Thoughts on the article (assuming you read it)?
This stuff usually stays in the background until it becomes personal.

It's a joke, a travesty. It's also why I, quite frankly, have no sympathy.

There's no way you aren't aware of this so I'm just going to assume you're being willfully stupid and therefore devoid of any reason. You tend to not provide any quality posts either, so I'm just going to put you on ignore.
In his case I don't think it is willfully.

I mentioned the uptick in addiction being caused by pill pushers, that is it, it's not a black, white issue it's a human issue. You are such a racist, and love to play victim. I am not responsible for your problems, be an adult and deal with them instead of blaming white people for everything.

If you have something to say to me, say it, quit posting through other people to insult me.

I don't think that there was ever any vested interest in having compassion for drug addicts of any flavor. Acid casualties were, and are, derided as lunatics and schizophrenics instead of truly helping what went wrong with them. I don't think that treating the crack epidemic was ever the option. I don't think anyone wanted to fix it, and I still don't think that anyone wants to fix the current issues that are facing not only the inner cities but the suburbs and the rural areas.

There's reasons why these people are turning to these drugs and they need to be addressed. I think that there is a hole in society, a gap left by materialism and the endless pursuit of a dream that is long dead, which cannot be filled properly. People just don't have a meaning to live, and I think once people have this realization, they turn to something that numbs those thoughts, or perhaps gives some sort of meaning to them.


Yes.
