"most of your adult life"

I've only been involved in drug policy advocacy since 2013, and I pretty much pulled out of that work last year.  Since 2015 I've been in a different job than I was when I was last here.  So even if what you said was true about my role (which of course it isn't), it's actually been a rather small portion of my entire, working adult life. 

And even then, I ran a campaign, I lost, but it was only in my state, which was already decriminalized...

So yeah...no.

So, I guess now, my Discordianism is more about self-preservation than trying to address The Machine and The System. 
I just want to make it out alive with a smile on my face!

Hasn't Discordia always been just a way to save face towards yourself, to pretend you've been something more than a shill for the War on Drugs? It doesn't seem you've ever been worried about "the machine" nor "the system", and youve always been an opportunistic slime bag, a dog dancing to get his bacon.

If im recalling things wrongly, everyone and anyone feel free to correct me, for I really envy Roger's vindictive memory that burns like a thousand suns, and personally lack that capacity.

He started out okay...But then he got bit by the funding bug a few years later and started babbling about how marijuana leads to krokodil (this is an exaggeration, but not by much) and how throwing a 19 year old into prison for 26 years for a quarter pound of ditch weed was justifiable.

He basically became his job.  That happens to lots of people.  I have heard it referred to as "salesman's disease" or "Cutco casualty."  AKA "company man."

Its very sad indeed, when a person gets an ideological brain parasite lodged into their brain just cause they wanted to earn a buck or two; its even sadder when the host starts defending the parasite.

To be fair to RWHN here, most anti-parasitic treatments are fucking awful. Get dewormed and then tell me you wouldn’t put up a fight next time.

He’s just gotten a whole dose of the old Stockholm over it is all.
