October 6, 2011 in United States
The Occupy Together Movement continues to grow. This movement is about many things. From my perspective, it is primarily about recognizing the oneness of humanity as each person understands his or her relationship with God and reconnects. This concept of unity is a threat to those in power because they need division to create the situations necessary for them to maintain power.
One of the ways division is created is through the so-called “War on Drugs.” The United States Government claims the purpose of this program is to define and reduce illegal drug trade. Based on the results, either this program is run by the most incompetent people in the United States or the program is really designed to do the exact opposite of the stated goal.
Statistics show that illegal drug use continues to grow. This happens in spite of a record number of arrests for drug-related crimes. If law enforcement is a detriment to crime, it certainly doesn’t seem to be working in this case. In fact, if we look closer, nothing about the war on drugs makes sense.
After several years of looking at this, I’m beginning to wonder if I’m looking at it from the wrong perspective.
- …the goal of the War on Drugs was to turn illegal drugs into a cash industry for law enforcement agencies?
- …this was done by allowing certain drug cartels, those who split profits with the law enforcement agencies, to import drugs while closing the borders to the other cartels?
- …the United States Government provided weapons to all cartels, including the ones who don’t split profits with them, so this would drive up the price due to the additional security needed to move drugs across the border?
- …this was done by arresting distributors and users in the United States so the arrest and conviction statistics could be used as justification for tax funding of these law enforcements actions?
- …this was done by infiltrating the prison systems with guards who double as distributors?
If all of these things were done, we would have a situation just like the one we are facing today. One where…
- …border violence breaks out among drug cartels as they fight to bring drugs across the border.
- …the border isn’t locked down and, in fact, seems to be open and guarded in certain high traffic areas.
- …large amounts of cash from international sources suddenly show up in certain large banks as part of the government bailout process.
- …the majority of those in the prison system are there on drug-related crimes.
- …prison guards make extra money through dealing drugs to inmates.
- …dealing illegal drugs would be one of the most lucrative businesses in the United States.
I don’t know if the purpose of the war on drugs is different from the one being stated. However, when I changed my perspective and considered that the War on Drugs is designed to control who brings drugs into the United States, everything suddenly made sense to me.
What do you think? Has the War on Drugs just been a cover to control the economy of illegal drugs in the United States? Is something else going on here? Leave your comments below.
