Certain noxious ideologies just refuse to die, and still, those crazy beliefs continue to spit out some kernel of truth.

Elites condemn them, yet they also greatly believe in them – and even practice some of their sinister arts. The regular people will embrace the ideological hodgepodge for the simple solutions to their hard lives. Meanwhile, these false faiths slowly strangle the last remaining decency from our putrid lives.

Racialism-Eugenics is one such ideology that will probably never fully die in the modern world. The reason is that its origins lie at the excrement of the European colonial empires who had created this dastardly mess, some five hundred years ago.

The first colonial monsters and empires represented the Spanish and the Portuguese invaders. Many racialists like to quote from the founders of modern eugenics, polygenism, craniometry and phrenology, (structural brain differences), but modern racial sciences and eugenics actually birthed from the lies of bad Catholic Christianity.

On the Iberian peninsula during the late 1400s, or the fifteenth-century, the Aragonese, Castilian and Portuguese empires were finishing their ‘reconquests.’ What was this conquest truly about? The Catholic Church ordered a Crusade, or cruzada, against the Muslim invaders of the peninsula, which had taken place during the second decade of the 8th century A.D.

A religious war was in full operation, and not just against the Muslims, or moros, but also against all forms of Christian heresy, called herejes, such as Gnostic Christian churches, and there was also a war against the large Jewish communities found in most cities and towns in the peninsula, called juderías.

As the Christians, representing the Castilians, Aragonese and Portuguese, began to expel the religious enemies of the Church from the peninsula, the royal courts began issuing more restrictive laws and decrees against the religious enemies that stayed within the Iberian peninsula. All the religious communities, meaning the Christians, Muslims and Jews had lived within their own communities, or ghettos. This spatial segregation was already clear even within the Muslim cities on the peninsula.

When the Christians decided to siege an ‘enemy combatant’ city and took it, called toma, the Christian knights usually murdered a bunch of religious enemies unfortunate enough to walk the public streets, and then they turned the main mosque into a cathedral church. They soon forced the religious groups to stay within their own walled communities. Not only did the religious adversaries have to return to their districts at night, but they had to wear distinctive clothes and symbols sown on their outfits, even hats. They lost certain rights, called fueros, such as prohibitions from carrying swords in public, riding horses, attending universities, and the payment of certain taxes. The royal courts hoped these prohibitions would force the Jews and Muslims to convert to Christianity – or leave.

Many adherents did convert publicly to Christianity, others left, and yet some of them actually practiced their old religious beliefs in private, or mixed the old traditions with the new religion.

Once the Christian kingdoms had defeated the last of the Moorish kingdoms on the Iberian peninsula, called Nasrid Granada, on January 2, 1492, the Spanish state was ready for the final stage of its liquidation, or its Christian Crusade against all religious enemies, implying the Moorish Muslims and the Jews, or judios.

Two of the Christian kingdoms on the peninsula had already united into an imperial power, called Las Españas, or the Kingdom of the Spains, comprising Castile, (including the northern Celt-Iberian provinces of Galiza, Asturias, Santander), and Aragon, also including Catalonia and Valencia. There were also the recently reconquered southern, Muslim provinces of Extremadura and Andalucía, which fell under the jurisdiction of Castille.

A hundred years later, this imperial power would later include the kingdoms of Vizcaya, (the Basque Country), the Portuguese empire, and the conquered provinces of the Carib nation, (Las Islas Occidentales), the Kingdom of Naples and Sicily, (southern Italy), the Mexica Empire, (Aztec New Spain), the Tahuantinsuyu Empire, (Inca Peru), and the eastern Malay islands on the Pacific, Las Filipinas, or the Philippines, Flandes, the modern Benelux countries, Franche-Comte, (a province in eastern France), and El Ducado de Milano, or the Duchy of Milan in northern Italy.

By the decade of the 1580s, the Kingdom of the Spains transformed into the greatest world empire that human history had ever seen – and even greater than the Mongol empire of the 1240s, because the sun never set on the Spanish imperial flag.

Around hundred years earlier, the 1470s, the Spanish united Christian monarchy, or los reinos cristianos, also introduced the Holy Inquisition in order to uncover, punish and redeem any converted New Christians, or cristianos nuevos, who refused to fully practice the new faith, or that continued to practice the old religious traditions in private. Meanwhile, the royal throne issued full expulsions against any non-Christians that refused to convert: the Jews in 1492 and the Muslims in 1609.

