The History of an Underground World
An Introduction to the Thesis, Methodology and the Literature

Part Two

Williams and Marijuana Law Reform

Cannabis law reform was one of the important political issues in 1979, and Williams
was presented with well-argued submissions in support of the legalisation of
cannabis from many individuals and groups like the Cannabis Research Foundation
and the South Australian Council for Civil Liberties.

In a paper entitled Marihuana: The Most Victimless Crime of All? future Health
Minister, Dr Neil Blewett, then President of the South Australian Council for Civil
Liberties, questioned the justification for using the criminal law for marijuana use.
He argued that — unlike crimes like murder, assault, robbery, and rape where there
were clear complainants calling for the protection of the criminal law — smoking
pot was a crime with no victim. The law against pot caused greater harm than the
plant, and consequently, as Dr Blewett commented:

The law is simply an ass if, in seeking to protect a person from his own
actions, it imposes upon him far greater agreed harm than anything likely to
result from the prohibited actions.5

Dr R. A. J. Webb, an educationalist with the NSW Drug Education Unit, in his
submission called Learning From Mistakes wrote:

Prohibition does not work. As the United States learned from 1920 to 1933 it
didn’t work with alcohol. As the country has been learning since 1914, it
doesn’t work with heroin, and it isn’t working today with marihuana, LSD, or
any of the illicit drugs.6

Dr Webb called for a realistic drugs policy with achievable goals:
A realistic understanding of what laws can and cannot do is needed. Laws
cannot work miracles. They cannot, for example, keep heroin away from
heroin addicts, nor marijuana away from marijuana smokers. The most laws
can do in these cases is to punish and to alienate. Accordingly law
enforcement policies should be revised to concentrate on achievable goals . .
. those goals that cannot be achievable by law enforcement should be
assigned to other instrumentalities such as education and social reform.7

In its submission the Cannabis Research Foundation argued for the legalisation of
cannabis with a legal marijuana industry regulated by a Cannabis Control Board.
The third option open to legislators is to legalise the use of cannabis. Such a
move is the only rational way to solve the problems caused by prohibition as


well as ensuring that the Government, not the black market, is the recipient of
the considerable revenue that is generated in the cannabis trade. Legislation
could be easily established through a Cannabis Control Board, just as we
have a wheat and milk board. The Cannabis Control Board would licence
growers and retailers (thereby) facilitating quality control, retail ethics
maintenance, and collection of revenue for the Government.8

Williams dismissed all these submissions as ‘naive and unrealistic’ claiming that
‘the inevitable increase in consumption throughout the Australian community to
which such a course would lead’ would be ‘socially unacceptable’ and a ‘national
disaster’. 9 Williams was not a man prepared to learn from mistakes. His own
‘realistic’ solution was simply more prohibition and better prohibition.

The Commission has concluded that the only sensible approach for Australia
to adopt is to maintain the existing ‘criminal/medical’ model of dealing with
illegal drug abuse. Critics of this model say that the criminal approach has
failed in spite of the public monies spent on police and the court system. The
Commission believes that there has been a large degree of inefficiency in law
enforcement to date and that a much better result can be obtained if Australia
... adopts a truly national policy against drug abuse. Law enforcement efforts
should be directed to the harassment of organised groups ... There has been
too much preoccupation in the past with having users and minor peddlars

Williams believed he could make prohibition work by remaking it as a truly
national system, just like Nixon had done in the U.S.

If the Commission is proposing a policy that is not novel the question that
must be invariably answered is why it has not worked before. The answer is
that it has not really been tried.11

This comment is not even poor logic: it is simple denial. It is a measure of the true
fanaticism of Williams that he could dismiss four decades of prohibition with the
claim that prohibition really hadn’t been tried yet! For a true believer like Williams,
prohibition could not fail: it just had to be tinkered with and fixed, and reformed
along robust Nixon-style War on Drugs lines. Williams called for a ten-year
‘moratorium ‘to put aside polemics and to enter upon a balanced consideration of the
issue of cannabis during which period ‘no relaxation of the present Australian
prohibition on cannabis should be made’. As Manderson commented ‘a finer
justification for inactivity could scarcely be imagined’.12

Williams and The War on Drugs

The most important task of drug policy, in Williams’ eyes, was the need to reduce
the supply of drugs, and to achieve this he put his faith in more police and more US
style laws.

There is no doubt, in the Commission’s view, that the incidence of drug taking
is substantially influenced by the availability of drugs. It is therefore essential


to increase law enforcement efforts to limit the availability of these drugs ...
cannabis and heroin.13

To remove cannabis and heroin from Australian society, Williams proposed an
all-out attack on the traffickers, the Mr Bigs. As Manderson argues in From Mr Sin
to Mr Big, Mr Big’ had become ‘a potent new symbol of evil’. While Mr Big — the
mysterious businessman said to control the drug trade behind a facade of
respectability, wealth and power — was never named, he served as folk-devil, a
convenient scapegoat who could be ‘blamed’ for the heroin plague, the murder of
Donald Mackay, and for the failure of prohibition without ever having to be
identified. Ever the true believer, Williams took to the pursuit of Mr Big

For the war against this new symbol of evil, the police were to be given
significant new powers. Because the Drug Trafficking Act proposed by Williams
‘will concentrate on the trafficker higher in the distribution chain rather than the
street level pedlar ... it seems proper to the Commission to place in the Act
significant increases in the powers that law enforcement agencies are able to call

Williams proposed a radical rewriting of Australian law to make drug trafficking
a major crime with major penalties. As Australian drug laws had developed, the
regulations and laws controlling drugs had been included in the various state Health
Acts and Poisons Acts because drug addiction was seen as a health problem, not as a
law-enforcement problem. Williams proposed moving drug trafficking from the
Health Act to the criminal code by the promulgation by all states of a uniform
Australia-wide Drug Trafficking Act. Williams also wanted a RICO style
Conspiracy Act with forfeiture laws and confiscation of assets. In essence, what
Williams proposed was US drug laws circa Richard Nixon — the total
Americanisation of Australian drug laws. Twenty years later, his namesake,
Attorney-General Darryl Williams, is still labouring to complete the final
Americanisation of Australia’s drug laws that Williams recommended. Under Darryl
Williams’ proposals ‘the major crime’ of trafficking (incurring major penalties) in
the new Criminal Code begins with the cultivation or possession of five marijuana

The contradictions were so glaring that even Williams was aware of them.

Elsewhere he writes:
The Australian approach to the abuse of illegal drugs has been illogical in
wanting to punish traffickers severely but at the same time show leniency to
users ... This approach is illogical because nearly all users are traffickers.16
Precisely. A surprising number of users are ‘traffickers’ when trafficking is
defined as the cultivation of five or more plants! But this ‘illogical’ approach was at


the core of Williams’ recommendations. To counter the legalisers who argued that
marijuana was a victimless crime, Williams claimed he was simply going after the
Mr Bigs and his new laws would direct police efforts against the criminal element
rather than the user population, allowing the police to harass and capture the large
operators; to focus ‘the effort of law enforcement where they are most effective e.g.
to apprehend one financier rather than six couriers.’17

It was a pretence of prohibition-with-a-human-face, while it actually made the
penalties for users (who faced being treated as traffickers for very small quantities)
far greater. Williams’ rhetoric was that he was simply targeting the Mr Bigs while
caring for users who would be offered ‘treatment’; but the Williams reality —
Queensland — would be a war against users with the Mr Bigs protected by the
increasingly well-resourced police. It was the Drug Joke that Williams, the loyal
Queenslander, would never see, even though he served faithfully on Bjelke-
Petersen’s Supreme Court through the worst excesses of the Lewis’ years.

