“One has a moral responsibililty to disobey unjust laws.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
You express a great deal of anxiety over our willingness to break laws. This is certainly a legitimate concern. Since we so diligently urge people to obey the Supreme Court’s decision of 1954 outlawing segregation in public schools, at first glance it may seem paradoxical for us consciously to break laws. One may ask, “How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?” The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with Saint Augustine that “an unjust law is no law at all.” –Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Letter from Birmingham Jail” April 16, 1963
Dr. King was not a senator, not a governor, not a state legislator, not a district sheriff, leader or town legislator. He was a clergyman working for Jesus and one who had confidence in self filtration before direct activity, one who cited any semblance of St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas and Martin Luther, one who contrasted the social liberties battle and the missions of both Old Testament prophets and New Testament Apostles.
He was one who, He was the one and only who if were alive today, may be advised to let religion well enough alone for his talk, even by individuals who concurred with him about the presence of treachery/injustice and the objective of desegregation.
Dr. King, as a religious, singular nullifier, gambled more than any chose state or nearby authority by declining to acknowledge foul play. Chosen authorities who invalidate are not the ones focused for capture, yet the individuals who decline to comply with a crooked law independently or as a component of a gathering face that hazard day by day and are just as bad as the one who makes these kinds of laws legal. Regardless of this danger, he kept on doing what he accepted to be correct.
Through rough reactions from his adversaries, detainment, and even demise, he earned the privilege to sing the profound of old, “Free at last! Free free at last! Express gratitude toward God Almighty, we’re free at last!”

Austrialian Experts to “Drug Test” without Government Testing
Do you think we as tax payers of this country should have the right to know if a pill will kill you before we take it?
An article just came dated 1 March 2016, named “Australian Experts to Drug Test Without Government Testing,” and I must share this news and if street drugs can be tested, why can’t prescribed medications be tested also just in case?
Would you have to be a scientist to know the results, or do our bodies let us know when anything is bad for us while we are still alive?
Can we find out what our famiily have taken after they have died?
Would we dare do anything like this in the United States? Why or why not?
Having said this two Australian drug experts have announced that they are willing to break the country’s strict laws against drug support in order to commence pill testing trials at music festivals.
They want to test street drugs to see if they are poison and many of all ages who attend music festivals, etc. may indulge and need to know why they are dangerous.
Are any drugs safe take whether they be street drugs or prescribed medications?
PMA is only found by testing the actual pill itself before taking, or after it is too late and then only can be seen and found in the post mortem state..
According to sources of article in the Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/science/sifting-the-evidence/2013/oct/07/pma-ecstasy-club-drug-deaths-mdma
Well the Anti-Drug side will simply say “Don’t take it in the first place” however like it or not drugs and music culture go hand in hand. The easiest way would be to say “well half the issue is people don’t know what they are taking.”
“Please note that most drug related deaths of late have been due to chemicals such as PMA that is used instead of MDMA unknown to the user”, Read what is PMA here.
Again, could this also go for prescribed medications too, i.e. antidepressants, muscle relaxers, etc.
Dr. Wodak talked about their arrangements with Fairfax Media,
“We are going to do this, specialists, examiners who know how to work the (testing) machines and companion questioners who can decipher the experimental results and disclose to individuals why the medication they purchased is talcum powder or profoundly dangerous. The thought is to spare lives. I am readied to infringe upon the law to spare youngsters’ lives.”
Dr. Caldicott expounded, expressing that the thought was exceptionally basic:
“We need to run a trial at a spot where everybody is utilizing sedates at any rate. It’s the ideal opportunity for our government officials and chose delegates to make up for lost time with what the greater part of folks need for their kids, which is for them to return home safe.”
Dr. Wodak and Dr. Caldicott are stunned and befuddled at the absence of backing from police and government authorities. The present strategy has not gained any ground in decreasing the measure of medication utilize and medication related wounds or passings. Actually, prior this year, the Premier of New South Wales announced he would take a gander at banning music celebrations in Australia to forestall drug related passings and hospitalizations, taking the zero-resilience way to deal with the amazing.
Could this be done with prescribed medication to show folk if prescribed medications are safe for us to ingest?
Have you noticed how many people are dying lately, and it is happening way too much and after research have found many to have been on prescribed medication?
Does anybody care what happens to our lives even while we are alive or is it that we really believe taking any drug whether it be street or prescribed is the way we want to live for the rest of our lives?
Do you believe that you must be on a pill for the rest of your life be street drug or prescribed drugs?
Are families interested in finding out what their loved ones or even themselves are taking when taking prescribed medications?
What if you could test your prescribed medications before you took them?
Wouldn’t side effects be enough to make you believe, that just maybe you should not be taking certain drugs even prescribed drugs?
So many people are dying by not knowing contraditions of pills, all pills, prescribed drugs, etc.
Look at the so many people in the music industry who have recently died, and do we really know what they have died from?
PEOPLE IT IS TIME TO TAKE ACTION and demand to know what you are taking before you take any drugs and this goes for prescribed drugs too!
I am still trying to figure out what ever happened to “First Do No Harm,” and I know this article is about street drugs, but any drugs that are bad for you should be considered street drugs if you ask me and should be tested too before we take them!
