The war on the future

The war on drugs is as lost as the war on terror, no matter how many pronouncements come out of Washington.  Except that unlike the victory we declared in Vietnam, we can’t really then just run away from either of those.

As it is now, we imprison the most capable coming out of the poverty areas, effectively removing them from the breeding pool.  The government has little impact on the sowing of drugs into the neighborhoods.  The private sector always is much more effective at meeting a market demand.  If the government were in the drug supplying business, then it would be but a short time before there were either availability or quality issues.  No such problem with the free market.  So the free market is providing multiple variants of Huxley’s Soma to a populace that has had family structure destroyed and opportunity removed.

If you know anything about niche pressure in evolution or the effect of selective breeding raising dogs, you know that it takes just a few generations to make marked changes in the gene pool.  Dogs get breed for particular characteristics to meet AKC standards.  The government is fulfilling the vision of Planned Parenthood’s Sanger, not by eugenically killing, but rather breeding ineffectual citizens who will generate little of use to the country except predictable votes, by the war on drugs where they continually take the most capable out of the population and lock them up.

Government bred Eloi*

*In H. G. Wells’ book, the Time Machine, the protagonist travels to the fuure where he meets the Eloi, a passive childlike race of people who do no work, lack both curiousity and discipline, eat mostly fruit, live in a deteriorating environment, who spend the day engaged in sensual activities and and are preyed upon by a sinister, more powerful class.  Sounds a little like California.

    I’ve always opposed the “war on drugs” on grounds that there is an unalienable right to stupidity. Your take is really interesting here, drrik.