For the last two decades Williams’ policies have prevailed in most of Australia
with the exception of the ACT and South Australia. The result? Cannabis use has
risen steadily. In 1977 there were an estimated 675,000 cannabis users; in 1998 this
figure had climbed to 2,700,000 cannabis users — a fourfold increase. When
Williams was writing, cannabis growing in Australia was in its infancy; today
cannabis growing is a multi-billion dollar black market. The arrest of a stream of
‘traffickers’ has had no effect on supply. There has never been another Drought.
‘Naive and unrealistic’ is how Williams described the legalisers. As a description of
his own prescriptions, those words seem far more apt. What could be more naive
than to think that if only the activities of traffickers could be restricted, demand for
drugs would disappear?4


Chapter 13

History By Numbers

So far I have relied on the time-honoured historical techniques of searching
government and newspaper archives, coupled with a literature review; in particular,
a review of underground youth culture magazines. These underground sources have
provided ‘a view from the street’ and have been the most useful lens so far. In
‘History By Numbers’, I am about to construct a new and very powerful lens, a lens
that will give us a sense of the size and scale of the Australian drug trade.

The development of ‘History By Numbers’ was influenced (in a positive sense)
by the Cleeland Report, Drugs, Crimes and Society, the most numerate government
report, a report which plays most of the important balls; it looks at price, drug
seizures and estimates the size of the drug market, the value of the drug market, and
the cost of drug law enforcement. ‘History By Numbers’ extends this analysis over a
25 year span and examines the trends. It provides an economic history of the
Australian marijuana trade during the War on Drugs years.

‘History By Numbers’ was also influenced (in a negative sense) by Williams,
whose senseless garbling of the crucial seizure figures for 1975-78 plummeted me
into despair. This despair was followed by the realisation that I could not rely on the
official figures as presented by Williams and that I would have to correct Williams’
errors. I have criticised Williams substantially already. Rather than bewail his
incompetence further, in ‘History By Numbers’ I have provided a model for how his
task should have been undertaken. In this sense, ‘History By Numbers’ completes
my critique of Williams, not negatively, but positively, by doing what Williams
should have done, subjecting the drugs policies of the past 25 years to a cost-benefit

To free myself from the blindfold of ideology, I have adopted a scientific,
quantitative approach. Using the historical figures on seizures, arrests, price and
cannabis using population, I propose a general theory of prohibition and test the
following three propositions:

The price of pot varies with the regime of prohibition;
The percentage seized varies with the regime of prohibition; and,
The regime of corruption increases with the regime of prohibition.

I also propose a way to measure the degree of prohibition (the regime of
prohibition), and a new way to calculate the size of the pot market (the Green Mean
method). Having estimated the size of the market in this way, I crosscheck my model
against the seizure figures. By running these two equations simultaneously, I provide
the most accurate model of the Australian marijuana market so far, and reveal ‘The


Sydney Connection’, the group connected with a series of anomalous large seizures
destined for the US market.

This is a very powerful historical tool — it develops a sense of scale, and gives a
sense of what is big and, by association, who the Mr Bigs are. The analysis of the
time of massive seizures, 1975 - 1978, which follows ‘History By Numbers’,
demonstrates this by nominating Donald Mackay’s murderer far better than
Woodward did. When you understand what a 31 acre farm of pot means, you
understand why Donald Mackay died.

Under international drug treaties, the Australian government is required to
maintain statistics on the illicit drug trade, and this has been done (by a bewildering
array of agencies) since 1953, when Customs began publishing the annual Report of
the Government of Australia in the calendar year .... on the traffic in opium and
other dangerous drugs, down to the present day Australian Illicit Drug Report.
These statistics allow us to measure the trends in price, usage, drug offences and
amount of drugs seized over five decades. Using these figures we can determine the
size of the market and gain a sense of the scale of the Australian cannabis market,
allowing us to see what is big and what is too big.

By showing us what is big, it shows, as I have pointed out, who the Mr Bigs are.
By telling us what is TOO BIG, it solves many of the mysteries of our story so far. In
particular, the mysteries of the period of massive seizures between 1975 and 1978:
Who was behind the massive seizures of the time?
Who (or what) caused the heroin plague?
Who was behind the criminal takeover of the drug scene?
Who (or what) caused the marijuana Drought?
Who killed Donald Mackay?
Why?, and
Was there a heroin conspiracy?
The Williams, Woodward and Stewart Royal Commissions addressed most of
these questions. I shall be giving somewhat different answers.

Estimating the Size of the Australian Marijuana Market
(1973 - 1998)
Pot’s First Decade in Australia 1964 - 1973
Cannabis use was reborn in Australia in the Summer of 1964/65 with the welltrumpeted
discovery of acres of wild hemp infesting the Hunter Valley, north of
Sydney. With the beginning of R and R tours to Sydney in late 1967, cannabis use
exploded. The figures on cannabis arrests in the sixties reflect Sydney’s early preeminence
in the cannabis scene. In 1965 there were 15 cannabis arrests in Sydney,
versus two in the rest of the country; in 1966 there were 57 arrests in Sydney, versus
four in the rest of Australia. The explosive growth of pot use in New South Wales is
reflected in the table on Detection of Cannabis by Police in New South Wales: 1
Table 1: Detection of Cannabis by Police in New South Wales:
Year Number Detected %Increase
1966 57 280
1967 104 82
1968 193 86
1969 337 75
1970 394 17
Pot detection increased by 280% between 1966 and 1967, and increased by about
80% each year till 1970. These figures confirm the explosive growth of pot smoking
in Australia from 1965 to 1970. The figures for cannabis seizures also suggest that
the market was doubling each year, as the figures for cannabis seizures for 1972 and
1973 reveal.2
Table 2: Seizure of cannabis by Police and Customs 1972 and 1973
Year Customs Police Total
cannabis heads 1972 200,998 g 376,883 g 578 kg
hashish 332,848 g 23,065 g 356 kg
plants 5,891 5,891
cannabis heads 1973 866,060g 921,461 g 1,788 kg
hashish 234,396g 3,579 g 237 kg
plants 86 14,095 14,181
The total quantity of pot seized was about 1.5 tonne in 1972 and about 3.3 tonnes
of cannabis was seized in 1973. We could use these figures to calculate an estimated
market size for 1972 and 1973 using the seizure method which determines the size of
the pot market in this way: If we assume that the police and customs seize 10% of
the market, then the estimated Australian market size in 1972 was 15 tonnes and the
estimated market size in 1973 was 33 tonnes of cannabis.

