In 2020 drugs will be legal but junk food will be banned
[NOTE: Link to The Australian's report on the legalise drugs idea. Somewhere on the Oz site they should address the food nazis.]
Nannys at Work, eh?
Cannot get idiots off drugs using current methods so, instead, the medical stream of the 2020 summit wants to legalise all drugs and set up a whole system so that government workers can anaesthetise members of the population with those now-legal drugs.
But junk food, bad. Natch.
Isn't this sort of thinking just so tired? I got your solution to drug problems. An amnesty. An amnesty so all the folks who have never taken drugs get to beat to death those who have.
You watch and see the drug use disappear. Drugs are not addicitive. Junk food is not addictive. People just get into habits that they know they shoud stop but they lack an incentive to do so. How do I know this is true? If you stuck a fat person in the jungle being chased by something for days and days they would not eat and they would get lots of exercise. They would lose weight. They would not have a 'slow metabolism' and 'big bones'. They would eat less and move more.
If you stuck a junkie in the jungle, getting chased or not, for days, he would walk out of the jungle at the end of it having gone healthily and happily without his stinking drugs, thereby proving that his body will not breakdown if he does not get his 'hit'.
There. That is my big idea. An amnesty. Yes.
