I can point out one very simple reason why there is no way there is any conspiracy here. The drug in question improves a person's performance (hence
why it is banned in the Olympics) and if anything TPTB want to pacify us, not empower us.
As a musician I have used Beta Blockers before to combat stage fright and performance anxiety. It is very, very common among professional musicians,
especially classical musicians where perfection is so overrated. I can say first hand they are extremely helpful. They block the physical symptoms
that are commonly associated with nervousness, such as cold hands, shaky hands/feet, stuttering speech, etc. I have also noticed I am less shy in
social situations or when meeting new people when on them, and just feel generally more empowered socially. It is obvious why the Olympics has banned
them. While they won't make you any stronger or faster, they will provide an advantage in sports that are very technical such as martial arts or
As a general rule of thumb, whatever is good for you or empowering or helpful in any way will be banned by the federal government. Just look at all
the junk science and propaganda behind the smearing of steroids and human growth hormone for example. When used correctly and not abused, they will
phenomenally improve a person's health, increase bone density, muscle density and mass, repair organ tissue, aid in fat loss and overall reverse the
aging process. The only people who suffer from adverse effects of steroids are those who have no idea what they are doing - they use too high of
quantities, don't cycle them correctly, or use the wrong gear altogether. If the reason behind their illegality was truly due to their side effects
in this very small percentage of users, then they wouldn't be constantly pushing psychiatric drugs onto the population most of which have much worse
effects than steroids and affect a much larger percentage of users.
They ban the substances that empower people and push the substances which pacify and are harmful to people. So i think if there is going to be any
conspiracy involving beta blockers it will be the other way around. Some politicians will start spewing BS about how "dangerous" they are citing
bogus studies and begin pushing propaganda to get them prohibited under law.
