This two-part essay addresses the prohibition of psychedelics in connection to the yoking of modern minds, making an impassioned and compelling argument for the freedom to explore one’s consciousness through the use of entheogens. In Part 1, Jesso examines freedom of thought and the domesticating forces in modern civilization. Part 2 builds a case for the responsible use of entheogens as a tool in the deconstruction and re-imagination of our restricting and outmoded power structures. The complete Entheogens and the Mind of Society is available in print from The Blasted Tree Store, and you can read both parts of the essay online using the links below.
- Part 1: Freedom of Consciousness and the Cage of the Civilized Mind
- Part 2: The Truth Behind Prohibition and the Potential of Entheogens
