2.10.10 Illegal drug users: Freedom to use and eventually recover
Up to 80% of crimes such as theft, robbery and muggings are caused by drug addicts in dire need of money to satisfy their next fix. In the Sovereign tribes of the United Kingdom it has been estimated that drug abuse costs approximately $1500 per year per household. Most murders in inner cities are turf wars between rival drug gangs. The following guidelines will drastically reduce crime at a stroke and choke the cause of the problem.
Sovereign states where illegal hard drugs are a problem are directed to liberalise their laws as soon as possible. If someone wants hard drugs such as Heroin or Cocaine, let them go to a specialist doctor who is licensed and managed by the appropriate government agency (for example the DEA in America). As long as the user stays out of trouble and consumes in private, they can have access via their licensed doctor to the best drugs money can't buy today.
As for drug dealers, drug couriers or DUI drug users that do not stay out of trouble, I direct an increase to the punishment given as a deterrent. If it can be proven that a drug dealer induced someone to use drugs for the first time, the punishment should be even harsher.
Syringes should always be swapped free of charge, no questions asked to avoid HIV cross contamination.
Having shamefully used hard drugs in the past, albeit infrequently and a long time ago, I am one of the most anti drug people you will find. But I'm also realistic because I know what it's like to use these vile chemicals and for what reason. Ironically I found it harder to stop smoking tobacco than stopping the occasional indulgence in Cocaine, crack, speed or "soft" drugs.
I predict the day will come when certain hard drugs will be placed in open bowls in the centre of towns and cities but no one will want to touch the poison. Even ex drug addicts will rather die than do so.
I want a shocking 24 hour channel set up that shows the results of drug use, live police raids against dealers, how to stop using drugs, how to stop smoking or how to stop being an alcoholic and where to go for confidential local help for any substance misuse problem.
In the meantime I want graphic detailed pictures of dead drug users used at police stations to shock those arrested for using drugs. Suspected drug dealers should also be shown pictures and films of the bodies of murdered or tortured victims of drug dealers' turf wars.Top Home All Bottom
2.10.20 "Soft" Drugs
Illegal "soft" drugs such as Marijuana that are not a major problem in Sovereign states where they are banned, should remain criminally illegal. If this is the will of the local population, let it be. The same applies to alcohol which is banned in certain tribal regions.
Nevertheless, I have decided that Marijuana, commonly known as "grass" (not to be confused with its stronger counterpart "Hashish") should be legalised as soon as possible to avoid paperwork and save law enforcement time. I go so far as to decree that Sovereign states should control and tax the distribution of Marijuana in the same way tobacco and alcohol is taxed. In the UK the Inland Revenue can take the lead in taxing the distribution of "grass", in the USA - the IRS can undertake the task.
I direct coffee shops be licensed and taxed to sell certain non-hard drugs. With such a licence will come responsibility and rules.
In tribal regions where Marijuana is considered a problem, I don't want to hear one word of descent from anyone in authority who regularly smokes tobacco and considers it socially acceptable to be regularly intoxicated (drunk) with alcoholic beverages.
(Memo note to myself: Get the DTI in the UK to complete a report for my approval)
2.10.30 Bulk Acquisition of Hard Drugs
I direct all Sovereign tribes where illegal hard drugs are a problem that decide to adopt my aforementioned liberalisation directive to buy hard drugs in bulk.
I want the following guidelines adopted, and the DEA, which today is probably one of the most efficient, least corrupt and largest drug enforcement agency in the World to become the focal point for "buying" hard drugs for all Sovereign tribes that are attempting to cure their drug addicts. The expression "collective" referred to below relates to selected groups of local farmers in South America (coca/Cocaine) and the Far East (Opium/Heroin).
Crimes such as murder and kidnapping will plummet in drug growing regions. Exploited and frightened village peasants will eventually be weaned into other ways to feed their families. They will eventually own their own farms, grow alternative crops and not hide in fear of left wing guerrillas, right wing troops, drug barons or the DEA.
