    Exactly. Consumable alcohol should be just as illegal as drugs are.
    And the socially responsible cutting edge (cough) right-wing mentality once again adds nothing of any value to a dicussion.

    jeez

We have created the very culture that is producing the crime element, then we give it the seal of approval so that we don't have to acknowledge that we have screwed up. We collectively encourage single parenthood, demonize people who support "old-fashioned" values, and glorify dysfunction in movies, music, and on TV, then we can't figure out why things have changed, and we have an increasing number of societal members who can't function humanely.
    Yes, I'm very much inclined to agree with you; although I don't think we demonize people who support old fashined values; as I am one of those people, we rather demonize the Christian right who demonize anyone who disagrees with their religious dogma about life in general.

    I also think you're right about TV and the media. It would be nice if the mass media would be more honest as well and depict single parenthood in depressed neighborhoods for what they are; a generational trap that society at large does not pay enough attention to.

    Social Responsibility says you don't put anything in your body that will keep it from being able to react quickly to life-changing threats or decisions on a moment's notice. Alcohol and Drugs both fall into that category.

    I don't have a sense of humor. I had it surgically removed in my childhood to allow my ego to grow to its full size. There is no need for consumable alcohol in this society. Never has been and never will be. Nor is there a need for tobacco products.
