Victimless Crime File: Pot Smoking Anarchist Casey Brezik Tries to Kill Community College Dean

Casey Brezik Gets Stoned and Stabby

Casey Brezik is, by all accounts, a troubled and angry man. His most recent act of violence came today when the self-described anarchist donned a ballistic vest and attacked Penn Valley Community College Dean of Instruction Al Dimmitt Jr with a knife, sending the man to a hospital with a slit throat. The dean was attending an event at which Missouri Governor Jay Nixon was scheduled to speak.

Authorities have voiced suspicions that Brezik may have been targeting the governor. However Brezik was high so he may have simply attacked the wrong man by mistake:

Kansas City police were investigating whether the attack was originally intended for Nixon because of the bullet-resistant vest and Brezik’s political views, including recent rants on his Facebook page.

About an hour before the stabbing, Brezik posted an update that said: “Pharaoh let my people go! We have but two options.” In earlier postings, he referred to himself as a radical and posted several updates challenging people to take a stand, including being willing to “lay your life on the line.”


Before the attack, the suspect had walked into a large room with multiple computer labs where the press conference was to be held “acting crazy,” one witness said. He briefly grabbed the microphone and said “Check, check, check” and “Can you hear me?” before leaving the area near the podium.

An administrative assistant at the college saw the suspect acting suspiciously, moving slowly around the computer room and playing with a butterfly knife in his left hand. Another witness said the suspect was pacing back and forth.

The assistant told Dimmitt that they should notify security. They believed the suspect overheard them and when Dimmitt left the room to call security, the suspect charged at him in a “full sprint,” police said.

At which point he stabbed the dean several times and was wrestled to the ground by bystanders. The dean’s wounds were luckily not life threatening.

Brezik was reported to have been covered in “demonic” tattoos and to have scribbled a strange symbol on one of the schools walls. Some sources claim that the “demonic” symbols and tattoos were anarchist signs.

This was also not his first rodeo. He was arrested at the G-20 meetings earlier this year, something he proudly wrote about on his Facebook page:

Brezik’s Facebook page paints a portrait of an angry man. He had 26 friends and bragged in June about being the first person arrested at the G-20 Summit.

“Crossed the security fence. Ran from the cops. Was tackled. Spit on an officer. Was arrested, charged, and deported. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED,” he wrote.

For that Brezik spent two days in jail and got ten days (?!?) probation for assaulting a police officer. Had Canada taken his assault of a police officer more seriously today’s violence may not have happened.

Brezik’s devolution began much earlier however. His family reported him missing in March 2009 and he was listed as an endangered missing adult, which means he may have had mental health issues. Marijuana use is known to exacerbate existing mental problems.

It’s easy to blame Casey Brezik’s left wing politics for this violence, but the truth is that these traveling “radicals” are a drug culture and Casey Brezik was a user. The May Day riot in Asheville was another example of these “anarchists” getting high and running wild and the truth about anarchism is that troubled souls who self-medicate and drug addicts are 90% of that movement.

One thing I want to point out here is that marijuana played a significant roll in Brezik’s lifestyle and ultimately his crime. He was high when he tried to murder an innocent person and had more weed on him, suggesting that he planned on getting high again. Would he have tried to kill someone without pot? Maybe. But we know that if pot was legal this crime still would have happened and Brezik’s access to pot facilitated his insanity. This is not a victimless crime.

    “Greenville Dragnet is dedicated to covering crime news in Greenville County, South Carolina.”

    So, what does this article have to do with Greenville, SC? I’m a student at Penn Valley who knew Casey. He is a deeply troubled young man who may have schizophrenia but is not receiving treatment for it. I don’t appreciate you using this to promote your agenda against ‘pot smoking anarchists’ whatever the hell that is.

    I’ve also heard he was a ‘Jihadist’ from other bloggers with whatever political views. He can’t be be both and in truth he was neither. A disturbed young man who never received help? Absolutely. And now he never will, he’ll spend the rest of his life in prison. I’m not defending what Casey has done, I’m calling you on how you’d like to spin it.

