Possession and use of free will – already banned in the US and most European countries – set to become illegal in UK
The home secretary, Theresa May, has defied her own expert advisers and announced a decision to ban independent thought, a mild stimulant that is traditionally used by Britain’s Perceptive, Cognizant and Thinking communities.
May said that autonomous thinking would become a class C drug after warning that since the US and other European countries had already banned acts of volition and personal choice, there was a serious risk that Britain could become a “single, regional hub” for the illegal onward trafficking of independent thought.
She said that the penalties for personal possession of an open mind would be similar to those for cannabis – with a warning issued for a first-time offence, leading to arrest and prosecution for persistent possession and use of free will.
May said that there had been an increasing number of seizures of self-determination in transit in the UK, en route to the US, where any form of thinking was banned by the federal government earlier this year.
The home secretary’s decision clashes with the expert opinion of her own Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD), which has said there is insufficient evidence to indicate that excessive use of free thinking causes health problems, or wider problems in society, to justify imposing a ban in Britain.
The ACMD said that while critical thought was often used by students, farmers and lorry drivers to stay awake and keep working, since the widespread introduction of reality television in Britain the use of brainpower was now a minority activity used mainly for recreational purposes.
However, other experts have said that long hours spent thinking about things could become a barrier to getting a job although they noted that the majority of regular users of free volition usually moderated their consumption of independent thoughts to fit their work patterns.

Tom this 3 blocking has got utterly idiotic .
I give you an example .As you know i contribute to a number of sites including spotlight on abuse and needle blog Which campaign against child sex abuse . Whilst researching for those sites i came across a dodgy site where one could download copies of outdated publications and e books that have been banned or removed because of complaints made..in this case publications about paedophilia or ‘ boy love’ as the nonces call it. Ok so i find out the author from a link from that site who as usual is pissing and moaning how hard find by he is by all these hysterical witch hunters and that he is an académic trying to make sense of the paedophile ‘ phenomena’ ( thats a word they use a lot as if Its a new trend ) if you Check out the titles of these books like dont sound much like a.study..ok so in checking out the author for any credentials by googling his name it threw up a blog site called ‘ evil unveiled ‘ where it had an ítem about this pervert..heres the thing 3 blocks me from accessing that site..ie a site that lists info on nasty predators that prey on children but does not block websites by predators of children and or advocates of them..now Tom. How stupid and messed up is that?

I’m proud to say that I haven’t had a think for 6 months now, and my life has been transformed. Career opportunities in the media, law, banking and politics have suddenly opened up to me.
Of course it’s an ongoing struggle not to think, but since my local library was closed down life has got much easier. The things that I saw in that place were chilling – children as young as 5 huddled in small groups were being lured into reflection and thought by the pusher librarians.
As John Paul Satire famously said (in his post-thinking days): “I thought therefore I thunk.”
