War on Drugs

The statement, "The War on Drugs is like the Inquisition" struck a chord with me. It made me think about societies thrawting the potential enlightenment of individuals for its own societal expediency. It also made me re-examine the cloud of assumptions that have been imprinted through my years of education in the public systems.
I used to think, "man, those SpA**** Inquisitors were baad", but I bet they thought about atheists like we think about drug-users today. We must check our assumptions so that we can live to up the ideals of truth, freedom, and human development.
Thanks to the Internet, the truth about things is finally getting heard.
