by oil addiction feeds war

The united states is a nation addicted to the needle of petrochemical industry, our occupation of Iraq feeds this constant crude oil craving..
The petroleum from Iraq pumped through Halliburton finds its way to the refineries of Houston Texas where many products are formed from crude oil, from petrochemical plastics to gasoline, pesticides and pharmaceuticals used by psychiatrists to silence dissenting activists labeled paranoid..
..similar to Nazi Germany where the "mentally unfit" where forced to wear black triangles in the concentration camps..
When we discuss petroleum addiction as a problem of every American, we also recognize the various industries that profit from the petrochemical addiction. While the occupation of Iraq continues (as long as there is oil to be pumped), the lives lost by both young American soldiers and Iraqi women/children are tallied up by the CEO/execs of corporations like DuPont/Dow/Exxon/Novartis/etc.. which they balance with the increase in financial gains from so much free petroleum..
The byproducts of crude oil/petroleum feed the petrochemical and pharmaceutical industry equally well. Any percieved disorder such as "road rage" (low level carbon monoxide poisoning from inhalation of combusted petroleum exhaust) has a petrochemical cure from your local psychiatrist/pharmaceutical peddler partner..
When we look at the parallels between the industrial powers of Nazi Germany and America, both had a centralized economy based on petroleum. Rockefeller, Ford, Hitler, Prescott Bush, DuPont, IG Farben and other industrial giants were trading information across the Atlantic while the so-called "War to end all Wars" was proceeding in the mass media. American heroism post WW2 masked the collusion and funding between Bush, Rockefeller and Hitler. The push for asphalt (another crude oil byproduct) paving in Germany for the "autobahn" occurred almost simultaneously with suburbanization and freeway paving here in america. According to these industrial giants, better facism than communism, and the KPD (Kommunist Partei Deutschland) was burned out of Germany after the 1933 Reichstag fire as the American left was attacked after 9/11..
We are a mobile nation dependent on the petrochemical industry for so many products, but there was always another option, though this would not have made as much money for the centralized industrialists like Rockefeller (Standard Oil, Esso, Exxon)..
Hemp can be grown and processed into biodiesel, biodegradable plastic and food on a local level. This distributes the wealth to the growers and processing can be done locally, it is harder to monopolize than petroleum. The cellulose from hemp (77 percent) is enough for most plastic products, and they can be recycled back into food for the next crop. This creates a cycle of sustainablilty where the hemp farmer can maintain themselves. no one individual will become exceptionally wealthy from hemp, but the local community will benefit and prosper from a local economy..
