    Theone thing history has taught us, that is we never learn from history.

    Indeed, as history teaches us:
    “They got it wrong! We’ll do it better”
    But all we achieve, after all the fuss
    Is another shackle, another fetter

    And part of how this comes about
    Is changing the history that we learn
    Thus we fall without a shout
    We seem to corrupt what we don’t just burn

    So Al’s tormented by what he sees
    He’s just been in that group a short while
    Corruption sets in by degrees
    What horrifies him makes the others smile

    History is doomed to repeat itself. Strip mankind of all the frippery, electronic gadgets, fancy polywhatsis clothing, and cars, etc..and you’ll STILL find creatures whose brains have not advanced since their ancestors were living in caves. When we think no one’s looking we’re afraid of ghosts, knock on wood, and wage war on each other for rights to property and mates. We plan our lives without consistantly using logic, and pick and choose what to believe, when it suits us.

    I wish we could tell Al we’ve evolved, but we haven’t. It will take a genetic mutation before we as a species put down those weapons and find the courage to accept each other as we are. I wonder if Aaron’s preparing to have Endtown tear itself apart…and those darn topsiders are just waiting for Endtowners to make enough noise so they can dig them out.

    IF anyone remembers – there was a sequence before that had LINDA as the head of SECURITY (someting about “ask linda”)

    I’m pleased that the Endtown Examiner has the good taste to publish a proper eight-column broadsheet. Obviously a solid, dependable periodical.

    re: furlips

    Regrettably true.
    .
    Take pot. it was an absolute disaster in terms of human potential during the 23 years it was legal in oregon. most GenX women became hooked on it and frequently other drugs. Accidents on the highways, kids being born with neurological problems, etc. Most kids who were born normal either were raised by their grandparents or by the state. The waste was and is incredible. You can’t make something good just by legalizing it; it still harms the person and everyone around them. The murder rate alone was proof of that. Over a thousand homicides in Portland just in 1995. The health cost alone of so many addicts was astronomical. Many now are virtual invalids, mentally crippled, their personal morals gone completely.
    .
    For a time the lesson was learned.
    .
    But now, a new generation is here, and they want to legalize it again. So we can go through all that again.
    .
    The current carnage should have dissuaded people. Almost all of the 8,000 of 11,000 homicides last year in this nation are due to the drug trade. (If people quit using their drugs, most homicides would be gone completely.) Over 100,000 in mexico each year for the last few years. Canada’s legalization turned the highway 2 miles from my house into a drug highway from mexico. Washington’s legalization made it that much worse. California and Colorado’s legalizations were further windfalls for the mexican cartels. Maybe the body count will be 110 or 130 thousand next year as a result?

    All is as it will be. and it will be better Monday. In the mean time I have to do something about the yodeling goof that inhabits my computer and the tenors singing in my Oxygen generator. Lost all O2 the other night, didn’t know it until the machine started hammering on the floor. Don’t like that feeling . 2 years, I have become attached to it without even thinking. Sigh.
    Blessed Be

    Not exactly. There was a forum thread called “Ask Linda” over at the Endtown Underground. Linda was drawn as wearing some kind of security uniform, but it’s not canon.

    Evil wraps itself in half-true, misleading, and outright fabricated statistics, rational-sounding arguments which are built on a superstructure of lies and distortions. Evil wants control, nothing else. It takes skeptical thinking and a mindset of “is that REALLY true?” to avoid being sucked into the ignorant abyss of the controlled and manipulated. Take Portland, OR, which has a murder rate of 3.4/100,000. Gosh, sounds terrible! Something must be horribly wrong! Oh, wait—the national average is 5.5/100,000m and Portland is slightly below Virginia Beach, VA, and WELL below Arlington, Texas. What to make of that? Nothing, if one is sane, and not attempting to mislead. Certainly not any correlation related to drug legality.

    Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.

    Edmund Burke

    You would think that this sort of thing would not occur until there have been a enough generations between the cause of it all and the present hierarchy to forget what started it all.
    However alas as long as there are enough people to form groups one will always torment the other.
    And so on and so forth peace is not something that can be granted it must be won again and again.
