this guy thumbed his nose at the DEA and the US federal government and he ended up losing... I think he could have served his cause more efficiently if he would have kept his head down, and kept on doing what he was getting away with.
sorry operator1. ill dissagree with you on this note. he didnt end up losing. you are only seeing the immediate short term situation.
keeping our heads down is what keeps us in our current mess. heads down time is definately over. its push push push time. if ghandi kept his head down idia would still be brittish. if mandela did the same he'd have died in jail or of aids in some shanty town...
hes playing the game. hes taking them on. us stoners really have to take on the law. united man. many may not like him, but hes doing the right thing. hes bringing the fight into the public arena.
if gay people kept their heads down thered still be unjust anti gay laws...
alot of stoners keep their heads down because they are scared of short term consequences, not realising that in the long run they will win. and any short term effects will ultimately be worth it. marks pretty darned brave.. a little headstrong maybe. but hes got ***** man. because of him theres discussion, its gone public, its on tv... many peple that otherwise wouldnt give a sht are realising ' hey, this is unjust!'. thats what hes doing.
... so how would he be fighting better by keeping his head down and becoming like arjan exactly?
