“From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption. After all has been said and so little done, the truth about the climate crisis — inconvenient as ever — must still be faced.”
– Al Gore
The science is settled: The only way to redeem humanity is to give government more control over our daily lives, like helping solve alcoholism by adding poison to industrial alcohol during Prohibition.
“During Prohibition, however, an official sense of higher purpose kept the poisoning program in place. As the Chicago Tribune editorialized in 1927: ‘Normally, no American government would engage in such business. … It is only in the curious fanaticism of Prohibition that any means, however barbarous, are considered justified.’ Others, however, accused lawmakers opposed to the poisoning plan of being in cahoots with criminals and argued that bootleggers and their law-breaking alcoholic customers deserved no sympathy. ‘Must Uncle Sam guarantee safety first for souses?” asked Nebraska’s Omaha Bee.’ “
Ok, so what a few hundred people had to die: We’re talking higher purpose here, people, we’re talking about using the rule of law to redeem humanity!
