idea that in the Korean War an estimated 3,000,000 Koreans were savagely butchered by the US military.  They don’t know or care that these “heroes” were ordered to, and did shoot down thousands of unarmed Korean civilians in war crime after war crime.   They don’t care enough to look into it – but they “know for sure” that the North Koreans are crazy, that their communist government is a threat to something that they call “world peace” which is under constant attack from crazy people all over the world and which is why they support the mission of the US military – which they idiotically believe to be “the defense of world peace”.

“But we Americans always give generously to charity; and the United States gives more money in foreign aid to poor countries than any other country in the world!” they will exclaim.  They believe these lies but they’ve never bothered to check the facts because they really don’t care.  They are satisfied with the APPEARANCE of their generosity, not with the reality or unreality of it.  They don’t give money to charity because they are good decent human beings: they give it because they are rotten, corrupt and vicious human beings – but they don’t want anyone to KNOW that!  So they pinch a few pennies and attempt to purchase absolution for their callous indifference to human suffering by making a token donation of a ten-thousandth of their income to charity every year – then they order their town or city council to drive the homeless out of their midst and demand that organizations like “Food Not Bombs” be prevented from feeding starving street people.  They don’t care that two of their favorite and largest so-called “charitable organizations” – the United Way and the American Red Cross – have been busted  for wasting tens of millions of dollars of donations on lavish salaries, offices and banquets for their wealthiest donors, or that they simply don’t even try to provide any kind of accounting at all for what they do with the hundreds of millions of dollars they rake in every year.  The indifference of the US citizenry is necessary in order for these vast charitable frauds to be perpetrated decade after decade.

So, what is to be done about this, sisters and brothers?  Especially by you, our working-class sisters and brothers who make up the 95.5% of the world’s population?

First of all: stop thinking that the United States is composed of really nice, compassionate human beings who are simply not aware of the monstrous crimes being perpetrated by the US capitalist class and its military all over the globe: the citizens of the United States don’t know about what’s going on because they don’t want to know and they don’t give a damn.  They are willfully ignorant, hoping that by remaining aloof to the suffering imposed on millions of their fellow human beings by the US Government they can continue to be perceived as being merely unaware of the suffering they are solely responsible for as citizens of the United States who have the unique responsibility for imposing their will on “their” national government.  The citizens of the US believe in their corrupted, amoral hearts that they are benefiting economically from the brutalities inflicted by the US military around the world and so they refuse to do anything to stop the atrocities.

Secondly: do not expect the situation to change any time soon in the United States.  There is not an inkling of any motion among US workers to start fighting even for their own rights, let alone for yours (the uprising in Ferguson, MO is very tiny and has set for itself political goals so feeble as to be utterly useless even in the narrow realm of fighting police brutality in Ferguson itself).  It is possible that things could change, and that’s why we continue to agitate for a socialist workers revolution here in the US: it would be the best thing for the whole planet if the US capitalist class and their state was overthrown by the workers of the US and replaced by a revolutionary socialist government – but it does not look very likely to happen any time soon, if ever.  The citizens of the USA, like their predecessors in Nazi Germany, are literally fat, dumb and grudgingly satisfied enough with the racist capitalist status quo to allow the US Government a free hand to brutalize and colonize the whole planet for the foreseeable future.  Do not expect the stupid assholes of the 2014 US working class to help you drive the US military and US corporations out of your countries in any way, shape or form.

The bottom line:  unless a major sea change takes place in the minds of the workers of the United States – and soon – it is going to be up to YOU – our working-class sisters and brothers OUTSIDE THE US – to band together worldwide and organize yourselves to do the same thing to the United States that the international working class was compelled to do when the Red Army of the no longer extant USSR smashed Nazi Germany in 1945.  There is no other way forward.  If the people of the United States continue to act like “good Germans” they are doomed to suffer the fate of the “good Germans” in 1945.  The world simply can not afford to wait for the relatively pampered, spoiled, over-entertained, over-amused, selfish, pro-capitalist, socialism-hating proto-Nazi US working class to start acting like civilized human beings.  Time is not on our side:  the US government is preparing to unleash a series of massive pre-emptive military assaults on any nation that dares to stand up to the lust of the US capitalist class for global domination of the world’s political and economic future – and the workers of the US are giving them a free pass to do whatever it takes to maintain the current economic status quo inside the US.  Declining gas prices are just going to increase the indifference of the US workers as they find a bit more change in their pockets every time they fill up their gas-guzzling cars at the service stations of America.

The future of the entire planet is at stake.   If 4.5% of the world’s population, due to its callous heartlessness, selfishness and untrammelled greed, must be wiped out so that the planet can survive, then so be it.  It’s a small price to pay!  No one will miss the United States when it’s gone – except brutal dictators and criminal bankers and capitalists who depend on the US military to drown every manifestation of revolutionary socialist working-class leadership in blood wherever and whenever it raises its heroic and noble presence among us.

