Re: “How Should Burlington Police Its Cops? In the Street, Activists Say

We obviously need to eliminate the police entirely, and obviously to eliminate the police we need to end the drug war. You're not helping anyone with drug addiction, at all, and you're killing people both directly and indirectly. Police haven't always existed and won't exist forever. The first police were slave patrols, then riot police to put down popular insurrection, just a couple of centuries ago.. Police have always been against the people and always will be. The police should be abolished and replaced with mediation and peacemaking.

Re: “'Neighborly' Will Let Burlington Residents Invest in Their City

And you don't see anything amiss about "a path for democratic involvement" with a minimum investment of $1000? That strikes you as "democratic" somehow? Um...

Re: “Container Murals Promote New Recycling Law

Recycling is ridiculous bullshit that is saving nothing except the profits of corporations that would be endangered by actual reductions in consumption. Nothing is being recycled, there is no recycling, it's just downcycled, it's just shredded and used for a moment to stuff it into other trash-- there is no beautiful harmonious Earthy cycle of recycling, it's a lie. It's all as ultimately lacking in consequence as the pathetically "at least 25 percent recycled paint" used in this propaganda for it, propaganda which is of course utterly necessary, as indeed without the constant support of propaganda no one at all would simply come on their own to the conclusion that this process makes any sense, no one at all would think to themselves, "it's perfectly fine if we extract everything and poison everything and enslave everyone as long as we also do it again with at least 25 percent the same stuff as last time, that should fix it," no, this is the sort of thing you must be constantly informed and reinformed how sensible and orderly it all is lest you ever accidentally trust your senses to the contrary. This whole show is an intentional obscene nonsensical distraction. Recycling is nothing but a fairy bedtime story where capitalism doesn't inherently destroy the earth.

Re: “Burlington 'Mama Bear' Tells Drug Dealers to Go 'Elsewhere'

Obviously the only solution to this problem is legal heroin, for instance prescribing heroin to addicts. Don't you think it's somewhat neglectful to talk about this false solution, to even point out obliquely that this solution can't possibly work, and yet also to pointedly fail to mention the only possible thing that would work. Would you actually like to stop this problem or are you having fun with it somehow.