The Green Mean Method of Estimating the Australian Marijuana Market
From 1973 onwards, there are a number of nation-wide surveys (McNair 1973,
1977; Morgan 1979, 1982, 1984; NCADA 1985, 1988, 1991, 1993, 1995, 1998)
which allow us to estimate the number of Australians who smoked marijuana in the
last year. These population figures on ‘active smokers’ allow us to estimate the size
of the Australian marijuana market with surprising accuracy. Obviously, the amount
of pot smoked in Australia increases proportionally to the number of Australians
smoking pot. Mathematically, the size and value of the marijuana market for any
particular year can be calculated using the following equations:
Estimated yearly market size = No. smokers X Green Mean;
Estimated Market Value = No. smokers X Green Mean X price/oz;
where the Green Mean represents the amount of pot smoked by the average
Australian pot smoker in a year.
Drugs, Crimes and Society, the report by the Parliamentary Joint Committee on
the National Crime Authority, chaired by Peter Cleeland MP, was the first
government report to estimate the size of the Australian marijuana market, and we
can use their figure to calculate the Green Mean. By definition, the Green Mean
equals the amount of pot smoked in a year in Australia divided by the number of
smokers. The Cleeland Report estimated the size of the Australian pot market in
1988 at 120 tonnes of cannabis. Using the population surveys for that year, I
estimate that there were 1,500,000 Australians who smoked pot at least once in
1988. By dividing Cleeland’s 1988 ‘guesstimate’ by the number of smokers in 1988
we can calculate the Green Mean to be about 80 grams (3 ounces) or 80 one gram
joints per year or 80 J per annum.
The Green Mean Model of the Australian Marijuana Market, 1973 - 1998
Using the Green Mean method allows easy estimation of the marijuana market and
gives more consistent estimates of the marijuana market than the seizure method.
Table Three, The Australian Marijuana Industry Chart, 1973-1998, is a master chart
I have compiled from a number of historical sources. The number of smokers is a
calculation based on a series of nation-wide surveys between 1973 and 1998.
Estimated market size for any year is based on the Cleeland Report for the National
Crime Authority, and assumes a standard market size of 120 tonnes in 1988. This is
multiplied by the ratio of the number of smokers in that particular year divided by
the number of smokers in 1988. The figure for price is based on a number of
historical sources cited in the section ‘Prohibition and the Price of Pot’. The 1988
projections agree with the Cleeland Report, which is the measure used to estimate
the other years.

1973 $30 40 tonnes 500,000 McNair $40m
1977 $30 55 tonnes 675,000 McNair drought
1979 $50 60 tonnes 750,000 Morgan drought
1982 $200 77 tonnes 975,000 Morgan $550m
1984 $300 94 tonnes 1,175,000 Morgan/NCADA $1020m
1988 $450 120 tonnes 1,500,000 Morgan/NCADA $1,900m
1991 $450 130 tonnes 1,625,000 NCADA $2,000m
1993 $450 135 tonnes 1,666,000 NCADA $2,200m
1995 $450 150 tonnes 1,850,000 NCADA $2,400m
1998 $400 210 tonnes 2,700,000 NCADA $3,000m
Note the estimated market size for 1973 is 40 tonnes. We had previously
calculated the 1973 market size using the 3.3 tonne seizure figure as 33 tonnes,
based on the assumption that police and customs seized 10% of the market. From
our newer estimate we would conclude that the police and customs seized 8% of the
market in 1973. This is a very good result for the Green Mean method, and by
implication, Cleeland’s 1988 figure. We are right in the mean of the green!

Comments On Graph 3
This graph is based on twelve surveys over a 25 year period, which are the basis for
our ‘guesses’ of the number of Australian users. It is important to remember that
surveys are simply good guesses. Sometimes they guess high and sometimes they
guess low. I believe that two of the major features of Graph 3 — the 1988 and 1998
‘peaks’ — are the result of high guesses rather than actual peaks in cannabis use.
There is nothing in the historical record to indicate that these years represented highs
in cannabis use in Australia. The small rise between 1977 and 1979 does correlate
with a known historical event - these are the years of the Great Drought.
Between 1984 and 1988 we are blessed/cursed with four polls, which give
significantly different guesses — Morgan 1984, Morgan 1988, NCADA 1985,
NCADA 1988. Both the Morgan polls give low ‘guesses’ while the NCADA polls
give much higher guesses. The big difference is in their guesses for 1988. In 1988
the NCADA guess would indicate about 1,750,000 Australian cannabis users, while
the Morgan guess indicates 800,000 cannabis users.
Faced with this enormous disparity, I adapted a line-of-best-fit approach to the
years between 1984 and 1988 and made my own guesses for these years. My
1984/1985 figure is based on the formula of 50% Morgan plus 50% NCADA while
the 1988 guess is 75% NCADA plus 25% Morgan. My aim was to fall in between
the two guesses, because I suspected that NCADA was a high guess and Morgan
was guessing low, and the truth lay in between. I was seeking a line-of-best-fit and
this formula seemed to provide it.
It is not only Morgan 1988 that suggested that NCADA 1988 was guessing high.
All previous and future polls indicate that it is too high i.e. if we were to draw our
graph using the NCADA 1988 figure, 1988 would be a very prominent peak in
cannabis use in Australia, even though there is nothing in the historical record to
indicate this was so. The same holds in reverse for Morgan 1988. It is not only
NCADA 1988 that suggests it is low. Again, if we were to draw our graph using
Morgan 1988 for our 1988 guess, we would see a large trough in cannabis use in the
years before 1988, even more noticable than the Great Drought, followed by a
mountain range in the nineties, with a tripling of users in ten years, again without
any corresponding features in the historical record to explain this increase. The grey
lines illustrate these rejected scenarios. It is the gestalt of all the polls which suggests
Morgan 1988 is a low poll, while NCADA 1988 seems a high poll, indicating a best
fit approach should be adapted in these years. Because the polls are guesses we can
tolerate a landscape of hills, but mountain ranges require explanation.

