Just read another blogger who is sort of a Keynesian, big government type who writes that lawmakers are failing to enact laws to keep children safe from opiates. Um, laws can't keep children safe from opiates. In fact, government monopoly protections and manchurian government puppets of the corporate elite are the very reasons why opiates are being produced, marketed and prescribed like Skittles. More laws and more government is the absolute LAST thing we need.
There is nothing anybody or any government can do to keep people from using drugs and drinking alcohol. It is also human nature to want to do something that some power-hungry idiot tells you not to do. The best way to un-tempt people is to decriminalize drugs and drug use. If you believe that more government and more laws are going to keep kids off drugs and keep kids from overdosing, I'm not sure I can help you. You're asking a collection of ego-maniacal psychopaths to help drug addicts, a group of people who don't care about anything other than satisfying corporate lobbyists in return for campaign money, which translates into votes. And remember, the candidates who promise the most free stuff to the masses get elected, so you are being played for a fool by voting that way.
For every law that is enacted criminalizing drugs or funding watered-down treatment/education programs, there is a clause protecting the interests of the pharmaceutical elite, thus ensuring more pills and more profit. Who do you think writes these laws anyway, such as the affordable care act, which was written by insurance lobbyists? It is naive to think that government can or even wants to just do the right thing. Government doesn't exist to do the right thing. Government doesn't exist for the people or for your children. Government exists for government and government only.
Isn't it painfully obvious by now that the bigger government grows, the more everything and everyone suffers. The economy suffers, the job market suffers, free enterprise suffers, small business suffers, wealth creation suffers, individual thought suffers, individual freedom and privacy suffers, creativity suffers, self-sustainability suffers, self-dependence suffers, your savings suffer, your retirement suffers, your safety and security suffer, your standard of living suffers, and the future of your children suffer as government engages in the all-out insanity of false war narratives, false flag attacks, occupations, interventions, war crimes, money printing, parabolic debt accumulation, spying, surveillance, militarization of local police forces, and the buying tanks and bullets for the DHS, which is a civilian, inter-border agency.
No offense, but you have to be sort of touched, like sort of brainwashed, to actually be asking for more government and more laws. Do yourself and your kids a favor and stop drinking the Kool Aid.
At any rate, it is the excessive amount of laws that help to keep kids on drugs. Let me explain. To begin with, released documents have proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that the CIA buys most of the hard drugs that enter America. The government and the CIA are directly respinsible for keeping drugs on the street. Furthermore, when more laws are written to criminalize drugs and drug use, kids actively seek out drugs, get hurt, get killed, overdose and go to prison. When prohibition ended and alcohol was re-leglalized, crime and underage use fell off a cliff.
You will say, "Well people will just sell the drugs on the black market anyway."
Is alcohol sold underground to kids? Nope. And neither would drugs because there is no incentive. Once you give something to everybody, you take away the lure and they no longer want it. Take something away, and they want it compulsively and obsessively. Like guns. What happens when the stupid government passes a new gun law? Everybody runs out and buys guns and ammo like there's no tomorrow, which isn't a bad idea, by the way, considering the current DHS is buying up thousands of automatic weapons, billions of hollow-point rounds, and thousands of armored tanks to use against its own people, which is rather despotic, totalitarian, unconstitutional and insane, don't you think?
Did you know that seniors are selling pills to get by? This is what government is doing - destroying the value of pensions and stealing them outright, thereby crushing middle class seniors and anybody else who is responsibly trying to stay out of debt and save money. Government keyensian policies are pure lunacy, and yet they give imbeciles like Paul Krugman a soap box in the NYT and a Nobel Prize in economics, which sort of makes sense considering the job of academic economists is to be completely wrong, considering there is no such thing as science when is comes to economics, markets, cycles, history, the future, and 7 billion people.
All government cares about is expanding and enriching themselves and maintaining power. They really don't care if you go broke, lose your house, lose your family and die. You are nothing but a tax slave, to be farmed and sheered until you can no longer produce. Banker bailouts, ZIRP and QE ensure that anybody saving money will be squashed and penalized to the max. The government and the fed HATE savers. They want everybody to spend everything they have and then rack up as much debt as humanly possible. Why? Because it spurs inflation which transfers wealth to the oligarchs and keeps government sociopaths in power, while padding the fed and the bankers. That's all they care about - power.
"Even though you try to put people under some control, it is impossible. You cannot do it. The best way to control people is to encourage them to be mischievous. Then they will be in control in its wider sense." Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind, p. 32.
"When taxes are too high, people go hungry. When government is too intrusive, people lose their spirit. Act for the people's benefit. Trust them; leave them alone. 75
If you want to govern the people, you must place yourself below them. If you want to lead the people, you must learn to follow them.66
When they think they know the answers, people are difficult to guide. When they know that they don't know, people can find their way. 65
If a nation is centered in the Tao [God], if it nourishes its own people and doesn't meddle in the affairs of others, it will be a light to all nations in the world. 61
Governing a large country is like frying a small fish. You spoil it with too much poking. Center your country in the Tao [God] and evil will have no power... Give evil nothing to oppose and it will disappear by itself. 60
If a country is governed with tolerance, the people are comfortable and honest. If a country is governed with repression [and corruption & fraud] [like America], the people are depressed and crafty. 58
The more prohibitions you have, the less virtuous people will be. The more weapons you have, the less secure people will be. The more subsidies you have, the less self-reliant people will be. Therefore the Master says: I let go of the law, and people become honest. I let go of economics, and people become prosperous. I let go of religion, and people become serene. I let go of all desire for the common good, and the good becomes as common as grass." 57 - Tao Te Ching.
