Before releasing them from Guantanamo, give them
medical treatment which will cause auto-suppression of
violence every time they consider it.
Same for arrested PETA or Greenpeace activists .
In the third step, this treatment should be given to the
distributors of violent internet content
and to producers of
violent movies and porn.
It will cause a change in their outlook on the world and
bring them to become peaceful Hippy environmentalists.
Almost the last stage of this process will be the "last world
war", where the US army attacks all other armies and,
rather than killing the enemy, treats the POWs with this
cocktail of medication and computerized automated
Once spread globally, and after checking that all violence
in the world has been contained, the final secret plan will
be to treat the soldiers themselves with this. Starting with
the Generals and continuing down to the last soldier.
Normal people wth no violent record or no combat
experience will be excluded.
Freedom of speech will continue, but everything will be
much more fun, with no anger during the arguments, and
much more humor. Public demonstrations will have no
violence in them, parents will leave their kids out without
the fear of having them kidnapped, and school bullies
along with mean school-bus drivers will become a thing of
Formerly bad people who exploited others, leading or
supporting dictatorships, will step down on their own, and
everybody will do their best to cooperate with each other.
Rich people will go out on undercover tours with the poor,
and will become compassionate, doing their best to make
Most importantly: Drug addicts will lose their addiction to
the old escapist opiate drugs, and become functioning
members of the communities where they live, countering
the migration of whole populations from country to
country and advancing the well-being of what now are
called "3rd world countries" to become advanced, free and
with equal rights.
Straightforward means to this end

Meds for violent and aggressive behavior
[pashute, Aug 28 2016]
Meds and aggression - a negative article
[pashute, Aug 28 2016]
||Not to mention that all religious zealots will change their
outlook to become tolerant members of society, re-
assessing their former beliefs and changing them to a
much more encompassing and empathic world-view.
||Needless to say that extremism against women and in
particular little girls will disappear, and even the
territorial arguments between nations (such as the Pali-
Israeli conflict, actually a continuation of the Arab-Israeli
or more correctly put Muslim-Jewish conflict) would
easily be solved, once everybody accepts everyone else,
and no-one is scared anymore of sudden violent actions
by the others.
||This might be "magic" if you don't specify the medication
that can do what you describe.
||//cocktail of medication and computerized
automated behavioral therapy//
||One of the many problems with this idea is, as
[Vernon] pointed out, the use of magic.
||Aresenic works well for this. Sort of...
||Lithium in the water supply might be easier.
||What you describe is not psychotherapy. Moreover, just to get my two
pen'orth in on this as a former activist:. PETA are not radical. They are
in fact deeply sexist and seem to base most of their publicity on porn,
and Greenpeace, meaning the organisation which stole the name
rather than the likes of Greenpeace London, which was the real
Greenpeace, are similarly authoritarian tinkerers. Both are part of the
||//medical treatment which will cause auto-suppression of violence //
||[Treon]'s crashing at [pashute]'s pad
||// Aresenic works well for this. Sort of... //
||But isn't Ares the god of war?
||Couches to the left of them, Couches to the right of them. Drove the 600 in clean respectable Volvo s.
||No. The problem with [bungston]'s solution - using music
legally allow all drugs (or at least grass), is not the way to
go because the violent groups do not take the treatment
when they are active in their violent mode.
||See link [Meds for violent and aggressive behavior] for an
actual non-magical solution. (Answer to all the other
||See my second link [Meds and aggression - a negative
article] for an article saying a. That there is known
behvioral treatment for aggressive behavior. b. That
there are many medicines which could and do alter
aggressive behavior but that many of their side effects
are not known, the actual way of treating with any of
them has not yet been thoroughly researched, and that
some of them may be fatal to the recipient. In the case
of war or eminent war I still think its a better idea than
allowing a conventional war to continue, all the more so,
in the case of openly menacing terrorist organizations,
and unconventional warfare.
||What [lurch] said I don't get. Who or what is [Treon]?
||[Treon] was another name used by a halfbakery poster who currently
has the moniker [beanangel]. Just look at his user page, or search the
HB for the word "happylong".
||(Your sanity is not guaranteed after looking at any of that stuff)
||Wait, is that the same guy that was spamming HB for a
while? I seem to remember a different name. Maybe its
better not to bring that up.
||Nah, spammers come and spammers go, but [beanangel] is like the
planet's core - we may not be able to figure out much about him, but
he's always there.