Estimating the size of the Australian Marijuana market
1988-1995 — the Modified Cleeland method
In 1999, while I was developing the Green Mean model, the Department of
Economics at the University of Western Australia published a discussion paper, The
Economics of Marijuana Consumption, by Kenneth W Clements and Mert Daryal.
Clements and Daryal estimated that the Australian marijuana market was worth $5
billion in 1995. Apart from Cleeland, this is the only published model of the market,
and Clements and Daryal’s paper is the source for most contemporary estimates of
the Australian cannabis market. Having analysed their model in detail, I believe that
they overestimate the size of the market, an overestimation caused because they
overestimate individual cannabis consumption. What follows is an examination of
their method and my suggestions for improving it.
A Comparison between the Green Mean model and Clements and Daryal’s The
Economics of Marijuana Consumption
Like the Green Mean model, Clements and Daryal use the Cleeland Report (1989) as
the starting point for their model, but after that our models diverge. A complicating
factor is that there were two different polls of cannabis users in Australia in 1988:
the Morgan poll, which was used by Cleeland; and the NCADA poll, which, as a
result of various bureaucratic name changes, is known now as the National Drug
Strategy Household Survey or the NDSHS survey. Probably because of the way the
different polls asked the question, Morgan reported significantly fewer cannabis
users than the NCADA survey in 1988. The difference between the number of
cannabis users in Australia estimated by the two polls ranged from 800,000
(Morgan) versus 1,750,000 (NCADA). The same disparity in the number of cannabis
users is revealed when you compare Morgan’s 1984 survey with NCADA’s 1985
survey, which again is significantly higher. For whatever reason, the Morgan poll
produced significantly lower estimates of cannabis use than the NCADA poll.
Clements and Daryal use the NCADA/NDSHS poll in 1988, unlike Cleeland who
uses Morgan 1988. As explained, I regard Morgan 1988 as a low poll and NCADA
1988 as a high poll, and I use a best fit method to guess the number of users in 1988,
utilising both polls. I accept Cleeland’s estimated market size of 120 tonnes, and
divide this by the NCADA/Morgan derived figure of 1,500, 000 users and arrive at a
Marijuana Australiana
Green Mean of 80 grams per year. I then test the range of figures given by this Green
Mean against the seizure figures to see whether they are harmonious.
Clements and Daryal’s approach was to recalculate Cleeland’s estimate using the
higher NCADA poll. Consequently, they got a figure about twice Cleeland’s.
If they are right, it has important effects on my Green Mean model, which is
calibrated against the size of the market in 1988. It would mean the annual Green
Mean should be 160 J.
Are Clements and Daryal right about the size of the market in 1988?
Or is Cleeland right?
The Seizure Evidence and Clements and Daryal’s Model
From my point of view, Cleeland uses a poll that is low in its estimate of cannabis
users but he unconsciously compensates for this by using an average heavy use
figure which is too high, and he is lucky because these errors cancel out. I have
examined only the seventies closely but, from these investigations, the Green Mean I
obtained from Cleeland seems to be holding against the seizure figures, ie Cleeland’s
guesstimate is good, despite his questionable assumptions.
Clements and Daryal correct one of Cleeland’s questionable assumptions, but not
the other. They use the high NCADA poll but they borrow Cleeland’s high average
heavy use figure. Consequently, their model overestimates the market. However,
with the tweakings I suggest, it flies nicely alongside the Green Mean model in the
1988 - 1995 range, producing an alternative way of estimating the market — the
Modified Cleeland method — and indicating an annual Green Mean in the range of
80 J.
One significant difference between Clements and Daryal and myself is they do
not check their estimated market size against the seizure figures, arguing that:
Information regarding drug seizures or prosecutions for drug offences would
obviously be highly imperfect measures of consumption; for example, an
intensification of enforcement effort could lead to increased seizures even if
consumption remained unchanged.3
This is almost my second law of the cannabis market (the percentage seized
varies with the regime of prohibition) phrased slightly differently. I agree that this
does complicate the problem of estimating the size of the market from the seizure
figures. However, any unified model of the Australian marijuana market has to
balance the size of the market estimated from seizures against the size of the market
estimated from the number of smokers. In my phrasing, the estimates have to be
‘harmonious’, and the percentage seized has to be a believable proportion of the
estimated market size.
Marijuana Australiana
The seizure figures can not be dismissed from the discussion of the size of the
Australian cannabis market. Confusing and intractable though they may be, the
seizure figures provide some of the most useful information about the market, and to
ignore them is folly.
Are Clements and Daryal’s Overestimating Market Size? The argument from
Both Clements and Daryal and myself are the children of Cleeland, with
characteristic variations. I use a different equation for calculating the market based
on the used in the last year, or ‘recent’ smokers’ number: the Green Mean method.
Clements and Daryal are Cleeland traditionalists in that they follow Cleeland’s
method for estimating the size of the market.
The method Cleeland used for calculating the Australian market size was this:
Cleeland argued that most of the pot smoked in Australia was smoked by those who
smoked the most pot, and he calculated the amount of pot smoked by calculating
only how much the heavy smokers smoked. Their equation was:
Size of Market = Number of Heavy Smokers X Heavy Green Mean.
While I use for my number of cannabis users the figures for anyone who smoked
in the past year, Cleeland only looked at those who have smoked in the last week.
Cleeland calculated the size of the cannabis market according to the formula: The
size of the marijuana market is equal to the number of heavy users multiplied by the
average amount smoked by a heavy cannabis user. This Cleeland estimated to be 10
grams of cannabis per week, an estimate I believe is an overestimation. This error,
which overestimated the size of the market, compensated for his other error, the use
of a low poll, which underestimated the market.
Clements and Daryal estimated marijuana consumption in Australia using a
slightly modified version of Cleeland. While Cleeland considered only those who
smoked once a week or more, Clements and Daryal used everyone who smoked in
the past year, using different average consumption amounts for each category. Those
who smoked daily were estimated to consume 10 grams per week or 520 grams per
year; those who smoked once a week or more (but not daily) were given an
estimated average of 7 grams per week or 364 grams per year; those who smoked
once a month or more were given an estimated average consumption of 4 grams per
month or 48 grams per year; those who smoked every few months were assumed to
consume 3 grams per year; while those who smoked about once or twice a year were
assumed to consume 1 gram per year. The greater weighting given the first two
categories meant that 95% of the total consumption came from those who smoked
more than once a week: i.e. it wa in line with Cleeland’s assumption that most of the
pot wa smoked by these two groups.
Marijuana Australiana
In terms of cost and size, Clements and Daryal’s average consumption figures,
which were based on Cleeland, seem too high.
Consider first the matter of the cost of the habits that Clement and Daryal impose
on their cannabis users. At $450 an ounce, ten grams of cannabis per week equals a
cannabis habit of $160 per week for daily users or $8320 per year; while at 7 grams
per week, it costs the average user who smokes once a week or more (but not daily)
$112 per week or $5824 per year. These estimates seem beyond what most
Australian cannabis users could sustain. Cannabis use is highest among males aged
20 - 24, many of whom are students or unemployed. In the period Clements and
Daryal looked at (1988 -1995), the unemployment benefit and the student benefit
were worth around $160 per week; after rent and food, this would not leave anything
like $160 or even $112 per week in disposable income for cannabis.
Where does the money come from to maintain the habits that Clements and
Daryal estimates demand? No answer to this problem is given by Clements and
Daryal who do not even consider the question. But it is a very serious flaw in their
One of the characteristics of the cannabis market, as opposed to the heroin
market, is that cannabis users are far less likely to turn to other crime. Cannabis
users are not like junkies who steal and prostitute themselves to maintain expensive
habits. Because they are not heavily addicted, cannabis users are much more likely
to go without pot for a few days whenever budget dictates. The major crimes
committed by heavy cannabis users are simply the growing and selling of cannabis.
People growing pot themselves and people dealing could maintain a 7-gram per
week habit because budget would not be a consideration, but for most other users
money is a very important limitation. Economic necessity dictates that many
frequent cannabis users have to maintain their habits on a budget of $25 - $50 per
week. They cannot afford the kind of habits estimated by Clements and Daryal.
Because cannabis prohibition forces up the price of pot, it forces long-term
cannabis users to learn to maintain their habits while using less. They do this by
learning to smoke cannabis more efficiently. Long-term cannabis users will often
object to being labeled ‘heavy users’; they maintain that they are simply ‘frequent
users’. This distinction is useful to explain one of the strategies adopted by longterm
cannabis users to maintain their habits under prohibition. By carefully titrating
the dose to reach the required high, by using smaller amounts more frequently, the
experienced user learns how to smoke more efficiently, actually smoking less by
smoking more often, by moving away from joints towards bongs, pipes and cones.
This leads to our second argument against Clement and Daryal’s model: the
argument based on consumption levels.
Marijuana Australiana
Did Clements and Daryal’s Overestimating Consumption? Cleeland’s second
error — the error in consumption levels
