Pirate's Cove Launches To Avenge Silk Road - by Pirate's Cove
It appears that the forces of tyranny, especially in the USA - will never learn. For every freedom loving information activist they take down, a hundred will spring up.

What's Predictive Policing? - by PrivacySOS
Predictive policing, with roots in business analytics, relies on using advanced technological tools and data analysis to take proactive measures to “pre-empt” crime. Regarded as a refinement of “intelligence-led policing” - which came to the US from the UK where it has led police to focus on research-based approaches rather than responding to service calls - predictive policing appears to take another large step away from community policing and accountability.

The Zombie Drug: are bath salts really the threat we're lead to believe? - by Avan Curran
Media outlets, politicians, and the public seem in consensus that the new designer drugs known as "Bath Salts" are dangerous substances that warrant new legislation. Grizzly attacks which the media has blamed on this new class of drug provide for sensational stories, but are the claims true, or are these simply scare tactics to support a prohibition on the drugs?

Cannabidiol Relieves Psychosis in Schizophrenia, Why Illegal? - by Medical Cannabis for Mental Health
A molecule in cannabis (CBD) has shown to relieve anxiety and symptoms of psychosis in people diagnosed with schizophrenia, though many patients are denied or discouraged from this medicine with fewer side effects than pharmaceutical products because the DEA has deemed the cannabis plant to be "illegal".

I Survived an Assassination Hit on a Real IRA Leader - by By Brian Whelan
The murder of Real IRA leader Alan Ryan by Dublin's drug cartel is a tragedy as Alan stood up for the oppressed and demanded a community tax from the drug gangs. The drug cartels should pay for the damage that they cause in the community and Alan Ryan realized this. From my perspective Alan Ryan is the true martyr in the "war on drugs" who was killed for standing up to bully drug gangs. God bless Alan Ryan for his courage against evil!!

In a victory for free speech on the Internet, social network giant Facebook last week corrected a mistake that had the unfortunate consequence of blocking political speech and affirmed its commitment to serving as a neutral platform for political advocacy. The controversy erupted when the social network, which positions itself as a key platform for reaching “a huge potential voter pool,” rejected ads by Just Say Now and Students for Sensible Drug Policy, drug policy reform groups which b...

The never ending war on drugs and war on terrorism are being used to justify the huge police state security apparatus being assembled.
