Lies And The State

Fingers Crossed

This article was written by Elizabeth Cameron and originally published at LewRockwell.com

I know there are some honorable people in government. I have even met some. This article is not about them. It is about those politicians, hereinafter referred to as “the government”, who aid and abet the proliferation of politically expedient lies in a thousand sneaky ways. They would appear to be the majority, or things would be better than they are.

I often hear questions like these: Why doesn’t the government address the issue of the link between psychotropic drugs and mass shootings? Why do they talk only about gun control as a means to “stop the violence”? Why don’t they get it? Why are they so dumb?

Listen: They are not dumb. They know exactly what they are doing. And when it comes to mass shootings, despite all the sympathetic things they say, they actually find such crises useful. “Problem-reaction-solution” is the traditional tool used by authoritarian regimes to expand their grip. This was once affirmed by Rahm Emmanuel, Obama’s former White House Chief of Staff, when he said, in a rare moment of candor, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”

If the federal gun-grabbers actually wanted solutions to the problem of mass shootings, they would look for actual causes. Without extreme public pressure, they are not going to do this. They will look only for causes, however specious, that support their position that more government control is the only solution. And they will try to paint as crazy anybody who argues otherwise.

Truth: Psychiatric drugs are implicated as a causative factor in mass shootings. Evidence of this abounds – certainly enough to justify a serious federal investigation. The government prefers to ignore this. Why? Because as long as they pretend not to see the connection, they can use the crisis du jour to fuel their gun grab; and because Big Pharma, who makes approximately a gazillion dollars a year on the sale of psych drugs, has tentacles into the government and lots of high-priced lobbyists, and the government is not keen to buck this power structure.

Truth: Gun-free zones allow for the accumulation of many bodies in an attack. This is obvious, because in a “gun-free zone” there is nobody to shoot back. Is the government going to acknowledge this? No. It doesn’t serve their agenda.

It is crucial to remember that if a problem persists despite the existence of solutions, then that problem is being held in place by those who profit from it. This is done by the proliferation of lies.

Lie: We must pass more gun laws to keep guns out of the hands of violent criminals. This does not pass the test of even kindergarten logic, because criminals are by definition law-breakers, and therefore will have weapons whatever the law says. Do people really think that somebody who will mow down little kids in a classroom is going to stop because the rulebook says he isn’t supposed to have a gun? We outlawed murder long ago. How come that didn’t stop him?

Lie: We must have gun-free zones to keep our kids safe. This is patently absurd. Any criminal who is intent upon destruction will go for the soft target every time. Why? Because it is a soft target! But even a drug-addled psychopath may be startled back into reality if he enters the school with a rifle and comes face to face with adults bearing drawn weapons. If he is not so startled, then he will go down quickly, just as he should, and the little kids will go home alive to their parents.

Lie: We need more psychotropic drugs to handle people with violent tendencies. This does not hold up under any serious observation of cause and effect. The evidence keeps piling up that the more we pump psychotropic drugs into people, the more mass shootings we get. Arguments that neglect this evidence can be designed only to pave the way for increased drug sales and a tighter symbiotic power structure between Big Pharma and the State.

Big Pharma profits from the expanding market of psychotropic drugs. Government gains power from civilian disarmament. They are not interested in solutions. For them, no matter how horrible this sounds, the slaughter of little kids in government schools presents them with a valuable opportunity; it provides fuel for their propaganda fires. They will, of course, never admit this; they will express only the deepest sympathy for “our loss”.

Any politician who really wants to solve the problem of mass shootings should be standing up loudly in opposition to gun control – not only the current push for new restrictions, but also 2nd Amendment infringements already in place – and should be calling for an immediate investigation into the connection between psychotropic drugs and mass shootings. Those politicians who prefer not to do this, whatever they may say to the contrary, are complicit in the lies and are therefore part of the problem.

The push for psychotropic drugs is built on a pack of lies. So is the push for gun control. But no matter how normal and sensible the lies are made to sound, they are told to keep the problem in place, because the problem serves the state. This is evil.

The way to handle this is to keep exposing the lies and keep telling the truth. Then, as we “Muggles” say, truth will out! Truth is more powerful than lies.

    What the people on many of these sites seem to forget is that when Congress passed a law forbidding felons from owning firearms the death of the 2nd ammendment was started. The Supreme Court then upheld the precident that Congress can wipe the Bill of Rights out with statutes. There is no hope at this point to reverse course.

    Mr. Rhodes, would you please look into this for me? My understanding of the law could be faulty. Thanks for the help.

    That is the absolute truth. One of the questions on the Concealed Carry permit application here in Oklahoma even asks if the applicant has been prescribed any psychotropic medications in the past 3 years. Guess what… if your answer is yes… you don’t get your permit. Pretty stupid qualification really because I’m pretty sure that the typical over medicated, brain fried wacko isn’t gonna bother to get a permit so he can legally carry his firearms to the local elementary school and murder as many children as he can.

    We’ve all heard TV commercials advertising some medication or other telling you that their drugs will make you all better. Then they start listing the side effects. I’m sorry but when a possible side effect is… “may cause suicidal thoughts” I’m pretty much gonna stay away from it. Oh but wait, they cover their asses by adding that if you experience any of these side effects you should contact your doctor immediately. So should they do that before or after they commit mass murder?

    We need to make as much noise about this as possible!

    A wise Police Officer once told me: “Common sense, ……is not common”

    A person steals guns, (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), shoots and kills his own mother (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), transports these guns loaded (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), brings guns onto school property (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), breaks into the school (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), discharges the weapons within city limits (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), murders 26 people (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), and commits suicide (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW).

    And there are people in this country that somehow think passing ANOTHER LAW
    banning guns would protect us from someone like this. If you haven’t noticed, people like this are not concerned about breaking laws – they only care about fulfilling their own twisted agenda.
    The only people that a gun ban law would impact are the LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, which will only serve to cripple the ability to protect ourselves.
    If you agree with this, please re-post.
    If not, read it again and see if it does not make a wee bit of sense.

    It is all about the Power to dominate…

    Limited as are the powers which have been granted, still enough have been granted to constitute a despotism if concentrated in one of the departments….particularly…the Executive branch… The tendency of power to increase itself, particularly when exercised by a single individual…would terminate in virtual monarchy… As long as the love of power is a dominant passion of the human bosom, and as long as the understanding of men can be warped and their affections changed by operations upon their passions and prejudices, so long will the liberties of a people depend on their constant attention to its preservation… The tendencies of all such governments in their decline is to monarchy, and the antagonist principle to liberty there is the spirit of faction – a spirit which assumes the character and in times of great excitement imposes itself upon the people as the genuine spirit of freedom, and, like the false christs whose coming was foretold by the Savior, seeks to, and were it possible would, impose upon the true and most faithful disciples of liberty. It is in periods like this that it behooves the people to be most watchful of those to whom they have entrusted power” (William Henry Harrison, March 4, 1841).

    The most powerful book I have ever read for promoting liberty and saving america is called “The Most Dangerous Superstition” by Larken Rose. Please look into this author and see how powerful it is. If every government employee could read this, we would turn this country around very quick.
