A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace

BY JOHN PERRY BARLOW
Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather.

MAJOR Upcoming AA Event!!!

I’ve been truly (no, really--I REALLY have been!) inspired and motivated by recent posts made by “Super Sponsor” (a/k/a Stupor Stepper). It’s bordering on a “spiritual awakening”... well, at least a “spiritual experience” or maybe something of a lower “spiritual but not religious" grade... WTF--at the very least, I think I’m having an emotional experience!

If all you need from AA is the 12 Steps, why did Bill Wilson write the Big Book and 12&12?

Bill Wilson wrote the Big Book because he already ordered the cheapest thickest paper he could.

Theft, Pearl Road: On Nov. 29, a woman called to say her ex-drug dealer appeared at her AA meeting. The man forced her into his car and stole her money.

Apparently the guy was collecting old debts. Police are investigating.

Hey Orange, can we have a moderator yet?

All we got at present is Janus's sh*t show, I'm over it, finding new & creative ways, daily to tell her to get Fk'd is wasted on someone so brain dead. If it's not her, it's some other troll.

Where does the term "Alcoholics Anonymous Classes" come from and who started it?

Normally when you hear about "Alcoholics Anonymous Classes" it relates to a judge or magistrate ordering someone before them to go to a certain number of AA meetings or they will be sanctioned by loss of liberty, licenses or both. The prospect hunting bible of Alcoholics Anonymous commonly called "The Big Book" does not mention classes. Where did the term come from and why has the misconception been propagated in the press?

Should Antidepressants Be Banned?

Here is an article about the latest findings regarding the role antidepressants play in causing suicide:

Why is AA Affiliating With the Courts? We have all heard it before, MY AA Group doesn't sign court cards, yet they advertize that they go to Jails, Prisons and Court Systems looking for AA Prospects.

TheFix has picked up on Court mandated (coerced) AA prospects and AA Zealots are claiming that their groups handle things differently(https://www.thefix.com/ask-expert-why-aa-affiliating-courts). The only thing is the "literature" from the Alcoholics Anonymous Interchurch Center on 475 Riverside Drive, NYC directs them how to hunt for canned prospects and how to coerce courts on how to send them an ample supply of new AA recruits constantly.

Just Saying Yes to the Politics of Drugs

The New York Times has an interesting article about the political candidates' new willingness to talk about drugs and alcohol:

East Enders

I was listening to the BBC News channel this morning and apparently British Soaps pride themselves on dealing with taboo or difficult subjects. Postpartum Psychosis was quoted and has been dealt with recently by the soap East Enders.

David Bowie and Abstinence

Here is an interview from 1999. It is about 16 minutes long, but if you move forward to 4.55 minutes into the interview you can hear him give his opinions about the importance of abstinence. It is pretty hard to watch this and still conclude that Bowie didn't consider himself to be an alcoholic or that he wasn't, at that stage a least, a member of a 12 Step Program: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiK7s_0tGsg