Summary: Controlling the production and supply of hard drugs from source to user will create a virtual monopoly, in some cases taxable. The gangsters, dealers and barons will become history, just like the bootleggers during American prohibition. So will many gangland murders.
2.10.40 The Politics of Drugs
If political parties election manifestos include getting tough on drugs, I commend them. Go after the dealers and their wholesale suppliers and factories, not the mentally ill drug users. From the savings made, spend 70% in overall law enforcement costs to rebuild the slums in inner cities that in many regions have been destroyed because of drug use and spend the remaining 30% on drug education.
Follow my directives as soon as possible and watch crime plummet almost immediately. The temporary surge in registered drug users will diminish on a regular basis with my various education initiatives over the next few years.
There is no alternative to getting a permanent solution other than to shoot every drug dealer and drug user within 24 hours. So follow my directions above.Top Home All Bottom
2.10.50 Support for families of drug addicts
I direct help be provided to these often forgotten casualties of drug abuse. They need support too.
2.20.10 Abortion: An alternative to pro life and pro choice
There is an alternative to pro life and pro choice, especially when the foetus is potentially damaged.
When the technology has been perfected to freeze and store embryos let this be a third choice.
I have a profoundly disabled son with learning disabilities, my first born, who is the love of my life. If my wife and I had the choice in 1977, we would still have had Kristian and neither aborted nor frozen his embryo, yet I will never criticise those that do. I firmly believe our Creator God has built a backup system for human beings and a potential for rebirth or resurrection in the future. If a computer has a backup, shouldn't a human being?
Not connected with the above statements, I have personally experienced the emotions surrounding an unplanned pregnancy which could have created many problems at the time. Although nature took its course and a miscarriage occurred, it would have been preferable to have a third option: temporary freezing and storing the embryo.
Let embryo freezing be a third choice to pro life and pro choice. As such, at a given point in time, 12 years after freezing takes place or when the mother reaches a certain age, if neither parent wishes to have the baby, one final option should be offered: the transplant of the frozen stored foetus to one of thousands of women who cannot conceive a baby. There will not be a shortage of volunteers. Nevertheless, the responsibility what to do will at all times remain with the parents, specifically the mother. They are answerable to their consciences and to their spiritual beliefs and not to the state or religious clerics.
Instead of abortion, the choice of having the baby as normal and allowing it to be adopted by pre screened, pre approved couples within days of birth should also be available.
To allow a mother the option to change her mind and to keep her baby from being adopted without hurting or emotionally distressing would-be adopters, I want the following process in place:
2.20.30 Comfort to those who feel guilty or tormented
Those who have suffered because of a miscarriage, the death of their baby or have inner guilt or torment because of a "one off" abortion are directed to listen to the beautiful song made famous by Celine Dion entitled "FLY"1. If you cannot understand English or French, get on the website and print off one of the many literal translations I have prepared for you on www.12-12-12.org/2.20.30.
Listen to it back to back 7 times non-stop. Do not stop half way or it will be like waking up in the middle of surgery. The first 5 times will be agonising, the last 2 will give you inner peace and closure, especially if you believe in God and pray for help in between the songs.
I have witnessed with my own eyes very religious pro life groups stand in shopping centres holding up pictures of aborted baby foetuses. I respect their right to freedom of expression. Will they respect the feelings of parents who have recently suffered the trauma of a miscarriage or the loss of a newborn baby? Instead of doing this, I direct they peacefully hand out a poem entitled "Diary of an unborn child". It can be found on www.12-12-12.org/2.20.30.
1 Written by Jean Jacques Goldman and Phil Galdston in 1996.
2.20.40 The Facts of Life and Death
The morons who blow up abortion clinics and their occupants are commanded to cease and desist. If you are as religious as you make out, surely you believe in a resurrection of the dead embryo anyway! The Creator will judge each patient and doctor on an individual case by case basis, should it be appropriate, not you. The Creator knows all the facts, you don't. Murderous criminals such as yourselves will also be judged. The Creator knows all the facts and now so do you - so Get Off My Planet .