With the danger of New Christians inside the Empire, the Spanish Inquisition developed a pseudo-scientific system for better surveillance, control, arrest and even physical extermination of the potential threats, called, limpieza de sangre, or blood cleanliness. According to those medieval experts, blood poisoning spread through mothers giving breast milk to their babies. The Spanish Catholic Church had found a new obsession with saving babies from poisoned heretical mother’s milk!

The inquisitors believed that people who had practiced un-Christian religions had then permanently poisoned their own blood-breast milk through religious heresy. Christianity has always had obsessions with blood and fire, in the case of the Holy Blood of Jesus on the Cross, and the Lake of Fire Hell in the Apocalypse for non-believers of the Christian religion.

The first racial division of modern history represented the religious divide between Old Christians who kept the true Catholic Christian faith, (and yet did not go over to the Protestant heresy in the later decades), and the New Christians, recent converts to Christianity, from the Jewish and Muslim faiths.

The first realm of religious enemies represented the pagan idolaters, (inclusive of the eastern religions, such as Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, Taoists and Confucians), who if conquered through a Crusade or Holy War, had to convert to Christianity, with persuasion, or more than likely, with the sword, fire, and chains of violence.

The second group of adversaries were the other monotheist apostates, such as Jews and Muslims.

The most dangerous ones, or the religious terrorists in those days, were the heretics, or simply the Christians that refused to conform to Catholic doctrine and practice, such as the Gnostics, called alumbrados, the various Protestant sects, non-Catholic Orthodox, and the excommunicated Churches of the East, such as the Nestorians, Assyrians, Mandaeans and Copts.

As the Spanish Empire conquered new lands in the Americas, or the western hemisphere of the Earth, it needed cheap and servile labor for their plantation and cattle economies. Its enemies on two continents, the Western Hemisphere, or the Americas, and in Africa, were both pagan idolaters. If noble natives and Africans converted to Christianity, then they received noble privileges, such as carrying weapons, riding horses, wearing aristocratic European clothes and not having to work or pay taxes for a living.

If these former idolaters were commoners, and even if they converted to Catholic Christianity, they still could not receive any noble privileges, while they had to work for noble and wealthy Spanish colonials. During the decade of the 1580s in the Americas, Spanish colonials referred to these New Christian, darker skinned, native-African mixes as castas, or as racial castes.

Through the practices of the Spanish-Portuguese Empires, race had transformed into its modern, perverted, helter-skelter dimensions: internal population enemies dominated through the Nation-State, the losers of European colonial invasions and genocides, concern over a poisoned blood-gene pool, facial phenotypes, and low socio-economic status.

This is the true conception of the modern ideology of racialism, including its later variants of scientific racialism, positivism, utilitarianism, Malthusian overpopulation theories, prohibition against illegal drugs, social Darwinism, polygenism, craniometry, phrenology, eugenics, anthropology-culture studies, psychobabble and IQ, or Intelligence Quotient.

Racialism-Eugenics has existed as an important ideology in the maintenance of earlier colonial power relations, while it has instituted sophisticated social controls within contemporary society. It has become the state religion for most European nations and for all European colonial-settler states. This ideology defends the European sponsored imperial genocides against Natives, Africans and Asians, or against whatever non-European inferior cultures.

Racialism-Eugenics has further served as a bulwark for continual mass imprisonment and police murder against the poor inside of the ‘non-white’ population base. Most dreadfully, this pseudo-doctrine with its state institutional supports has enabled a type of self-hatred and inferiority complex within the targeted, darker people.

As the Afro-revolutionary Franz Fanon wrote, the colonized or ex-colonized must not only fight the actual oppressors and state criminals, but also has to acknowledge the demons of doubt and subservience within him or herself.

This fetid belief system would also move on to even greater societal targets: the poor in general regardless of color, the ‘criminal element,’ and the mentally ill. The sociopathic ideology still murders it potential victims and has destroyed millions of lives up to this actual day.

It now hides its evil works through various contemporary institutions: the mental hospital-social services clinic, the prison, and mandatory state schooling segregation, such as Special Education, Special Needs and Remedial Level Classes.

