I love conspiracy theories. More to the point, I love laughing at them… Except in the case of all these terrible September 11th theories that just make me sick. If you honestly think that our own government crashed planes into the towers or brought the things down themselves, you’re just insane, and I mean that in all seriousness. You are insane and don’t deserve to share your ideas with anyone. If it’s bothering you that much, why not just leave the country and spare us your diatribe in the process? Oh… You like the freedoms here. Okay.
Anyway, I saw this on Digg (oh boy!) today. The premise of the story all boils down to the fact that someone, somewhere, is trying to (poorly) point out that the reason LSD is illegal is because the CIA discovered it is the anti-mind controlling substance, so to speak, and they couldn’t allow it to interfere with their plans. Haha, right. You have a tiny paragraph at the bottom of your post and we should take your complete and total word for it. Yes, this is how conspiracy theories work. They’re just that! Theories. No proof at all, and what little proof there might be is so subjective anyway, that it might as well not be proof.
Now, the rest of the post seems pretty spot on common sense. Whoever it is talks about drugs, their side effects and what they do, and then talks about how some addictive drugs (sugar, caffeine) are legal and some (cocaine, heroin) aren’t. How some are sponsored and taxed by the government and how some are just flat out illegal. Personally, I don’t think any drug is worth the time it takes to pop one in your mouth. There’s always a side effect to using a chemical drug, and there are almost always natural preventatives to the things you buy pills for. Except maybe a headache, but that’s usually caused by stress or something and is a warning to slow down and rest. If you’re not going to rest, then your brain is going to make you! But now people just pop a pill and keep going and get strokes and heart attacks and other more severe problems. Anyway…
He completely ruins it by saying that the CIA is behind it all as a front for mind control drugs that they’re testing on their own people, and that they banned LSD because it’ll break the affects they’re trying to get. To quote:
LSD is the antithesis of mind control; the CIA discovered this fact and has done everything to keep it top-secret. The government is terrified of LSD becoming available to the masses. People just might think independently, and ignore the governmentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s propaganda. The last thing the government wants is the people unbinding themselves from their shackles and taking control of their own lives.
The government relies on your perceived dependency to stay in business and stay in control. Therefore as an American you MUST support the War on Drugs or else you are a terrorist. That means keeping drugs illegal, and forcing addicts to pay criminals and terrorists for drugsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ how else are we going to fund both sides of the War or Terror?
Way to blow any credibility. Let me get this straight. You’re trying to promote the legal use of drugs such as LSD? What others are you wanting to make legal? It almost sounds like you’re wanting all of them to be legal. Why? Do you have any good reason besides “the government is controlling our brains”? I don’t know about you, but I feel a bit safer knowing that LSD and the like is illegal to obtain. I would prefer not to have to worry about doped up loonies driving on highways when I go to college.
“Well, what about alcohol, GS? That’s as mind-impairing as any of those drugs and it’s legal!” Yes, but, hey, guess what? It didn’t use to be. It is now, though, and I think it’s the most damaging of all mind-impairing drugs because it is legal. By allowing alcohol, true, there is no basis for not allowing these other drugs. But, you know what? I don’t agree with allowing alcohol. If asked, point blank, “GS, do you think alcohol should be illegal?” I will respond, point blank, “You better believe it.”
But there you have it, folks. The CIA banned LSD because it interferes with their mind control plans and propaganda machines designed to force you to do what they want you to do! You heard it here, first! Right on the internet! The source for everything truth! And it has 512 votes on Digg! So it has to be true! More like… 512 people so completely out of touch with reality agree with what the article says, and they want it to become big news. Yeah, well… This isn’t news any more than my site is endorsed by CNN. It’s one of many conspiracy theories, and it’s just as ludicrous as all the others. Only this time, the guy didn’t even bother to show any proof. Way to watch too much X Files.