2.20.50 Drug Addicts and Abortion
I commend Barbara Harris (of California) and her team for using a market based proposition to eliminate multiple abortion and unwanted pregnancies to drug addicts. The excellent plan using her non profit organisation (Children Requiring A Kommunity: Crack) involves paying money to female drug addicts who need regular abortions to get sterilised or take long term birth control. Ms Harris deserves this commendation and others should follow her example.
2.20.60 Embryonic stem cell research
I wholeheartedly agree with the words of a senior Christian cleric made recently where he stated -
"Human life is not a commodity: a baby is not a product; an embryo is not a cluster of exploitable cells but a potential human being."
But I also believe that in the not too distant future millions of embryos, millions of babies and millions of human beings will owe their quality of life, if not life itself to licensed research using embryos. However much I dislike the idea, in the same way I dislike the idea of brave fire fighters sacrificing their lives to save others or suicidal rescue attempts - the good of the vast majority often outweighs the perceived good of the few.
Furthermore, while I fully agree with anti abortion campaigners in their belief that effective treatments may be available using adult cells instead of embryos, for the sake of research into curing illnesses of the elderly and disabled people sooner rather than later, I authorise licensed embryonic cloning now.
It is all very well arguing whether it's right or wrong to use this method instead of less controversial ones, but until better methods are proven to exist I direct that living Alzheimers sufferers, living spinal injury sufferers, or living disabled people have priority over the living dead embryos that may cure them.
I can't see what all the fuss is about. As long as it is within predefined, licensed and enforced parameters - go find cures!Top Home All Bottom
2.30 Population control
One of the many advantages that successful implementation of the War Bond will bring is the elimination of having to give birth to many children for security in old age. With 4 children of my own I am certainly not going to pontificate on how many children each couple may have.
Nevertheless, there are three directives which I want followed in tribes where a population problem exists:
Until the time comes that the human race colonises its first non terrestrial habitat, population control will be deemed a major issue to monitor, and I commend Sovereign tribes such as China and India for doing something about the problem.
2.40 Organ transplants, Donor cards, blood transfusions
If you are not carrying an organ donor card now, lend me your ears. If you are prepared to consider accepting an organ transplant for yourself or your family, it is only right to become a donor.
Enclosed with this book is a sheet containing 12 organ donor cards. Check their validity within your particular Sovereign state. Sign one of the temporary cards today and keep it on you if you would readily accept an organ donation for yourself or your children. Someone else who is reading this book today may save the life of your loved one tomorrow. Remember to tell your closest relatives what you have done.
You are requested to give the other organ donor cards to the next 11 closest friends, work mates or relatives you will meet in the next few hours. If they are in the vicinity stop reading this book and do it now, reminding the recipients that a signature is all that is needed to make the donor card legally binding in certain tribal regions.
If your life has been saved due to a blood transfusion then become a blood donor at least once a year. Anyone who would readily accept a blood transfusion today for themselves or their children, should offer, personal circumstances permitting, their blood donation within the next 28 days.
Whereas donating blood is perfectly safe, blood transfusions can cause major problems. Artificial blood and artificial organs should be developed at the earliest opportunity to eliminate hospital waiting lists and the many problems associated with existing medical treatment - whether physical or religious.
I especially commend those who allow the organs of their deceased loved ones to be used to save the life of someone of opposing religious beliefs. Touching examples can be found on www.12-12-12.org/2.40.
2.50 Female 'circumcision' eradication and prevention
I forbid this vile practice and direct it be eradicated immediately.
I honour the Somalian Waris Dirie, a beautiful woman, professional fashion model and caring human being who was brave enough to bring to light this vile practice that was forced upon her. Read her touching story. The shocking truth of what it is like to be one of the 90% of little girls born in certain African tribes.
For "men" who repeat the practice, I direct chemical castration or mandatory sterilisation so as to ensure they bring no more little girls into the World.
No War Bond investment will be made in tribes that allow or turn a blind eye to this enforced mutilation of female children. I direct the relevant civil and medical authorities place the following edict in a prominent position in any village known to have practised FGM. It is available for printing in most relevant tribal languages by getting on the www.12-12-12.org/2.50 website.
