Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British-born philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience.

Born in Chislehurst, England, he moved to the United States in 1938 and began Zen training in New York. Pursuing a career, he attended Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, where he received a master’s degree in theology. Watts became an Episcopal priest in 1945, then left the ministry in 1950 and moved to California, where he joined the faculty of the American Academy of Asian Studies.

A New Documentary Film “Why Not Now!” with Alan Watts is now available along with the “Essential Alan Watts” in a biographic two-DVD set.

Who makes weapons?

Statistically, this is an easy one. The U.S. Russia France Not-So-Great-Britain, and of course China! The top five arms makers are these countries; they are also known as the U.N. Security Council.

from the good folks at wikipedia.org (in green)

The members represent the countries considered the victors of World War II,[1] including France, which was one of the overrun countries of Europe that was liberated through the efforts of Canada, the Free French Forces, the United Kingdom and the United States. Each of the permanent members has power to veto, enabling them to prevent the adoption of any “substantive” draft Council resolution, regardless of the level of international support for the draft. 

Who distributes them?

see above culprits. The next eight or ten countries who make and distribute weapons of every sort, in market share, begins with Israel. Is it any wonder? They are in the war business, like the U.S. China France Britain and Russia. Just at a smaller scale.

Who uses them?

Haters everywhere. Criminal Scum, Gangsters, Police, Soldiers, Sailors, henchmen of every sort. Organized and funded by the flat world religions, with the exception of China. They are a world unto themselves, in sheer size; they are hungry and we have the food.

Ahisma is the only solution.

Anandamides

copy-female-flowers.jpgAnandamide, also known as N-arachidonoylethanolamine or AEA, is an endogenous cannabinoid neurotransmitter. The name is taken from the Sanskrit word (and Hinduistic religious term) ananda, which means “joy, bliss, delight”, and amide.[1][2] It is synthesized from N-arachidonoyl phosphatidylethanolamine by multiple pathways.[3] It is degraded primarily by the fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) enzyme, which converts anandamide into ethanolamine and arachidonic acid. As such, inhibitors of FAAH lead to elevated anandamide levels and are being pursued for therapeutic use.[4][5

Dozens smoke pot outside N.J. Statehouse during ‘Spring Smoke Out’ rally for marijuana legalization

The ‘Spring Smoke Out’ rally grew in intensity as it progressed through East State Street, culminating with the demonstration outside the Statehouse that included a few dozen people lighting marijuana joints in protest at 4:20 p.m.

For former Rhode Island gubernatorial candidate Ann Armstrong, the issue was less about individual freedoms and more about religious rights. A sacramental oil called “kaneh-bos” is mentioned in Exodus 30:23, she said, which she believes is the Hebrew word for “cannabis.” The oil mentioned in the Bible is also described as a cure for similar ailments to those that medicinal marijuana is being used for today, she said.

The Civil War and the Corruptive Effects of Religious Absolutism – The Atlantic

ALLEN GUELZO AUG 23, 2015

If there is one sober lesson Americans seem to be taking out of the bathos of the Civil War sesquicentennial, it’s the folly of a nation allowing itself to be dragged into the war in the first place. After all, from 1861 to 1865 the nation pledged itself to what amounted to a moral regime change, especially concerning race and slavery—only to realize that it had no practical plan for implementing it. No wonder that two of the most important books emerging from the Sesquicentennial years—by Harvard president Drew Faust, and Yale’s Harry Stout—questioned pretty frankly whether the appalling costs of the Civil War could be justified by its comparatively meager results. No wonder, either, that both of them were written in the shadow of the Iraq War, which was followed by another reconstruction that suffered from the same lack of planning.
