Country music star Glen Campbell has died. And guess what, practically every tribute mentioned about him? That he had a drugs problem at one point in his life. As if it is so important that it simply needs to be told, otherwise the whole picture about the man would not be complete. Even though Campbell’s private demons are of no one’s concern and he should be judged on his music and his guitar playing skills. But that is how drugs are sold, you see – casually and persistently and in connections with famous people.
It has gotten to a point that we now have world leaders known for their drug use. Here’s an eye-opener for you: the three US presidents before the current one, Donald Trump, were self-confessed drug users. Disturbing, isn’t it? Three consecutive leaders of the free world, who each spent eight years as Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful military machine in the world, with enough nukes to destroy the planer many times over, were doing dope in their younger years and might have been still doing it when they were in the White House. This is so absurd and ridiculous that it should never have been allowed to happen.
Let me put this in a very simple formula for you: drug addicts, including former ones, should be banned from occupying elected office. Period. They cannot be trusted with their judgement, they are mentally unstable and they are morally corrupt because it means they had crossed the line of civilised behaviour.
We have reached a stage when drugs and drug taking are openly glamorised throughout the whole world, with elected politicians seeing no problem with talking about legalising them. During the last US presidential campaign that left-wing lunatic, Bernie Sanders, the Democratic candidate, promised to legalise cannabis if he became president. And no one had a word with him and told him to cut that crap.
If you look at the way drug taking is presented in the movie and music industries, on television and radio, in books and newspapers you will get a notion that it is a massive and consistent campaign to get people to accept drugs as part of life. The scale of the problem is cunningly exaggerated by the so-called ‘experts’, to brainwash everyone into believing that drugs are now taken by an overwhelming number of people, when it’s not the case at all. Governments in so-called ‘civilised’ countries are reluctant to crack down on the drug trade and find every possible way of relaxing punishment for people caught using and selling drugs. A false narrative is plugged by liberal politicians and media that the war on drugs is not working and that it would be better to remove all restrictions. That could only mean that these politicians and hacks are either drug users themselves, have someone in the family who is or are paid by the drug lobby to do it.
But, of course, the main promoters of drugs are based in the entertainment industry. Have you noticed how more and more films and books and plays are now devoted to drugs? As if it is something that everyone is keen on knowing about. And it does not stop there. The moment some movie actress or actor, pop star, TV or radio personality gets caught using dope or confesses to having a drug problem, he or she gets support from all over the place and enjoys a career boost. It often seems that every celebrity is required to acknowledge drug taking so as to progress. In a normal world these people should be busted by cops for plugging their sick habits. Especially as many of them make up these stories for notoriety.
The power of the drug lobby is obviously getting stronger with the years. It now has come to a situation when it is no big deal for politicians to acknowledge that they have ‘experimented’ with drugs, only for everyone to nod their heads and say, ‘Well, everyone is doing it now so why not our political rulers.’ I still remember the day when six cabinet ministers in Britain all came out confessing to have used drugs in the past. And no one objected. They were actually treated as some heroes.
It’s quite amazing that the most powerful nation in the world, the United States, that can project its military might thousands of miles away from its territory, cannot stop the drug shipments coming into the country from Central and Latin America. The only explanation can be that the drug cartels have their people in Washington who block any serious attempts to destroy the drug trade.
The drug lobby cunningly introduces an argument that people should themselves decide whether to take drugs or not. Drug taking is presented as a matter of personal choice, freedom to decide what is best for you. But if you consider the massive campaign that is openly conducted to promote drugs and make them look cool then it is not exactly a case of making a free choice, is it? It is a more of a case of resisting the constant brainwashing in favour of drug use.
Time to get tough on drugs. And on politicians and celebs who promote them.Share