2.60 The Japanese Social Services Experiment: A virtual currency
I commend the Sovereign tribes of Japan for their unique visionary social services experiment in caring for elderly and disabled people.
I direct that this be used as a model in all other Sovereign tribes. For the uninitiated, the idea is actually quite simple. For every hour someone spends looking after the elderly, or disabled people, the State guarantees the time donor or their family will get one hour of help when they need it, in addition to "normal" health insurance.
Depending on what time of day the work is undertaken, or what the work entails provides various "Time account credits". Quite a lot of kind hearted people actually give away their time credits and just volunteer anyway. The elderly actually prefer workers from the Hureai Kippu ('caring relationship ticket') than social service workers paid by the state or insurance company!
This system is the key to caring for the elderly of the future. Think about it. What if the human race is initially given the knowledge to "discover" average life spans of several hundred years? Assume population control is not an issue. Assume old age only occurs for the last few years as now. The whole issue of social security will need to be put on the drawing board. This is the drawing board.
On a philosophical note, have you thought of the possibility that nature, evolution, fate, collective conscience or as I believe, God, may permit scientists to discover the technology for massive increases to human lifespan, only when certain key issues are resolved GLOBALLY, such as... war, poverty, population control, environment, boredom, sustainable abundance and ethical spiritual beliefs.
Get the social services infrastructure working now using time as a measurement as well as existing systems and watch the immediate improvement it will have in the World. I invite everyone to refer to the Family Community Support Card at the back of this book in appendix F.
2.70 Caring for Seniors
I direct local regional social services to create a confidential list of eldely people, especially widows and widowers in their area who need company or practical help such as shopping, gardening, etc. This list is to be ready by December 12 2003 with a social services contact telephone number prominently advertised in local newspapers, and liaison with the Community Support officer at local schools1.
1 "The Community Support officer" is the expression I will use for "School and local community liaison volunteer coordinator". It has no religious significance whatsoever.
2.80 Caring for the physically challenged
Physically challenged people hate being treated as sub-citizens. Worse than that is being talked to condescendingly as if they have learning disabilities. "Adopt" someone who is of the same age as one of the parents or children of your family. Take them out on a family outing every few weeks and befriend their close family. Maybe just invite them for dinner, once every 12 weeks. I want social services to create local helplines and advertise them in local newspapers by December 12 2003 and liaise with the Community Support club officer at local schools.
I direct a substantial increase in wheel chair access to buildings, pavements and nature trails.
2.90 Caring for people with profound learning disabilities
People with profound learning disabilities are often blessed with special gifts. My son Kristian has certain savant qualities such as remembering most of the highway grid of Great Britain, the top 20 UK pop hits going back to the 1960s and peoples birthdays. He likes watching soccer and particularly likes to see Wycombe Wanderers, Manchester United and England win. I went with him to see England play Greece and although he is technically half Greek Cypriot I could not resist teasing him as to which team he should support. Sometimes there is an aura of love and innocence surrounding such people, that has a catching effect on those around them.
It's rude to stare at them, but nice to smile and sometimes to wave or say hello. They don't bring you bad luck if you put them in your taxi cab or touch their hands.
I commend the black licensed London taxi cabs who make an annual convoy for disabled children to the seaside. Effective 2003 on the first Sunday after July 15 let taxi drivers around the World make this type of day out into a tradition. The positive impact to the children concerned and the millions who witness the event will by far compensate for the carbon monoxide emissions. (For the southern hemisphere the date will be the first Sunday after January 15th.)
I also commend the many charities that exist throughout the World who help people with profound learning disabilities, the specialist professionals who help to look after them and look forward to a day in the future when with the Creator's intervention such sickness does not exist.Top Home All Bottom
2.100 Genetically modified humans
I have worked with some of the largest computer systems in the World specialising in Problem and Change Management". Whether it be your PC at home or the biggest computer network for the biggest bank in the World, the following computer law is undeniable: "problems cause the need to change things and "things" that change sometimes become problems." Speaking from experience it is often the smallest change that causes the biggest problems to fix which impacts many, many people.
