I have nothing against liberals. I consider myself to be one. But they never seem to really understand the full problem with the drug war. If you want to read a typical liberal article on this subject, check out Karolina Zieba's post entitled "In case you choose not to say no to drugs, kids," published September 10, 2018, in The Student Newspaper.
She seems to mean well and she argues against harsh penalties for drug possession, etc., but like almost every other liberal on the planet, she fails to grasp the full evil of the drug war, writing instead as if the drug war was a good idea which cannot work or which needs to be tweaked significantly in order to be fair. To which I say, no: the drug war needs to be eliminated root and branch. It has no right to succeed. Points that I attempt to make in the comment that I have posted below.