    Stick to what you know. Stick to Greenville.

  2. Rob Taylor on September 15th, 2010 2:06 am

    A) He was an anarchist, I saw his own writings online in that regard.

    B) He was high when he was caught and had pot on him, thus his drug use was a part of the story.

    C) If you knew and cared about him you’d have helped him.

    D) He’s not the victim here, that person WHOSE THROAT HE SLIT is the victim. Grow up douche.

    E) Like all crime blogs I cover National Crime News that is of interest. A couple of counties over Black Bloc cells have rioted just recently and here in Greenville people of the same ideological bent have stabbed a policeman.

    I don’t know or care why your friends degeneracy being commented on bothers you, but if you were his friend I say you probably gave him the weed he was smoking. His family put up flyers looking for him and he had just been arrested and you did … what? Smoke up with him?

    I just hope when he gets out in 5-10 he crashes with you, since you care so much about him.

  3. sara on September 15th, 2010 12:42 pm

  4. Fellow Classmate on September 15th, 2010 2:15 pm

    I first met Casey Brezik in August, on the first day of school at Penn valley. He was in my Inroduction to State and Local Politics class. Generally, for the first 30 minutes of class or so we discuss the news and political philosophy before the instructor gives the lecture. I got to hear quite a few of his views and he was always coherent and never seemed to be intoxicated. I even talked to him after class a few times and he never seemed like he would resort to physical violence. However, having said all of that, this young man is a political extremist. Many who hold extreme views are completely drug free. To blame this on a drug as mild and as common as marijuana is nothing short of laughable. Did the Unibomber or Timothy McVeigh, or Muhamad Atta all do drugs to? Of course not, but they all had views that can’t best be described as fringe. Extreme views are extreme views, regardless of what culture your in. Brezik believes the government planted explosives to break the levees during hurricane Katrina. He belies that capitalism is inherently evil and that the Lincoln Memorial is a Masonic temple. He had no respect for or understanding of the Founders or Framers. As someone who knew Brezik I 100% attribute his actions to his view of the world. This viewpoint is not a product of, “drug culture,” as you call it, but from where he got his info from that shaped his views. In the Age of Information we can’t loose sight of the fact that many opinions, such as your’s in this article, can easily be misconstrued as fact.

  5. Rob Taylor on September 15th, 2010 2:32 pm

    The Unibomber, McVeigh and even Atta did have histories of drug use, as did the 19 highjackers on 9/11.

    Studies show that people who are mentally ill have their conditions worsened by marijuana use and chronic or heavy users express symptoms mincing mental illness … which is why you smoke it. If pot was “mild” you wouldn’t use it.

    But if you really read what I wrote you’ll see that I blame the drug culture, not just the drug. You got high, knew him and that he was getting out of control, and thought it was fine. That’s the drug culture. Did you alert anyone to his crazyness?

    If you did, wouldn’t this whole thing have been avoided.

    Also part of the drug culture, a man almost lost his life and you’re making jokes referencing a viral video? That you don’t have a decent person’s ability to not make light of a man getting stabbed by a mentally ill person you yourself could have tried to help but didn’t is due to drug use.

  6. Nasir on September 15th, 2010 6:23 pm

    Hey Rob Taylor, You are an fucking asshole for that title. What does smoking pot have to do with this incident? Yes, this was a terrible thing that happened and i would never wish it on anyone but how dare you blame the “Drug Culture” as you put it, for the reason this happened? and no i am not condoning drugs but it seems like you had alterior motive in writing this article and blaming drugs instead of blaming the person. and post these so called studies you say you’ve read on mental illness and marijuana. so in other words you’re saying that a person on lsd is less likely to behave like this then a person on marijuana? get real my friend….

