Definition of [Picrotoxin Procaine] Propranolol (from Wikipedia)
Propranolol (INN) is a sympatholytic non-selective beta blocker. Sympatholytics are used to treat hypertension, anxiety and panic. It was the first
successful beta blocker developed. Propranolol is available in generic form as propranolol hydrochloride, as well as an AstraZeneca and Wyeth product
under the brand names Inderal, Inderal LA, Avlocardyl, Deralin, Dociton, Inderalici, InnoPran XL, Sumial, Anaprilinum, Bedranol SR (Sandoz).
Propranolol is one of the banned substances in the Olympics.
So, give me a minute to catch you up on this thought process; I was cleaning up in the kitchen and my fiance had 'Chelsea Lately' on TV in the living
room. I wasn't really listening until they mentioned racism; that other current affair regarding that 'racist shooting' came to mind so I paid
attention real quick and realized they were talking about Propranolol. What they were saying was that it could potentially "cure racism."
I did a quick search and came up with the below yahoo link; sure enough, Propranolol seems to be being pushed as a possible, new, "anti-racism" drug.
Since "racism" is purely a matter of opinion and preference that's perpetuated by developmental environments and culture, I thought this was
ridiculous. To say it's a "cure for racism" is to say "it's a cure for opinion and preference that's perpetuated by developmental environment and
Deciding I should share this new-to-me information with you all here at ATS, I logged on and did a quick search. What I found has somewhat stopped my
train of thought and made me consider the what-if possibility that this new drug, Propranolol is being pushed for another reason? What reason?
Consider the following threads:
Propranolol May Cure Autism:
Propranolol Can Suppress Traumatic Memories:
Beta-Blockers (Propranolol) May Treat PTSD:
Now think about the fact that the drug, Picrotoxin Procaine Propranolol was developed in the 1960's right around the time '___' was receiving a great
deal of political heat, leading to '___''s prohibition. The CIA was working with '___' for mind-control techniques, most notably within the MK-Ultra
Project. The guy who first synthesized Propranolol received the Nobel Peace Prize for his discovery.
Now, my mind's reeling with the notion that this drug, could be coaxed into public awareness and approval through the consistent propagation of racism
through the media. America's had it's first black president and racism is still "rampant" and "uncontrollable." This mindset could lead people to
believe the drug is okay and that once it's approved for it's specific use, and not diluted or used within other pre-approved drugs, it could
cause a multitude of problems within society.
The idea of altering ones memories is not a new idea, as disclosed in this Wall Street Journal Article:
Now; the fact that it's being toted as a way to create the "Soldier of the Future" by allowing them to stay psychologically distant from the
battlefield, scares the ever loving crap out of me. I'm going to go out on a limb and speculate that THIS may be the drug that allows American
soldiers to target American citizens during a time of Marshal Law [inevitably invoked to protect us of course, from ourselves] without hesitation,
fear, or regret.
You might be thinking that this idea is a crock of crap and I'm sure many will agree with you. However, I've been watching the "War on Terror" since
it's inception on 9/11 and I still cannot justify the war today, just like I couldn't justify it on 9/12. As far as I can see, this is not about
oil, as most presume...America has low gas prices and we buy most of our oil from Canada and Mexico. It's not about WMD's...because we haven't found
any. It's not about Helen of Troy (a woman), and it's not about land ownership or occupations. It's also not about "American Freedom" because as of
today, I (as an American) have less rights than I did 11 years ago. It's not about money...because all of our debt is backless and the Chinese own
most of what we think is ours.
I think this war is being perpetuated so as to insure that our soldiers, upon their return home, have missed so much time in the real world, that the
only option they'll have that offers retirement and decent compensation, and aligns with their skill sets is as a "Peace Officer" in the USA.
"Securing and suppressing domestic terrorists" will be a walk in the park when their nerves are calmed and their psychological connections and
emotional reactions to what they're ordered to do are inhibited by Propranolol.
This notion has been in my head for quite some time now (a matter of months) but I kept telling myself, there's no way that our soldiers would be able
to do such a thing [as formerly discussed in other threads and in private conversations.] Now that I know there is a drug that might help them do so,
makes me nervous to say the least.
What are your thoughts on Propranolol?
Why do you think it's being described to treat so many different 'afflictions'?
Why do you think it's received so much funding to test it again and again on different 'problems'?
Now consider the following video...
Do you now realize that racism is simply opinion and preference that's perpetuated by developmental environment and culture? If racism is reduced by
Propranolol, then your opinions based on emotion (which they ALL are) will be reduced as well. This soldier, speaking out about what he's been ordered
and forced to do during the "War on Terror" would no longer be speaking out...his terrible memories would be suppressed and replaced with neutral or
even good memories.
So what's a crock of crap now?
