Thanks Mondo bro, for bringing this article here. Most engrossing.
“Why if they were worthwhile six months ago, why aren’t they worthwhile now?” he asked repeatedly. “Why didn’t you just let them continue?… We keep going around and around… If I could get a flat answer about that I would be happy. Is there a misunderstanding about my question?”
“I think we have given too much emphasis and so much attention to the fact that it can be dangerous and that it can hurt an individual who uses it… that perhaps to some extent we have lost sight of the fact that it can be very, very helpful in our society if used properly.”
Kennedy was also concerned with “FDA interference with the scientific investigation of so promising a drug as LSD,” but his sensible and objective pleas fell on the deaf ears of the political and medical establishment.
And we all know that the real story here isn’t that LSD was banned because of any threats of large-scale insanity and deaths—alcohol and tobacco have caused infinitely more deaths than LSD—but because the conservative political order saw a substance that they believed was fueling the counter-culture and they did what was in their power to bring it to an end. This philosophy reached its apotheosis with Richard Nixon’s “War on Drugs,” which has no doubt become, like alcohol prohibition, one of the government’s most embarrassingly ineffective measures against substance abuse.
Yes, as you say very topical, very topical indeed.

The 'shady, secretive organisation' that is Codex Alimentarius
"More and more people are becoming concerned about the shady, secretive organization that is Codex Alimentarius - the thinly-veiled propaganda arm of the international pharmaceutical industry that does everything it can to promote industry objectives whilst limiting individual options to maintain health (which would diminish mermbers profits).
Codex alimentarius is one of the major bodies behind the effort to limit access to nutritional products and information. Its motivation is not rocket science and neither is the source of its funding - money that somehow expected to return a profit to its members . . . Most of the information available regarding codex alimentarius refers to its role in the USA, but it is not a US-specific body. Far from it, Codex has wiggled its dirty little tentacles into just about every national or international body concerned with public health. Posing as a benefactor, it then uses its significant financial and political clout to do its masters bidding.
As you can read in the excellent article below, there is much to be concerned about when considering codex alimentarius - ignore it at your peril. "
Borax is one of the latest to be attacked and I have always used Borax, which is a great all purpose cleaner. These 'decicers' of OUR health cares can take a bloody big run and jump when they allow DEATHLY CRAP in our food and drinks and personal care products and household yet dare to try take away that what is natural and has done us no harm in the past, (true, common sense is needed with some products, but hey, most of us have that)...
Never really gone too deep about these brothers. I grew up liking them, maybe thanks in part to 'Has anybody here seen my friend, Bobby'. Stuff begins somewhere.
Now, I wonder like many seem to do, were these guys naive or bloody courageous?
Both? Could they have made active their beliefs in more subtle ways? Did their little time in our lives make in fact quite a powerful impact? I can look back with my Now eyes and feel a glimpse of the LIGHT all those years back?? (Cloudy).
Surely Bobby knew that he was a cert for assassination after what happened to John?
Maybe one day, when I get time, I will try and learn a little more.
Mondo, you are a SHINING STAR!
Lincoln is included here. I hear bits and pieces that he was not as he seemed. (Lincoln, Hero or Tyrant?) Again, too little info, but if we keep asking, we keep learning...
"A few years after Cromwell’s death in 1658, a British mob dug up his remains, removed the head, and hung the rest of this race-traitor by the heels. In the not too distant future, Lincoln’s remains (along with Franklin D. Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Harry Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Theodore Roosevelt; all Jews, along with many others) will no doubt get the same treatment, when an educated American people realize the extent of his crimes against this nation. But first his phony icon must be shattered. The lies of the historical myth makers must be dispelled and replaced with historical truth."