  7. Rob Taylor on September 15th, 2010 6:54 pm

    You do take drugs, which is especially apparent since I explain how I relate this to the drug culture. You missed it between tokes I guess.

    Hey if pot’s so harmless why are you as angry as a heroin addict who has had their stash taken? Drug use has re-wired your brain to such an extent that criticism of drug users by someone you don’t even know actually makes you angry.

    Is that normal? Or should I say NORML? When you’re sober you’ll get that.

  8. greenvillesucks on September 15th, 2010 7:34 pm

    Oh and a person who doesn’t get their coffee or cigarettes acts the same way, yet you see no problem with that. Or maybe you do? I won’t put words in your mouth, thats your tactic. If you do your probably won of these authoritarian pukes who sees no correlation between economic and civil liberties. For your information the last post was from a different user. You deleted mine becomes you can’t handle honest debate. This is why you use so much rhetoric to make your points. It’s easier to disguise the truth with clever language instead owning up to the holes in your arguments. Oh and as a veteran of operation of Iraqi Freedom, I truly resent your outlandish allegations against myself or anyone who disagrees with you. If thousands of our young servicemen can put their live’s for people who both agree and disagree with them surely you can attempt to win an argument without your, “guess & slander” strategy.

  9. Rob Taylor on September 15th, 2010 7:46 pm

    I deleted your last post because it was in all caps, actually.

    But as for the rest, you’re clearly high NOW. I’m authoritarian for pointing out that a person who was high and had more drugs on him to use later probably came up with his hair brained scheme while high?

    It’s not an honest debate to point out that studies indicate mentally ill people (and Casey had a troubled history) are adversely effected by drug use?

    There’s an “economic” issue in you and your friends crying over people judging you for how you behave? Adults who get high suck, almost as much as supposed veterans who post anonymously under different names from the same IP address.

    I don’t even know what your argument is except that someone criticizing pot smoking sets you off, which seems to me to indicate that maybe you should look at where you are in life.

    You should probably learn the meaning of the words rhetoric, slander and correlation.

    Also, I’ve never seen a smoker or coffee drinker stab someone or growl at people or whatever. I don’t get what you’re saying there at all. Are you claiming people who don’t get a cigarette turn violent? because I quit smoking five years ago and I didn’t try to murder anyone.

  10. greenvillesucks on September 15th, 2010 8:32 pm

    Hair brained scheme? What is this the 30′s?

    I think your high. From now on I’m just going to assume that you are , on meth, as your in the south.(I figure this is how you reason so I might as well too)

    There you go assuming again. I’m in support of economic liberties, but obviously you don’t know the definition of many collegiate level words. Then again you are probably sucking on that glass dick high on meth so I won’t fault you.

    Its not an honest debate when you accuse me of using more than the two users names I have. I had to because you blocked my previous address, as I couldn’t post.

    Look guy, I found this post by searching for more information on the story. Within less than 48 hours of the events that took place at my school yesterday, I come across ONE story on the whole internet that is using it as a way to blame this on marijuana. I knew the guy, briefly, but at least I’m not talking out my ass, as you are doing. You keep referring to him, “Casey had a troubled history,” like he lived down the street from you. The only thing you know about this story is what you read online, thats all you the facts you have, I’ve talked to eye witnesses!!!

    I know the definitions of every word I have posted, and unlike you know how to use apostrophes. In addition to that your post are laden with logical fallacies that I have pointed out. I really hope the education system in your state isn’t as broke as you make it look.

    You refute my claim that Atta, McVeigh, etc had all tried drugs. This maybe true, but I didn’t think you would make me point out John Wilkes Boothe, Lee Harvey Oswald and many other assassins/mass murderers have been drug free.

    I have seen people act extremely negative under the use of Alcohol which is currently legal. Maybe we should ban that too….oh wait we tried, what happened there again? I could of swore it ended with prohibition being repealed. Next time I’ll remember to break it down Barney style before hand, so you won’t have to do anymore of that tough “critical thinking.”

