Drugs that make people realize peace are criminalized by the military-industrial complex that writes most of our laws and owns most of our government. Thus the opposition is removed on a cultural level. It's a sick strategy, and is the main reason we have the largest prison population in world history, both per capita and in raw numbers. It all spiked after Nixon's drug war started.

Is the asking of questions the root cause of uniquely human suffering? by magnora in C_S_T

Hey I'm sorry I didn't respond earlier. Thank you for your beautiful and thoughtful response.

You bring up some very good questions. Neti neti sounds very interesting and kind of similar to my own approach, but I've never head this name until now. Meditation is such an interesting thing and I appreciate your perspective.

Good post. The phrase itself has become a smear campaign. Anything they don't want said, they will begin to associate with that term. It's exactly a thought terminating cliche, as you said.

I've began using the term "collusion" instead of "conspiracy" because usually that's what I'm referring to. And I use the term hypothesis instead of theory, because that's usually what it is. I even made /r/collusion and /r/collusionhypothesis for the purposes of getting away from this intentionally-soiled term.

Another interesting tidbit is that the CIA program to do this through the media was created right after the JFK assassination.

I made another account and tried to re-create what happened with my other one, and I couldn't. I don't know why my magnora7 account is logged out of the lounge, and I don't know the username or password to log back in, do you? It says "authorization invalid" when I try to log in

Anyway, I think things are working fine now, if we can just fix whatever happened to my account

I'm loving how the sidebar chat looks on /r/musicvideos, it's pretty damn slick
