Blog Comment – Slavery is alive and well, in fact, doing better than ever before. It was the moral ‘West’ that fought hard to drive down slavery. Now it appears it is the insatiable demands of the immoral or (for the ‘P.C Thugs’ reading this) ‘amoral West’ that now drives the predicates of this new slave market – Drugs, sex and fashion. Invariably illicit drugs are enmeshed in at least two of these arenas and drugs particularly are used to control and manipulate the most vulnerable.
The hedonistic and utterly self indulgent demands for ‘rights’ to use illicit drugs in such countries as the USA, UK and Australia, are some of the greatest drivers for social injustice on the planet – Legalising drugs will only release another market to overlay the current illegal one. A key component of the answer to this heinous issue, is for the careless and egocentric substances users to actually give more of a damn about their ‘fellow human beings’ than for their own drug use! Ah, yes, but that’s right, it’s hard to make that ‘justice call’ when you’re too busy trying to get ‘high’, yet again!
