EPIDEMIC

I am not part of whatever drug deal Sondland and Mulvaney are cooking up

John Bolton

(Former national security advisor for president Donald Trump)

I begin this with my opinion that there are no coincidences. That things that seem relative are relative. That us as humans afraid of out vulnerabilities tend to act as if what we see doesn’t exist. especially if it goes against our faith, logic, or reality. We tend to put ourselves into these bubbles of protection and the internet has made it worse. Giving us a private world in which our reality is our perception. Community no longer exist or if it does its in celebration of trivial things. Community means “common unity”. One must have a common mission in order to have a common reason for unity. It seems these common reasons have been attacked dividing us down to singularity. This division has helped to proliferate one of the most dangerous diseases man is confronted with on this planet. addiction not only afflicts the physical body, but it afflicts the mind and the depths of the soul. It distorts the reality of the one who is afflicted. Addiction can be to anything which is why its so dangerous, but when it involves the consumption of chemicals it becomes more dangerous than any affliction on earth. With the ability to distort the mind of the partaker any addictive drug synthetic or natural can send the user on a chaotic episode endangering themselves and others.

  • CRACK COCAINE

As I have said I do not believe in coincidences. In the 80’s the meddling of the united states in south American affairs brought about the first epidemic the country would face. Its first bout with death. The crack epidemic destroyed countless lives and communities mostly  African American. This epidemic started by the united states government in an attempt to attain funding for a covert operation in Nicaragua. To this day the united states government denies the allegation as fact, but investigative journalist have uncovered massive amounts of evidence that not only was the CIA behind it, but they specifically targeted those communities. The result of this epidemic was mass incarceration, broken homes and drug wars resulting in mass death and genocide. Crack though powerfully addictive did not take lives as a result of its use. The deaths from crack cocaine came mainly from quality of life issues as the users life deteriorated and spontaneous acts of rage, violence and insanity. Crack cocaine created a massive amount of programs that needed federal funding and in many states these funds were then diverted once awarded. It seems human lives in America are a matter of dollars and cents.

  •  HEROINE / OPIODS

This is Americas latest fight with death. In 2000 – 2001 the united states decided to go to war with Iraq and invade Afghanistan. Everyone was told America was fighting to liberate Kuwait from the oppression of Saddam Hussein. Before the united states reached Baghdad saddam set all the oil fields on fire. Everyone knew what America was doing there. Everyone knew that a lie was being created to start a war with Iraq, but that didn’t stop them from approving the funds and military force. Iraq was conquered swiftly as bush flew on to an aircraft carrier under the banner of mission accomplished. With all the attention focused on Iraq few people were researching what was going on in Afghanistan. Bloody battles were being waged all over on of its biggest if not its biggest export opium. As I said I don’t believe in coincidences, but its interesting how the heroine epidemic didn’t begin until after the Afghanistan invasion. No heroine has been around for along time as was cocaine, but there was never an epidemic on the scale that we have seen today. The prevalence of this drug is amazing as it affects every race equally except the European American. while many see this as providence, that karma has appeared to destroy the European community. My feelings are if it has, what karma will other races face for ignoring the ills of such an addiction. Unlike most drug addictions heroine withdrawal can  kill the user. The options of use from needle, sniffing, even in pill form provided by physicians. This epidemic has gotten so far out of hand and uncontrollable that states are thinking of legalizing it.

There was once a time that the united states used the might and muscle of the poor to propel the country into the forefront of all global affairs and economics. Placing the future of America on the backs of those who held less. Now it seems the future has been placed on the souls of those who have no choice but to sell theirs to survive. The concoction of such schemes could only come from the minds of a devil. An evil person preying and destroying everything in hopes to attain paradise on earth through material possession. It seems all that we thought was acceptable was a covert way to get to our families and souls. As we watch all the things we hold true and dear easily corrupted by the ideal of more and better. The next epidemic I fear could be an extinction level event. In my opinion it will be the proliferation of firearms and the use of hateful rhetoric to fuel the use of those firearms. America needs to wake up or fall victim to its own destruction. I doubt that this is what the framers of the constitution envisioned. I doubt this is what Harriet Tubman fought so hard for us to become. I doubt Jesus died for us to watch each other suffer in such animalistic ways. I doubt the prophet Muhammad (saw) would be ok watching what technology and ingenuity has done to mankind. this is not a democratic nor republican issue. this is a human issue. If you watched the videos in this article then you see that this has nothing to do with politics or ideology. This has every thing to do with the destiny of man. We must get back to community. We must get back to our humanity. Free ourselves from our bubbles and take a look at the reality those bubbles have created for us. It reminds me of the matrix when neo woke up for the first time and saw the rows and rows of hibernating humans in there bubbles.
