Drugs ... we love 'em

Thanks to Tony for passing me a link to this story in yesterday's Sun ('We Love It')...

The irony of combating drug addiction in a minority of the population by pumping all of the population full of drugs when they are still babies seems to be lost on the Sun's editorial which commented...

Why not give it a try?

Which reminds me that one characteristic of a really good Unified Conspiracy Theory is how it can account for and suck in virtually everything that's going on in the world, like a Black Hole.

For example, conspiracy theory connoscenti know that not only do Bankers Control the World!!! through lending colossal amounts of non-existent money and supporting the illegal drugs trade, the 'Bankers' also have a hand in the global pharmaceutical industry.

People like this guy, for example, believe that the proliferation of vaccines being jabbed into our babies is part of a deliberate policy to keep the lower orders fucked-up and stupid.

I was chatting about vaccinations recently with a couple of family members with young children. Both of them commented, without prompting, about just how many shots had been jammed into their kids; often without much in the way of explanation of just exactly what was going into their children and what the potential upsides and downsides were. Speaking as concerned parents they were... concerned.

I don't claim any special insight into this subject but it does strike me as being a little odd how we allow our kids to be pumped full of mercury-laden vaccinations and additive-filled food, then respond to behavioural issues in our children not by pumping them full of less drugs and additives but opt to have them pumped full of even more crap instead

Uppers from one hand, downers from the other...

Rat Park

"Alexander's hypothesis was that drug addiction is a myth, and that the apparent addiction to morphine commonly observed in laboratory rats exposed to it is attributable to their living conditions, and not to any addictive property of the drug itself. [1] He told the Canadian Senate in 2001 that experiments in which laboratory rats are kept isolated in cramped metal cages, tethered to self-injection apparatus, show only that "severely distressed animals, like severely distressed people, will relieve their distress pharmacologically if they can." [2]

To test his hypothesis, ..."

"Concern about possible links between the MMR vaccine and a rising incidence of autism" would make sense in my Anti-Autists rule the world theory.

Did you know, that the Rockefeller Foundation supposedly laced vaccines with birth-Control drugs?

@anon - thanks for the Rat Park link. That was new to me. For some reason I was especially tickled by the quote...

"We talked about it all the time, over dinner, on weekends. My kids came up and met the rats, did some data collection. It was of course tremendously exciting to see all the commonly held notions about addiction so challenged by the rats. I've had only one good idea in my life and that was it. But one good idea, who can complain about that?"

@Tony: Yes, yes I did. We are, of course, talking about a Unified Conspiracy Theory here. The Rockefellers are behind everything

As are the


and lower done the scale

The Bushes
The British Royal Family

and many, many more

Of course believing that and publishing meticulously compiled timelines and genealogies on the Internet and elsewhere doesn't change anything.

It never has
