Law: Blackstone Ratio
In criminal law, Blackstone's ratio (also known as the Blackstone ratio or Blackstone's formulation) is the idea that:"It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."as expressed by the English jurist William Blackstone in his seminal work Commentaries on the Laws of England, published in the 1760s.The idea subsequently became a staple of legal thinking in Anglo-Saxon jurisdictions and continues to be a topic of debate. There is also a long pre-history of similar sentiments going back centuries in a variety of legal traditions. The message that government and the courts must err on the side of bringing in verdicts of innocence has remained constant.

Law: Jus Soli
Jus soli (meaning "right of soil"), commonly referred to as birthright citizenship, is the right of anyone born in the territory of a state to nationality or citizenship.Jus soli was part of the English common law, in contrast to jus sanguinis, which derives from the Roman law that influenced the civil-law systems of mainland Europe. Jus soli is the predominant rule in the Americas, but it is rare elsewhere. Since the 27th Amendment of the Constitution of Ireland was enacted in 2004, no European country grants citizenship based on unconditional or near-unconditional jus soli.

Law: Slaughter-House Cases
The Slaughter-House Cases was a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that held that the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution only protects the legal rights that are associated with federal U.S. citizenship, not those that pertain to state citizenship. It was a blow to the emancipation of chattel slaves, protecting state right to persecute black citizens at the behest of white ethno-supremacist state institutions.Ruling: The 14th Amendment only protects the privileges and immunities pertaining to citizenship of the United States, not those that pertain to state citizenship.

Law: Supreme Court Justice Bradley
"The people of this country brought with them to its shores the rights of Englishmen, the rights which had been wrested from English sovereigns at various periods of the nation's history.... England has no written constitution, it is true, but it has an unwritten one, resting in the acknowledged, and frequently declared, privileges of Parliament and the people, to violate which in any material respect would produce a revolution in an hour. A violation of one of the fundamental principles of that constitution in the Colonies, namely, the principle that recognizes the property of the people as their own, and which, therefore, regards all taxes for the support of government as gifts of the people through their representatives, and regards taxation without representation as subversive of free government, was the origin of our own revolution."

Lit: Be Night Quiet
Night quiet. Quiet in sound, but also respite from a billion photons constantly insistently clamouring LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME. Night quiet, imagination can emerge - in the silent unflooded moments - slowly opening the glisten of phantasmagoria butterfly wings. Night quiet, love and life and free from time's intrusive discord, enlivenen by the foreknowledge of a dawn that'll come, perhaps a moment to marvel at sunrise serene insouciant colour at first soft soon blunderbuss clouds blood shards yadda, city awakening, photons hammering, fantasy quiet night silence over. // Night quiet wake up soft shoe consciousness onto the stage. Alarm is a tumble or a descent on wires too fast!

Locus Coeruleus: Opioid Receptors + Clonidine

Clonidine down-regulates locus coeruleus

Opioids inhibit the firing of neurons in the locus coeruleus. When opioid consumption is stopped, the increased activity of the locus coeruleus contributes to the symptoms of opiate withdrawal. The α2 adrenergic receptor agonist clonidine is used to counteract this withdrawal effect by decreasing adrenergic neurotransmission from the locus coeruleus.

“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers…"
