Image of No victim, no crime: medical marijuana

Though I personally prefer Henry David Thoreau ("That government is best which governs not at all"), in honor of Martin Luther King, an advocate of non-violent civil disobedience...

Here's a moral premise for you to consider: when there is no victim, there is no crime. Do you agree? (And before you go there, no - "society" is not an individual and cannot be considered a "victim." A collective cannot be a victim - only an individual.) For example, take this US New Hampshire common-sense thinking "peace officer" (as opposed to most brain-dead "law enforcement/police officers") who is refusing to arrest medical marijuana users. He refuses to enforce what is clearly an immoral law. If only more cops would take such a moral stance on this and other laws, we'd have a much more peaceful world.

About braincrave


We all admire beauty, but the mind ultimately must be stimulated for maximum arousal. Longevity in relationships cannot occur without a meeting of the minds. And that is what Braincrave is: a dating venue where minds meet. Learn about the thoughts of your potential match on deeper topics... topics that spawn your own insights around what you think, the choices you make, and the actions you take.

We are a community of men and women who seek beauty and stimulation through our minds. We find ideas, education, and self-improvement sexy. We think intelligence is hot. But Braincrave is more than brains and I.Q. alone. We are curious. We have common sense. We value and offer wisdom. We experiment. We have great imaginations. We devour literacy. We are intellectually honest. We support and encourage each other to be better.

You might be lonely but you aren't alone.

Sep, 2017 update: Although Braincrave resulted in two confirmed marriages, the venture didn't meet financial targets. Rather than updating our outdated code base, we've removed all previous dating profiles and retained the articles that continue to generate interest. Moving to valME.io's platform supports dating profiles (which you are welcome to post) but won't allow typical date-matching functionality (e.g., location proximity, attribute similarity).

The Braincrave.com discussion group on Second Life was a twice-daily intellectual group discussions typically held at 12:00 PM SLT (PST) and 7:00 PM SLT. The discussions took place in Second Life group chat but are no longer formally scheduled or managed. The daily articles were used to encourage the discussions.
