An interesting propaganda flashback to the 1950s. Notice they say “your contributions will be held in trust” by the government. So where are the funds now? And what happened to the employer contributions? Why aren’t we getting paid those when we retire? It appears from this film that many more jobs were exempt from Social Security. Imagine only having to pay 1.5% of your income to Social Security!

Narrated by Oscar winning actor Morgan Freeman, “Breaking the Taboo” is produced by Sam Branson’s indie Sundog Pictures and Brazilian co-production partner Spray Filmes and was directed by Cosmo Feilding Mellen and Fernando Grostein Andrade. Featuring interviews with several current or former presidents from around the world, such as Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, the film follows The Global Commission on Drug Policy on a mission to break the political taboo over the United States led War on Drugs and expose what it calls the biggest failure of global policy in the last 40 years.

    How is it a failure? The global drug trade is more profitable than ever. It provides employment to thousands of lawyers, judges, prison guards and stupid thug cops who would otherwise never find a job. It’s only a failure for the other 99% who have to pay for it and get caught and chewed up in it. It was never intended to reduce drug use, just the opposite.

    I wrote a research paper in macro economics proving the legitamacy of profits over 25 years ago. It recieved the highest score in the class and the highest score in the school’s history for that assignment. My step mother was right,,, I am 25 years ahead of my time.

    I think this movie is a scam. The facts are that the US could have easily stopped the cocaine trade in Columbia by monitoring the handful of corporations that produced the chemicals used in the process, but conveniently the law only allows these corporations to be checked once, and from then on they can sell as many chemicals to drug cartels as they want. Another fact is that the US troops who became addicted to heroine in Korea were using drugs provided by their own government. All of this information is readily available in refereed articles in any Western university. It is also interesting to see Carter putting his two cents in because he personally used cocaine. Add to this that the Taliban totally destroyed nearly all poppy growth in Afghanistan prior to the most recent US invasion, only retaining a small amount for medicinal use, and the US invasion was what saw the the heroine trade once again flourish. Having said this I find it ludicrous that people are put in jail for smoking marijuana when it is a known medical fact that it has incredible medicinal properties, and after 90 years of prohibition there is still no concrete proof that marijuana causes any danger to its users. Keep in mind that cigarettes are now known to cause cancer, and alcohol is a major concern in respect to domestic violence. For those advocates that scream that marijuana is a gateway drug it should be noted that before people use pot they use cigarettes and alcohol, yet these are legal drugs that the government makes a fortune from in taxes. Another little fact that is being kept quiet is that the CIA, MI5 and MI6 are all involved in drug trafficking to fund their black ops, so they can place their puppet governments in countries to install the International Monetary Fund, which is simply a means of enslaving people through debt slavery. Wake up people, the real criminals are the ones who are running our countries and the people who serve them! The world is run by a crime syndicate and this is why things never get any better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