There are, I believe, two mistakes in the Cleeland committee’s estimation of the
Australian marijuana market in 1988. Firstly, they used a low poll, Morgan not
NCADA; secondly, they overestimated weekly and daily consumption levels. These
two errors cancel out, and it seems that they got a very approximate answer. Possibly
it was sheer dumb luck, though it may well be that the committee had a good idea of
the approximate size, and deliberately chose their consumption figures to give that
ballpark answer. Ironically, Clements and Daryal are wrong, because they were half
right. They saw the committee’s first mistake, but not their second error, their model
ended up overestimating the size of the market significantly.
The error they missed was the overestimation of consumption levels, which they
largely adopted uncritically (though they reduced the weekly/daily figure from 10
grams to 7 grams, which was an improvement in this direction). Cleeland were
wrong, but they were wrong twice; and in Cleeland’s case, these two wrongs gave a
right. Unfortunately for Clements and Daryal, they were wrong only once.
Their ‘wrong’, the error in consumption levels, becomes apparent when you
consider Clements and Daryal’s estimations about consumption levels. Consider
what 7 grams per week represents, which is the average amount they say is smoked
by people who smoke more than once a week, but who are not daily users. Seven
grams represents: one J per day, or one of our 1-gram party joints every day, each of
which contains several highs. One J per day is too high. It is sufficient for a person
who smokes daily. It equates to one two-paper numbers twice per day, or 3 or 4
‘racehorses’ (thinly rolled one person joints) per day; or several pipes or cones three
times a day, depending on the size of the pipe or cone.
Likewise, if 7 grams is the average for weekly (but not daily) use, they were
assuming that the range of pot used by smokers who smoked weekly (but not daily)
was between 1 gram and 13 grams, which again seems way too high. 7 grams might
be the top of the range ie the range might be 1 gram to 7 grams, but you would
expect the average would be half that.
Half of seven grams ie three-and-a-half grams per week seems a good estimate
for the more-than-once-a-week, but less-than-daily, users. It is possible to use half a
gram daily, saving yourself for a few cones at night, but such restrained users would
be at the very bottom of the daily user amounts; most daily users would be unlikely
to maintain a habit of half-a-gram per day, but this amount would be sufficient for
users who use several times per week.
I suggest that the range for the more-than-once-a-week/less-than-daily users
would be between 1 gram and 5 grams of pot per week, producing an average of 3
Marijuana Australiana
grams of pot per week for this group. At $450 per ounce, 3 grams of pot is a
cannabis habit that costs only $48 per week, an amount most cannabis users could
afford without resorting to crime; whereas Clements and Daryal’s usage figures
require that cannabis users, like junkies, engage in crime to maintain their habits.
This may be so in some individual cases, but the vast majority of cannabis users are
otherwise law-abiding, and there is no evidence to support the contention that they
engage in crime (apart from growing or dealing cannabis) to support their habits.
How much would the average daily user smoke? I suggest about 6 or 7 grams of
pot per week. At $450 an ounce, a 7-gram usage would be a cannabis habit of $112
per week while a 6-gram usage would mean a cannabis habit of $96 per week, which
seems too high, but I am assuming that many of the heavy users will be growers or
dealers, so the $112 per week will be purely notional ie they may be smoking their
profits, or they may be growing their own, but few ordinary people have the kind of
disposable income (in 1988) to afford a regular $112 per week drug habit, without
resorting to crime.
The marijuana consumption of growers is complicated because not all the pot
produced by them is marketable marijuana. At $450 an ounce, buyers are
surprisingly picky; for this price the buyer will expect high-quality, manicured buds;
no leaf, no kif, no ‘shit’. As a consequence, up to 50% of the pot produced is in the
form of ‘non-market marijuana’, pot which is unsaleable because it does not meet
market standards. Needless to say, courts and police are far less discriminating than
the market. So disposal of the non-market marijuana is a problem for growers, which
they solve in a number of ways. Some is smoked by the growers themselves or sold
cheaply to friends. Despite market prejudices, the best of this non-market marijuana
is smokable, and the amount smoked by growers themselves would be considerable.
So while I set the average for heavy users at 6-7 grams of pot, this is ‘market
marijuana’ only and would be augmented from this sizable pool of non-market
The Modified Cleeland - A Second Means of Estimating the Cannabis Market
(1988 -1995)
If you recalculate Clements and Daryal using the figures I suggest (ie 3 grams per
week for the more than weekly, less than daily group, and 6 or 7 grams for the daily
smoker group), you end up very close to the Green Mean model (see Table 4).
The comparison between the Green Mean and Clements and Daryal in the
estimation of the Australian marijuana market is given in Table 4. Note that the third
and fourth figures, Modified Cleeland (1) and Modified Cleeland (2), are Clements
and Daryal modified as I suggest. The more-than-once-a-week, but less-than-daily,
average is set at 3 grams of pot per week in both models. In Modified Cleeland (1)
Marijuana Australiana
the daily user average is set at 6 grams of pot per week. In Modified Cleeland (2) the
daily user average is set at 7 grams of pot per week. The polls used to estimate the
number of smokers are NCADA 1988, 1991, 1993, 1995, with the exception
(already noted) of the Green Mean estimate for 1988.
Marijuana Australiana
Table 4: Size of the Australian Marijuana Market in Thousands of Ounces:
80 J Green Mean V Clements and Daryal V Modified Cleeland (1) and (2)
Year 1988 1991 1993 1995
Clements and Daryal 8,460 11,381 9,983 11,271
Green Mean 4,300 4,660 4,840 5,380
Modified Cleeland (1) 3,876 5,306 4,803 5,348
Modified Cleeland (2) 4,156 5,639 5,244 5,819
Although we use a similar starting point, the Green Mean model and Clements
and Daryal’s model differ by a factor of 2. This is due to the factors we have
discussed: the difference in numbers between the Morgan and NCADA polls in
1988, and the heavy average consumption figures Clements and Daryal used. By
using more realistic usage figure for heavy users, the estimates produced by their
method approach the Green Mean model as Table 4 demonstrates. Note that the gap
between Modified Cleeland (1) and Modified Cleeland (2) is tiny; yet the 80 J Green
Mean produces estimates that fall in the narrow range between the two models in
two of our four years; the other two years include 1991, a year in which all the
modified Cleeland methods (most notably Clements and Daryal) seem to be
estimating high. Clements and Daryal provide no explanation why their estimate for
consumption in 1991 was so high, yet it is 35% higher than 1988! By contrast, the
estimates of the 80 J Green Mean model shows a steady increase through these
years. The anomolous size of the 1991 estimate is the same for Modified Cleeland
(1) and Modified Cleeland (2). Note that even in this year of worst fit, the Modified
Cleeland (1) estimate is only 14% higher than the Green Mean estimate, while the
Modified Cleeland (2) estimate is only 21% higher. Of our eight Modified Cleeland
guesses, these are the only two which differ by more than 10% from the Green Mean
estimate. The best two guesses are Modified Cleeland (1) in 1993, which was 99.3%
of the Green Mean estimate, and in 1995, when it did even better (99.4%)!
The 1988 results are also interesting.
The NCADA 1988 poll givns a high guess of the figure I use to calculate market
size (used-in-last-year), so I expected both the Modified Cleeland’s would produce a
higher estimate for 1988 than mine. However, the figures used by the Modified
Cleeland methods to calculate market size (the used-daily figure and the usedweekly
figure) were low in 1988 compared to other years. Consequently my estimate
of market size in 1988 is slightly higher than both the Modified Cleeland’s, not
lower! Not by much, mind. The Modified Cleeland (2) estimate is 97% of the Green
Marijuana Australiana
Mean estimate, while the lower Modified Cleeland (1) estimate is still 90% of the
Green Mean estimate. Although I talk about high polls and low polls, this is purely
relative, as this example shows. The polls wobble all over the place, and even tiny
wobbles have large effects when they are at the business end of our calculations.
At $450 an ounce, Clements and Daryal’s estimated eleven million ounces of
cannabis consumed in 1995 would be worth $5 billion dollars. This figure has
become the standard guesstimate for the size of the marijuana market in Australia.
Clements and Daryal calculate this to be about 1% of GDP. In contrast, the Green
Mean model suggests a market value of $2.4 billion in 1995 and a market value of
$3.2 billion in 1998.
The Models Compared
The great advantage of Clements and Daryal’s model (and the original Cleeland
model) is that the Green Means they employ for daily users, and for those who use
more than weekly but less than daily, are intuitive, easily measured amounts;
whereas my annual Green Mean is counter-intuitive, a purely statistical conceit.
Using the assumptions of Modified Cleeland (1) it would seem that nearly all of my
estimated 80 J Green Mean is smoked by the one third of active smokers who are
smoking weekly or daily. About half of the pot is smoked by the group who smoke
weekly but less than daily, who average 156 J per year; while another half is smoked
by those who smoke daily, who average about 312 J per year.
The advantage of the Green Mean model over Clements and Daryal is that it is
calculated from a figure (those who used cannabis in the past year) for which there is
a long historical record in the polls, stretching all the way back to 1973. I chose this
method because it gives such a long historic range and, from the historical
perspective, this is clearly the superior model. The historical range of the Green
Mean model is from 1973 to 1998, a 25-year period. By comparison, the range of
Clements and Daryal’s model is only 7 years, from 1988 to 1995. A telling
consequence is this: the Green Mean model can be used to examine the period of
massive seizures from 1975 -1978; whereas Clements and Daryal’s model does not
begin till one decade later.

