This is a simply amazing story of human ingenuity.
Around the world in third world countries citizens are taking trash such as plastic bottles and turning them into usable homes! Apparently these homes are bullet proof, fire proof, and 100% safe. This can go a long way in building sustainable homes for people around the world that do not have access to other resources, or live in an environment surrounded by waste products. Many areas of the world have large collections of trash on the streets and other areas, and using these simple methods may inspire people to build their own homes for a fraction of the cost.
Sadly homelessness is a real condition around the globe, for many there is just not enough shelter in surrounding areas to house all those in distress, such as Africa, and parts of Asia. This however can help many of those in need. Not only does it help decrease our environmental footprint, but helps provide shelter for those in need. And in a world like ours polluted with trash and homelessness this idea can go a long way to helping people.
We’ve all seen it in media, read about it in books, and many of us have even studied it. Prisons are ravaged by corrupt guards, and gangs. With many non-violent criminals being attacked and raped, and endlessly tortured.
There’s gambling, drugs, and many go into prison knowing less about crime then they do when they come out. It is almost like a crime dojo.
So how can we stop it?
By turning Prisons into a Reality Tv Show!
Imagine every inch of our prisons being covered by microphones and cameras. Not only would this deter inmates and prison guards from acting inappropiately, but would also give psychologists the ability to learn more about criminal mentality.
Prisoners will then be incapable of smuggling in drugs, raping individuals, making weapons, and murder and violence will drop signigicantly. It will also stop crime rings that are supported by prison guards and help us learn how well are rehabilitation techniques are working.
With our new found knowlede we will better capable of rehabiliting prisoners, decreasing crime rates. We will learn more about how gangs work inside prisons and possibly even hear testimonials and reports from inmates about whats going on in their local communities.
This action would likely also ensure that less people will commit crimes, by giving our population a peek into the sad life of prison culture. It will also help us catch criminals still on the streets. And help us learn how one actually becomes a criminal.
It’s clear that many people in the United States and many other nations want cannabis to be legalized for medicinal and recreational use. Although there are some undesirable effects of cannabis use; when compared to many legal substances in the U.S. such as Alcohol or Tobacco, it is relatively harmless.
Cannabis is also one of the oldest known medicinal plants in the world dating back thousands of years into the Ayurvedic literature. Hemp seeds are nutritionally exemplary providing protein and beneficial omega fats into one’s diet. Eating Cannabis raw has also shown to decrease heart disease risk, and various other illnesses.
Cannabis use has also shown to help provide pain relief as well as a decrease occurrences of seizures in epileptics, help decrease nausea, help insomnia, and many other benefits.
This has been extremely helpful for many individuals that are injured or have serious medical conditions such as Cancer, Aids, Epilepsy, Insomnia, Arthritis, and many other minor and chronic conditions.
So why would the Government want to stop the production and criminalize the possession of such a beneficial plant? Even though society has already proven its health benefits and variety of uses in industry settings.
It’s all about the money, thats truly what its about. Could you imagine what would happen if Cannabis became legal tomorrow? Think about how many people would lose their jobs.
Lets take a look at the criminal nature of Cannabis.
Most arrests made in the United States are for drug offenses, with over half being related to the possession, sale, cultivation, or trafficking of Cannabis.
For the Executive and Judicial branches of our government this is BIG money.
Some of those who acquire money from these restrictions in this billion dollar industury are Judges, Lawyers, Police Officers, Probation Officers, Drug Dealers and Support Groups on both sides of the legalization of Cannabis.
So if Cannabis was legalized nationwide imagine how many of these individuals woud lose their jobs without a safety net. And how many more people will be out on the streets and not in Prisons looking for jobs.
How many of these individuals would turn to a life of crime, due to their incapacity to find a job? It’s easy to imagine many of them relying on violent crimes, larceny, fraud, and the transportation, production, and sale of harder drugs just to get by.
This in turn would create a endless cycle of hiring and firing of law personel.
This is just one of the reasons why the legalization of Cannabis is taking so long, because our government is not ready to cope ecspecially with our failing financial system.
