Tried to say this in the 'ALL THE ICE WILL GO' thread but people still seem to think politicians will do things because it is a good idea.

You have to make them want to. To make them want to, you have to offer more than the people who want them not to.

Complaining they have not done enough is not giving them that, it is the opposite so they will not do what you want.

They definitely put the dope in dopamine.

Isn't dopamine reuptake the basis of every addiction? Why would power be any different?

It's probably why Ibogaine research will continue to be downplayed or blocked outright.

Exactly. And the way you get what you want from an addict is...?

So how do we get politicians to do the right thing?

People will get this eventually.

If we put thier heads in specially designed apparatuses, and swing a really big cleaver at it, I bet we could harvest all the dopamine we want.

Or just more sacks of money. But who has sacks full of money anymore? All I have is a sock full of quarters. Would that work?

Nah, I'd rather just guess. The fact it's in all caps and the context pretty-much tells me what it is. I can suss out Cyrillic, but only know about 100 words in Russian. It's amazing what you can learn in 5 or 6 hours on Rosetta Stone.

But if I had that much money, I'd have f*ck-you money and probably wouldn't give a shiat about what politicians do in the first place.