Let us continue to expose its sordid and covert history of institutional violence. As European settler-colonialism engaged in even more genocidal wars and slavery operations, the same race oil-grease to the imperial engines began to work on its own. The Spanish colonial masters developed over 64 different racial caste distinctions between white Spanish and the Native and African racial shades. We still use some of their racial terms today: mulato, negro, marron, mestizo, zambo, coyote and lobo.

As the 18th century, or the 1700s, continued, all the European colonial powers: Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, English, French and Danish developed the solid concept of ‘whiteness’ versus the supposed, darker scum of humanity: African slaves, Indian, (meaning American), savages and Hindu coolies, (in the India Subcontinent or South Asia).

During the 19th century, or the 1800s, European racialism took on a more ‘scientific’ or positivistic flair. Suddenly, a whole slew of European and European-American intellectuals, (too many to list in this essay), began to formulate philosophical-scientific theories on race, nation, culture, genetics, environment and brain-skull size.

Within all of these racialist theories there emerged our modern surrogate ideologies-sciences of Natural Evolution, Nationalism, Social Darwinism, Liberalism, Utilitarianism, Anthropology, Positivism, Social Psychology, or (social criminality-mental illness), Genetics, and the most violent and sinister of them all – Eugenics.

By the 20th century, Eugenics became the complete science in uncovering the true nature of the poly genetic races, blood poisoning, the elimination of skin color, the understanding of inferior beings, social pathologies, such as containment of the poor, the criminal elements, and the disposal of the mentally ill. In all the European nations and the European run colonial-settler states, from the United States to Australia to Canada to South Africa to every dictator pest in Latin America, state institutional policy supported a heavy defensive and offensive system against the internal-external race dangers.

The infernal methods against the rotten inferior beasts included outright physical genocide and mass imprisonment-forced slavery. Meanwhile, state actors forced kidnapping rings and mandatory schooling for Native children, inclusive of cultural genocide. Medical ‘professionals’ encouraged scientific experiments on host populations and forced sterilization against targeted women. Banking magnates allowed segregation of inferior groups within ghettos or within urban poverty zones, while the state denied any social benefits towards lower class recipients. In a sense, ‘the white-elite state’ hoped that the inferior breeds of half-humans would die out. The earlier over-population theories of Malthus became popular once again, and the European homegrown ideology of Fascism would put the final touches on the Racialist-Eugenics pseudo-science.

Up to our actual time, the ideologies of anthropology, liberalism, natural selection, social psychology, psychobabble, genetics and IQ have desperately tried to hide their racialist-eugenics past lives. This essay serves to expose the truth to all Anarchists, and to whomever else, about one of the world’s more vile ideological monsters.

American universities no longer have Eugenics studies, but this does not mean that the elites, who control our contemporary existence, do not believe in such theories. They still adhere to them, and this is the reason they send their children to highly segregated, university prep schools, where their fellow elites attend, and where very few of the racial vermin, poor, and criminal underclass will also attend – and where they definitely cannot afford the tuition.

This perverted-genocidal ideology and pseudo-science is still very much alive, both within the closed discussions and secretive meetings of world elites, such as Bilderberg and the World Economic Forum, and within the all of our contemporary institutions of social control: schools, corporate work sites, prisons, militaries, governments, media conglomerates and bureaucracies.

As long as the modern state maintains its rights to commit heinous crimes, so this ideology will continue to ooze its infections, and putrefy our lives and culture.

Activist with bullhornDemocratic_Socialists_Occupy_Wall_StreetComedian-politician speaking at rallypolice-arrest_protester-OccupyBundy-Ranch-stand down against state bulliesOutrage after murder of mike-brown-ferguson

Out of the mouth of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, birthed a harsh truth: our most heinous enemies are often our own minds. This adage was valid during the 6th century BCE on the Indian sub-continent – and it is still pertinent for most of us humans during the beginning years of the 21st century AD.

As I think back to my past days living in that west coast, hipster, capitalist-lite, urban cauldron in the United States, I often smile to myself about those times. I experienced some weird ‘street stuff’ during my ‘growing up,’ young adult period while living there.