However many states have done a very good job migrating these effects by only legalizing it for medical use creating new revenue streams for doctors. All while using high taxes to fund new developmental programs for education, health care, agriculture, and renewable energy resource development.
Along with all these benefits the production of medical and recreational Cannabis in itself creates new jobs. Many investors have already jumped at the chance to support the production of Cannabis. In addition organizations such as Grow houses and Cannabis Clubs have sprouted all over the country, creating jobs for growers and sales associates. Even the Government has gotten into it by increasing the need for permits for the development of the infrastructure of Cannabis Clubs and Cultivation Centers.
Now that we’ve taken a look into how the legalization of Cannabis will effect the executive branch let’s take a look at how it will effect industry. It is well known that hemp has thousands of uses in industry.
This has been known for thousands of years and even helped build the infrastructure of many countries. Even in the beginning of America in 1619, The Virginia Company by decree of King James I, required every colonist to grow 100 plants specifically for export.
However the ability to produce Cannabis became very prohibitive in the United States after the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 was enacted. This act however has come under much scrutiny in recent years due to the fact that major supporters of the Act had major holdings in the Timber industry, which may have been threatened by the recent invention of the “decorticator”.
The decorticator allowed the ability to easily extract the fibers from Hemp plants which made Cannabis a viable alternative to timber for the creation of paper, rope, and many other textile products. Popular Mechanics in their February 1938 issue even praised Hemp as the new billion dollar crop that would change industry forever due to the decorticator.
However at the same time many propagandist, racist, yellow journalistic papers and movies were produced that claimed Cannabis made people go crazy, likely to go insane on a killing rampage. Many of these articles and movies have been shown to have been funded by people of interest in corporate holdings of timber and nylon, and new government organizations that focused on earning revenue from criminalizing the production of Cannabis and other substances. While many of these articles and films such as Refer Madness focused on white suburban teens that were once notable citizens going crazy. Many others focused on slandering African Americans, Asian Americans, Mexican Americans implying that they were the major users of the drug and under it’s influence were likely to kill and rape white women.
So how does this relate to today.
Besides much of the propaganda that were taught and reinforced through our life, paper and many textiles are still currently made from Timber. The production and manufacturing of Timber is not only more costly to the environment, but also requires more labor, and is significantly more dangerous.
Hemp also is vastly more versatile when creating clothing as well. Being highly more efficent then producing cotton. This will not only help the environment, but it will help decrease labor, and improve our ability to clothe the world. This will free up land to be used for agricultural needs which can help us feed the starving people of the world.
Hemp has the ability to be turned into cleaning products, food products, construction products. We have hemp seed oil, hemp shampoo, hemp moisturizer, and many other fascinating products. Hemp has so many uses in so many industries and because it is a weed it is one of the most simple, easiest, and fastest plants to grow. Yet all these great things make it “Dangerous to the Status Quo”.
By allowing citizens to grow it, many textile industries will go bankrupt. And of course don’t forget about the pharmaceutical industries; think about all the people that will not have to buy prescription medicines anymore, but instead can grow a plant for pennies on the dollar. So many industries will lose their way of life.
This will decrease stock prices of many Corporations. The same Corporations that are able to afford the lobbying for high end government officials.
Once again many will lose their jobs and citizens will be more capable of producing their own products closer to home.
While many speculative markets will go through a complete revolution and a few stock brokers may lose money, the real ones that will suffer are CEOs.
It’s easy to see the many disadvantages of legalizing cannabis from a certain perspective.
Many current industries will fail, the production of many products will stop. Many people including cops, lawyers, judges, marketers, CEO’s, financial advisers, manufacturing laborers, and countless others will lose their jobs.
Yet lets take a look at the advantages.
Third World countries will be attacked less by governments, and be more capable of producing their own foods and products. Less lifes will be wasted in Prison. Less money will be stolen from friendly productive citizens. Less men and women will be placing their lifes in danger over a failing drug war. We’ll completely destroy giant criminal rings that exponge money from our society.
