"We have a remarkable ability to pervert and to..., I think it was Ludwig von Bertalanffy, one of the founders of general systems theory who said, "people are not machines, but in every situation where they are offered the opportunity to behave like machines, they will so behave."
..and this is the problem of addiction and habit ..and that addiction is merely a special type of habit, and i think we can all agree that habit in all forms kills what we want to bring to flower in life, because as a habit sets in attention can go elsewhere, and then that part of life is somehow on automatic as it becomes a machine like function. So we are now being told that were in a midst of a tremendous political crisis that goes under the banner of the "Drug Problem" but the drug problem is an addiction problem and the addiction is, in my mind, the addiction of intelligence agencies to vast amounts of untraceable money. This is the addiction that drives the global drug problem."