I experienced some pretty pathetic and stupid actions during most of those political demonstrations, protests, marches and street manifestations, all supposedly against the State, fighting the system, in which I had often attended and participated. I thought that demos and manis sufficed in the struggle. I was wrong.

I distinctly recall Leftist lunatics with bullhorns screaming into them – even though a simple voice would have worked. They often yelled out the same noxious phrases, ‘who’s streets, our streets!’ and ‘the people united, will never be defeated!, and for those that wanted to show off their crap Spanish, ‘Sí, se puede…’ Meanwhile, the local donut brigade dressed up in military high-grade outfits, like ‘Robocops,’ and gazed ominously at us, the activist-coward losers.

We radical bums, many of us unemployed, underemployed, or simply traveling, just walked around the city blocks and shouted crap. Onlookers either looked with disinterest, or probably thought we were a bunch of weird hipsters trying to get on the local news.

The police seemed annoyed that they had to babysit us around the city blocks, and we only seemed to piss off the occasional right-wing, fascist asshole that spotted us in the distance. The local political hacks probably didn’t even know that a demo was in progress. The mood afterward was dispiriting. I wasted part of my day just walking around the city blocks while I almost risked a costly arrest for nothing.

I learned some important political lessons at least. The childish Leftist tactics of street protesting against injustice often did not work, still do not work – nor will they ever successfully work. As the nineteenth-century abolitionist, Frederick Douglas stated, ‘power concedes nothing without a struggle.’ Douglas might have meant petitioning the government at the next council meetings – but we are living in different and more troubling times than his own days.

All humans on the Earth are now living under the most heinous state-elite empire that human history has ever seen, witnessed and experienced. This empire, the Amerikan Empire, has murdered, maimed and destroyed more lives that the recent Nazi Empire in Europe and in North Africa.

The rulers of this evil state concoction have mixed Police State tactics and Mass Imprisonment against the general US population. This deadly concoction has included Classical Fascism with Fourth Generation warfare; Gladio style mercenary armies inclusive of Death Squad Counterinsurgency doctrines, blended with highly sophisticated media propaganda, also incorporating widespread brainwashing among most American social classes and ethnicities

Ultimately, this Amerikan Empire encourages eternal wars, both foreign and domestic, while utilizing the most sadistic methods of monopoly capitalism. We are not dealing with insidious Fascist parties of the 1930s European variety; instead, we face cabals of state sociopaths in deep love with their powers to commit legal mass murder. How could we even think to fight such monstrous Evil and atrocious Terror?

First, Planned Political Demonstrations often do not work, and they can even turn defeating for any revolutionary movement.

Nothing is worse than having police push and shove the marchers onto the sidewalks and then pick off the unlucky stragglers for detention and arrest. Street demonstrations work when the numbers are present, meaning hundreds of thousands of marchers.

The politicians take notice and often speak at those boring rallies. The end of any successful, massive political demonstration is not crowd satisfaction, but a political reform proposal that gives a little painkiller dope to the marchers from their same, worst enemies – the politicians.

Hundreds of people out in the streets, united in outrage against some recent State criminal injustice works splendidly. The shock, anger and courageous movement of regular people scares the State monsters. These types of movements are spontaneous, powerful and frighten State power. The police come out in force and the threat of state violence is very present. The rage of the oppressed is far more powerful than the paid thugs and mercenaries of the State. The State knows this truth.

Another good political method is the armed defense of the defenseless against state bullying and threats. The criminal state plans nefariously, and with absolute attention to detail, against all of its ‘principal and dangerous enemies.’

State agents have always wanted to make examples of certain people, which works well in cowering the rest of the population into cowardice. Those US government sociopaths used such tactics against the Black Panthers, the Drug Counterculture, and the Anti-War Movement in the seventies, against MOVE in the eighties, against the Branch Davidians in the nineties, and against the domestic Muslim population during the first decade of the 21st century.

They recently tried the same thing against America’s gun culture, outlaw ranchers and Southern culture during the second decade. This is what happened recently at the Bundy Ranch. When the armed regular citizens faced the goons of the state, the state hoods left the scene of the crime.

The government agents then prepare for their revenge – which is what they are doing as I write this essay. The freedom fighters with guns in Ferguson have just set them a little off course however.