Well have a product capable of producing thousands of textile products, with a fraction of cost in labor and to the environment. Well have a medicine with less side effects that’s also safer to develop then the many that are being produced.
When more people start growing Cannabis at home, they will be more capable to grow their own food. Decreasing the stress on our agricultural systems, and providing better nutrition for people around the world.
All this together will mean less work for everyone, safer work environments, a cleaner environment, longer lifes.
So we might lose some jobs, but doesn’t that mean less work for our society? Wouldn’t this allow us more time with our family and friends, and more time for education?
While our government is standing the way, “We the People” are the ones that control government.
So if we really want this plant to be legal, arent we the ones responsible to make it so?
So I ask you to ask yourself one question “Whose really standing in the way?”.
This is the 21st century, these rings are outdated and a incredible burden on society.
Not only do they support the death and enslavement of countless mineral miners, but they instill materialistic values, and continue the economic decline of the middle class. There are a great number of diamonds that are mined by underpaid and enslaved work forces, with the upper economic populations taking a large majority of the profits of the trade and sale of diamonds and various other minerals required in making such rings.
Not only is the mining of these minerals disenfranchising the masses, but so is there production. Much of their production is completed in manufacturing zones that are run by underpaid workers, often times this labor is completed by children in sweat shops. This isn’t only the case for the assembly of rings, but the disassembly as well. Old wedding rings and overstocked rings have the bands melted down, often times through environmentally unfriendly means, causing significant loses in materials and significant damage to our ecosystem.
This simple ritual has only lasted so long because of the programming of young minds to adore worldly possessions. Through advertisement young women are expected receive such dowries, for young couples this may impact their economic stability tremendously. Many teens who believe they are ready will take out loans, that they will quickly learn that they cannot pay off. This not only causes them harm, but their family who may have to help cover their charges. This can cause strain on the relationship, between the couple, and the family.
With our current trends in society it is incredibly naive to give away such a lump sum of money for an item that has no useful application; when divorce rates are still at 50%.
These rings hold no merit, except in symbolism. As the sentient beings we are, if we promise to be faithful to each other we should stay true to our word. We should not have to use these rings as symbols for eternal love.
And if through all this you still believe you must prove your love, it would probably be much more productive to just stuff $3,500 dollars into a box and give it to that special someone instead.
Homelessness is a epidemic, it limits our ability as a society to move forward. It’s very important to remember that people do need to take responsibility for their actions, but to always take into account, that our society is the reason that we are facing such problems.
How Do We prevent Homelessness?
We must change the way our society works.
Most people are homeless due to poverty, mental illness, or drug addiction. Many people that are homeless need to be rehabilitated or provided with a job.
While the U.S. government has a system of checks and balances, between its branches. Yet we have failed to set up such a system between corporations, and people.
We have made it harder to receive an education in new fields, while simultaneously lowering worker wages through inflation.
We need to establish working programs, where people are paid livable wages, and provided with health care services that cover them, and their children.
If corporations worked together with the Federal Reserve and Legislative branch, of our governments, we would have higher wages and lower work hours. If there are not enough jobs, to supply people, we could easily lower the average number of working hours, allowing more people to have a job.
Health problems are often a cause and result, of being homeless. Many people who do not have health insurance when faced with an illness in the family can lose their job. The 2007 United States Census Bureau calculated that 45.7 million Americans (15.3% of the population) do not have health insurance.
Those that are incapable of getting of getting high paying jobs are more likely to not have health insurance. Of course, they’re are also more likely to not have a college education, and make poorer health choices for them and their families.
So when they or a family memeber have medical condition they may spend all their money on diagnosis and treatment, and then be left incapable of paying their mortgage, or rent. This family member may be a child, or parent. An estimated 10.5% of American children under the age of six do not have health insurance.
Once a person becomes homeless it is increasingly difficult for them to get a job and due to a lack food, toiletries, they are more likely to get a medical condition.
Yet if we had easier access to jobs, we could have free health diagnostics, before they receive jobs. In this day and age we should have the ability to walk into a worker program and receive a job that day.
