Utopians and the War on Drugs September 19, 2016

Man cannot perfect man.  Man cannot perfect the Earth.  Personally I am a Christian and I believe in the fall of mankind due to sin and the corruption of this reality as a direct consequence of that fall from grace.

That is my personal belief.  It is what centers and supports me.  However, if you have other beliefs I don’t think I would have to do much investigation to find that everyone else can see that perfection is not the natural state of either mankind or this world.  Even the most militant atheist who knows there is no god and fights like hell against anyone who believes there is admits that this is not perfect.  Even Lenin wanted to perfect it, Stalin had five year plan after five year plan to make it better, Mao took a Great Leap Forward into a Cultural Revolution that nearly destroyed his country, why?  Because he sought to perfect it and what did he achieve?  The same as all the rest they proved that they could at least create hell on earth.

Utopians of every stripe believe that mankind through their own efforts can create heaven on earth.  As pointed out above that hasn’t worked out so well before.  It will never work out because it is impossible.  We cannot legislate people to perfection.

How did the Mafia get so powerful?  Prohibition of alcohol created the market place that poured hundreds of millions of dollars into their pockets and allowed them to corrupt politician, judges and police.  It raised them from street gangs to criminal empires controlling unions and elections.  It gave them the power to intimidate, kill, and steal with impunity.

Back then people had enough respect for the Constitution to realize it took an amendment to ban a product.  It also took an amendment to make it legal again.  The prohibition on Marijuana has been and is merely a law that could be changed at any time.  It is also a law, like so many of our laws, not founded on any constitutional basis at all.  Nowhere in the Constitution is the Federal Government given the power to legislate what substances a citizen may or may not ingest.  This is like so many other powers one that our over-the-top bureaucratic leviathan abrogated unto itself as a supine populace accepts that anything that is legal is moral, just and within the bounds of a paternalistic cradle-to-grave central government.

There are more people in jail because of the war on drugs than for anything else.  There are people serving decades for having a joint in their pocket while the drug lords, flush with money like Al Capone buy cops and judges and in general corrupt our system while escaping any penalty for breaking the law.

It is time to stop this oppressive war on Americans, end prohibition, expand the tax base, eliminate the major source of funding for organized crime, and let our supposedly free citizens run their own lives.

Americans are the great Legal Hypocrites. They shutter at the thought of what happened under the Nazis yet thousands of sluts everyday murder their children through abortion because it’s legal, it’s OK. Yet they are so ignorant that they do not realize that not one atrocity the Nazis ever committed was against the law. It was all legal because the Nazis made the laws. People are so stupid. The gene pool could certainly need a cleansing. Maybe after they elect Killary she will begin mass exterminations.
