The U.S. "War On Drugs" Is A Lost Cause!

special thanks to Mr. David Bergland

SHOULD AMERICA RE-LEGALIZE DRUGS?

Satanists, like most Americans, demand to be safe at home and on the streets. Satanists would like everyone to be healthy and free of drug dependence. But drug laws don't help, they make things worse! The professional politicians scramble to make names for themselves as tough anti-drug warriors, while the experts agree that the "war on drugs" has been lost, and could never be won. The tragic victims of that war are your personal liberty and its companion, responsibility. The masses must have their opiate.

THE LESSONS OF PROHIBITION

In the 1920's, alcohol was made illegal by Prohibition. The result: Organized Crime. Criminals jumped at the chance to supply the demand for liquor. The streets became battle grounds. The criminals bought off law enforcement and judges. Adulterated booze blinded and killed people. Civil rights were trampled in the hopeless attempt to keep people from drinking.

When the American people saw what Prohibition was doing to them, they supported its repeal. When they succeeded, most states legalized liquor and the criminal gangs were out of the liquor business.

Today's war on drugs is a re-run of Prohibition. Approximately 40 million Americans are occasional, peaceful users of some illegal drug who are no threat to anyone. They are not going to stop. The laws don't and can't stop drug use.

ORGANIZED CRIME PROFITS

Whenever there is great demand for a product and government makes it illegal, a black market always appears to supply the demand. The price of the product rises dramatically and the opportunity for huge profits is obvious. The criminal gangs love the situation, making millions. They kill other drug dealers, along with innocent people caught in the crossfire, to protect their territory. They corrupt police and courts. Pushers sell adulterated dope and experimental drugs, causing injury and death. And because drugs are illegal, their victims have no recourse.

CRIME INCREASES

Half the cost of law enforcement and prisons are squandered on drug related crime. Of all drug users, a relative few are addicts who commit crimes daily to supply artificially expensive habits. They are the robbers, car thieves and burglars who make our homes and streets unsafe.

AN AMERICAN POLICE STATE

Civil liberties suffer. We are all "suspects," subject to random urine tests, highway check points and spying into our personal finances. Your property can be seized without trial, if the police merely claim you got it with drug profits. Doing business with cash makes you suspect. America is becoming a police state because of the war on drugs.

AMERICA CAN HANDLE LEGAL DRUGS

Today's illegal drugs were legal before 1914. Cocaine was even found in the original Coca-Cola recipe. Americans had few problems with cocaine, opium, heroin or marijuana. Drugs were inexpensive; crime was low. Most users handled their drug of choice and lived normal, productive lives. Addicts out of control were a tiny minority.

The first laws prohibiting drugs were racist in origin - to prevent Chinese laborers from using opium and to prevent blacks and Hispanics from using cocaine and marijuana. That was unjust and unfair, just as it is unjust and unfair to make criminals of peaceful drug users today.

People will always use alcohol, tobacco, marijuana or other drugs. Most are not addicts, they are social drinkers or occasional users. Legal drugs would be inexpensive, so even addicts could support their habits with honest work, rather than by crime. Organized crime would be deprived of its profits. The police could return to protecting us from real criminals; and there would be room enough in existing prisons for them.

TRY PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY

Eventually, "drugs" will become legal and mortals will take responsibility for themselves. Drug abuse is a tragedy and a sickness. Criminal laws only drive the problem underground and put money in the pockets of the criminal class.

With drugs legal, compassionate people could do more to educate and rehabilitate drug users who seek help. Drugs should be legal. Individuals have the right to decide for themselves what to put in their bodies, so long as they take responsibility for their own actions.

Гледам, че "наркотичната" тема приключи - всички си казахте мненията и разсъждавахте по тях. По този въпрос (както и по почти всички други) няма единна истина. Всеки е прав за себе си от позицията, от която изхожда. Пиша тук, защото тази тема е философски настроена и без излишни воини, и защото някой тук (мисля че беше Наркос) каза нещо много важно "Никой няма право да ми казва какво ще правя, ако действието ми засяга само мен". И докато при алкохола и наркотиците съществува възможността да се качиш на кола и да засегнеш и други, то с какво можеш да застрашиш обществото ако не си сложиш колана (докато си в МПС)?!?!?!?!? Тъпите ОБИРДЖИИ (т.е. гласувалите закона) ни казват "статистически е доказано, че случаите, в които помага са повече, от които - вреди". Те за господ ли се изживяват, та ще ме задължават по какъв начин да се предпазвам! Та това си е моя живот, по дяволите, и след като постъпката ми не вреди на обществото, НЯМАТ ПРАВО ДА СЕ НАМЕСВАТ!!! Преди години мой приятел го УБИ колана (при страниче удар с друга кола, докато седящият зад него (без колан) се размина със счупен крак, въпреки че пораженията по колата при него бяха по-големи). Оня ден видях катастрофа (вече беше станала) с 2-ма убити - отново заради колани! До колото успях да си обясня ситуацията, единият от тях е виновен (изпреварва на място с ограничена видимост), но другият... Правят к'во правят и докарват нещата до страничен удар. Техни УБИИЦИ стават коланите! Как да сложа колан?!? Ама те си ме глобяват, взимат си ми точки и до някой ден ще ми оставят семейството без препитание!

Колкото до темата - само в джаза, рапа и гръцкото не съм намерил нещо да ме кефи. И в касическата музика, и блуса, и поп-фолка, и в... има неща които ми харесват, но все пак, за да ги слушам ми трябва известна настройка. За heavy, power, speed и melody metal такава не ми е нужна. Както и за hard rock. Radislav_Debian, пусни си "Левски", "Паисий", "Последен марш"... и знай, че не си сам!

Каква е връзката на метъла с Линукса - ами и за двете трябва да си бунтар. Естествено, има и изключения.
