Amphetamines are "power drugs" that reduce
fatigue, heighten aggression, and diminish human warmth and empathy.
When used chronically amphetamines induce stereotyped thought and
behavior rather than creativity. Long-term use of amphetamines often
exacerbates depression. Extended binges on methamphetamine leads to
hallucinations, extreme anxiety and paranoia.
The combination of
hallucinations and feelings of fear and paranoia is known as methamphetamine
Methamphetamine induced psychosis is
caused by methamphetamine's effect on at least three areas of the brain: the
visual cortex, the auditory cortex, and the amygdala.
A large part of
this induced psychosis
is the by product of fatigue, a shutting down of the higher
processes and the lack of dreaming to reset neurons.
Frontal lobes are often
damaged by addiction to methamphetamine.
During World War II
massive amounts of methamphetamines were produced by both the Allies and Axis
John F. Kennedy and Adolf Hitler both received daily injections
Adolf Hitler's Wehrmacht distributed
methamphetamine tablets to German fighting troops throughout World War II as
did the US Army Air Forces.
The Japanese used methamphetamine to help
the teen age suicide bombers (kamikaze) to complete their airplane flights to
their intended American warship targets.
After World War II there were
huge stockpiles of methamphetamines left in many countries, especially in Japan
and throughout northern Europe.
In the late 1940s and early 1950s, a
huge surge in methamphetamine abuse was noted in Scandinavia and Japan
following the dumping of these methamphetamine stocks onto the civilian market.
"In my time I have seen desperate heroin addicts, unable to find a
workable vein to shoot their next fix and suffering from liver disease and God
knows what else, recover physically 100% and go on to lead relatively decent
lives. Stimulant abusers, too, can make remarkable physical recoveries
although, in truth, it's much more difficult than recovering from heroin." -

"Patients are no longer just taking medications in

Vyvanse®, an amphetamine, and Concerta® were introduced in 2008 for
treating adults. Students are taking the drugs to increase academic
performance, and professionals such as doctors and lawyers are taking
stimulants in hopes of boosting their productivity. These drugs have therefore
become increasingly popular. According to a 2007 study, prescriptions for ADHD

Neuropsychopharmacology, earned more than $2.8 million in consulting

for a five-year $3.9 million grant financed by the
National Institute of Mental

From 2000 through 2006, Charles B. Nemeroff earned more than $960,000 from

Joseph Biederman*, a renowned child psychiatrist at
Harvard Medical School, and a
colleague, Dr. Timothy E. Wilens, reported earning several hundred thousand
dollars each in consulting fees from pharmaceutical manufactures from 2000 to 2007,
when in fact they had earned at least $1.6 million each.
2007 Biederman is ranked as the second highest producer of
high-impact papers in
overall throughout the world with 235 papers cited a total of 7048 times over
the past 10 years as determined by the Institute for Scientific
Information (ISI). The same organization ranked Dr. Biederman at #1 in
terms of total citations to his papers published on ADD/ADHD in the past

Trammell, one of the attorneys. "God," Biederman responded. "Did you say God?"
Trammell asked. "Yeah," said Biederman.
The transcripts of this
deposition call into question the mental state of the psychiatrist himself. It
seems the good doctor is showing symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder
(NPD), which, according to the Mayo Clinic, is a mental disorder in which
people have an inflated sense of their own importance. They believe they are
superior to others, but in reality, they are masking their own

psychiatrist Joseph Biederman is under investigation for failing to disclose
much of $US1.6 million he received from drug companies between 2000 and 2007.
The draft guidelines governing Australian use of the drugs refer to Dr
Biederman's research more than 50 times. Dr Biederman has been credited with
helping to fuel a worldwide spike in the use of ADHD medicines in children. In
Australia, more than 420,000 prescriptions are written each year for ADHD
medicines, which are part of the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. In
2007, about 60,000 patients were on ADHD drugs, about 47,000 of those being
children. Despite the explosion in prescription of ADHD drugs, such as
Ritalin®, there are no current guidelines for their use. The former
guidelines, written in 1997, were scrapped four years ago as new drugs and
research had become available. The Howard government appointed the Royal
Australasian College of Physicians to draft new guidelines at a cost of
$135,000. But last year it was revealed that seven of the 10 people in charge
of drafting the guidelines had financial links to ADHD drug manufacturers such
as Novartis, which
manufactures Ritalin®." - Nicola Berkovic, November 24,

Marquez describes perfectly the psychosis experienced by a methamphetamine user
in his story about the insomnia plague.
The excess and continual use
of methamphetamine while not necessarily causing excessive memory loss causes
the human brain to run in a cyclic pattern of thought, like a viynl record
stuck in a groove, that cycles back upon itself repeatedly interjected with
functions no longer work.
After many hours of wakefulness the
methamphetamine user is about as close to
the zombies portrayed in horror
movies as all higher brain functions cease. Chronic methamphetamine use
could be called a form of insanity.
This is the fate of the user of
methamphetamine when the drug becomes so pervasive that it consumes the
methamphetamine users life.

website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its
author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside
personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from
reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate
cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on
the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate
religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious
ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The
Truth of the Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires
no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings
and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal
relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of
reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the
human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in
detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to
their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to
reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international
corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate
cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide,
the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the
collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction
of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does
not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a perfect
world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