Fun Fact: There are more than five times as many vacant homes in the U.S. as there are homeless people, according to Amnesty International USA.
Cannabis is one of the most widely used narcotics of the world. It’s use can be traced back to ancient times, it was most often used as medicine and to achieve trance like states for meditation. Cannabis legalization has been recently spreading throughout the modern world. Many areas that have legalized cannabis have experienced great advances in their infrastructure, noting decreases in crime rates, a decrease for need in law enforcement, lower prison populations, decreased expenditures in the judiciary systems, and an increase of economic stability.
The legalization of cannabis has become a international debate ever sense the beginning of it’s prohibition. Used as a public enemy by the Nixon administration to sway votes for his second term, and to increase funding for the development of various government organizations; it’s prohibition has wrecked havoc on the communities of the world. Because of it’s illegality many underground criminal groups have been established, wasting billions of tax payer dollars on the so called drug war, and destroying and ending the life’s of many innocent individuals.
This prohibition only increases violence and decreases awareness of the true effects of the drug further increasing its dangerous use. Due to its lack of availability it is extremely over priced which causes most users to consume it in it’s most dangerous form “smoking”, although it can be easily used in less dangerous forms such as oils, hash, various edibles, and smoked through vaporizers.
For millenniums society has been controlled by a system of governance that favors the livelihood of a upper economic class and their kin. Many of them believe themselves to be elite based only on the circumstances their of birth. These individuals and their families, poison our waters, food, and minds. These people control our governments, and media purposely turning the general public against itself.
We have fallen under their system of control that devalues human life, and suppresses intelligence. Yet collectively we are strong, and we are destined to take back control of this world; and now is our time to fight for what is rightfully ours. If we don’t take up this challenge, if we don’t push back we will continue to fall under them. Our environment and our world will continue to crumble. They have infiltrated our schools and our homes to decay our minds. We must fight back if we’re going to have a brighter future.
Our Current System
Our current system has changed little throughout history, yet our capacity for change has increased monumentally. Together as a species we can come together and build a brighter future for tomorrow, and dethrone our captors that have held our integrity and ability for growth hostage.
Our system of governance was originally established centuries ago. Many of the ideas were grand and remarkable however throughout the years times of changed. The electoral college was established due to much of our population being incapable of reading and communicating with each other, and for cities to have less control over the vote than rural areas.
Those times are now gone and with them should be the old ways of doing things. While we want to maintain the power maintaining districts gives to localities, and states, the real process we need to change is the power individual voters have when they feel misrepresented by their government representatives.
We Must Fight For Power
No more can we stand by, held hostage as they plan for the end of our life’s and expedite the destruction of our homes. We must stand together; unite and take back our futures. No more can we fight wars to profit the heathens, that care so very little for the future of our life.No more can we let corporations and lobbyists refrain us from doing what’s right.
Only together can we bring a lasting peace that can annihilate the evils that plaque our homes. Only together can this world push through to bounds never before conceived. If we sit idly by our destruction will be imminent, and our minds will be even further enslaved. We must take action now to acquire what is truly meant to be ours.
Get Rid of The Evil in Our Government.
We must get rid of the laws that have been to divide us. Only together can we grow what’s meant to restore us. Our branches of governments have already been breached by the ill minded, legislation is being controlled to confine us. Orders have been given to the executives to destroy us.
All while the Judges have been sentenced to enslave us. If we give all our powers to the destroyers, destruction is all that we will ever know. We must mend our minds and start anew and bring about a peace that can never be destroyed. Only then may we reach a higher state of being. Imagine if we were capable of electing and de-electing public officials online at any moment. How many public officials would be cut for making mistakes and treating there position in office poorly?
Imagine What We Can Achieve.
Imagine if we were capable of getting laws on our yearly ballots all online.
How many laws that would be beneficial to our society would be passed in a single year?
Imagine if us citizens truly had complete control over which legislation was passed in our world.
Our senate would go through a complete overhaul. No longer would we have incompetent officers in the Presidential Cabinet. Elections would be less about slandering and corporate lobbying, and more about the integrity of the candidate and how they plan to help the world.