It is high time that the working class of the United States stood up on its hind legs and started fighting against the encroaching fascism here in the USA and organized itself into revolutionary socialist workers parties dedicated to overthrowing the US capitalist class and its capitalist state and its hideous war machine and building a socialist workers republic!  The slogan “Either socialism or barbarism” has never been more sharply posed as it is today right here in the United States of America!

Why Revolution? Why Socialism?

Why Socialism? Why revolution?

Imagine a world where murderous, racist cops don’t exist.

Imagine a world where wars just don’t happen anymore.

Imagine a world where housing is a RIGHT, not a privilege granted by the rich landlords to the workers, and no one can be evicted from their home because they don’t have the money to pay for rent or a mortgage.

Imagine a world where food is a RIGHT and where no one can be denied access to food regardless of their ability to pay; just go to the supermarket and get what you and your family need.

Imagine a world where if you lose your job, you get paid 100% of your old salary until you get a new one.

Imagine a world where health care is free for everyone.

Imagine a world where a college education is not only free but where you get paid to go to college.

Imagine a world where women’s rights are fundamentally protected by the Constitution, not just an asterisk of an Amendment.

Imagine a world where the rights of black workers are not just an asterisk/amendment added to a slave-owner’s Constitution but incorporated into its very foundation.

Imagine a world where all the nation-states have been transformed from competitors into co-operative societies.

Imagine a world where poverty no longer exists.

Imagine a world unified into an organic whole, where cooperation instead of competition is the rule of the day – every day.

If you can imagine all this, then you are imagining a socialist world. A world without the greed factor; where profitability is no longer the sine qua non of human existence. A world dedicated to the eradication of inequality; a true meritocracy where the vast talents of the human race are finally given the opportunity to reach their full potential, no matter if you were born in Bangladesh or Berlin.

This is the future we fight for: a socialist future where the working class rules and poverty, homelessness, starvation, racism and war have become hideous exhibits in the history museums of the monstrous capitalist era.

The capitalist world is not “the best of all possible worlds”: we can and must do better if we want to live in a world that is worthy of our children and grandchildren.

Capitalism promises us a future of wars, endless wars, over food, water, land and even air.

We can build any kind of socialism we want. What kind of socialism do you want? If you, the workers of the world are willing to join forces as the sisters and brothers that you truly are, and if you are ready

to fight for a socialist future of global prosperity rather than a capitalist future of poverty, starvation and endless wars, you will surely reach that goal, because workers make up the vast majority of the world’s population and so you should call the shots – right?

Why revolution? Because it will take a revolution to overthrow the current selfish, greed-based capitalist system and replace it with an egalitarian federation of socialist workers republics.

Think about it. And then join us!

Copwatch Activist in Washington State Reveals Old, Vast US Government Spy Operation: “Hemisphere”

Happy Labor Day, US debt slaves!

When reading the bourgeois/capitlaist press, one thing one must always be on the guard for is the many ways in which the capitalist-owned news media seeks to pretend to “cover” crucial news stories by publishing them on days when no one will be reading the newspaper: Christmas Eve, New Years Day and, yes, Labor Day are among the days on which it behooves those members of our working class who wish to remain informed of the criminal operations of the capitalist class to redouble our determination to read the bosses’ press.

Today, Debt Slaves’ Day in the USA is one such day.  The capitalists who publish the newspapers in the USA know damned well that on Labor Day, the likelihood that anyone will read the paper published on a Monday holiday – the last weekend of summer in the Northern Hemisphere – is vastly reduced due not only to the fact that the press run of a paper on a day like this is probably HALF what it would be on a normal Monday, but also due to the fact that 99% of the working class is so busy hauling the family to and from a vacation spot that they will be most unlikely to find the time to read the newspaper or wath the TV news.

With this knowledge firmly in their criminal minds, it is on just such dys as this that the owners of the capitalist press – the same people who own the politicians who “run” the US government on behalf of the 1% decide to “reveal” their most repulsive secrets to a world hell-bent on not paying attention to any of their shit.  And so perhaps one or even two or three “news cycles” will pass before the workers will go back to reading the newspapers and watching TV again.

