I wanna complain ‘cos I think I like it
I get deranged when it's all gone quiet
You never have guessed the internal riot
I only drink ‘cos it helps me think
That I understand all the reasons why it…

It burns like some communal strength
Unrealised hence "unrealistic"
"Unite the world" but what it meant
Was needing targets, less fantastic

A unity of mutiny
Against the lie that we're all free
Sparks a continuity of invention sparked by desperate glee
Told it's useless to keep on and on and on and on
Fired the reaction even more

Now you're damned if you're right
Damned if you're wrong
Damned if you're right
Damned if you're wrong
Damned if you're right - Damned if you're wrong [x2]
This is what the anger's for [x2]

Timothy Francis Leary (October 22, 1920 – May 31, 1996) was an American psychologist and writer known for his strong advocacy of psychedelic drugs. President Richard Nixon once described Leary as "the most dangerous man in America"

The natural state of the brain is chaos... we're dealing with a complexity of in-formation... the first thing to do is to overwhelm your focused mind, your linear mind, by overloading signals, digital patterns, clusters of photons and electrons which produces a pleasant state of confused chaos... this is the state of the brain when it is ready to be in-formed... that is to be, re-programmed..."

"The human brain contains 100 billion neurons, each neuron is as powerful as a computer, and each neuron has around 10,000 connections with other neurons... within our forheads, there is a chaos... inside our brains, there is a galaxy of information, which is incomprehensible for linear minds.. this contrasts and compares perfectly with the chaos without... we're living in a universe which has 100 billion galaxies, each galaxy with star systems, planets, a complexity which to our minds right now, is chaotic... incomprehensible... "

"Chaos is beautiful. there are many times we are afraid, because we want order... we can't deal with confusion and disorder... we want form, we want rules... yes... throughout human history there have been people, religious leaders, political leaders, who will give you order. they will give you rules and commandments.. but chaos is basically good, relax... surf the waves of chaos, and learn how to re-design your own realities... sit back... flow... open your eyes... turn off your minds and focus, and let the waves of chaos roll over your brian... float, drift, zoom, design, create, re-order, your order, your style, from chaos... yes... yes... chaos... yes..."

"The aim... of human life... to know thyself... think for yourself, question authority... link with your friends... create.. create new realities... philosophy is a team sport... philosophy is the ultimate aphrodisiac pleasure... learning how to operate your brain, learning how to operate your mind, learning how to re-design chaos..."

"The religious leaders, the political leaders want to give you orders, to run your life, to determine how you think... the basic goal, is to operate your own mind... operate for yourself... "

"Around 3000 years ago, a group of human beings in Athens, Greece, developed a new philosophy... the basic religion of humanity, is called humanism... Socrates said, the aim of human life is to know thyself... create and design your own order out of chaos... Socrates did not give commandments, Socrates did not impose order, Socrates asked questions... he encouraged to speculate, design, create, interact their own versions of reality... Socrates said the way to perform philosophy, in small groups, raising questions, learning from each other, change, changing your mind, growing together, linking together... "
"it has been the authorities, the political, religious, educational authorities, who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, in-forming, forming our minds, with their view of reality... to think for yourself, you must question authority, and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable open mindedness, chaotic, confused, vulnerability, to inform yourself..."

"Then came Marshall McLuhan... in the 1950's... McLuhan said, in a Socratic sense, the medium is the message... the words you use, the modes of communication you use, determine the realities you inhabit... most of our lives, most of us live in realities determined by others, imprinted in our brains by education, by religion, by politics, by the authorities... McLuhan said, if you want to change your mind, change the medium, change the words your use, change the mode of communications... you change the medium, you change yourself, you change your society... in the 1960's a new mode of communication developed... television, kids growing up in the 1950's, learned how to tune in, turn on, fine tune, turn off, select, determine, what hits your eyeballs... you control your eyeballs, your eardrums, you direct and manage the media... to program your brain... McLuhan said, who controls the media, is programming your mind and your brain... "

"We are using in this tape, the new media of digital, multimedia, audiographic overload, attempting to create a state of open mindedness, pleasant vulnerability, in which we will in-form, imprint the messages of the sponsor, use your head, learn how to operate your brain..."

Despite the decades spent waging a global war on drugs, across the world drug markets continue to grow and drug-related harm continues to increase. If the true aim of the war on drugs was to reduce harm, then it has categorically failed.

Not only has punitive drug policy not eliminated drug use but it has had unintended consequences as people are encouraged to use drugs in riskier ways and are deterred from engaging with services which might otherwise have reduced the exposure to risk.

It causes incalculable harm itself as people are deprived of their liberty for drug-related offences, and contact with the criminal justice system is associated with a host of health and socioeconomic inequalities.

The chorus of voices calling for change is growing. Following the decriminalisation of the possession of drugs in Portugal, wider consideration of the approach has been recommended by the United Nations Chief Executives Board for Coordination, the Royal Society of Public Health, a recent House of Commons Health and Social Care Committee and the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police.

Others including the Global Commission on Drug Policy and Transform have highlighted the potential benefits of regulating the drug market, thereby starving criminal organisations of their most lucrative source of income. Furthermore, the ACMD has repeatedly recommended the wider adoption of harm reduction interventions, such as supervised drug consumption rooms. Regardless, the UK government has not indicated that they intend to change their approach in the foreseeable future.

