I figure its about time to have a place where we can talk about all things drugs and intoxication related. A place where we can talk about anything and everything.
Now, lets truly be open about this.
Lets talk about being high and fkt up. Lets talk while being loaded. The goods; the bads. Lets talk about being loaded, the possibilities, the science and the spirit. The goods and the bads. Lets see what bubbles up.
But Im not particularly thinking toward recovery. One of the things that kinda drives me nuts is the incessant move toward the recovering alcoholic or addict, like getting high is bad, or will always lead to bad things, and not getting loaded is good.
Yet also, Im not saying lets exclude recovery — lets include it. But lets include it in a discussion that includes everything else about intoxication. Lets include everything that has to do with drugs and intoxication. Lets use this space to have all sorts of discussions that have to do with intoxication. See this as a platform, a center, where everyone can talk about all aspects of drugs: chemistry, spirituality, business, mental states, physical states, philosophical states, artistic sites, art, intelligence, cosmic, music, et cetera.
Lets have open discussion about it all.
I know there are people who get high on all sorts of things and like it, who are not addicts, maybe yet, but maybe not yet, who function in their life who use drugs and alcohol normally.
Is everyone getting the picture?
Im thinking honest, introspective, critical discourse of all sorts.
Anyone with me?
Now; I get this space because Im a philosopher, and I think there is more going on than people can or will admit. I think life and all the recesses of discourse — academic, philosophical, scientific , spiritual, whatever else — got drugs and intoxication all in them. I think everyone is influenced by intoxicants but no one talks about it seriously and openly. And I think it is because we have the specter of addiction lingering over our Politically Correct heads. There is nothing wrong with getting sober; I think there is a great social problem around drugs. But there is also nothing wrong with not being sober. Lets get it out in the open where we can all see it, all of it, everything, in the light, our opinions, our knowledges, our critiques, our biases. Lets argue; lets discuss.
How are we ever going to get anywhere if we cannot talk openly, to be able to see as well and confront our biases, biases that probably exist everywhere but are invisible because we can never talk to each other across domains about this world.
Lets have a safe space for an open and unfearful dialogue on drugs and intoxicants, but lets also have a space for unflinching critical dialogue. Im thinking a space where we can speak honestly.
I will post my own stuff as well as others I find.
While I do have my own opinions, I will try to be open minded in unbiased in administering this page. But also, I will probably not want endless ramblings on nonsense; but sometimes nonsense might be contructive.
Lets see what happens.