So it came to pass that it was on today, the sacred day of the Debt/Wage Slaves of America, that the New York Times saw fit to publish the following nes item on its front page while no one was looking:

“DRUG AGENTS USE VAST PHONE TROVE ECLIPSING N.S.A.’s – DECADES OF CALL DATA – Database Covers Every Call Passing Through AT&T Switches” by Scott Shane and Colin Moynihan

Well that sure woke us up today!  We are going to go participate in the festivities of our glorious Debt/Wage Slaves’ Day so we will let you read that story for yourselves.  We’ll add, for those of you who wish to know the facts behind the story and who want to dig deeper,

HendricksHemispheredatabase

the actual 27-page FOIA release that working class hero Drew Hendricks –   Copwatch activist from Washington state in the US of A – dug up for our edification.  Mark that: it wasn’t the New York Times who dug this up; it wasn’t WikiLeaks; it wasn’t an NSA insider or a member of the Communications Workers of America union who WORK inside AT&T’s switching centers and who have known about this shit for DECADES who dug this up – it was a curious peace activist who dug this nugget of shit out of the ever-festering Mt. Everest-like dung-hill of U.S. capitalism.

Happy Debt-Slavery Day, U.S. Wage Slaves!

Chicago City Council Passes Phony Pot “Recriminalization” Law in Chicago

In a bid to prop up the Democratic Party’s non-existent support among youth, today the Chicago City Council voted 44-3 to pass their phony bill that pretends to decriminalize marijuana, but which actually is just another scam to rob the citizens of Chicago.

Wacko, right-wing nutjob alderman Edward Burke, who voted in favor of the legislation stated: “This is re-criminalization, a more intelligent and effective way of addressing a problem.”

The “problem”, as arch-reactionary Napoleonic Mayor Rahm Emanuel sees it, is that under the old system, in spite of the Chicago Police making over 18,000 arrests (in 2011) and “wasting” 45,000 cop-hours a year processing people who were being arrested for simple possession of this relatively harmless drug, those busted were able to beat their cases 80% of the time! These pigs in the Chicago City Council just want to steal millions of dollars from impoverished youth through these pot fines, like they stole billions from the entire city with their red-light cameras and by privatizing the parking meters.  The Chicago Democrats on the City Council see the workers as nothing but sheep that need to be sheared!

The Democrats are attempting to spin this crappy, reactionary, pro-Drug War legislation as some kind of victory for civil rights.  In fact, the legislation does nothing but give the cops the “option” of giving out tickets instead of arresting people.  And these tickets will not be cheap: the fine for a first offense is $250; a second offense will be $500; and they can then try to force youth to sign up for pointless (but very profitable for the friends of the City Council who run them) “drug rehabilitation” classes.  Please explain to us, dearest Democrats: in a city where the unemployment rate for youth is over 75%, how in the world are these young workers – or their already financially strapped families –  supposed to pay for the tickets they’ll be receiving for the “crime” of smoking or possessing pot?  And if they don’t pay?  Won’t they be thrown in jail anyway?

The most corrupt City Council in North America pretends that this lousy legislation will correct what has historically been a racist application of the drug laws; last year, of the 18,298 total arrests for possession of less than 10 grams of weed (10 nice sized joints), more than 16,000 were of African-Americans.  The City Council, in the original draft language of the ordinance, cited the following statistics: “[E]ach year the Chicago Police Department arrests approximately 23,000 individuals for low level possession of marijuana… a disproportionate number of these arrests are of minorities including 78% African-American, 17% Hispanic and 5% Caucasian”!  Under this new system, obviously, it will still be black workers taking the biggest hit because it will be the same old racist Chicago cops enforcing the drug laws.

Well it comes as no surprise to us that, like everything else the racist, brutal Chicago Police Department does, the burden of their “drug law enforcement efforts” falls heaviest on black and Hispanic workers and youth.  That is not news to anyone living in Emanuel’s ghettoized “city of neighborhoods”.  Hardly a week goes by that the Chicago cops don’t shoot a black or Hispanic youth in the back, claiming he or she pulled a gun on them.  And hardly a week goes by that another disgusting scandal of police brutality doesn’t emerge from the sewer that is the Chicago Police Department.  Just yesterday, the Chicago Sun-Times featured a front-page tale of Chicago cop savagery in which a drunken off-duty Englewood district cop, Chris Gofron, brutally attacked a young couple, sending both of them to the hospital with severe injuries.  The phony-ass “Independent Police Review Board” and the Chicago Police Department spent two years dragging their feet on the case, refusing to identify the psychopathic cop who committed this brutality.  Obscenely, Gofron still carries a gun in Englewood doing god knows what to the people of that embattled south side black neighborhood, while the “Independent Review Board” twiddles it’s thumbs, pretending to investigate the case.  [Source: “Beat Cop”, Chicago Sun-Times, 26 June, 2012]

Quoth Emanuel: “[This] ordinance… allows us to observe the law, while reducing the processing time for minor possession of marijuana – ultimately freeing up police officers for the street.”  Yes, and that’s the true purpose of this war-on-drugs ordinance: to put even more psycho cops like Chris Gofron on the street to terrorize black and Hispanic youth and the general population instead of “wasting their time” on minor drug possession cases.

