|Proclamation The "Drug" War is Far Worse
Than Just 90 Years of Lies, Propaganda, and Absurdity!
It has mass produced crime, criminals, violence and ruination ever since politicians and "special" interests outlawed our God-given rights to botanical plants and their extracts some 90 years ago. Look it up: There were very few "drug" problems before 1904, the year they took cocaine out of Coca-Cola. Opium, coca, cannabis and their delightful extracts were all legal. Now all we can get for legal relief is alcohol, tobacco, and the worst man-made drugs. As further insult, WE pay a fortune to doctors and pharmaceutical companies for Prozac, Valium, Librium, Darvon, Vivarin, and other crappy synthetic pills. Or we can go illegal, trying to enjoy and use Nature's cornucopia of herbs and spices, immediately becoming criminals and subject to jail, loss of rights, liberty and property in our attempts to find unadulterated "drugs" on the mean streets of a black market, at the same time trying to avoid being burnt, robbed, or busted; and hoping we'll have a dollar left for a lousy beer. And all the while we unwittingly propagate and enrich fat lawyers, a misdirected and corrupted police force, an overburdened judicial system, a burgeoning prison population, countless government "drug" agencies, and countless rehab "counselors" and "treatment" centers. And consider the half a TRILLION dollars (world-wide) that this tax-sucking whore of a futile war demands each year!1 Oh, not to mention the millions of "drug" abusers now stealing, killing, and feuding over "drugs" that wouldn't have motivated the most dedicated thug to even yawn in public back in 1904. Again, for the ignorant who refuse to appreciate history -- botanical "drugs" were legal, useful, and respectable back then! And try getting a job after you've been busted for "heinous drug crimes" and sent to a College of Higher Criminality (i.e. prison). Might as well be an outlaw!
Folks, there's no comparison between the mellow times when "drugs" were legal (yes! Pre-1900's) and the insanity thereafter. The cowardly, ratings-ravenous media NEVER mentions this amazing comparison. They blindly and rabidly witch-hunt "drugs" and "crime," while the "drug" war, the population explosion (the media still glorifies human breeding!), and the desecration of the planet are raging on. And yet, these simpleton fascist "Drug" Warriors want to blame it all on "drugs!" Has anyone thought about the civil liberties we've lost for this Un-Holy "Drug" War? The Nazis would be green with envy over the propaganda tactics alone! Think about it the next time you're pissing in a cup.
Another Point: Almost all psychoactive "drug" plants are currently illegal world-wide, and most medicinal plants! Even the omniversatile hemp plant is outlawed and demonized. Drug warring morons would have these magnificent plants and herbs become extinct -- and anyone interested in them dead, ruined and/or in jail (for their "own good" or "because of drugs"!). Then they'd pop a Prozac, light a cigar, gulp down a Bud Lite, piss in a cup, wipe their asses with our Constitution, and say, "See? -- We finally won our "Holy Drug War! Our children are saved!" (while they die huffing butane!).
WHO IS TO BLAME?: Let's start with the news media. These worn-out word hacks have been whipping up frenzied "anti-drug" hysteria since the early 1900's. William Randolph Hearst's yellow journalism squawked about "cocaine-crazed Negroes raping white women"! and "marijuana-smoking machete-wielding Mexicans". Because of the subsequent anti-drug and "sin laws" passed, we can thank these pious fabricators for giving birth to the infamous Tong organization, and today's bloody gang warfare. Has everyone forgotten how the Chicago boot-legging war and its drive-by shootings suddenly disappeared after the repeal of Prohibition? They don't teach you the history of the "drug" war in DARE propaganda classes nor on television! Nor do they mention the racist character of this absolutely hypocritical, senseless, and needless "war."
We challenge everyone to try this fun little test: The next time you hear, see, speak, or think of "drug"-related crime or violence, try SUBSTITUTING "drug-LAW" related crime, instead of the usual sound-bite "drug"-related crime. Then think about it for a minute. You'll be amazed how much more correct it is. Now you know why we call 'em "media morons."
|Drug War Suggestion
Sam Aurelius Milam III
Here's an idea. Buy about a ton of marijuana seeds, rent a light plane, and fly all over town sowing seed. Get the river banks, people's back yards, the courthouse lawn, churches, everywhere.
When the seeds begin to germinate, people are sure to notice. The cops will go crazy trying to guard it all to keep people from harvesting it. Maybe they'll be so busy trying to guard and destroy the crop that they won't have time to (oh, for example) murder frightened young black women stranded in cars at night, calling for help, who just happen to be armed.
Sad But True
Letters to the Editor
To condemn interest, as the early Christians did, is fine. People should loan without thought of gain, for pure love, because people have a need. Sure. Usury became a sin for Christians. Jews became the bankers of the Christian world. Socialists & fascists say: if there must be usury, let the government do it. That way the people may benefit from the profits of course the people must demand that their government actually serve them this goes for all governments capitalist, socialist, or fascist. Without banks & loans & interest, too many people starve to death. Because they can't rely on Christian charity. That's the reality that causes practical philosophers to advocate government banks over private banks or no banks.
I agree with what you say about the UN & the US vis a vis human rights. World opinion must be mobilized against what the US & UN are doing to Iraq, on the one hand, & against what the Serbs, Israelis, & Tutsi are doing against people in the Balkans, the Arab world, & central Africa, on the other. It's a question of justice, & the ability to distinguish between real human rights & current shams. Personal ethics are fine, but insufficient; political movement is necessary as well.
Elliot; N. Merrick, New York
1. Interest doesn't create profits. It creates inflation. It doesn't prevent starvation, either.
2. Capitalism, socialism, and fascism are not forms of government. They are forms economies. Democracy, oligarchy, and dictatorship are forms of government. However, these forms are merely different ways of organizing the structure of the government and have little to do with its behavior. In terms of behavior, there are only two kinds of government: despotism and social contract. Regardless of its form, a government can be a despotism or a social contract government, depending upon its behavior. The U.S. government, for example, is an oligarchy of democratically elected oligarchs (form) and a despotism (behavior).
I hope this [contribution] helps a little. I do look forward to receiving "the Frontiersman." It's always thought provoking!
Alan; San Jose, California
Keep up the good work.
I would be happy to get the Frontiersman on line if you set up a subscription service.
Bob; Murphys, California
The Frontiersman is posted on my website. Is the "subscription service" that you suggest a different kind of online delivery method of which I'm not aware? If so, will you please explain it?
Got your note & I want to help. As you know, the world is in trouble financially I mean, and then if this Millennium Bug closes banks, it will really come to an end. So I am trying to make all my donations while it is still open. If it is still in operation say July 4, remind me, & I'll try to help again....
Stock up on what you can. If the computers quit working, so do planes & trains. And no bank on Jan. 1, 2000! Ugh!
Happy New Year!

Some Interesting Quotations
Provided by Sir John the Generous
I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
James MadisonA really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and school teachers.
No problem. As long as we have rivers, we'll have banks.

|Time is Getting Short
I had hoped that we'd be able to survive using my savings until the end of June. It now appears that the deadline might be the end of March. If we don't secure a source of cash by that time, then we won't have a way to survive. We'll probably have to abandon or sell most of what we own. I'll be forced to terminate the Frontiersman and The Pharos Connection.
We're still seeking work, and if we find enough to secure our survival, then I'll discontinue this request for help. I've received a few contributions, but not enough to cover our expenses. I haven't received any pledges at all. If you feel that you can make a contribution or a pledge, I'd appreciate it. I'd prefer that you send cash, but if you'd rather send a check then please make it payable to John Webster. If you have a different suggestion, I'll be happy to hear it.