Genetically modified humans, by which I mean changing the DNA of a person or their future offspring is to be handled with the utmost care. You'll feel a bit of a twit in 10 years if the DNA "treatment" to give you a very macho hairy chest and huge muscles has the side effect of a minuscule penis and huge bunny rabbit ears.
I do not accept the idea that a rich ruling elite should be able to buy specialist DNA programming expertise to design and create customised babies. I will allow the technology, within reason, to be used to eliminate sickness and hereditary disease, but not to create super babies for the sake of it. Two olympic athletes who decide to have a family and give birth to a super athlete is fine, but two couch potatoes should not produce a laboratory super high jumper with 4 legs.
I direct that 12 eminent people, cautious, incorruptible, experts in their field, highly respectable and paragons of ethical virtue be appointed trustees of issuing global guidelines on these matters. Deliberation must take place in public. Only votes of 9 out of 12 or more will pass and will be final.
2.110 Human cloning
I forbid it with the exception of parents who wish to clone their own very sick child who is going to die and then use non life threatening surgery to acquire body parts for the elder twin from the cloned child.
I honour a brave South African boy Nkosi Johnson who as an 11 year old Aids sufferer publicly campaigned on behalf of all African HIV/Aids sufferers. I want the following directives followed with immediate effect:
2.130 Drug Patents and availability
While the existing monetary system is in force inventions should belong to the inventor or their/its corporate assignee. This includes drug patents. But I direct two caveats to this rule be adhered to:
2.140 Driving tests to include mandatory very basic First Aid
Prior to passing a driving test, learner drivers must spend a mandatory session learning basic life and death accident first aid skills. Truck drivers, public transport drivers and taxi drivers are directed to spend at least half a day learning first aid procedures. I want charities that provide courses to give free places to such frequent travellers of the road.
By hospices I refer to a hospital specifically built for those who are going to die. Let those who need hospital care for the last few months of their lives be treated with the dignity they deserve by each Sovereign state. Nevertheless, support reputable charities that provide assistance to the dying. What if it was a member of your family or you?
2.160 Air ambulances from standby defence assets such as helicopters
Throughout the World there are thousands of Army/Air Force helicopters lying idle waiting for a possible international emergency. I direct that they be used as air ambulances. Obviously I'm not suggesting a fully armoured missile enabled NATO Chenook battleship lands on the busy Autobahn outside of Munich, Germany to taxi a tourist with a broken leg who fell off his bike due to overdrinking at the Bavarian beer festival. I'm talking major emergencies only. What better training is there than such a real life or death situation to test a pilot's skills?
2.170 1 hour per week corporate employee sponsorship of local issues
I commend all companies large and small for their ongoing charitable donations. Now I want your time.
I request companies provide an average of one hour per week per employee to help local good causes. This will only take effect if the employees who volunteer add an extra 30 minutes to their working week by way of shorter breaks and/or a few minutes of overtime.
For a maximum of 26 hours paid time off per year, the local community will get 52 hours (7 working days) of assistance and well deserved positive publicity for your company. Employees who volunteer should not forget to fill in their family Community Support Cards.
Local newspapers should help to get things going in liaison with local community leaders, social workers and school Community Support club officers.
I invite all corporations to allow some employee volunteers to have a 3-4 month unpaid sabbatical as part of the Sahara desert reclamation project defined in section 3.70 of this book.
The War Bond will assist in the eventual return of many refugees to their homelands. As a final one off exercise I have decided that those refugees that are truly in danger if they return will be rehoused throughout the World. From the year 1 ACH, I direct there will be no refugees in the World.
2.190 Immigration and Asylum Matters
The day will come when there will be no restrictions travelling between tribal boundaries, no work permits, no passports and no ID's. Until that day, tolerance should be shown to those seeking a better life.
In the USA the average GDP of a typical southern family is less than half of that of a Rhode Island family, so why hasn't everyone in the south packed their bags and moved north? Being American they don't need a passport or a work permit, so why isn't the south deserted or Rhode Islanders blocking their borders from unwanted poor southerners?
