We must act!
    #1690359 - 07/06/03 04:40 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

We can no longer sit by while the United States government imprisons and kills innocent people in the name of the drug war, Writing our representatives and walking around with signs is not enough, it is not making any changes! we must stop them, and more drastic measures are needed. Violence is not the answer but more drastic measures then what we have been doing, or nothing will get done. Civil Disobedience is what we need, to the most extreme measure.

thats just what they want is for people to openly smoke pot in public. then they can imprison the culture they are so afraid of and then there is nobody to vote against there fascist agendas. if its necessary, they will build the prisons they will hire more police officers. lets not kid ourselves, there needs to be a messy, bloody and violent revolution.

I think 90% of the drug community isn't registered to vote.

If we would just vote, we'd probably have ended this war by now.

on the topic of civil disobedience, your sig, "One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws" is in my opinion one of the most frequently misused and taken-out-of-context quotes there ever was... well, it's either that people are misusing it, or it's a stupid thing to say...

do we have a moral responsibility to smoke pot?

if i were a texan up until around a week ago, would i have a moral obligation to go out and pick up a guy for some gay butt sex?

i think that quote (at least for me) only means something in the context of when there is a law that requires me to do something which the government wants me to, not to not do something that the government doesn't want me to...

:rolleyes:

No, but you have the moral responsibility to support those who do...

Otherwise, that's pretty funny

BABYHITLER: "I think 90% of the drug community isn't registered to vote.

I am not american but I CANT buy that , then again maybe people down there are more apathetic than I thought , but then again what are your choices??? a Democract that wont legalize or a republican that is not only not going to but want things to be tougher , or Ralph Nader , who while having good intentions cant do much against these CORPORATE PARTIES, and lets not kid ourselves about the levels of coruption either.

I think close to 90% of the population doesn't vote. Including me, I'm not a US citizen.

first off, neither of the major parties has yet to run a legalization platform.

secondly, even if everyone who favored legalization voted for a party that did, it still wouldn't be enough.

third, most people have more important issues on their mind than drug legalization when they select a candidate.

drugs are illegal because the vast majority wants it that way. even cannabis legalization isn't supported by the majority.

people are going to have to start changing their minds-on a very wide scale, about drugs, before drug laws start to change... it'll happen though.

"One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws that affect them personally"

Is that so hard to mentally incorporate?

that might make a little more sense...

let's say that i live in nazi contolled poland in the 40's. there's a law that says i've got to turn in my neighbor to the SS for being a jew.

this law is unjust, but doesn't affect me personally, and i've got a moral responsibility to disobey it.

i believe that the government has no right to force you to DO anything. they can only force you NOT to do certain things.

Heh, So they can tell you not to speed, but they can't tell you that you have to appear in court to defend yourself?

yes, and they can also force you to go to jail if you killed someone.

the rules change when you've hurt or endangered another human being. (your rights will be taken away if you take away someone else's).

I dunno Mushmaster.. that's a hard line to draw... Don't you dictate what someone is doing when you say what they can't do.

What if a law says you can't walk outside after dark anymore? They're not telling you what to do, they're just telling you what you can't do, yet this affects a huge portion of your everyday life.

i'm not saying that any time the government says you CAN'T do something that it's wrong. i'm just saying that everytime they tell you that you MUST do something it is wrong.

So by that logic, the government telling you you've got to take care of your children is wrong?

Alright so we got off track, but lets brainstorm here, what are some more effective mesures that we can start taking to stop this war?



I mean lets face it, the War on Drugs is a horrible human rights violation and must be stopped.
