Want to end the protests and riots? End the War on Drugs

The War on Drugs is the immediate cause of, and pretext for, the system of oppression, and police violence and militarization. Ending the War on Drugs is also a project that can unite rather than divide, something that people from different races and different ideologies can agree on and get behind.

Were the Branch Davidians ‘Cooking Meth?’

The subject of whether methamphetamine, or any other “drug,” was being manufactured or distributed at Mount Carmel under the direction of David Koresh will come up again as this series progresses. For now, let’s look at the claim made by the ATF.  Where did they make the accusation that was repeated in the House hearings and by the press? It was not in the search warrant for the February 28th ATF raid, where most people would expect to see evidence and affidavit testimony laid out. So, how was this tale constructed?   Mount Carmel’s Past  Anyone with access to public documents would’ve...

Year Zero: Moralism of the State, Prohibited Pleasure

In Episode 53 Tommy takes a more philosophy driven reasoning for the prohibitions America has and does face. He asserts that every prohibition is a law designed to defeat the body in order for the individual to be useful for the furtherance of the state. Any person participating in drugs, excessive drinking, prostitution, or any other prohibited activity that fulfills the desires of the body in a way that may be damaging must either give up their secularist lifestyle or be forced to serve the state through imprisonment. Listen to Year Zero...

Another Delay for New Jersey Cannabis Legalization

An ongoing political saga took another unpredicted turn last month. After over a year of building momentum, hopes for a legislative vote on legalizing the adult-use of recreational cannabis have once again faded. Senate President Steve Sweeney announced he is no longer working towards a legislative solution, instead proposing a ballot referendum in 2020. In the meantime, he pledged to continue efforts to expand the Garden State’s medical marijuana program. He also expressed his support for an expungement bill. On May 15, 2019, Sweeney tweeted “We will move forward with the expansion of...

Collateral Damage

Why should you care about what the cops did to this grandma -- or this one -- in the name of the war on drugs? As long as it did happen to you it's fine. Government knows best.

Year Zero: Manufactured Predators

In Episode 48 Tommy takes a look at the docuseries The Killing Season, a 2017 A&E series that featured two documentary filmmakers in a cross country journey to find the Long Island Serial Killer. As he watched the series Tommy was taken aback by statistics and obstacles that continued to pop up. Since 1976 there have been 700,000 reported murders nation wide. 220,000 of those murders have gone unsolved. In 2017 only 61% of 21,000+ murder investigations led to an arrest (convictions unknown). That's over 8,000 unsolved murders in 2017. While police across the US failed to solve several...