On the Reliability of the Polls

Another doubt I have about using modified Cleeland methods (like Clements and
Daryal) is that they are ‘pushing the envelope’ regarding the statistical reliability of
the polls they use. All polls are guesses with a certain statistical variation and, as the
Morgan and NCADA 1988 polls indicate, they can be out by significant amounts. If
we look at the National Drug Strategy Household Survey from 1988 to 1995 (also
known as the NCADA polls) which form the basis for Clements and Daryal


calculations for marijuana consumption in Australia we observe some significant
variations (see Table 5).4

Table 5: Marijuana Consumption in Australia (Percentage of Respondents
There is considerable variation in the polls, though, fortunately for Clements and
Daryal, this is less so at the business end of the figures, the daily or once a week or
more figures. For example, the measures in daily use vary only between 4% and 5%
(a 25% variation) and the figures on once a week or more vary between 8% and 11%
(a 37% variation). However the once or twice a year figure ranges from 6% to 14%
(a 133% variation!).

I am suspicious of the variation shown in the Every-few-months figure. I believe
the 1988 figure is anomolously high. It shows 11% in 1988 versus 6% in 1995 and
1993 and 8% in 1991. I suggest it was also 6% in 1988, and the 11% figure is a tiny
statistical wobble in that poll, but one which has major consequences for our
estimation of the Used-in-last-year figures for 1988. Note that 1988 is the high year
for this figure (47%). This anomolous high in the Every-few-months figure explains
why 1988 is a ‘high’ poll on this measure. If the Used-in-the-last-month figure in
1988 was 6% not 11%, the NCADA 1988 figure for Used-in-the-last-year would be
42% not 47%. The Used-in-the-last-month figure in 1988 would be 89% lower! My
decision to take the line-of-best-fit approach to 1988 seems vindicated. It gave a
figure that was 86% lower than NCADA 1988! I suggest that it is this anomoly in
the 1988 NCADA figures that pushed the Used-in-the-last-year figure high that year.
Interestingly, while this variation would force my estimation of the market


significantly higher (about 16% higher), it would have absolutely no effect on the
way Cleeland does the estimation!

These variations, rather than reflecting real variation in the habits of our cannabis
users, may simply reflect the standard deviation in our polls (our measure) rather
than any real variation in what we are attempting to measure (frequency of cannabis
consumption). Now if we got a 133% variation in our daily use figure, this would
cause a massive miscalculation in our estimation of consumption. Indeed, the reason
why Clements and Daryal’s estimation of consumption in 1991 is higher than in the
other years is because in this year the measures for the two important categories
(Used-daily or Used-in-last-week) were both highs for this period. I suggest that this
is another statistical anomaly, and that cannabis consumption was lower in 1991 than
in 1993 or 1995 in line with the estimates of the Green Mean model, which is far less
subject to these variations.

The figure I use to calculate the Green Mean model is the total of all who have
used in the past year, which ranges between 41% and 47% (a 15% variation).

Remember, too, that the 47% figure is the 1988 NCADA poll, the figure I rejected
because it looked too high. By using the Used-in-the-last-year figure in this
discriminating way, I do not push the statistical reliability of the polls as much as the
modified Cleeland methods, which use the much smaller Used-daily and Used-inlast-
week figures. As well as having a much greater range, this makes the Green
Mean model more reliable.

However, it must be conceded that the Modified Cleeland method demonstrated
by Clements and Daryal does not show as much variation in practice as I anticipated,
and, with the tweaking I suggest, the two models are quite compatible. In the guise
of Modified Cleeland (1) and Modified Cleeland (2), the Cleeland method flies in
the same zone as our model. It provides a second way to estimate the market which
supports the 80 J Green Mean model in its upper range between 1988 and 1995.5
Implications of Clements and Daryal’s model

The major question that has to be answered after our examination of Clements and
Daryal is: Should we consider changing our annual Green Mean?

There is no doubt that Clements and Daryal are overestimating significantly, and
the Green Mean is nowhere near the 160 J we would calculate from their estimate.

The evidence of Modified Cleeland (1) and Modified Cleeland (2) supports an
annual Green Mean of 80 J.

We Stand For NO SYSTEM

Kindom (Do No Harm Communities) is the dream for freedom, but it is the dream for the freedom of those around us who also live the dream of freedom, because it is in living for the freedom of others that we get our freedom. When we live for the dreams of Kindom of those around us, we live life as a gift because we live for (dedicate our lives to) their dream of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance, etc, just as they live for our Kindom dreams too. This is true co-creation (cooperation) with no attack on the uniqueness of each of us. When we live this way, we have no need for any man-made system - everything/everyone has already been taken care of by our love for life.

Just as we do not have to jump 10 feet across the room to grab our next breath, neither do we have to worry about food, water and shelter because it has all been taken care of as we each co-create Kindoms/Kin-Domains for everyone. Now everybody and everything of the dream of life that is Kindom/Paradise is free (has been set free once again). The issue is greed and selfishness, power and control trips, arrogance, ignorance, being fed many many lies and being traumatised. The issue is not overpopulation - there is more than enough land available for every family to have a hectare (2.5 acres Kin-Domain) to care for. The land of Australia can provide a Kin-Domain for every family across Earth, each with a food forest, clean fresh drinking water and plenty of space for building natural do no harm habitats and with plenty of land left over.

Everyone must have the freedom to take full-responsibility for their lives, for the water they drink, the food they eat and for their shelter. Currently, "The System" forces everyone to give up taking full-responsibility so that we become grown up children accustomed to sucking on the nipples of "The System" corporations for everything, having to use money to get by and to follow the rules of money because we are not co-creating freedom, peace, truth, joy and abundance for each other. Money only leads to haves and have nots and all the abuse, manipulation and distractions that we are subjected to as slaves to money.

When we give up living for other's Kindom dreams, we start creating hell ("The System") all around us because we become self-centred - now it's all about "my freedom","my money", "my land", "my belief", "my saviour", "mine", "mine","mine", "i","i", "i", "own", "own", "own", etc. To protect what we claim we own requires a man-made system with FORCE to protect those self-centred claims. This is ALL trauma based and all story-telling (brainwashing/braindirtying).

NO SYSTEM = KINDOM/DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES photo Kindom_zpsa6d24e8a.jpg

Our true freedom comes when we set our thoughts of freedom into motion so that we live freedom rather than just talking and thinking about it while we still slave for "The System". Kindom will not happen while we meditate for hours in the bush or do yoga retreats or wait for Jesus or follow the processes of the OPPT (One People's Public Trust now called One People). This is not freedom because we are not living freedom because we are living the story-telling of Jesus or Zeitgeist or The Secret or Thrive or One Earth/Consciousness/People.

Living Kindom is very, very hard work as we set about repairing the damage to MAN/Earth/Nature that we are ALL responsible for but the burden becomes lighter the more of us put our life-energy into the dream of returning Earth to Paradise. Day-after-day, we all have to work our arses off until Kindom is all around us (MAN) once again. This is the price we pay to set each other free on a piece of land (Kin-Domain), so that no one is under the image-power (education/brainwashing/story-telling) of another MAN anymore and so that everyone can have their space of love to create and live their unique, do no harm dreams. This only happens once we have the Kindoms set up so that everyone is provided for.

