Hard times don't exist in nature the way they do for us. Strife is forged. Fix it.

The War on Drugs resulted in endless misery and bloodshed.

Legalise them. Remind yourself of alcohol prohibition. Learn from history.

Look at the corruption. The poverty. The way we treat the original inhabitants of this country...

Socrates was right. You'd kill him again too.

The war on drugs resulted in endless misery and bloodshed and if all drugs (including heroin, fentanyl, methamphetamine, cocaine - which are pharmacologically on par, actually better for your health when used chronically than alcohol; more potency = less toxicity and side effects) - if all drugs were legal, regulated, sold pure in pharmacies, a complete amelioration of the status quo would be observed, as seen Portugal with changes in polices resulting in halved death rates by heroin overdose and in Sweden where possession of a personal amount of most substances that are illegal here was decriminalised, resulting in lesser social harm and higher quality of life. 

If you think just because something is available people can and will take it and therefore these substances should stay prohibited, please be reminded of what happened during Alcohol Prohibition in the 30's. Didn't turn out well, did it? You're wrong. Leave your vanity aside and swallow your pride. Don't trust authority. Challenge authority. I'm not asking you to trust me either. Think for yourself. 

The people have to keep check on the government, not just the other way around, that's what was in mind when democracy was invented. Too bad it clearly doesn't work. 

Look at the corruption. The poverty. The way we treat the original inhabitants of this country. The complete decimation of the environment on every conceivable level. The military-industrial complex pumping in full swing. They control policy. We just sit on our asses with our VBs and catch flash news Murdoch propaganda between ad breaks watching the footy and game shows and don't give a fuck about anything that's actually important in this world.

Socrates was right. You'd kill him again too.
