Kingdom of Shadows--the aftermath

I spent the last three days watching Bernardo Ruiz’s Kingdom of Shadows at the SXSW movie festival in Austin. I appear in the film, along with a nun from Monterrey, Mexico and an agent from the Department of Homeland Security in El Paso.

After screenings, we took questions from the audience, but sessions were too short to adequately address issues related to the subject matter of the film—the effect of drugs and drug prohibition on our societies.

Watch this movie

Spread the word.

Radio interview

I was the subject of a radio interview with Matt Savinar a week or so ago, just before the release of Kill the Messenger. Some of the subject matter pertains to the work of Gary Webb. Watch here.

For the record

 Sabbath morn.

Your government lies to you and mainstream media serves as a willing outlet to spread those lies.

It’s for that reason I first visited the Agonist and other alternative media sites during the buildup to Iraq 2. I knew the stories we were being fed were bull shit.

No free ride


I seldom venture into the local Wal-Mart store, but yesterday was an exception. Sent to find freezer storage bags unavailable elsewhere, I walked by the clothing section and checked out prices. I was shocked how cheap goods can be had. A nice shirt for $7. Sounds good, no?

Perhaps, unless you’re the poor SOB making that $7 shirt.

Or the local business that wants to manufacture shirts and has to compete with this obscene price.

I hear people say excessive governmental debt is no problem.

Drug wars--a success story


Usually, when I see a reference to drug wars, the word failure appears in the narrative. That would imply that the idea of the war on drugs is to stop the production and useage of illegal drugs.

Not so, says this man.


LS: You are arguing in your book that the war on drugs is no failure at all, but a success. How do you come to that conclusion?

Tip of the hat to Rafael Correa

 Full disclosure: I am not a leftist. Or a rightest.
