Behind the Curtain – Blunt Quotes About the War On Drugs

Behind the Curtain - Blunt Quotes About the War On Drugs | Third Monk image 2

Psychedelic culture is full of wisdom and creative figures that show us just how boring the world would be if the recreational use of mind-altering substances did not exist.

As aggressive as the War on Drugs has been throughout the years, it has been no match for geniuses who have smoked and tripped their way over to the other side.


Why is marijuana against the law?

It grows naturally upon our planet.

Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit . . . unnatural?

Bill Hicks

When they talk about drugs, they don’t talk about all of them.

They never mention coffee.

The low end of the speed spectrum, I grant you, but there are coffee freaks.

And they’re walking around, nobody worrying about it.

George Carlin


LSD opened my eyes.

It would mean a whole new world if the politicians would take LSD.

There wouldn’t be any more war or poverty or famine.

Paul McCartney

If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant…….

And if this world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged constitution

Then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth would become paradise.

Aldous Huxley

Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed.

Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use.

– Jimmy Carter

They lie about marijuana.

Tell you pot-smoking makes you unmotivated.


When you’re high, you can do everything you normally do just as well — you just realize that it’s not worth the fucking effort.

There is a difference.

Bill Hicks

Barefoot Gen – Animation by a Survivor of the Hiroshima Atomic Bombing (Video)

Barefoot Gen - Animation by a Survivor of the Hiroshima Atomic Bombing (Video) | Third Monk

In this clip from the Barefoot Gen anime, a survivor gives us an idea of how a flash in the sky brutally changed his world. 

The survivors of the Hiroshima atomic bombing are treated as low-level citizens shunned by the rest of society. Supporters of the bombings argue that Japan deserved it for playing their part in the war. They are condemning the wrong people, innocent people should not be blamed for the actions of their malicious governments.

The intention of the Penny 4 NASA project is to stress the importance of advancing the space frontier and is focused on igniting scientific curiosity in the general public.

Neil deGrasse Tyson – We Stopped Dreaming

Spending Resources in the Wrong Places

I’m tired of saying this but I have to say it again! The NASA budget is 4/10’s of one penny on a tax dollar. If I held up a tax dollar and I cut horizontally into it 4/10’s of 1% of its width, it doesn’t even get you into the ink! SO I WILL NOT ACCEPT A STATEMENT THAT SAYS “WE CAN”T AFFORD IT!”

Do you realize that the 850 billion dollar bank bailout, that sum of money is greater than the entire 50 year running budget of NASA. And so when somebody says we don’t have enough money for the space program I’m asking its not that you don’t have enough money , its that the distribution of money your spending is warped, in some way that your removing the only thing that gives people something to dream about tomorrow, the home of tomorrow, the city of tomorrow, the transportation of tomorrow, all that ended in the 1970’s after we stopped going to the moon, it all ended, we stopped dreaming. So, I worry that the decisions that congress make doesn’t factor in the consequences of those decisions on tomorrow. They’re playing for the quarterly report, they’re playing for the next election cycle and that is mortgaging the actual future of this nation, tomorrows gone.

Neil deGrasse Tyson – A New Perspective

Dissolving Our Artificial Boundaries

Photo of Earth. Rising over the lunar landscape. Earthrise over the moon. There was Earth. Seen not as the mapmaker would have you identify it. No. The countries were not color coded with boundaries. It was seen as nature intended it to be viewed. Oceans. Land. Clouds.

We went to the moon and we discovered Earth! I claim we discovered Earth. For the first time. How does that affect culture? I got a list! The instance that photo comes out, that is the identifying cover picture of the whole Earth catalog. Thinking of Earth as a whole. Not as a place where nations war. As a whole.

I Met the Walrus – John Lennon Blacklisted by the US for Promoting a Peaceful Revolution (Video)

I Met the Walrus - John Lennon Blacklisted by the US for Promoting a Peaceful Revolution (Video) | Third Monk

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview about peace. 

Levitan: John could you please tell us what the situation is with you and your entry into the United States?

Lennon: A lot of people don’t want me in , they think I’m going to cause a violent revolution, which I’m not. And the others don’t want me in because they don’t want me to cause peace either, because war is big business, y’know, and they like war because it keeps them fat and happy. And I’m anti-war so they’re trying to keep me out. But I’ll get in, because they’ll have to own up in public that they’re against peace.

Joe Rogan – Nationalism is Primitive, Society is Funded by War (Video)

Joe Rogan - Nationalism is Primitive, Society is Funded by War (Video) | Third Monk

Joe Rogan delivers an important message about uplifting society to a higher consciousness that can see through the illusions that divide us.

Artificial Boundaries Are Used to Manipulate the Uninformed

We all have this desire to have someone lead us. We all have this feeling where we need someone smarter, wiser to represent us. The problem is really dumb people have a say too and they’re subject to a lot of tricks. They’re subject to nationalism, they’re subject to these ridiculous rah rah America speeches that don’t say jack shit. They say nothing, it’s all just this fucken cheerleading event. They can’t help it, they’re dumb, they don’t know that they’re being bullshited. They grew up with dumb people, they go to work with dumb people, there’s no one in their family that’s interesting or asks any questions at all, and they just get sucked in right into it.

The Sacrifice of Many for the Pleasure of the Few

This society is so greedy, we’re willing to go to war. We’re willing to go places and send these big metal machines that kill people and fuck people up just so we can make more money. And the way our society is set up, I’ve heard it argued, and argued successfully that our society runs on war. It runs on the domination of other parts of the world. Literally, that’s how they control a large chunk of the world, they have to keep everyone down.