Once we re-create the food forests, whether on land or in the suburbs, we can re-claim our freedom, breaking the strangle-hold of "The System" because we are no longer reliant on its services and benefits and no longer turning each other into slaves of "The System", cogs in the wheels of "The System" machine. If we don't put the effort in to set everyone and everything free all around us then we still live in HELL ("The System"). The key is to live for everyone else's freedom so that we can have it too.

Peaceful Transition Through Sacrifice And Service

We feel there is an essential peaceful do no harm transition required to get all of MAN back to standing on MANS feet without reliance upon another MAN for water, food, shelter. As it stands everyone in "The System" are highly dependent and reliant on the "group mind-set" that forms "The System" of slaves providing services and benefits for the emotionally addicted slaves to "The System" (and you can put us in the same basket too). The transition is to get MAN back to relying ONLY on nature without 3rd party interlopers, intermeddlers, interceders getting in the way. The transition is a team effort with the foresight for setting all of MAN free down-the-line so that MAN is no longer dependent on slaves and masters providing services, benefits, privileges and exclusivity while being bound to contracts, rituals, procedures, conditions, rules & regulations which compromises MAN severely.

This transition is all about shifting from limited liability/responsibility to full liability/responsibility. This full responsibility is all about caring for our health, nature all around us, clean uncorrupted (pure) water and food, partner/co-creator, children, shelter, animal-friends in partnership, etc. In "The System", we are already together destroying each other - we have to come together to create peace together so that we can all have peace. We cannot live peacefully when we are islands, not taking full responsibility for the lives of those around us until EVERYONE can take full responsibility for their life, which means that EVERYONE is healed of system trauma. In "The System", we all come together to make slaves of each other - now is the moment to come together to set each other free, to live for each other's freedom, peace, joy and abundance. Once we have set each other free, we are free.

The Cristian Family November 2006

The Cristian Family Declaration

The Cristian family and The Love for Life Campaign are apolitical, non-religious, non-violent, anti weapons, anti drugs (both pharmaceutical and recreational) and anti any ideology that denies the existence of Do No Harm Communities (Kindoms) and suppresses the uniqueness and freedom of all men, women and children.

The Cristian family and our Love For Life work is unaligned to any big business corporation, intelligence agency, government body, "system" law, "system" think tanks, "system" green or environmental movements, religion, cult, sect, society (fraternity, brotherhood, sisterhood, order, club, etc,) secret or not, hidden agenda, law or sovereignty group, occult, esoteric, New Age or Old Age.

The Cristian family supports and promotes the remedy that brings an everlasting peace, freedom, truth, joy, abundance and do no harm for all of life without causing loss of uniqueness or the need for having slaves and rulers. We are not into following the one in front or being shepherds for sheeple. Most importantly, we take full-responsibility for everything we think, feel and do.

The Cristian family are not Christians.

Arthur & Fiona Cristian
Love For Life

December 2006

The Cristian Family November 2006


Being of clear brain, heart and intention, we each declare the following to be true:

• We have no intention of ending our own lives.

• We will not tolerate suppression of truth, ideas, freedom, or our work. We stand for freedom of speech.

• We stand together to support others in the expression of truths and freedom to speak out no matter how radical those ideas may seem.

• Standing for freedom takes courage; together we shall be strong in the face of all odds.

• If it is ever claimed that we have committed suicide, encountered an unfortunate accident, died of sickness/disease, disappeared, been institutionalized, or sold out financially or in any other way to self-interested factions, we declare those claims false and fabricated.

• We testify, assert and affirm without reservation, on behalf of all those who have dedicated their lives to the ending of secrecy and the promotion of freedom of thought, ideas and expression that we shall prevail.

• We Do Not Have Multiple Personality Disorders

Update Regarding The Love For Life
Home Page And Quick User Guide

We are turning the Love for Life Quick User Guide into a blog of all the main insights of our work since March 2005, whether through articles, videos, podcasts or discussions/debates.

As we do not have the time to compile everything we have written into a book, as many have suggested we do, compiling all our most important work into one area of the website is a way of providing easy access to this work so those interested are able to fully comprehend the big picture.

Instead of having to find our different articles, videos, etc, in various parts of the website, it will all be accessible here: and here:

Love For Life Videos

As amateurs and posted in the Quick User Guide below the Facebook links, we're currently creating and posting a series of videos called "The Dream Of Life" which covers the ground of all the Love For Life insights. We plan to have the videos completed by December 31st 2012. Once this is behind us, our intention is to create a 2 hour or so video covering the body of this work. All videos are embedded in the quick user guide and uploaded in Arthur's YouTube channel:

Love For Life Music

We have started recording songs, with others, that express the themes of Love For Life. They are now being posted on Arthur's YouTube channel: and are embedded in the quick user guide We have over 100 songs to record. A few rough demos have already been used as the soundtrack on the first "Dream of Life" video.

About Us - Love For Life & The Cristian Family

Also, everything we, the Cristian family, have gone through, from bank fraud and the theft of the family home to death threats and attempts on Arthur's life, is documented in the Quick User Guide too. If you, the reader, are prepared to put the effort in, you will comprehend the extent to which we have all been tricked into becoming slaves, giving up our uniqueness and our full-responsibility for life and destroying everything of life to the point where life is in danger of dying out completely. You will also comprehend the remedy to all this chaos; a remedy that requires only love for life and the determination to do what needs to be done. Though our focus is very strongly on the remedy that creates a world of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance and Do No Harm for all of life without loss of uniqueness or the need for slaves and rulers, we realise that it is vital to comprehend how to get there and what stops us from getting there. This is why there is so much information on the hows and whys of everything going wrong in the world today. We are not into peddling conspiracy theories, we are into routing out all forms of organised crime.

NSW Jewish Board Of Deputies
Has Threatened To Shut Down
The Love For Life Website

No Freedom Of Speech - No Freedom Of Thought

Love For Life does not support harm doing in any shape or form. However, we are supporters of free speech and post articles, documentaries, etc, that represent a wide cross section of ideas. See the Love For Life extensive research library where over 6000 documents, articles and videos are posted: We clearly see the evidence of the destruction to MAN and the earth that has been caused by ALL religions over the centuries and are therefore not supporters of religions, cults, sects or any group that demands conformity of thought, speech or action, or has rules, regulations or rituals that must be followed. Religions, nationalities and cultural "identities" are formed as a result of the brainwashing we receive from childhood. They are part of the tactics the Establishment uses to keep us all divided from one another and fighting one another.

All religions promote discrimination and division, leading to hatred and even violence and murder. None of them have yet to produce a remedy to all the suffering, poverty, unhappiness and discrimination in the world. If any religion truly had the remedy to all the suffering on earth, there would no longer be any suffering. What have Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, atheism and the New Age done to end the suffering in the world?

Since December 2006, there have been many attempts to take down the Love For Life website. Any attempts have been thwarted by Love For Life supporters inundating the harm-doers with emails, etc, objecting to them taking down the website for a variety of reasons. The trouble makers usually back off when they realise that they can post all their views, arguments, beliefs, etc, in the Love For Life website without censorship or restriction imposed. They get to see that even the Queen, Pope, Prime Minister, President of America, etc, can post all their views without hindrance or sabotage and that we support freedom of speech/thought which means we support the right of all sides to express their views.

