  •  The war on drugs is a war on consciousness (0+ / 0-)

    It's about our relationship to the multiple states of consciousness our nervous system affords us. Controlling access to the variety is a way of maintaining control by those in authority, because when the mind is opened their control games lose interest. People no longer wish to participate in the fear-mongering on which our cultural mythos is constructed- fear of god, fear of church, fear of government, etc.

    The illegal drugs are most often the ones that afford access to, glimpses of a bigger picture. They don't leave us there permanently, that takes work, but used consciously with the proper set and setting (thanks Dr. Leary) these agents open us to possibilities beyond fear. And that's what the control freaks fear- us discovering our freedom.
