Transhumanist

NOW YOU’RE A DRUG…

Yesterday I blogged about the implications of a recent court decision involving Monsanto and some organic farmers who had brought suit against the company to protect their fields from contamination with its "products". There, I intimated that the logical end result of recent trends in American "jurisprudence" (and I almost gagged by glorifying the corruption of the system with that term) would be to gradually and inexorably transform the human being itself into a commodity subject to regulation by the federal bureaucracy. Well, surprise surprise, it's already happened. According to the following article, the Food and Drug (Mis)Administration has declared your stem cells a drug, and subject to federal regulation:

FDA’s New Claim: “Your Body Is a Drug—and We Have the Authority to Regulate It!”

Note that the interstate commerce clause is, once again, predictably the camel's nose in the door to the ability to regulate your body. But now note this statement:

"The Centeno-Schultz Medical Clinic takes your blood and bone marrow, puts it into a centrifuge machine that separates the stem cells, and cultures it to get more cells before a doctor puts them back in your body to repair damaged tissue. The FDA states that when the stem cells are cultured, they become FDA-regulated drugs. The clinic has argued numerous times that stem cells aren’t drugs because they are components of the patient’s bone marrow from his or her own body.

"The FDA says otherwise: Stem cells, like other medical products that are intended to treat, cure, or prevent 'disease, generally require FDA approval before they can be marketed. At this time, there are no licensed stem cell treatments.' There they go again, saying that components of your body are drugs and they have the authority to regulate them! It’s the only way the agency can claim that adult stem cell therapy is within FDA’s purview."

Now let's add to this mix the sort of logic used by agribusiness companies trying to protect their patents on their tinkered-with seeds: they have argued, and even sued, farmers for illegally planting seeds in their fields, when such seeds have either been blown onto their fields or dropped in bird droppings. The intent of the logic is clear: whether one willfully plants such seeds, or whether they simply land on one's field through natural processes, the modified environment allows the corporations to sue the farmer who had no intention of planting their modified seeds.

Now let's adapt that argument: suppose, through eating their swill, genetic mutations are introduced into a person and/or their offspring that otherwise would not have occurred. By the FDA's logic, you would become a drug, subject to regulation, and by the corporations' logic, intellectual property... The new technologies, in other words, are being used as the occasion for legal power grabs over the individual sovereign person, and to reduce them to a new form of serfdom to the federal hydra and its corporate masters. And as Dr. de Hart and I point out in our upcoming book, Transhumanism: A Grimoire , this isn't even half of the alchemical transformations that are being planned. But in this case, it is the legal fiction of the law that is being used for the alchemy...

  1. chaseing tails here,
    the reasons for it becomeing under the drug terms is shere lazyness to make a new set of guidelines specific to that of stem cells
    same reasons why other human products are listed there

  2. Slavery has been the foundation of society millennia so this only a new form of it even that. It is only a rebranding of good old slavery nothing more/ This is only our masters cracking their whips as usual.

  3. SSNaga,

    How have they done this in your opinion. At death we pass from this reality to another, we are spiritual beings that have bodies but this is not the only “medium.”

    1. There is much red-tape involved… should have the “Herds” ready for Processing shortly after the paperwork is completed. Mouthful of ‘Hey!’ anyone? Anyone? Products keep getting more sophisticated… but huemanity, the humanimal, has Always been a Product of this Earthly Gar-Den. They are “ApeX.”

    Before too long the corporate-personhood(not a human being) will have the newly minted fiction-person(a real human being) as their legal chattel; in a world where freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength, & war is peace.

  5. SSNaga says “… They HAVE ALREADY Arranged to Dispossess the human of their Energetic Rights & Potentials. The Afterlife is Also “Their Field of ‘Play’.” Ignorance (& Innocence) Is Bliss. Enjoy… (It gets Worse.)”