Presumably, as Professor David Nutt has highlighted, this is because drug policy decisions in the UK, and elsewhere, are not primarily motivated by considerations of reducing harm; but by a moral judgement. The rhetoric goes – ‘it is immoral to use certain drugs (which were decided over 50 years ago without scientific basis) and people who choose to use these drugs, deserve to be punished’. This would include an estimated one in five 16-24 year olds who have used an illegal drug in the last year according to the most recent Crime Survey for England and Wales.

Proponents of punitive drug policy might argue that it is morally justifiable to punish people for using drugs in order to deter others from doing so, thereby reducing drug-related harm and leading to improvements in the health of the wider population. However, there is not convincing evidence that punitive policy deters people from using drugs – the Home Office itself published a report in 2014 highlighting that there is no clear relationship between the liberality of a country’s drug laws and the level of drug use in that country.
Regardless, even if this was effective, it is morally equivalent to putting people in prison for eating too much cake to encourage others to eat a healthier diet. When described as such – as what it is – punishing a member of society as a means, to the end of ‘encouraging the others’, is clearly incompatible with the foundations of European political philosophy, and contemporary guidelines in public health ethics. This approach would not be tolerated, if it were not for the ingrained idea that there is something special about illegal drugs, which makes using them morally wrong.

Beyond historical socio-political idiosyncrasies, it is not at all clear what distinguishes illegal drugs like cannabis and amphetamines from legal drugs like tobacco and alcohol, which might explain the moral difference between them. There are many illegal drugs, with vastly different effects and risk profiles that have as much in common with each other as they do with those drugs that are legal.

In fact, the only characteristic that illegal drugs obviously have in common distinguishing them from legal drugs which we might identify as the source of their immorality, is precisely that they are illegal. This leads to a circular argument – these drugs are illegal because their use is immoral, and their use is immoral because they are illegal. Unfortunately, the circularity of this argument means that it is as logically unassailable to those who hold it as it is nonsensical to those who do not.

If policymakers feel that it is a moral imperative that is motivating drug policy decisions, then it is unsurprising that the mounting evidence in favour of other approaches to reduce harm has not been heeded. Reducing harm continues to be a secondary consideration behind propagating the ideology that drug use is morally wrong.

The persistence of punitive drug policy in the UK might be driven directly by policymakers, or indirectly by the electorate, as politicians try to avoid being seen as “soft on drugs”. The complexities of the arguments for drug policy reform are not as easily digestible as the metaphor that drug use is an enemy that needs to be fought, particularly for members of the public with busy lives who are not knowingly affected by the issue.

Joy Division were an English rock band formed in Salford in 1976. The group consisted of vocalist Ian Curtis, guitarist/keyboardist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook and drummer Stephen Morris.

Sumner and Hook formed the band after attending a Sex Pistols concert. While Joy Division's first recordings were heavily influenced by early punk, they soon developed a sound and style that made them one of the pioneers of the post-punk movement

Back in the 1990s, Portugal faced a heroin crisis. Most people knew someone affected by the lethal drug. Just two decades later, the country has one of the lowest drug-related death rates in the world. This dramatic turnaround isn't credited to a hard-line approach, but instead by decriminalizing all drugs

Betraying its founding mandate to assure drug, food and chemical safety in the interests of public health, the FDA today is a repressive bureaucracy serving pharmaceutical and agricultural greed and profits.

Vaccines, medical devices, prescription drugs are fast tracked at alarming rates through the FDA at the expense of scientific oversight to assure their efficacy and safety.

The result is hundreds of thousands premature deaths annually from pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines and medical devices and an epidemic of medical incompetence and fraud sanctioned by federal health officials.

Featuring many pioneering American and European attorneys, physicians, medical researchers and advocates of health freedom, War on Health lifts the veil on FDA’s militaristic operations against organic food providers and alternative physicians.

The album was banned in Germany, due to the violent artwork.

The album cover also drew a complaint from the Ontario Provincial Police in Canada, which led to record stores being told not to sell the album to persons under 18.

Two lovable hillbillies are headed to their "fixer-upper" vacation cabin to drink some beer, do some fishin', and have a good time.

Blood Quantum - Official Trailer

With the help of a mysterious pill that enables the user to access 100% of his brain abilities, a struggling writer becomes a financial wizard, but it also puts him in a new world with lots of dangers.

In the late 1980s two Melbourne teenage computer hackers known as Electron and Phoenix stole a restricted computer security list called 'Zardoz' and used it to break into some of the world's most classified and supposedly secure computer systems.

So fast and widespread was the attack no-one could work out how it had happened, until one of the hackers called the New York Times to brag about it. Ten years after their arrest, this dramatized documentary reveals not only how they did it but why, taking us headlong into the clandestine, risky but intoxicating world of the computer underground.

Motörhead were an English rock band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister, who was the sole constant member, guitarist Larry Wallis and drummer Lucas Fox.

The band are often considered a precursor to the new wave of British heavy metal, which re-energised heavy metal in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Though several guitarists and drummers have played in Motörhead, most of their best-selling albums and singles feature the work of Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor on drums and "Fast" Eddie Clarke on guitars.

The Black Knight is a fictional character who appears in a scene of the feature film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. As his name suggests, he is a knight dressed in black and behaves similarly to the standard character, a black knight.

He guards a "bridge" (in reality a short plank of wood) over a small stream which could have been easily stepped over by King Arthur but, for unknown reasons, he does not.

Although supremely skilled in swordplay, the Black Knight suffers from unchecked overconfidence and a staunch refusal ever to give up.
