Hoist On Their Own Petard (And Disappearing In A Cloud Of Smoke?)

Chris Snowden, Velvet Glove Iron Fist, has a thought provoking post detailing a speech he recently gave at the International Harm Reduction Conference in Liverpool. A well-argued, erudite and most sensible viewpoint.

An example of those, who in supplying the means of pleasure for a section of society, then recognising which way the 'wind is blowing', diversify into supplying the means of negating said pleasure - all for the sake of money - whilst continuing the supply of that pleasure!

An example of ''Capitalism', which I support, at its most hyprocritical best! But hey, better that than the Socialist creed of 'Do as you are told'; 'Forget personal freedom of choice' doctrine. 

Neither will I mention the mentality of those entering an area of employment in which, once they have achieved their aims, are promptly redundant! But then, that is one of the drawbacks of choice - is it not?

I'm surprised there hasn't been more questioning about the removal of our freedoms during this campaign. Or have the meedia been warned off the subject?