The Independent Workers party says: Just as we must Dump the Democrats, that reactionary party of war and union-busting, we need to dump their phony “War on Drugs” as well.  It is past time to “re-legalize” all drugs, including cocaine and heroin – make them all legal again, just like they were back in the “good old days” before prohibition.  Drug addiction is a medical and psychological issue, not a criminal issue.  The responsible use of recreational drugs by adults is not and should not be something the government intrudes itself upon.  What the working class does in their own homes on their own time is not the government’s business!

The truth is that the primary reason that drugs are made illegal is that the US government, the military, weapons manufacturers, the bankers and the law enforcement “community” are making billions of dollars off the drug trade.  Over the last couple of years it was revealed that some of the US’ largest banks – including Wachovia, Bank of America and Wells Fargo – made HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS of dollars laundering drug money for the big drug cartels, through currency exchanges and other methods.  And even though the US Justice Department got the banks to admit they’d done it – NO ONE WENT TO JAIL!  The banksters simply paid fines and walked away from the case!  Wachovia alone, from 2004 to 2007 handled $378.4 BILLION dollars transferred from Mexico via currency exchanges affiliated with that institution.  Instead of being sent to jail for admitting that they “failed to effectively monitor for potential money laundering activity more than $420 billion in financial transactions”, the criminals running Wachovia bank were able to enter into what the US Attorney General’s office for the Southern District of Florida called a “deferred prosecution”: “In light of Wachovia’s willingness to acknowledge responsibility for its actions and omissions, its cooperation and remedial actions to date, and its promised continued cooperation and remedial actions in the future, the government has agreed to defer prosecution of the criminal charge in the information for 12 months. If Wachovia fully complies with its obligations under the Agreement, the U.S. agrees to dismiss the criminal information at the end of the 12 months.”

Can you believe that!  If a local kid gets caught selling 10 grams of crack cocaine, he goes to jail.  If one of the biggest banks in the US gets caught laundering as much as $420 BILLION in Mexican drug money… they get off if they can somehow manage to keep their fingers out of the drug trade for 12 whole months!  Can you see now who really runs this country?  Read these articles if you think we’re making this up:

[Sources: The Guardian (London): ““How a big US bank laundered billions from Mexico’s murderous drug gangs” by Ed Vulliamy, 2 April 2011;  Bloomberg News: “Banks Financing Mexico Gangs Admitted In Wells Fargo Deal”  by Michael Smith, 28 June 2010; US Attorney’s Office, Southern District of Florida Press Release: “Wachovia Enters Into Deferred Prosecution Agreement” 17 March 2010]

Then last year we learned that, between 2006 and 2011 the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms allowed THOUSANDS of guns to be shipped from the US to drug lords in Mexico – while the ATF watched.  This is what is now known as the “Fast and Furious” scandal, which Democrat Barack Obama’s Administration has been trying to cover up, and whose Attorney General, Eric Holder, has just been found to be in contempt of Congress for impeding Congressional investigations into this unbelievably massive corruption at ATF.  Think we’re lying?  Read the newspaper articles at the end of the Wikipedia essay on what they call the “ATF gunwalking scandal”!  There are 87 of them and counting, each one more stunning than the previous one.

[Sources: Wikipedia: “ATF Gunwalking Scandal” ]

In Afghanistan, before the US invaded, the Taliban had almost completely wiped out the cultivation of opium poppies.  As soon as the US invaded, Afghanistan once again became one of the world’s biggest suppliers to the heroin trade – and the brother of the US’ puppet leader in Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, was alleged to be the biggest heroin dealer in that brutalized nation!

Need more proof that the big US and international banks are deeply involved in the drug trade?  Check this out: in 2009, Antonio Maria Costa, the head of the UN’s “Office on Drugs and Crime” told the Guardian newspaper of London that “[d]rugs money worth billions of dollars kept the financial system afloat at the height of the global crisis” in 2008!

“Costa, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, said he has seen evidence that the proceeds of organised crime were ‘the only liquid investment capital’ available to some banks on the brink of collapse last year. He said that a majority of the $352bn (£216bn) of drugs profits was absorbed into the economic system as a result”!

” ‘In many instances, the money from drugs was the only liquid investment capital. In the second half of 2008, liquidity was the banking system’s main problem and hence liquid capital became an important factor,’ he said.”

[Source: The Guardian (London): “Drug money saved banks in global crisis, claims UN advisor” by Rajeev Syal, 12 December, 2009]

The War on Drugs is a naked attempt to control the US population by making pleasure illegal.  Like the reactionary laws against prostitution, making drugs illegal gives the government the “goods” on just about every citizen in the US.  If you’re not into drugs, you must be into kinky sex, right?  Make those two things illegal, and you can bust anyone, any time.

It’s time to STOP THE WAR ON DRUGS!  RE-LEGALIZE ALL “ILLEGAL” DRUGS, like they were before 1930s drug prohibition!
