Failing the acid test
    #872443 - 09/09/02 01:49 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Amazing how many people on a shroom board spout the same ideas as George Bush. Talk about failing the acid test.

Makes you wonder what kind of experiences they have on shrooms. Must just be like beer to them "Like cool dude, lets do some shrooms..." Three hours later they say "have we dropped 10,000lb bombs on those little brown people yet?".

Like Bill Hicks said about trying to get his fundamentalist father tripping

"Dad, this is supposed to be when your ego dissolves and you realise that we're all one"

"I JUST WANNA WATCH RUSH LIMBAUGH!!"

"Shit, dads not getting off on these things like i am..."

Psychedelics do not contain ideas. To think that people who eat psychedelics will all share your opinions is not only stupid, it's arrogant.

Psychedelics alter the way you think. Drastically. They can reinforce any ideas you may have. One person might use them, and have their peaceful, anti-war ideas or whatever enhanced, while others will be Charles Manson. Manson's philosophies are based around the use of LSD. So are Leary's.

It's just that many of us here are over 14 years old and have figured out how the world really works. Those of us who have seen the real world have long since dropped those silly liberal ideas that never worked anywhere they've been implemented.
Dropping acid, giving yourself a big hug, and telling everyone that you love them don't pay the rent man.

at least there are no pictures of laden fucking donkeys in this post......

Good answer Phluck. Psychadelics and how they effect the user vary as much as the sizes of allen wrenches. I mean really, have you ever seen those teenie tiny little allen wrenches? What are those for anyway? And those big ass muthers....you know the ones......they look like large sex toys or something.

Anyway . . . .

i'm sick and tired of everyone always saying communism has never worked... has no one ever heard of a little country called yugoslavia? a man named tito? how about china and Mao? communism was ued very effectively by these two leaders in these two coutries. only problem was that tito died and mao got manipulated when he really knew better..

btw, communism has never been implemented.

in the first place, it is socialism which rises from the ashes of the crumbling capital order, necessarily uniting workers all over the world in a common cause against the force dominating their life that is entirely alien to them

any reference to the outcome of the october revolution as "communist" only shows extreme isolation on every front: political, intellectual, cultural, etc.

I can't tell from your post if you were being serious or not. Was that a joke, or do you really hold up China as a fine example of.... Oh fuck it, why bother.

I agree with Phluck on this. Psychadelics are merely an amusement park ride of the mind. They accentuate and distort sensory stimuli while at the same time exaggerating thought processes or ideas that are already present in the user's mind. Their effects are very similar to a kind of short-term schizophrenia, which can be dangerous because schizos tend to have delusions of grandeur combined with various paranoid fantasies. Because the experience is so intense (or can be, depending on dosage), many people walk away from it thinking that they've somehow "seen" the deeper workings of the universe, which in turn renders them incapable of reasonable debate and even of civilized discourse. Many of the heavy psychadelic users I know tend to have very strong opinions and be very dogmatic about them. These forums are more than evidence enough of that.

Huxley and Leary were unfortunately wrong: psychadelics are not the magic cure-all to all of humanity's problems. Used intelligently they can be a significant aid to creativity and a kind of "searchlight" to see the workings of one's own mind more clearly. They also apparently have some medicinal uses. Other than that, though, they do absolutely zero to make one more intelligent, better at human relationships, or better at life in general. Only the hard work of educating oneself, testing oneself in actual human relationships, and creating something worthwhile out of one's life can do those things.

Huxley and Leary were unfortunately wrong: psychadelics are not the magic cure-all to all of humanity's problems.

Well for the few brief years they were widely available in the 60's they brought the western world to the brink of revolution and so terrified the establishment that they made them schedule 1 drugs against the advice of pretty much every medical expert in the country.

I wouldn't be too sure that psychedelics can't offer a lot to the world. As Bill Hicks said "Imagine what would happen if people took shrooms on a regular basis...how are we gonna build nuclear weapons when we realise we're all one? It's gonna fuck up the economy. The economy that's fake anyway. So you can see why the government is trying to stamp these fucking things out"

communism can never work in the real world because on paper, it does not factor in one important factor: Man's desire for power and money surpassing his or her love of the community.