Second, We must never offer apologies for speaking the truth to power against all injustice, state criminality, cowardice, and all forms of structural violence.

Recently, I have witnessed political blogs that have consistently documented Amerikan police violence against the general population, apologizing and backtracking on their websites. These Internet blogs actually believe that one article praising the ‘good cops’ will make the police forces respect them – or even keep them safe from police abuse. This is not the case, nor has it ever been true throughout history. Like all bullies, elites, slave masters and street thugs, those that hold power always hate and despise the weaker ones that do not hold power.

Third, We have to avoid, reject, ignore, not even browse, nor use any of the vocabulary from both the corporate ‘mainstream’ media and the corporate alternative, Leftist media. Every time we use their bogus terminologies and most importantly, echo chamber their issues and concerns, we become mental slaves to them and they, in turn, become our ideological masters. We willingly enter the worst type of mental slavery.

For example, if both the Corporate Mainstream Media and the Corporate Alternative-Leftist Media happen to trivialize and sensationalize police, cops and racism, then we ought to continue our focus on the nefarious history of all abuses of power: courts, prisons, police, plantations and the State, inclusive of US military policing during invasions of foreign countries.

If the police murder some regular civilian on our urban streets, then we need to use the right words for our outrage – the word of murder. The police are not killing our fellow our citizens, they are murdering them, and this is especially true during the arrests and murders of non-victim ‘crimes,’ such as taking ‘illegal drugs.’ or ‘selling ‘contraband’ on the city streets. The same is true of the US military overseas. If the US government bombs a village and murders a good amount of the local population, then this is also murder, and we ought to use the correct verb.

This method also works for the now stale terms of terrorism and terror. Terrorism is not just the desperate guy with the gun and hostages, it also represents the desperate villagers huddled under the cover of a shelter during a massive bombing raid. Invasion needs to replace war, collaborators need to replace interim governments, and mass murder needs to replace civilian casualties.

Instead of overusing the term, homeless and the poor, we could state, throw away populations. When we refer to the chronic underemployed, permanently unemployed and poverty, we could use the phrase, structural violence. The list goes even further with prisons as concentration-internment centers, elections as corporate controlled selections, schools as day jails for children and adolescents, universities as corporate loan education frauds, federal, state, local taxation-fines-fees, and without representation, as government extortion rackets. As the trite saying goes, honesty is the best policy.

We do not have to repeat the themes and sensationalized issues of our media enemies. We can speak and write about our own issues, create our own momentum and social concerns, and ultimately, use our own terms to describe the injustice that sucks the life out of the most unfortunate and the most sensitive within our society. We all know that there is a lot more going on underneath the mass propaganda techniques.

We can focus on what we want, and keep attacking the state criminals, meaning the political-economic elites. Yes, we lack their powers, but if we control our minds, then we are free from their manipulations. Our mind freedom is the most important card that we hold in the eventual defeat of such a vigorous enemy. When we free our minds first, then we will eventually ignore, reject and not cooperate with the State sociopaths. Through this method, we negate their cultural power over us.

As we learn to enjoy the parts of our lives that are free from such tyranny, other bystanders will take notice. They will see our power, dignity, honor and freedom, and later, they will adopt similar tactics versus the predator state.

When we reach around 20% of the population, which ominously looks upon the State as the enemy and begins to reject both their counsel and cultural power, then the Empire will fall – and it will fall brutally. Even the onlookers will get hurt.

No Empire falls graciously in history. Its collaborator empires will also fall, such as the Neo-British Empire, and its colonial-settler ‘white’ sublets, such as Anglo-Canada, White Australia and British New Zealand. Other nefarious states will also implode, such as the Colombian, Saudi, Indonesian and Mexican Fascist juntas, and the Zio-Nazi Crusader State.

This method of political sophistication and tactics seems easy, but it is incredibly hard to practice. We begin with the little steps in ignoring the State, while calling out their infernal methods with the truth to power. We could start with politely and courteously correcting an acquaintance repeating the State media propaganda during a friendly get together.

Courage and fortitude both conceive the first rites for emancipation.