The same applies to the European Union where the Sovereign tribes of Portugal and Greece have half the GDP of the two richest ones in the European Union. They too do not need work permits to travel or work, so why aren't Greece and Portugal deserted?
Here's why: if there are no wars and no huge difference between the wealth of all the tribes in the World - there will be no real incentive to want to leave family, friends and cultures behind and start a new life abroad. Eradicating extreme poverty is the first step towards eliminating work permits and allowing a truly free migration of people. It works both ways. When future technology enables commuters to live in a lovely region of the Rocky Mountains yet allows them to cheaply, safely and quickly commute to Tokyo or Zurich, that's when the borderless global village will truly be born.
Nevertheless that's for the future, which is why the following important statements that apply now cannot remain untold:
If my family and I are hungry or cold, the chances are most decent neighbours will happily provide temporary assistance with no expectation of repayment. But what if within half an hour of setting foot in my neighbours home I use his phone to contact some of my relatives and get them to move in as well? Again, if this is a temporary problem due to some event I could not control, my neighbour will probably continue to be both hospitable and understanding. The fact my neighbour may be rich and I poor gives no excuse to take advantage of him. That would be wrong.
So, from a long line of immigrants and knowledge of being of a minority tribe, my experienced directions on immigration and asylum now follow. Top Home All Bottom
2.190.10 My instructions to Immigrants (and asylum seekers):
The following directions will apply to immigration until the human race truly becomes one people on one planet and work permits and passports will become a thing of the past:
2.190.20 My instructions to Sovereign Tribes relating to Immigrants (and Asylum Seekers)
The following directions should be followed by tribes when offering citizenship to immigrants:
If they have been recipients of social security, sell their assets and give it to orphans of parents who have died in 'holy' wars or ethnic tribal cleansing. To claim social security from the local tribe while preaching religious intolerance or racial hatred against others who live there should not be tolerated. There's a fine line between this and freedom of speech - it must not be crossed.
2.200 The new ‘Global Science and Medical ethics Board’
I direct that 12 eminent people, cautious, incorruptible, experts in their field, highly respectable and paragons of ethical virtue be appointed trustees in issuing global guidelines on these matters. Deliberation must take place in public. Only votes of 9 out of 12 or more will pass and will be final.
Although I do not drink alcohol (Planetary Management are on 24 hour duty), I used to. But although I was never an alcoholic, I have seen the consequences of regular overdrinking. Why don't you quit today if you are an alcoholic? NOW. If you don't you will probably die and not see the historic events in December 2012. Get on the www.12-12-12.org/2.210 website for help now.
I direct tolerance be shown to smokers. It is their right to inhale the black soot into their wheezing coughing tar infested lungs. It is their right to consume their self indulgent cancer causing, narcotic which kills millions every year. It is their right to attempt to kiss their sweethearts with nicotine stained teeth, diseased gums and stinking rancid breath.
I direct that with immediate effect, laws should be passed making it illegal for a motorist to smoke in the presence of children while driving a car. On the spot police fines should be levied in these circumstances. I also direct pregnant women should be permitted to make formal complaints to the police if a driver is smoking in their presence. For both offences, penalty points should be added to a motorist's driving record if the allegations are proven or witnessed first hand by police officers.
I'm pleased I got that off my chest. So can you.
As an ex smoker I know what it was like to quit. It's hard. If you are a smoker, why don't you quit today? NOW. If you don't you will probably die and not see the historic event in December 2012. Get on the www.12-12-12.org/2.220 website for help now. If you continue to smoke I direct you to do so considerately and to be aware of the ills of passive smoking on others.
I commend Patrick Reynolds of the Sovereign tribe of California, whose
family started the tobacco empire of the same name. Following the death of a
loved one from lung cancer, Patrick dumped his personal shareholding and now
tours the World teaching people how and why they should stop smoking
tobacco. He is a frequent guest on American TV News channels. His
organisations specialise in tobacco prevention for youth.(Refer to
Finally, I direct all forms of tobacco advertising be banned.
