War on Drugs Creates More Crime – Equal Money & DIP is Solution

When the Government of a country ‘declares War on Drugs’ it will try and prevent the production and especially import of Drugs within the borders of its country.
How does this practically affect the ‘free market forces’ in the economic system?
Prices are set in relation to supply / demand. If there is a high demand for a particular product or service, the people that are ‘demanding’ this, will ‘compete’ with each other in the form of accepting higher price rates. The ‘value’ of any given product/service will also be dependent on the availability of the particular good.

So – if we look at the scenario before War was declared on drugs, you’d have a particular stream of supply coming into the country and according to the demand it will be set on a price accordingly.
Because the demand for drugs is high, and the fact that drugs is a ‘habit forming’ product – the demand for drugs is very inelastic (inelastic = there will not be a big change in demand if one changes the price of the product, elastic would be if you for instance increase the price of a product and it has a drastic effect on the demand of the product  - this is not the case with drugs which means that they can pretty much ask any price and the consumer will try and pay that price).

So now the Government has declared War on Drugs and ‘less’ drugs comes into the country. This implies that the supply has diminished which means that the product is now more ‘scarce’ while the demand remains exactly the same.

This ‘supply shortage’ in turn translates into a ‘higher value’ of the product and the Prices go sky high. But now the demand is still exactly the same. But if one now wants to get hands on drugs, they have to come up with more money which results in more crime!
So nothing has been solved at all, at best things have just gotten worse because they exact same condition is still present but now there’s extra crime happening to be able to pay up for the drugs.
The truth is that there is no possible solution within our current economic system to truly effectively deal with a problem such as Drug Abuse & Profiteering. Because ‘Profiteering’ is what our current Economic System is all about and it implies that for someone to win there must be someone losing. In essence you could say that our System Promotes Drug Abuse & Profiteering because it uses the exact methods that defines our System.
So if you have a look at Drugs there are two main points that come to the fore in terms of consideration. The first one is on the side of the consumer and pertains to the reason of Drug Consumption. The other point lies on the side of the supplier whom is obviously in the Game because of Profit.
If we look at reasons why people use drugs we can boil it down to a general ‘dissatisfaction’ with their life. Whether it is boredom, depression, wanting to have ‘fun’ (indicating a lack of fun and adventure) – it is always some sort of dissatisfaction or lack. So if we want to ‘tackle’ the demand, we have to take on this reason, this dissatisfaction. The most effective proposal to deal with such a point would be an Education Process such as the Desteni I Process. The Desteni I Process deals with one’s inner reality and pushes for the taking of self-responsibility and living a fulfilling life.
This would very effectively deal with Drug Addiction as has already been proven by many who have walked the Desteni I Process. A list of reference is given at the end of this post. Check out their blogs to see how they deal with their reality and work towards a fulfilling, self-empowering and satisfactory life for themselves.

If we now look at the other side of the coin where we are dealing with making money – the only effective Solution is the immediate implementation of an Equal Money System. Why? Because our Current Money System does not provide for all Equally. It is a System out of Balance that provides for the few who have in abundance and ensures that this abundance only grows for which the majority who do not have “pay the price”.
Those who do not have live a miserable life while the rich live on their expense. This gives those who are in an unfortunate position an incentive to either a) become drug consumers to numb the pain of their existence or to b) to use drugs as a product to sell so they can get money to survive within this world. This need then turns into Greed as the fear of ending up in a position with no support it just to horrid to even think of.
An Equal Money System in contrast, is a System of care and everyone’s physical needs are taken care of. There is no condition of survival prevailing where people find the need to exploit others in order to survive. In addition the profit motive is taken away as Profit will not be non-existent within an Equal Money System which eliminates the enticement to start a drug business. There is no need to turn to drugs to numb you life experience as you are supported to LIVE and explore life instead. Thus – the Equal Money System dealing with one’s external reality, deals with the Money point whilst the DIP deals with one’s inner reality and self-empowerment. Together they are the perfect team =).

Here are but a few who stand as a living example of actual absolute change within stopping drug consumption & addiction. Visit their blogs as a living testimony of how they will change into their lives.  To find out more about an Equal Money System visit: www.equalmoney.org  .
