When you look at the drug penalties in the modern part of europe vs the us, doesnt it seem like the uber tolerant countries like germany are now genuinely concerned with peoples well being and the americans with their intolerance are the new nazis? Think about bill oreilly. Hes like a nazi when it comes to the drug war.
It seems like americans in general are ridiculously righteous because of what we did in ww2. Just because the us was on what could be considered the right side of history should not mean that we are forever innocent and that everything we do is done with the approval of god.
I mean we have 20 thousand people dying every year because of opiate overdoses, while eu countries that have adopted full agonist opiate substitution treatments have sent that number towards zero.
why would americans rather have people die than get high legally?