Of note, there is a vast amount of information posted in the Love For Life website which we do not agree with but we leave it all up because we refuse to be biased, opinionated or self-centered/self-serving. Of the many thousands of comments posted over the years we have only removed posts containing secret links to commercial advertisements, terrible foul language, threats of violence and death, etc, and attacks on other people's characters that avoid the subject/debate at hand. Besides links to advertisements, we have taken down less than six comments due to the above. We usually leave everything up, all warts and all, even those posts threatening to do terrible things to Fiona, our children, our dogs, our friends, family & supporters, etc.

The Love For Life website has information from all sides on many subjects, whether about Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Law, health, psychology, mind control, vaccination, aspartame, MSG, Chemtrails etc. There are over 11,000 articles, documentaries etc on the website and they are so diverse that we are sure that everyone would be able to find something they loved and something they hated, if they took the time to search. If we removed all the articles hated by everyone, there would probably be nothing left! We are not anti anyone but freedom of speech is freedom of speech and no one should condemn the work of another without taking the time to research the subject themselves. Yes, there are articles by those who have a less-than-rosy-viewpoint of Judaism, but there are also articles on the dark side of Tibetan Buddhism (and it is very dark) for those who are interested in the truth: Tibet - Buddhism - Dalai Lama: Should the authors of these articles be abused and imprisoned for daring to challenge the widely conceived reputation of Buddhism as being the religion of peace and love and that of the Dalai Lama as a saint, or should those interested be allowed to study the work and come to their own conclusions? The same applies to all the articles, documentaries, etc, about Christianity, Islam, Freemasonry, New World Order, etc.

The Love for Life website also shows how the Rule of Law, the Bar, the Government, the Monarchy, the system of commerce, the local, national and multi/trans-national private corporations, all the courses and careers on offer from our universities, all the educators, scientists, academics and experts, the aristocrats and the Establishment bloodlines have also done NOTHING to end the suffering in the world. The website maps the insanity of a world where there is no help for those in need, just as there was no help available for us when we were victims of terrible bank fraud: "NSW Supreme Court Case - Macquarie Bank/Perpetual Limited vs Fiona Cristian - Victims Of Bank Fraud Condoned By Judges" (orchestrated, condoned and protected by an international crime syndicate/terrorist organisation of judges, barristers, registrars, lawyers, politicians, banksters, big business representatives, media moguls and other lackeys who, all together, put up a wall of silence despite our trying many, many avenues. After the family home was stolen and business destroyed we were left close to poverty and destitution caring for 4 young daughters. Three years later not much has changed regardless of all our efforts. Where were all the followers of all the religions to help us? Or do we have to be members of those religions to receive help from others involved in them?

The New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies accused us of being anti - Jewish, see: and because we had posted an excerpt from James von Brun's book: Kill the Best Gentiles: in which he blames Jews for the problems of the world. Obviously this is not our view because of what we have stated above. We do not hate anyone, whatever religion they follow. We are always open to talk to any religious leader or politician and meet with any judge, member of the Bar, experts, academics, educators etc to share the remedy we offer that heals all the divisions between MAN and MAN, and MAN and the EARTH.

Today, a representative of the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies is threatening to close the website down, because they have decided it is anti - Jewish and that we promote racism. What has the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies done to end the suffering in the world? Can they show that they are concerned with the suffering of ALL men, women and children AND ARE SEEN TO BE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT or are they only concerned with Jewish affairs? If so, they, along with all the other religions that only care for their own, are part of the problem, not part of the solution. The man who rang Arthur today was only concerned with Jewish affairs; he was not interested in our intentions or in anybody else, just as most Christians, Muslims, Sikhs, Catholics, etc, are only interested in their own. While we separate ourselves into groups, dividing ourselves from others with rules, regulations, rituals, procedures and conditions, we will never solve our problems.

No matter what we in the Western World Civilisation of Commerce have been promised by our politicians, religious leaders, scientists, educators, philosophers, etc, for the past two hundred years, all we have seen is ever-increasing destruction of men, women and children and the earth. None of the so-called experts and leaders we have been taught to rely on are coming up with a solution and none of them are taking full-responsibility for the fact that they can't handle the problem. All religious books talk about end times full of destruction and suffering but why do we have to follow this program when there is an alternative to hatred, mayhem and death? Why are our leaders following the program of destruction and death rather than exploring the alternatives? It seems that any mainstream politician, priest or academic are only interested in supporting the RULES OF THE DIVIDE, that maintain the haves and the have nots. For 200+ years, 99% of the world population have been so trained to pass on their responsibility for themselves, others and the earth, that the 1% of the population that make up the leaders of the rest of us are making all the decisions leading to the destruction of all of us and the earth. Let's not forget the education system that brainwashes the 99% of the population that we are free and have equal rights while, in fact, we are feathering the nests of those at the top.

At the root of all our problems is self-centredness, an unwillingness nurtured by the Establishment that keeps us concerned only with our own needs rather than the needs of others around us and the Earth. Instead of creating and releasing acts of love for those around us as gifts to benefit them and the earth, we take, take and take, until there is nothing left. The whole point of the Love for Life website is to show people the root of all our problems and to share the remedy. The extensive research library is there to attract browsers and to provide access to information not available through mainstream channels. If the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies can, after careful examination of our work, prove that anything we are saying is wrong, we will be happy to accept their proof. If they cannot, and they are still insistent on closing the website down, they will be showing themselves to be traitors to MAN because they are not interested in pursuing any avenue that can end the suffering in the world.

All religions, corporations and organisations that support and maintain the Western World Civilisation of Commerce are part of the problem because our civilisation is a world of haves and have nots, racism, violence, hatred, poverty, sickness, discrimination, abuse, starvation, homelessness, corruption, collusion, vindictiveness, social unrest, arrogance, ignorance, fear, war and chaos. While we support civilisation, we support death and destruction because ALL civilisations that have ever existed are apocalyptic by design.

If we truly want peace on earth and freedom for all, we have to let go of all that which keeps us divided, and come together as MAN, conscious living co-creators of creation. The Love For Life website offers a remedy to the problems we all face in the form of DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES: For more details see here: and here: - We also highly recommend that everyone read the brilliant Russian books called The Ringing Cedars: - The Love For Life Website Homepage also provides lots of inspiring remedy based information: - If you want to be kept up to date with our work please register to the Love For Life Mailing List here: We usually send two postings per month. Presently (September 2011) there are over 7000 registrations reaching over 500,000 readers across Earth. The website now (September 2011) receives up to 12 million hits per month. Since December 2006, over 100 million people have visited the Love For Life website.

Clarification Regarding Our Intentions
Behind The Use Of Donations

The Love For Life website is offered for free without a fee and without any conditions attached. If people are inspired to donate money, then we accept their gift and have provided an avenue for them to support the work we do through Fiona's Paypal or ANZ bank account There is no obligation whatsoever to donate and all are equally welcome to our work and to our "time", whether they donate or not. Over the last 9 years, all the Love For Life work has been put out for free and it has often been donations from supporters that have enabled us to renew the domain name, etc, to keep the website going. While some complain that we have an avenue for donations, others complained when we didn't! Either use it or don't - the choice is yours.

Since Love For Life started March 2005 and website December 2006, Arthur has worked 16 hours a day, 7 days a week unpaid for much of this period, putting together the website and sharing insights to wake people up to what has been done to them, whether through the 11,500+ individual articles, videos, podcasts, debates, discussions, pdf's, research documents, etc, found amongst the 8,500+ posts, as well as helping many, many men and women over the phone, and through email, website correspondence, Facebook and YouTube, and creating the Love For Life food forest vege garden and Love For Life music recording studio. This is our life is a gift commitment to serve MAN/Nature/Earth but we are still severely compromised by "The System" and still have to give to Caesar what is claimed to belong to Caesar, which is where the donations help us.
