Propaganda of incarceration nations

Return to top.

Propaganda of incarceration nations. Reaganism is about drug war, code-word racism, hate radio, mass incarceration, and above all, trickle-down economics (Reaganomics).

Drug war + Trickle-down Reaganomics, = mass incarceration and mass control.

Cult of Personality. (2).

See Wikimedia Commons: Category:Government propaganda. Note the "glorious mission" or "glorious war" nature of much propaganda. Like the Republican-led Holy War, the "War on Drugs". See Wikipedia: War on Drugs. It is really a war on some drug users. This particular glorious war was reinvigorated by the cult leaders, Ronald and Nancy Reagan. The B-movie actor Ronald (6) Wilson (6) Reagan (6) is still worshiped like a God (or idol) by some segments of the Republican Party.

"Fascists always steal the word 'freedom'."

Return to top.

"Isn't it interesting how fascists always steal the word 'freedom'?"

Above quote is from Henrik Vanger in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

"Boots on the ground". It is not difficult to understand why much of the world fears U.S. power and its "police actions" at home and abroad. Many question the moral authority of the USA. Some reasons why: The Republican-initiated Iraq War, and civil war that followed when the U.S. disbanded the Iraqi army, and one million people died in the ensuing anarchy. A welcome liberation became a clueless hated occupation when the US did not leave right away when the infamous WMDs were not found. In the USA the Republican-led U.S. Drug War has become a police and prison occupation of U.S. cities, and is greatly responsible for the astronomical incarceration rate in the USA. Republican "freedom" at home and abroad. "Freedom fries" anyone?

The 27 reasons why US does not have moral authority to lead the war on drugs

Return to top.

War On Drugs: 27 Reasons Why U.S. Doesn't Have The 'Moral Authority' To Lead It. By Roque Planas, Nov 18, 2012. Huffington Post. Expand slideshow to full size.

Both the Iraq War and the Drug War were/are profitable Wars of Choice against fabricated "Enemies". See: How the Bush Administration Sold the War – and We Bought It by Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame Wilson. See Wikipedia: Iraq and weapons of mass destruction. Listen to Hans Blix and Arianna Huffington, too.

These multi-trillion dollar wars are the latest "glorious crusades" (that good ol' boy, moron Bush actually used the word "crusade" at first to describe the Iraq War). See: The Three Trillion Dollar War - about the Iraq War. See Brown University Costs of War project. See: Cost of U.S. drug war. The better (and much cheaper) way is harm reduction. See: Portugal. Cannabis-related links. And drug users are no one's "enemy".

The U.S. Drug War. Republicans lead. Sheep follow. Everybody pays. Democrats have to be pushed to wind down the drug war, and to support the middle class instead of the privileged. Otherwise, another Ralph Nader candidate will come along to throw a monkey wrench into the whole bloody machine (speech by Mario Savio starts at 22 seconds into the video). Obama is the first Democrat President in awhile who isn't basically middle management for Republicans. Clinton was the last moderate Republican to lead the country. Stockholders got rich while income and wealth inequality continued to increase, and the incarceration rate continued to skyrocket due to the drug war and "truth-in-sentencing" (mandatory minimum sentencing). See: National Rifle Association and mandatory minimum sentencing.

Is the U.S. Republican-led, Worldwide War on Cannabis over?

Feds will allow states some leeway on cannabis laws

Return to top.

As Oregon's chief federal prosecutor last year, Holton was in the vanguard of that crackdown, sending letters to owners, operators and landlords of storefront pot outlets warning they faced prosecution and civil enforcement actions for involvement in the sale of cannabis.

A reason why states need some leeway:

Conservative war, ignorant sheep, and harm reduction

US incarceration timeline.gif

November Coalition graph. Some Congressmen and police who prosecuted the War on Drugs now believe it caused a large increase in the United States incarceration rate. See Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, and larger chart with sources. See template. Incarceration peaked in 2008.

Return to top.

Harm reduction works best when combined with single-payer health care. See Physicians for a National Health Program. See larger version for money saved.

Conservatives worldwide love war, especially the drug war. War is profitable for big businesses that wage wars, incarcerate POWs, house troops, and treat wounds. Many voters, like the lemmings they are, enable the wasteful spending of conservative wars, and then have to wind them down when they can no longer be sustained and paid for. Average taxpayers clean up the mess, and pay for the collateral damage of broken bodies and lives. Conservative bosses, and subservient sheep.

Harm reduction is better than drug war.

The majority of people incarcerated in prisons and jails in the USA are in due to drug-related offenses, crimes to get money for drugs, or drug-related parole or probation violations. Wikipedia: Drug-related crime. The number of inmates in the USA has increased almost 5 times over since 1980. It peaked in 2008. Obama's Democrat landslide in 2008 turned the incarceration rate around. But the USA still has the highest incarceration rate of any nation (b c). The cost of the U.S. drug war is at least 1.5 trillion dollars. Cannabis is safer! Share link.

Obama's passion and mojo

Return to top.

Could just as well be describing the Drug War.
Sen. Barack Obama before the Iraq War:

"What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne. What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income — to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression. That's what I'm opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics."

The elephant is the mascot of the Republican Brownshirts. See: Holy War on Drugs, Republican-led mass incarceration. Share link.

$228 billion total in 2007 according to BJS data. $36 billion in 1982 (not adjusted for inflation). Detailed yearly costs timeline is here (scroll down). See inflation-adjusted chart. BJS is U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics. The majority of prisoners are incarcerated due to the drug war. See drug war charts and maps. State prisons averaged $31,286 per inmate in 2010.

Election Day victories, November 2012

Return to top.

The American states of Colorado and Washington have voted to legalize cannabis, and Massachusetts becomes the eighteenth state to approve cannabis for medical use. See 2012 vote for cannabis. Prohibition, your days are numbered!

Why did U.S. Republicans get their asses handed to them in 2012? Well, besides their idiotic rape comments, maybe it is because their support for "freedom" was a sham. For example; at the time of the election very few Republicans had cosponsored H.R. 6335 (see section on cosponsors). That bill would not have done anything more to legalize marijuana or medical marijuana; it would simply have allowed medical marijuana centers operating legally under state law to continue to do so. It would have amended the Controlled Substances Act so as to exempt real property from civil forfeiture due to medical-marijuana-related conduct that was authorized by State law. This is Republican "freedom":
See list of incarceration rates by country (b c). Compare the rates. Due to the Drug War and long mandatory sentences the USA has the highest incarceration rate in the world. See cost of U.S. drug war: 1.5 trillion dollars!

Hey Republicans! The drug war is taking us over the fiscal cliff! The drug war is another multi-trillion dollar war that needs to be wound down. Obama wound down the Iraq War, and is winding down the war in Afghanistan. Obamacare will not increase in cost as fast as the previous healthcare chaos. Single-payer universal healthcare, of course, is the most efficient and cost saving, but Democrats would never have been able to get that passed in Obama's first term.

Cost of U.S. drug war. Even $1.5 trillion dollars is conservative since many crimes are committed in order to get money for drugs. State prisons averaged $31,268 per inmate in 2010. See: Drug war causes high U.S. incarceration rate. See: Economics - Drug War Facts. See: 32 Reasons Why We Need To End The War On Drugs - Business Insider. See: The Budgetary Impact of Ending Drug Prohibition.

A Chart That Says the War on Drugs Isn't Working. By Serena Dai. The Atlantic Wire. 12 Oct 2012. "The numbers on this chart alone don't add up to $1.5 trillion, which represents a more inclusive count of drug control spending, with prison costs and state level costs determined by the Office of National Drug Control Policy, but instead to $800 billion."
