I think the press and the politics play a way larger part than they should in the judiciary system. The majority of people don’t stop to read in between the lines or take the time to really form an opinion og their own but instead buy the whole opinion of a journalist or a politician on a case (in Manson case it was Nixon condemning him even before the trial started!!! It should have been declared a mistrial right then!). My God the atrocities that were committed on US soil just so that they could go on and keep sending people to their death in this fucking war that was the Vietnam war. Now the same thing is happening in Irak. And it all started supposedly because they THOUGHT that MAYBE they had weapons of mass destruction. How come we KNOW that North Korea HAS LOTS OF THEM, its leader is totally out of control and could potentially become very dangerous and no one is doing anything about it? Why didn’t they go there instead?? Answer? Because there’s nothing to gain there, there’s no oil… Nothing! It’s a country completely filled with people who are totally under the control of their government and doing stuff that is so humiliating and debilitating that it would drive any one of us, the never the less lucky ones in comparison, out of their god dam mind!
Also why don’t they stop treating the drug problem as if it was a judiciary problem when it should be addressed in fact as a MEDICAL problem. Portugal have been doing it for more than ten years now and they have the stats to prove that it works. The way I see it is that they just don’t care. As long as they put people away or ruin them financially or mentally with a blatant racism. It’s even better if they are Black or Latinos and they maintain a constant flow of fatherless and/or motherless families since the parents become absent figures in their kids life because they are either in jail, jobless, homeless or in the best cases, working 2 jobs to be able to barely make ends meet. Trump has just presented a new tax program that even the Republicans and people who are supposed to be on the same side as Trump are ashamed of backing up because it is way too obviously in favor or the wealthy people. Making deeper and deeper the pit already abysmal that there is between rich and poor since we were imposed this fucking senseless neo-liberalism economy that is supposed to be the best way to do things, well excuse me but I totally disagree!!
I just hope that our kids or people from the First Nations (think about this one before picturing in your mind the image of a drunk ”indian”please!!) can save us from the mess we are in so that future generations will be based on those spiritual values that should be the very foundation of any society that calls itself HUMAN. It seems to me that the thought of having the possibly to become an animal never has been so tempting. In other words, the more I get to see how the world is turning, the more I wish we would behave like whales but then again I would be hunted down constantly and probably already would have lost the members of my family, these same family members I love, cherish, respect and protect more than anything or anyone in this world because it is how these huge whale’s brains are wired. So each time one of my peers is killed or captured, I suffer 100 times more than any human being would.
I have never been so convinced that the greed and the egoistic psychopath business and/or political maniacs in suit and ties of the world are out aiming right for the kill in any which way they can and succeeding 99.9% of the time. No one is really able to say or do anything anymore because even if we may not all admit it, the vast thinking majority has realised a long time ago that we are indeed monitored each second of our lives and very few people do not auto censure what they are saying on the net and in public. Selfless well-intentioned whistleblowers are now considered enemies of the country they are so desperately and heroically trying to save and disinformation has never been so rampant. We are reduced to be desperate witnesses of the downfall of spiritual, social and cultural values and mourn the total and unequivocal epic failure of all those things we dared to dream in the sixties and the seventies; Back when everything was still possible, back when ”we could plan a murder or start a religion.”–Jim Morrison, Angels And Sailors, An American Prayer, 1978