    What to say about someone who is as smug and arrogant as you… you don’t have any idea what real energetic potential is… but if your purpose here is to scare the humans with your scary wordS, well then, I am shaking in my boots.

    kind regards,

    Imelda

  6. As the global manipulaters tighten their grip on the world and continue to constrict the immortal and infinite scope of free will that is most sacred to the seen and unseen, they will become more and more confident with each successful inch. Little do they know that there is a critical point built into intelligent design to remedy this inevetable and forseeable transgression to the most sacred. They are fast approaching this point of crittical constriction that will lead up to their swift and violent destruction. The future of humanity will be determined by the quality of the wisdom that survives these events; and the choices and abilities of the survivers individually to transfer their consciousness into new forms of interactions with eachother based on wisdom, knowledge, and testing rather than mindless obedience to the same lies and blind faiths of before.

  7. “legal fiction” hmm…This haunts of the idea of the synthetic ascription between God and man as it relates to the protestant notion of justification by faith. You are righteous, well you aren’t analytically, but you are, wait no you aren’t: you’re dung. Hmmm…

  8. Looks like for a person to be a drug, a part of that person needs to be removed and processed in a lab with the intention of applying that processed person part to the same person.

    Don’t think the logic of “so now you’re a drug” works.

    A is not equal to B, so even though B equals C, C is not equal to A.

    This same point can be done with sets.

    This in no way means that the treatment of humans as widgets is not a recurring problem. Businesses in general are a huge offender.

  9. THE HYDRA ~ “The history of the planet Earth demonstrates one thing to us. It shows that those in power will test those who are not as powerful. They will use intolerable situations to see how much the less powerful will take before they wake up due to the pain it causes. One of the ways this is done in your Society is through creative lawmaking. It is the process to retain and usurp individual responsibility and place it under the dominion of Society. The more that the numbness has crept in through the enactment of elaborate and comnfusing distinctions, the more difficult it is to recover one’s Freedom. They know that they had been successful in turning the human race into an unmanageable mass that knows its prescribed place in the safety of Society. The sooner the human race wakes up, the sooner the slavemasters must withdraw to reset their strategy. The slavemasters have been defeated many times, but it is a many-headed beast. As soon as you chop one head off another attacks from your weak side. They have planned it this way over the centuries of a passage of mythology that I have discussed with you and tried to elucidate for you.” (“Scales of the Dragon,” chptr. 14, ‘The Fragmenting Planet,’ Mark Gershon aka Avendar Dragon) … Yes, Virginia, there is a Hydra (insert ‘Scream’ here).

  10. Dr. Scott D. de Hart

    Thanks Joseph for bringing this to our attention as well as the implications. It is staggering that within a few months of completing the Transhumanism book it already seems like a 2nd Volume is necessary to deal with the rapid spreading of what we were only touching on as where it was to lead. Well, I guess we can add that to the list of “future” books … a list that has now become so long maybe we should publish the list of future books as the next book instead! This is insanity!

  11. “But in this case, it is the legal fiction of the law that is being used for the alchemy…”

    “Legal fiction”.. now that there’s a pair of words that hides a vast subject. 😀

    But just for the record: legal != lawful

  12. No Offence, but what I perceive are Materialistic Concerns in the expressed opinions & feelings of “the commentors assembled” on this blogsite. “Be in the world, but not of the world,” is a meaningful quote here. Understandably, the materialist can ‘see’ Only the material, regardless that “atoms & subatomic particles” are invisible, but “still material.” … OK, so far, so ‘good.’ For Your Information, the upper echelons of the Elite & Cohorts are Not thusly Delimited by such “materialism.” They HAVE ALREADY Arranged to Dispossess the human of their Energetic Rights & Potentials. The Afterlife is Also “Their Field of ‘Play’.” Ignorance (& Innocence) Is Bliss. Enjoy… (It gets Worse.)

  13. Bio-politics?

    I just finished reading a section of Agamben’s book – “The Musselmann” in his “Remnants of Auschwitz” where he at the end speaks of an ABSOLUTE BIOPOLITICAL SPACE! He further states, “Death, at this point, is a simple epiphenomenon.” (I think he means after a human has been stripped or reduced to some kind of limbo between human and inhuman – death doesn’t really matter?)

    I think this article of yours is on the same page with actions taken seventy years ago only now it’s on a Global Scale.

    I hope not!
