Probably not, but instead of dropping bombs we could think why the system works like this after so many years, I think legalization and regularization
can be the answer but that would only benefit the citizens.
It's plain and simple it's called terrorism.
I seriously doubt any of the people actually killed for posting things on some the net in mexico were the actual people who did it. Most likely just
random people who they could get to, but ya. It's control by terror and it works, fear is a big psychological weapon and can be used by a very small
group to control another group a thousand times its size. And so a gang can control hundreds of thousands of people trough fear and intimidation, and
the first thing on the agenda of any such group is to get the people who they are trying to control to be defenseless. In some places and countries
that comes in the form of gun control.
But its plain and clear cut what is happening. Drugs are big business and big $, and everybody is involved on making a cut on that business, lots in
the us government are making $$$ of it, lots in the Mexican government are making $$$ of it, the banks who launder the money are making $$$ of it,
the cartels and drug czars all over the world are making $$$$$ of it. And the people on the streets selling it are making $ of it, really it is a
pyramid and those who make less in that business would be the lowly drug pushers at least compared to those above them. And the street junkies are
there tools on keeping the business flowing, they are like the peons that you sacrifice to move ahead in the game.
And those peons are your average kids, and the lost sheep, who by whatever circumstance end up in the mix, and the laws and institutions are not
really there to help them, they are more there to keep them in the system, and the system is for profit.
So here is the deal legalizing drugs wont fix the problem totally and get rid of drugs, because people like drugs and buy them, and as long as that
happens then somebody will make and sell them, be they cartels, drug czars or governmental institutions, to corporations, to whatever and whoever
But one thing it would do is spreed the profits around and not give so much power in to the hands of the few cartels and degenerate government
people and groups ie it would decentralize that power. The war on drugs is so that they would better control the game and the profits into a smaller
pool, legalizing it would increase that pool out, and so it would cut into there profits... you dig. That is why you will not see them actually
letting go of that tool, not because they would not make money anymore, but because they wont make as much money.
Really drugs is a gold mine for lots of people so don't expect the government to actually do much about it, because they are just protecting there
interests and were there interests lie, ie... in $$$, in drug money. Like I said the core problem is that drugs sell, and as long as they sell
somebody will be there to sell them and make a profit of it. I mean just look at what happened to the CIA, not that long ago in the they were at
war with the mafia and all those that were making $$ of drugs.
And now that they have won against the mafia, well look what happened...A big part of there operations became the new mafia and are just continuing on
there business, and not only that, but they are way better at it then the mafia ever was.
But anyways if you people want results you not going to get it by putting the foxes in charge of the hen house. So do you know why the system works
the way it does after so many years? It's simple really because it was designed to work like that.
Really if you want people to get of drugs, showing picture of users and abusers is cool and all. But if you really want to scare them, then tell them
the truth of what is up. Because there is nothing as scary as the truth of the matter.
