Be careful of those selling hate because they are really selling fear which they can then use to control and manipulate you. I’m currently buying neither as the war machine smells blood and is hungry for even more war profiteering. This MIC needs the fuel that will no longer be supplied as the blood of veterans is not to be spilt for oil any longer. The MIC can no longer insulate itself from its own child sacrifice through an economic draft that pulls in children from lower socio-economic status and higher childhood trauma levels in to the military.
Rig the economy and then let the invisible hand of the market force the least amongst us to do your dirty work. Many veterans come back from war with so much trauma that the solution provided is pharmaceutical drugs that would zombify the person for the rest of their lives. This system is not designed to cure you but at least give you some sort of flat line state where you won’t have to feel the pain connected to the trauma. It’s sort of a way to bury you before you are dead or put you to sleep but still alive so that you never really wake up.
This is not the system that nature designed. We are trying to short circuit or completely delay the body’s own natural response to trauma. Nature says have courage, I will help you and you must go through and process your trauma. It’s also a way to cover up the truth. What better way to destroy the evidence of the horrors of war or the political failures of global geopolitics than to overmedicate the “crazy” people out of the public discourse because as a society we are uncomfortable talking about it. Mentally lock up all those veterans with their demons that no one else in our society wants to or knows how to deal with. Blame them for their trying to kill themselves while taking governmentally prescribed drugs when the same drugs have side effects of suicide and suicidal thoughts. Destruction of government property. The ultimate sin in the cult of MIC.
Still we have a childhood trauma problem masquerading as a PTSD problem. Childhood trauma is the biggest risk factor for developing PTSD in war. So what a better way to sweep our cultures’ failings under the carpet than by forced drugging. We don’t care about your cognitive liberty. You know that because we’ve been doing that since you were a kid in school with Ritalin and Adderall. How traumatic is it to be taught in school that drugs are bad and then being forced to take drugs because you are acting outside of expected boundaries which apparently is what drugs end up doing to you any way or at least that seems to be what everyone against them is afraid of.
We veterans reject the pharmaceutical poison coming out of your war machine. Do people know that the majority of pharmaceutical drugs are made from petrochemicals? This is a closed loop system of the politicians making war to control energy reserves. Then the soldiers come back with trauma and they are put on frankenpharma petrochemicals. These military “head” casualties are being stripped of their most basic freedom-their own cognitive liberty. The domain of one’s own biochemistry and the primacy of their own experience. What is more mine than that? Those veterans who were willing to sacrifice their lives for the ideals of freedom are being denied the right to have dominion and control over their own minds and their own biology.
We veterans gave an oath to our country’s Constitution that has never been revoked. We gave that oath and were willing to sacrifice our lives to die in war or live as casualties of war, but we sanctified the right, the natural right, to take these plants to heal ourselves. We redeemed and reclaimed that right for all of humanity. The history of war shows that soldiers always brought back the plants to help heal from war in the places that they fought. With the whole world endlessly engaged in wars between humans and other humans and between humans and the planet, the plants are growing out of their natural habitats to heal the planet of the war machine once and for all. They are also calling us to them because we need their help.
The remainstreaming of the archaic technology of natural shamanistic healing with sacred plants is not just a natural solution to the disease of the unnatural war machine virus. It is both the cure and replacement all in one. Plant based biofuels, medicine, high capacity/fast charge rate batteries, the chemical factories for creating all the building blocks in 3-D printing ecosystem, so many of our new technologies will need a sustainable scaffolding to support them. Nature provides that. Fossil fuels are basically dead plankton made in to oil. We need to come in to a living relationship with these plants that sustains both parties in the relationship.
As we prepare for a super technological future and the entire planet opens up to a globalized consciousness, our elders, the plants come to help us both save planet and prepare for operating in a future that will be all about safely and correctly navigating alternate states of consciousness delivered through high end technologies. If we really believe we will leave the planet some day we certainly have to explore our own internal universe of consciousness if we are going to go out and explore the Other.
So folks the Drug War is ending and even though we are already starting to experience the green dividend the fighting is far from over. To the VA doctors we say we don’t want your shitty drugs. If the VHA can’t provide unique or custom therapies to veterans what’s the point of having a separate agency at all? We veterans are taking matters in to our own hands and will heal ourselves because we want to wake up and you want us to stay asleep. As they say in the Mexican proverb, “They tried to bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds.”
