Legalization of Marijuana: April 13, 2017…. D- day for Canada – By Yvonne Sam

Legalization of Marijuana: April 13, 2017…. D- day for Canada

By Yvonne Sam

Canadian legalization of marijuana translates into violation of International Drug Laws. A bold move on the part of Prime Minister Trudeau—seemingly unaware of the ensuing ramifications?

On April 13, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent Canada and its citizens into a hypnotic frenzy by making good on his high-profile campaign promise—the passing of a Bill legalizing marijuana for recreation purposes, making Canada the first developed country in the world to legalize pot since the international war on drugs began in the 1970s. This stunning announcement can be juxtaposed for its truth and applicability to the sayings of Savoyard lawyer, historian and philosopher Joseph Le Maistre, “that every nation gets the government it deserves, and Alexander de Tocqueville, the famous French political thinker and historian,  speaking in the Chamber of Deputies just prior to the outbreak of the European Revolution who said: “We are sleeping on a volcano… A wind of revolution blows, the storm is on the horizon.    Continue reading

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — In 1976, archivists at Harvard’s natural history museum opened a drawer and discovered a haunting portrait of a shirtless enslaved man named Renty, gazing sorrowfully but steadily at the camera. Taken on a South Carolina plantation in 1850, it had been used by the Harvard biologist Louis Agassiz to formulate his now-discredited ideas about racial difference.        Continue reading

Mar 6th 2017 – by THE DATA TEAM

ON TUESDAY February 28th, in an address to a joint session of Congress, Donald Trump vowed to end America’s “terrible drug epidemic”. When discussing America’s social ills, Mr Trump has a tendency to exaggerate. But on the subject of drugs, the president’s characteristically dark and apocalyptic tone may well have been warranted.

In 2015 more than 52,000 Americans died of drug overdoses, according to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. That is an average of one death every ten minutes.     Continue reading

The Digital Storm: Blowing Away the Human Mind

By John Stanton – – Global Research, March 01, 2017

Brain_IllustrationTemporal compression, as it is technically called, is an event that concretely modifies everyone’s daily life at the same time. In the face of this acceleration of daily life, fear has become an environment even in a time of peace.

We are living in the accident of the globe, the accident of instantaneous simultaneity and interactivity that have now gained the upper hand over ordinary activities…With the phenomena of instantaneous interaction that are now our lot, there has been a veritable reversal, destabilizing the relationship of human interactions and the time reserved for reflection in favor of the conditioned responses produced by emotion…    Continue reading