Pope innocent_viiiShiva, Parvati and Ganesh with BhangThe AssassinsOrientalist view of AssassinsShivaites with Chillumbhang drinkers HoliHoli-lunch-ThaaliNorth African with Kif pipeOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A cold wind was howling through the medieval streets of Rome during middle December. The days were real short. Darkness even shadowed the moon. This particular day was in the middle of the month, and the year was 1485. Christmas had its parties coming up, but the Pope Caesar had other nefarious plans tucked into his fat stomach. The sinister name of intolerance and hypocrisy was none other than Pope Innocent VIII, (the Eighth).

On this nefarious date he issued a strange papal bull against witchcraft and sorcery that seemed to infect the women of Europe, and especially the First Reich of Germany, bizarrely called, the Holy Roman Empire. This Empire was neither holy nor Roman.

Within this peculiar papal condemnation, he also cited the use of a demonic herb, called cannabis, often found, or imagined, in satanic religious rites. His informant-experts for these underground, conspiratorial satanic covens represented two German Dominican monks, Jakob Spengler and Heinrich Kramer. They would soon publish a nasty book, called ‘The Hammer of the Witches,’ which would help in the murder of close to 200,000 ‘witches,’ mostly marginalized women, during the next 250 years in Europe and in America.

Unfortunately for the plant ‘cannabis sativa,’ this strange and mystical herb from deep Asia, received the taint of evil with the papal stamp of approval. Yet, this same Pope Innocent the Eighth enjoyed some other mortal sins during his reign. He was obese and lived a life of extreme luxury inside the papal palace. He fathered two illegitimate children and had them married off into one of the strongest Families in Renaissance Italy, the Medici. He dipped some of the papal finances into the new Portuguese African Slave Trade. Meanwhile, he tried to revive the Papal Crusades of another Pope Innocent, in order to exterminate the Muslim Turks, the Protestant Waldensians in Northern Italy, and the Hussites in the Czech lands. All cannabis haters in history have shared three evil characteristics: intolerance, gross hypocrisy and state murder.

What is it about cannabis sativa that attracts such hatred and venom? The answer lies in its historical origins: the mystical rites for Lord Shiva and the Islamic Assassins in the medieval period. Cannabis still has these mystical, ‘orientalist’ associations to this actual day. Whether the foreign visitor enters the medinas of Morocco or the festivals dedicated to Shiva in India and Nepal, the scent of the cannabis herb inundates the consciousness.

From its evil oriental connections until its later appearances in the United States, cannabis would connect to a more infamous notoriety. African-American artists smoked the herb while they played their demonic, African sensualized beats, called jazz. Attractive white women even took off their shoes in the smoky clubs, and they danced with the demons. Mestizo, mixed race, Mexican fruit pickers and outlaws also smoked the leaf, called ‘mota,’ during their raucous partying. The dangerous, criminal classes, of course, used the oriental poison. The Amerikan Imperial thugs had taken notice. The historical hatred against cannabis has simply been another combined form of intolerance and murder.

Cannabis is actually a marvelous and natural soft drug. It relaxes and calms the mental nerves, and helps with bouts of nausea and gastrointestinal pains. Some doctors state that cannabis has other helpful healing properties. Cannabis can spark interior mental activity or engaging conversation. It stimulates the human appetites, both culinary and sexual. The drug goes perfectly with foods, entertainment, the arts and it especially compliments other natural drugs found on the Earth, such as alcohol, coffee and tea.

The only negatives to the drug are certain habitual users of it. It seems to have the similar effects of antidepressants on them, which produce lethargy, ego self-obsessions, or minor neuroses. But these are some excessive users. I have also personally met aggressive and successful attorneys that were avid smokers of the weed.

I return to cannabis’ ancient history and its orientalist associations. Lord Shiva, the God of both Creation and Destruction, the Cosmic Dance and the Holy Lingam, (phallic power), the revealer of mystical Tantra, patron of cows, yoga and the third sex, married to the goddess, Parvati, father to the god, Ganesh – also partook of the mystical drink, called ‘soma.’ Legend has it that the mystical drink was none other than ‘bhang,’ a milky concoction containing cannabis.

Shiva’s wandering followers called ‘sadhus,’ still partake of the magical perfumed medicine. During my travels around the world, I have seen these holy men, and some thieving-fakers claiming to exist as sadhus, smoking cannabis out of funnel type ceramic pipes called ‘chillum.’ Watching those holy men in action with their long dread locks, scruffy beards, blue and white-painted dyes, bodies smeared with cow dung, rope necklaces and bracelets, and dirty loin cloths, added to the whole Indian-Asian mystical effect.

