How to Create a Slave Nation in 5 Easy Steps

The United States has served as a handbook on how to effectively enslave a portion of the population. I’m not saying that the United States invented slavery but they sure as hell have perfected their methods since they first abolished slavery in 1863. Below we’ll outline a few steps on how the United States managed to “re-institutionalize” slavery even despite the fact that slavery has been abolished.
Step 1: Change the Name
A slave is someone who is “owned” by someone else and forced to obey them. Another social institution abides by the same rules; Prisons. A prisoner technically is a slave on the basis that he or she is legally “owned by the State” and is forced to obey them for X amount of time.
Some of those who benefitted from slavery prior to 1863 made their transition to the prison industry. In the last 10 to 20 years we have seen an alarming rise in private prison complexes, the highest prison population in the world working at roughly $0.40/hour.
Step 2: Create a Crime
The rise in Prison population is not due to “more crimes being committed” but rather due to the illegalization of human behavior. The drug war has created the perfect excuse to arrest people for merely having drugs. While these people pose no threat on to the rest of society they are still huddled together with the other slav…prisoners to do harsh work without any real benefits.
Most of the prison labor is used to build military equipment and what not.
Step 3: Turn a Nation
In 1937, William Randolph Hearst and his cronies effectively convinced the world that Cannabis was evil. They campaigned until they convinced an entire nation that draconian laws are the only way we can suppress cannabis consumption. Stupidly America agreed and soon their number one cash crop became their ticket to slavery!
Step 4: Declare a War
In 1971 President Nixon declared a War on Drugs. Not only did this so called “war” grant executive powers to the Commander in Chief, but it also effective mobilized the US’s personal “Gestapo” that would go above and beyond the call of duty to arrest as many users, dealers, producers and traffickers as they could regardless of the costs associated; that’s why the tax payers exist right?
Since the war was declared only more drugs are on the streets and cartels are richer than ever which means banks can launder their dirty money for a whole lot of profit.
Step 5: Lie, Lie and then Lie some more
The final step really is sustaining the lie. The Drug War institution needs to spend millions of dollars to maintain America ignorant to the truth. That’s why mainstream media constantly is blasting negative things about cannabis. That’s why every FDA approved marijuana study is only to find the negative effects of the plant. And that is why there is so much resistance to prohibition repeal.
Adolph Hitler once said; “If you tell a big enough lie and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”
In relation to the Drug War this truth cannot be understated and in our current modernized slave system it’s a lie that needs to come to light. Luckily America is waking up to the truth but “when” needs to come sooner than later.
