So how do you discuss the conspiracies involved with America's War on Drugs then?
Simple. Same as every other conspiracy with political aspect. Follow The Money. Guess who wins by making various agricultural alternatives illegal?
Who wins by making cheap, consumer-producible medical alternatives illegal? Who wins by making certain a constant privately-maintained prison system
will always be full of 'offenders'? How about the lucrative business of 'rehabilitation and prevention'?
Now, answering that, who contributes to political campaigns? Who spends and influences advertising dollars?
In parallel to all that, how does the United States gain by there being a worldwide 'virtual economy', untraceable by disclosed oversight? How does
that allow a government to both hide and
manipulate nation enemies?
And, in the constant battleground for public opinion, how does it help to have a 'targeted enemy'? One that is not
simply a person or
organization that can be specifically addressed, but rather is of such a nature that encourages polarized public opinion? And as an added benefit,
how could such an assumed 'battleground' be used to discredit objecting 'fringe' elements of society?
Let's ask all these questions. You can easily find many theories and much evidence, by an intelligent search of these forums. I think the answers,
as they can be variously interpreted, are obvious to most ATS members. Why is this not part of the public discourse? My previous post in this thread
was surrounded by 'warn' alerts. Guess what: this one won't be, and this post won't be censored. ATS is more free than unsophisticated
advocates would have you believe.