On a more common level, during the Hindu festival of Holi, which happens around springtime, young Indians and Nepalese drink the marvelous liquid ‘bhang’ shakes, or ‘lassies,’ and later, hit the public streets throwing brightly colored dyes on the surrounding partiers and walkers. They hit me too – which added to the great fun during that day. Shiva’s gift was a truly a wonderful act.

Islam conquered the northern regions of the Indian subcontinent in the middle of the eleventh century. The cannabis magic of Shiva would also influence the Sufi Muslim mystics that lived in those regions. Even the great Sufi poet and mystic, Rumi, praised the herb and the wine. Cannabis entered the Islamic world: it stayed and it prospered. Still today in the Islamic world from North Africa to Afghanistan, the traveler can spot old men sitting in cafes, wearing their ‘chalaba’ long outfits with hoods. They smoke the green and brown ‘kif’ in their long pipes, while they sip on herbal mint tea, Turkish coffee and chew on honey snacks. Religious controversies have continued between the Sunni, Shia and Sufi branches of Islam – but smoking the flowering buds united them all.

One of the truths of human history has been its reign of absurdity. Cannabis had attached itself to one of the Shia sects of medieval Islam – ‘the Assassins.’ The Assassins were part of the Ismaili sect or the ‘Seveners.’ They also drank the luscious wine and smoked the enchanting herb.

The medieval Japanese Shogunates had their ‘ninjas’; while Medieval Islamic World Culture had their assassins. The assassins lived outside of society. Those disciplined holy warriors squatted in abandoned, foreboding military castles in northern Syria, Iraq and Iran. Their founder, Hassan i Sabbah, or ‘The Old Man of the Mountain,’ organized this Shia sect military order into a hierarchical brotherhood. Inside the castle, the warriors studied religious and philosophical texts, scientific works, learned various languages, and most importantly, the arts of killing. Their three preferred methods moved towards the silent variety: the dagger, the poison and strangulation.

Their victims were always political leaders within the Islamic world. If the Islamic political hack instituted unjust acts, mandated cruel laws, oppressed the poor, allowed poverty to accumulate, or stole lots of money from the just – then the Assassins went on the attack.

The Assassins first left a note pinned with a small dagger within the confines of the caliph or sultan’s palace. If that didn’t work, then the spiritual leader picked an Assassin to fulfill the last deed – a violent death. The Assassins always reached their victims, and after killing the state bum, they would often let frightened onlookers see the terminating work. Many of the assassins never returned from their ultimate missions.

Only one Islamic political-military ruler survived them – Saladin the Great. He survived three attempts on his life. They aroused fear in both the Islamic potentates and the European royal Crusaders. One of the Crusader kings even used the Assassins as allies against his Islamic rivals. Their enemies called them, ‘hashasheen’ in Arabic, or the Troublemakers.

From this Arabic word, the European Crusaders, and especially the Venetian merchant, Marco Polo, tied some connections between the sinister Oriental herbal paste, ‘hashish,’ with Assassin lore. According to the ignorant Euro-experts, hash was the powerful ingredient that transformed the Assassins into fanatical killers. This corrupted link also transformed European languages on the continent.

Most European languages have a separate word for killing and for murder: ‘matar,’ in Spanish, ‘tuer,’ in French, and ‘uccidire,’ in Italian. But these three languages share the same original word for murder, ‘asesinar, assassiner, assassinare.’ This outrageous relation between cannabis and irrational violence even stayed well into the 1930s USA with crap movies such as ‘Reefer Madness.’

This marvelous soft drug of cannabis has had its absurd orientalist associations. The real issue of cannabis was not its properties, but the European hatred for ‘the other,’ which still fuels the sociopathology of the Amerikan Empire. The murderous and hateful world empire still hunts for its victims through its continuous War against Cannabis, and all other ‘illegal drugs.’ The CIA can deal whatever it wants, yet the same US government prefers smokers to rot inside its hundreds of overpopulated prisons. In spite of all of this hate, Lord Shiva’s precious gift still wafts its distinctive breeze throughout all the lands of the Earth.
