Fear is the foundation of most governments.
Government has long used fear to erode liberty and further statist goals. The War on Drugs is no different. Pushingback.com has a story today on “extreme Ecstasy.” What is extreme Ecstasy? Ecstasy with meth in it.
ONDCP does not want you to think about the failure, death, corruption, and tyranny they promote. After all we have arrested millions and wasted billions fighting both meth and E and guess what? Somehow, both are still readily available and now come conveniently packaged together.
Instead of thinking about the War on Drugs ONDCP would rather you feel about the War on Drugs. Specifically, ONDCP wants you to be afraid of Super Drugs that are coming for your family. Americans today readily trade freedom for security.
EE is the latest drug war propoganda ploy-Superdrugs.The idea being that new powerful superdrugs are coming to kill your children. Only by supporting Prohibition can you stop this new threat.
ONDCP has used this angle before. Super Pot is the most recent example. The feds sell the lie that today’s pot is much more dangerous than pot from the 60’s. Ergo, even though baby boomers smoked pot without getting arrested or ruining there lives, it is now necessary to arrest their children. Why? Because Super Pot is different than good old 60’s pot.
Do not believe the lies of government propagandists. If they had any knowledge or talent they would be working in the private sector. This latest scaretactic will not be the last government attempt to use fear to keep you from thinking.
Extreme Ecstacy is not coming to kill you or your family. You do not need more failed Prohibition, more DEA agents, more drug arrests, or more funding for ONDCP to keep you safe. Just ask Ron Paul.
Thanks to our media and many government officials, Americans have become conditioned to view the state as our protector and the solution to every problem. Whenever something terrible happens, especially when it becomes a national news story, people reflexively demand that government do something. This impulse almost always leads to bad laws and the loss of liberty. It is completely at odds with the best American traditions of self-reliance and rugged individualism.
