The Healing Power Of Magic Mushrooms And The Fascism Of Big Pharma

by Ian R Thorpe Magic Mushrooms, Hemp (Cannabis) and many other plantts tha have healing but also narcotic or hallucinogenic properties are subject to legal sanction. Is this concern for the public or just government control freakery and Big Pharma fascism? Contact us:

The Healing Power Of Magic Mushrooms And The Fascism Of Big Pharma

“The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out. He will be wiser but less cocksure, happier but less self-satisfied, humbler in acknowledging his ignorance yet better equipped to understand the relationship of words to things, of systematic reasoning to the unfathomable Mystery which it tries, forever vainly, to comprehend.” –Aldous Huxley, ‘The Doors of Perception: Heaven and Hell’

When ill or in pain we are at our most vulnerable and also more ready than at other times to succumb to the bullying of political, religious and corporate power. Abuse of power has therefore been linked for many centuries to the power healers and those who control them exercise over us when we are sick. The Monk - Physicians of the Medieval Christian church treated wounds and burns with poultices made from dried animal dung and urine 'to encourage the body to make pus that would draw out the evil humours. Whether the patient recovered or not was in the hands of God, they said. Few people recovered, some were saved by having limbs amputated, most died of blood poisoning. In the same era wise women were being hanged or burned as witches for washing wounds with warm wine, closing them with stitches and bathing the seam with infusions of antiseptic herbs while giving the patient tea made from an infusion of poppy seeds to relieve the pain. A few centuries later, while wise women were still being imprisoned, transported to the penal colonies or if tried before liberal judges, pilloried for prescribing willow bark tea for headaches, graduates from medical schools like Edinburgh and London were still treating headaches with poultices of dried cat shit and urine. A 'scientist once told me that where willow bark tea is 'magical thinking' aspirin is fine because it is 'scientific'. Aspirin was first made from an extract of willow bark (it's synthesized now but the chemical constitution of the active ingredient, salicylic acid, is the same). The Establishment never lets go of power easily.

Similar abuse of power is in evidence when the growth of certain plants that have grown naturally for millions of years is made illegal. Plants have nourished and healed us since man first stood erect, but political man and scientific man, two sub species that have more in common with Homo Nazius Illegimatus than Homo Sapiens Sapiens are gluttons for power and control. Fighting relentless crusades for power and control in present day, governments in the developed world cut down trees and plough up meadows to plant in place of the wild species, genetically engineered monstrosities, plants that could never have evolved in nature because natural selection would have aborted them as offences against the proper order.

Other control freaks pour concrete on fertile soil that or poisons with chemicals that could not exist in nature the water table from which plants drawn life giving moisture. Since the so called 'age of enlightenment', scientific man and political man have waged war on nature. Their minions blunder through forest, moor and pasture like a herd of robot elephants, destroying eco systems and the disease he is enabling. Due to this inherent greed for power and control, our leaders and academics have betrayed the sacred trust that must exist between our planet and the life forms that inhabit it.

Political Man and Scientific Man believe that if they destroy everything else they can become Gods.

Ironically it doesn't work like that.

Since the 'age of enlightenment' several medicinally beneficial plants with important applications such as cannabis (good for preventing and retarding cancer and treating many other ailments including arthritis) have been banned and possessing them criminalised. Possessing uncontrolled extracts from the poppy plant might easily land you in jail. Magic mushrooms fall into the same category. The protection of public health is cited as justification for such criminalization but there is a double standard at work. While law enforcement agencies vigorously suppress the use of these natural substances, doctors are legally prescribing highly addictive pharmaceuticals including mind altering drugs each capsule a time bomb, with potential consequences no worse than death itself. (Presription Addiction:What The Death Of Michael Jackson Said About Us All)

Psychedelic plants have been used in tribal societies throughout the globe for centuries. Cannabis grows around much of the world, Jimson Weed which produces a hallucinogen similar to datura, Wormwood, from which the active and highly addictive ingredient of the aperatif Absinthe that addled the brain of many French poets is obtained) and henbane are all native to the UK. All of these have been used by traditional healers but any attempt to instigate research into their benefits attracts a witch hunt because there is little potential profit from things that can easily be grown in a domestic garden.

Magic mushrooms pose no obvious risk to national security, the medical professions, the general population, or regulatory authorities. Government officials, who are besotted with authority to control large scale matters simply love to impose regulations. With the ability to heal countless disorders as well as provide long lasting positive benefits, it is no secret that Magic Mushrooms are remarkably potent and powerful plants possessing characteristics which could supersede many profitable patents held by drug companies. All these benefits of from one plant? This is the very type of power government employees cling to more tightly than a pit bull grips it's opponents throat, power for the sake of power, more addictive than any drug, natural or man made. Power such as this breeds fear, and fear turns men into animals, have you noticed how in the developed world with it's all powerful bureaucracies, social evolution seems to have slipped into reverse gear.

It is highly unlikely that the ban on the use of psychedelic drugs for medical reasons is due to government care and concern for the public. More probably those in government are so addicted to power and so paranoid about losing it they are overwhelmed by the kind of fear and panic their propaganda tries to generate in the public. Consider, mass education reached its peak in the nineteen - sixties, with the masses emerging from publicly funded education equipped to question the government and various elites that had always controlled life. By the late nineteen seventies the policy of dumbing down in education was already entrenched.

How fearful the political, business, religious and academic elites must have felt when they realised that ordinary people had the power to reject dependency on those elites, to think for themselves and to have the option of asking "why?" when told, "you must do this, you must not do that."

How does this fit in with the criminalisation of magic mushrooms? Simples, ignoring the fact that these fungi may prove beneficial for illnesses does not make the truth go away, research studies using psychedelic mushrooms show benefits in treating depression, migraine and neurological disorders as well as boosting the immune system (no links here, I'm not trying to offer medical advice). What does the law think debilitated individuals are to do once they are rightfully informed of an illegal plant with a high success rate of improving the quality of life in individuals? How can the government continue to deny a person the right to a full life? Furthermore, how could they possibly retain control of medicine if it was revealed the regulators had been complicit in a Big Pharma scam for decades?

As I have always said, they can't put us all in prison (though Barack Obama's authoritarian administration seems to be having a damn good try at imprisoning all Americans.)

Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening RIGHT NOW. That is the theory according to a group of esteemed physicists who aim to solve one of the universe’s mysteries.
Most people do not even consider the concept of time but there is nothing in the laws of physics to state that it should move in the forward direction that we know. The laws of physics are symmetric ultimately meaning that time could have easily moved in a backward direction as it does forward. Indeed some adherents to the ‘big crunch’ theory say time WILL run backwards when the universe stops expanding and starts contracting back in on itself.
