We need intoxicants to numb ourselves from the bad government to survive! Take away the self-medicating and you're going to have a lot of very sober
angry people. That's more dangerous than the intoxicated politically-angry kind, because when they are drunk, at least you can blame the booze.
Have you not noticed that in some countries right now, where liquor is prohibited, most of the adult males of the population resort to other forms of
filling their time, like crime, religious extremism, protesting unto rebellion, and making war? Sometimes, alcohol drinking is a variety of protest,
where an individual protests from participating in more sober civil engagement activities.
Maybe some liquor-free zones, like the roads, universities, and places of work would be good. But I just can't imagine prohibition 2.0 ever taking
flight. Alcoholic beverages are a universal human cultural thing. If you must become totalitarian over the drink, releasing another intoxicant from
legal captivity would be ideal. This means if you take away the alcohol, then either coc aine or marijuana ought to become legal again in the
US, I think.
I think it's a misled research on alcohol. Maybe alcoholism causes the deaths more than the alcohol. Everything in moderation.
