The timing is uncanny. Just a week or so after the death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman and a shit load of talking about heroin again we are told one of the bad guys in the drug business has been arrested by Mexican authorities. Surely more proof at how successful the war on drugs has been.
It’s not even worth mentioning who this drug dealer is because it won’t matter. Oh we’re all expected to believe the propaganda about how wonderful this is but why? It sounds like this guy was one dangerous asshole so I suppose prison is the best place for him to be but it won’t have one iota of an effect on the drug problem. I mean are we supposed to believe that the entire drug trade rests on this guy and that when caught it will all go away? Prediction: Things in Mexico are about to get real ugly.
This is nothing more than a golden opportunity for other aspiring drug kingpins. Expect plenty of bloodshed as various factions vie for control over the most lucrative drug route in the fucking world. No one is throwing in the towel on this plush market. No one. I wonder what it’s like to be in Sweden or Denmark and look at how pretend to deal with things. It must look like a bunch of caged baboons flinging shit at each other. It’s an embarrassment.
The only people that benefit from the war on drugs are law enforcement, the private prison system, the private probation system, pharmaceutical companies and of course the multibillion dollar treatment industry that has a success rate of about 2%. Only an asshole would support the war on drugs.
You might not like drugs or prostitution or whatever for various reasons. That’s fine but you are in utter denial (to borrow a treatment term) if you think any amount of enforcement or punishment will deter people from these activities. It’s been around forever and will always be around. You won’t change that but we could at least have some control over it unlike we what we have now. I realize that in this bipolar nation we can’t decided if we be puritanical or licentious and that every fucking thing has some moral judgment attached to it. This is one reason we can’t get shit down so it’s not even worth my while to make the case for legalizing drugs.
Here are your fucking options assholes. You can have junkies under state control or you can have junkies under no one’s control with a multitude of putrid criminals running the trade, killing people and costing us billions. There are no other options. Keep in mind that the greatest champions of the war on drugs are people whose salary depends on them not understanding the problem. What incentive does the DEA have to eradicate all illegal drug trade?
It’s all bullshit and the war on drugs is nothing more than an elaborate and costly charade like almost everything in our society these days. Once and awhile they catch someone or they jam up a supply of one drug to make room for another but they haven’t had any success if your measure of success is eradicating the drug trade. Not one iota. It’s another dog and pony show to keep the masses complacent and for the ruling class to make it look like they are actually doing something. Some cunt gets on TV standing next to a million pounds of whatever they deem evil and the dumb cunts in this country give them a round of applause.
The only silver lining here is that the brats of rich fucks are dropping dead from ODs. Once nice white kids from the leafy suburbs start getting affected, well, then it becomes an issue to be dealt with. You know how that goes but I wouldn’t hold my breath on anything happening in my lifetime.
