It would be a war that required the righteous with human heart to be stronger than those who have little personal will power other than to promote the addictive substance. The addicts have nothing to lose in the matter because if they could achieve they would not need or desire the addictive substance. Also they resent those who can achieve in the first place by taking the addictive substance out of jealousy for them so they have the motive/operand to harm them! So do we let them continue to prey on us? Do we allow them opportunity after opportunity to spread that cancer upon the human race? What choice do we have in the matter? What leadership to we have that does not believe in the addictive substance? There have been many families that have lost loved ones to the addictive substance but do they turn against it? Rarely! It killed a family member and they are complacent with that! I am not that same way!
Perhaps what most people don't realize but should is that the act of okaying yourself to take the addictive substance is the act of condemning yourself to guilt and punishment from any of your personal actions while on the addictive substance! The addict in effect is signing off that he is a criminal! He is stating that he would rather live under the delusion of not being legally responsible for his actions while he took the addictive substance! That accountability and the notion and understanding of its meaning need to be strictly taught and enforced. And here is why it never happens! If you start executing drunk drivers for killing people it is not too long after that that the alcohol business goes away! And back to the beginning of this article! They will fight so that it doesn't and not under their own volition because it is addictive! So how does or should society handle those who do not act under their own volition but commit crimes? The responsible thing is strict enforcement and also educating people as to the nature of addiction and loss of control for ones actions! And that is knowledge that never has to see dust on its book covers in the future of humanity!
And what if there was a race among us that loved the trouble that addictive substances caused! They loved to promote the addictive substance and all the human misery that followed along with it? What should be done about them? We can try and educate them as this article serves to do! But even when it hits home and kills a family member they do not care! Why? Because they have already developed a stubborn belief system that will not allow them to question any of their prior beliefs or actions.
