It All Went According To Plan

John Hoge is no dope, even though he favors decriminalizing marijuana.

His reasoning makes perfect sense to me:

…prohibition (of drugs or booze or handguns or whatever) was one of the signal achievements of early 20th-century Progressivism. Fortunately (or unfortunately), the crime and violence associated with alcohol prohibition brought Americans to their senses in only 13 years.

A hundred years ago, our betters the Progressives sold the country on the idea that because some people couldn’t responsibly handle booze and drugs, that none of us should have access to them. If we just let the smarter, wiser, better educated, more refined elites control us, everything will be just fine.

Do take the time to click here and read the rest of John’s post.

I’d like to add an addendum to one of his points…

He wrote: ‘Fortunately (or unfortunately), the crime and violence associated with alcohol prohibition brought Americans to their senses in only 13 years’.

Indeed, but, by then, Organized Crime was so well entrenched in America that it survived and became a plague on this country.

I’m sure Saul Alinksy was very happy that came to pass.
