Notice the political undertones of this use of the RAVE Act. They're not using it to stamp out drugs. They're using it to stamp out dissent.

It is just a dream. Take 5g of mushrooms if you want to wake up. I did that, and afterwards I learned to appreciate this dream a lot more.

I think I know how you feel. Sometimes I wonder how people like RAW and Bill Hicks can/could keep such a good sense of humour in the face of all the depressing shit going on.


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

Ya wanna know what the problem is? No congressman or Senator represents the drug users of this country. We're part of the citizenship, right? Where's our equal representation?!?!?!

alot of us dont vote because if we did then we wouldnt seem counterculture or whatever. apathy seems to be the hip new fad of illegal drug users. alot of us do vote and alot of us that do vote have short memories and get caught up in the charisma of the mainstream politicians. there isnt a large enough coalition of the psychadelic community to really vote in lockstep and make a dent in politics.

Too bad you can't vote by proxy. Then all the stoners could just hand over their vote to the local head shop.

Of course then people would be selling their vote for free car washes.

it's kind of exciting though. I mean, as the government gets more and more repressive, the people are going to get more and more liberal. The revolution is inevitable. The instinct for freedom is too strong.

"It is just a dream."

Man that's our problem.... if everybody's still asleep/dreaming then they can keep doing whatever they want - THIS IS REAL - THEY ARE REALLY MAKING AND ENFORCING RULES LIKE THIS, and its going to get worse and keep affecting more real parts of our real lives if we keep mistaking waking life for just another dream - if its a dream I think lucidity needs to be increased.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Actually, a lot of us dont vote because there is no candidate to vote for. The one's that do want to legalize drugs are usually so far out on other issues its a non starter. The main parties wont even listen to talk about changing things, so a non vote in my opinion is still a vote.

The truth is, nothing of importance has been changed in this country without a million people in the streets raising hell, whether its women's rights, civil rights, workers rights or any other rights. The only rights the government regularly expands without obvious pressure are the governments rights and the rights of business.

As far as being politcally active, there is a price to pay that a lot of people have thus far understandably not been willing to pay, and that is to put yourself in harm's way. Like the labor struggles or the civil rights struggles, there is enough of a rift with this issue (mainly because the government has cosistently lied about drugs to the general public and they won't come clean) that I am afraid people will once again be called upon to sacrifice their very lives for what they believe in.

It is sad that in yet one more instance of what should be obvious freedoms people will need to shed blood and spend years in prison to gain their rights as free, thinking beings.

bullshit. Democracy doesn't represent me. I get to vote for the best of two evils, not that it even matters...the system is flawed.

The candidate with the most appealiing adds gets the majority...the majority doesn't look at facts, and people like me get screwed regardless of who wins, because all polititions are the same.

If your american, i would move up to canada, or somewhere else fast, because your vote isn't going to change shit!