    Take a college class it might help.

  11. Rob Taylor on September 15th, 2010 9:40 pm

    How exactly would you know that Boothe and Oswald were drug free?

    I have a Masters by the way, what’s yours in? Oh, don’t bother, you’re a community college student, or as educated people call it 13th grade.

    Look, why are you angry? Because I criticized drug use. Why does that make you angry? Because you’re a chronic user and you know what I’m saying is true.

    I have not called for prohibition, I am not interested in legalization one way or another. I am interested in honesty. I don’t drink or do drug. I have done both. I say it’s bad for you, mentally, morally and physically. Your argument to that is to anonymously post enraged tirades on the Internet.

    I think that proves my point.

    I’d remind you that you’re very first comment was an obnoxious screed, your second was an unreadable all caps tirade and now you’re carrying on about “honest debate” as if we’re in some civil discussion. Get this through your drug haze.

    Not interested. I have dozens of Victimless Crime Files on the web and stand by them I do not need to “prove” to you my opinion is correct. I blog under my real name (unlike cowards) and think I have a little more credibility than someone who won’t put their name to this nonsense, I assume because you’d be too embarrassed by it.

    Get lost.

  12. Loup Garou on September 17th, 2010 10:47 am

    hey “Greenville sucks” it’s the internet, it’s like a TV…. change the channel if you don’t like what’s on. Rob, I agree, they doth protest too much. another thing, all this “I knew him and he was ok.. blah blah blah” WTF? I also would like to know why one of this guys “friends” didn’t do the right thing and turn him in, for his own good of course, instead of sitting around smoking dope with him and laughing at his impersonation of a raving lunatic… well in hind sight I guess he wasn’t doing and impersonation… never the less, it was a cry for help that “friends” didn’t hear.

  13. e.s. schlueter on September 17th, 2010 1:49 pm

    Loup: I did try to explain that I tried to help him, but Rob deleted my post, and he’ll probably delete this one.
    I don’t use drugs and I agree with Mr. Taylor that drug use is not a victimless crime. But Juarez, Mexico is a better example of that argument than a paranoid schizophrenic would have snapped regardless of drug use.

  14. Rob Taylor on September 17th, 2010 2:15 pm

    Schuleter – I keep deleting your posts to prove a point about pot smokers.

    Your assumption is that your comments will be deleted, however this is, what, the 6th IP addres your posting from? To argue that I want prohibition (hwhich I never said) and bunch of nonsense? Does this seem rational?

    I knew that by deleting your posts you would, like Brezik, devolve. How much time have you spent in the last two days changing IPs and posting insults to some guy you don’t know under assumed names? Is this rational?

    Your drug use has literally re-wired your brain to the point that even when you expect me to put your comments into spam you’re investing your entire life into making more. Some of them I deleted by the way because of the thinly veiled threats – I was doing you a favor – but regardless even a red-eyed Doritos eater like you can see that this is madness when you think about it.

    Why the anger? Because I’m pro-sobriety? Why no outrage over the dean of your school being stabbed? Because you’re incapable of normal empathy and devoid of morality?

    That’s my point about the drug culture, it produces people like you. You’re going to come back here for week no doubt, even though you claim to be so productive (though since you can post at any time of the day or night I assume you’re actually unemployed) having what is basically an argument with yourself. The drugs you take make you that person. Don’t believe me? Why not tr being sober for a month? Oh, that’s right you can’t because your entire identity and social life is tied into getting high, which is why criticism of drug use sets you off.

    Get a job or something.

  15. e.s. schlueter on September 17th, 2010 9:08 pm

    I’ve used my real name on every post and like I’ve stated, I don’t use drugs.

    I think you understood my point well and the only entities threatened are your misinformed beliefs and credibility. Go ahead and delete this one too, it makes no difference to me. It’s obvious you are incapable of having a responsible, adult conversation about anything.

  16. Rob Taylor on September 17th, 2010 9:29 pm

    A) No you used several different names to post including mine.

    B) You do use drugs.

    C) It does clearly make a difference to you …

    And that’s the point. Why are you invested in this? Because your drug use has made you incapable of acting like a normal person.

    You think that it’s irresponsible and childish of me to delete rambling, lie filled comments that call me names? How entitled you must feel, which again is the point about the drug culture.

    You care more about turning this conversation into some sort of NORML rally than about a man who almost died at the hands of a person you no doubt got high with.

    But everyone else is wrong. Sure. Makes sense.

  17. JIM on September 18th, 2010 11:44 am

    Where is all the news attention to this radical nut job?????

  18. Ajax the Great on September 20th, 2010 9:30 am

    Rob, please tell me why you have such an axe to grind against cannabis. You seem to conflate correlation with causation, assuming causation every time the police find cannabis in the apartment or on the person of a perp. The man was a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic with a long history of drug abuse. How do you know he wasn’t on anything else, or that his ganja wasn’t laced with PCP or something? How do you know he was even high at all?

    Now, if they found beer in the fridge, or a pack of Marlboros in his pocket, that would be unremarkable because they are both legal drugs. But remember that alcohol has been linked to about two-thirds of all homicides, 80-90% of rapes, and nearly half of all assaults. Alcohol psychosis is a real phenomenon, and there are many people with schizophrenia that are normally gentle, but give them a few shots of whiskey and watch out! And I have never met a single sociopath that was not a current or former user of tobacco (the only one I ever heard of was a meth freak by the name of Adolf Hitler, but he began his killing spree of millions long before ever doing any drugs). The vast majority of people with schizophrenia smoke cigs, and their smoking usually predated the onset of their illness. Not to say causality of course, but I can make the same fallacious argument that you make about cannabis. Also, please Google “caffeine psychosis” and learn about a man who used his car as a weapon against two pedestrians while hopped up on Starbucks, and another man who allegedly murdered his wife by strangulation while under the influence of large amounts of caffeine and sleep deprivation.

    Also, what exactly did you get your degree in?

  19. Rob Taylor on September 20th, 2010 2:01 pm

    A) Googling for information is why you vomit out so much nonsense. “caffeine psychosis” is a bogus defense some lawyer used to get a scumbag off the hook, like the twinkie defense. For someone who argues pot is harmless you sure believe that other substances change behavior

    B) I have a B.A. in Comparative Religion and a Master’s of Liberal Arts in … Liberal Arts. What’s yours in?

    C) If you believe drunks commit a lot of crimes why are you crying about the idea that people who are high are just as criminal?

    D) I wish you kids would learn how to make that correlation argument.

    I think the better question is this – why does criticism of people getting high bother you so much?

  20. Ajax the Great on September 20th, 2010 2:22 pm


    A) How do you get your news stories then?
    I am simply showing you how the same faulty logic you use to demonize cannabis can be used for caffeine and numerous other things. Post hoc ergo propter hoc is a logical fallacy. Ditto for the ad hominem attacks you routinely make about anyone who disagrees with your hatred of cannabis. You also keep shifting the burden of proof and moving the goalposts. Also, I never said that cannabis (or any other substance) is completely harmless.

    B) I have a B.A. in Chemistry and I am currently working on my Ph.D. in the same. I am a scientist.

    C) I am pointing out the hypocrisy of automatically assuming that pot causes anything bad that happens in a case when it is found or mentioned, while giving booze a free pass. You point out a few aberrations and generalize it to all cannabis users (another fallacy). The vast majority of cannabis users are not criminals aside from the fact that their substance of choice is illegal. Scientific studies since the 1940s have shown that cannabis is more likely to decrease aggression/violence than increase it.

    And you STILL didn’t answer my question as to why you have such an axe to grind against cannabis. Why does it bother you so much when people use that particular substance?

    But thanks for not deleting or blocking my comments this time. I really appreciate it.

  21. Rob Taylor on September 20th, 2010 2:32 pm

    Your A) refers to a completely different conversation that I’ve never had with you. Sober up.

    B) If you’re a “scientist (unemployed0 then you are familiar with the 30 years of research into the harmful effects of chronic or heavy use. Why are you crying over this. You’d also be familiar with the studies that show heavy users mimic symptoms of schizophrenia, mentally ill people have their conditions worsened by marijuana ingestion and that all users suffer paranoia, which can lead to violence.

    C) When did I give “booze” a free pass? I don’t drink so yelp about drinking to someone who cares.

    I didn’t block you this time because although you were still rude you weren’t hysterical. But again I’ll point out that the fixation of trying to get me to tell you that pot smoking is OK says something about where you are.

    Why are you not only posting dozens of comments on the blog of a person you have claimed more than once to be beneath you but waiting around for me to respond? Is that rational or has drug use actually altered how you perceive productive behavior?

    My ax to grind is that people like you act as if drug use is harmless if it’s the drug you enjoy. It isn’t.

  22. Ajax the Great on September 20th, 2010 3:02 pm


    A) Please quit the ad hominem attacks already, assuming that I am under the influence of something. I am talking about the exact same conversation here.

    B) Have you seen all the scientific studies out there that contradict those claims? There are plenty, please educate yourself before tarring all cannabis users and their allies with the same filthy brush.

    C) You don’t espouse the same knee-jerk hatred of drinkers like you do for cannabis smokers.

    D) I never said you were beneath me, only that your logic was flawed.

    E) Again, I never said that cannabis was completely harmless, just that it is presumptuous and unfounded to make the knee-jerk claim that it causes violence. Your axe to grind has to go deeper than that I’m afraid. You repeatedly state or imply that all cannabis users are filthy degenerates, which is not true. Were you personally a victim of some sort of crime that you believe had some connection to cannabis? It reminds me of Axl Rose’s homophobia–take a look at the things he was a victim of.

    F) I am well aware that there are irresponsible ways to use any substance. But that does not mean that all cannabis use is inherently irresponsible, anymore than it means that all drinking is irresponsible.

  23. Rob Taylor on September 20th, 2010 3:23 pm

    Not what ad hominem means.

    Send me the studies that contradict the studies showing the negative effects of chronic or heavy cannabis use, and not the ones from NORML. Also cannabis users and their allies is a nice euphemism that makes it sound like your victims. What you mean is stoners and dealer and the 50-year-old Libertarians who pay for sex in weed, right?

    I’ve never said I hated anyone, which again shows that you’re emotionally invested in this in an inappropriate way. I do dislike drinkers if you must know, but there are no movements that put forward the idea that people who spend their days getting drunk are not hurting themselves and others.

    Your attitude and demeanor was and is contemptuous and started out that way after reading a post. That means you think I’m beneath you.

    I’ve never said all cannibis users were filthy degenerates, I’ve said anyone who isn’t a teen who needs to get drunk or high is emotionally stunted and that weed does indeed effect the perceptions and behavior of users in the short ad long term.

    Implying that my pro-sobriety stance is like homophobia is hysterics at it’s most basic.

    Your finally argument is addicts logic. All pot smoking is very much irresponsible because you’re running the risk of arrest to get high when you can get high legally. Why not work for legalization then get high?

    Don’t answer, like I said, I’m in the middle of something.You’ve spent all day on this and for what? My views will not change. What exactly do you want?

  24. Ajax the Great on September 20th, 2010 5:21 pm

    What I want is liberty and justice for all. And there is no sense arguing with you anymore. I’m off my soapbox for now. Peace.

  25. susan whittington on September 27th, 2010 5:22 pm

    I’m so confused reading all the entries about Casey and the rants that have taken place. Do any of you check your spelling and usage of words like to, too, two, and let’s not forget, your and you’re. If everyone is in college, how did you pass basic English?

  26. Rob Taylor on September 27th, 2010 8:56 pm

    Wow, great point.

    It’s unreal to see grammatical errors in comments on blogs. Thanks for pointing out that cretin, I mean educated people, pay more attention to grammar than content on the Internet. Also thanks for pointing out that intelligent people can’t understand a sentence with with spelling or grammar errors in it.

    By the way, no one takes “basic English” in college. And most papers in college are spell and grammar checked in word processing documents, while a comment should only take you a minute or two to rub out, like yours did.

    what an effed up headline. Anarchism has nothing to do with slitting people in the throat… nor does the use of cannabis. WTF are YOU on?

    Are you sure? What evidence is there?

  33. Onmiyogi on January 24th, 2011 4:56 pm

    I really think you should do a little research on what “anarchist” means.
    It does not mean someone who swings from one belief system to another from one microsecond to the next.
    From a quick reading of limited writings I would say that his cannabis use played little in his mental problems. It did not improve his mental state, that is true; but it did not exacerbate the problem either.
    I am not a professional in this kind of thing but he seemsto present as someone with a “schizotypal personality disorder”. From the way he wanders off point I might also throw in “bipolar”; but in his case I feel the older name for the condition, manic-depressive, is more appropriate.
    Again I suggest you look them up before further comment.

    Maybe you should read the reports, because his family already had him diagnosed and were seeking to get him back in treatment. The Anarchist community sheltered him, allowing him to couch surf and transporting him to the G-20 protests where he was arrested.

    But yeah, I guess I should take your opinion to heart.

    A little bit of knowledge is dangerous. One thing we know for sure is addiction to any number of legal or illegal drugs and other addictions, surely requires alot of rationalizing, which seems to be the case here with other users of marijuana.

    Thousands of people and kids die each year because they are told by peers that drugs and alcohol won’t harm them, but what the peers and the individuals don’t know is the interaction between the drug and other prescription drugs they might be taking, or their own bodies and minds, susceptiblility to sugar, marijuana, meth etc. The biological makeups that exaserbate or shut down the functions of the brain capable of reasoning, conscience and discerning reality. A paranoid skitzo personality type will stop taking medication due to the paranoia that tells him the drugs or doctor are trying to kill him. To rationalize or intellectualize that drugs don’t counteract or interact with existing conditions or other more powerful drugs given for pschotic or hallucinogenic or biological illness, is to ignore years of medical and chemistry history and science. Smokers would argue cigerettes weren’t addictive for years and be supported by the manufacturers. Valium was non harmful and non addictive. The list goes on, but individuals need to ask what makes a non violent skizo, manic depressive or paranoid individual go off the deep end and follow through on delusions? Killing the messengers or intellectualizing one aspect of a problem has never increased knowledge or solved scientific problems.

    One visit to a shrink can get you a dianosis for Social Security Disability pay, but it is not treatment, nor is there anyway of forcing someone to continue treatment for mental disorders, once diagnosed or after the age of 18. I can show you more stats on how drugs affect your brain than you can show me that “treatment or rehabilitation” works or is proven to be a cure. Rob Taylor’s experience is probably as worthy of acknowledging, as all the “quick reads” and definitions of illnesses that are used as arguments here.

    american indians had the best society. cash free.
    money gives a reason for crime, drugs, abortion, addictions. a cash free society would eliminate criminal behavior. there would be no need for many of our treasured institution e.g. banks. everybody would be equal. you get what you need. no charge.
    everybody has a job. families with children under 18 would have a mother that worked at home doing family things. there would be 0 billionaires. only JESUS could set this up during the 2nd coming. many people who love money will be raptured. one day you will see.

    “the truth about anarchism is that troubled souls who self-medicate and drug addicts are 90% of that movement.” LOL what?

    “the truth about Greenville Dragnet is that they make up bizarre statistics about people they don’t like and repeat them like they’re facts.”
