Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why oh why do so many addicts need to cling to such excuses?

For the same reasons of scope that so many "reformers" need to cling to such morality: the body is the limit of society. If a group cannot control (determine) socially acceptable minimum (law), just one body becomes the target or symbol of the group's inchoate ideological frustrations to be picked (on).

You will note, I hope, the conscpicous absence of opposition, organized by fruits such as drunks, pot heads, promiscuous, unmarried, trans, (oops)LB, urban and rural poor, etc etc, to arguments presented by the most shrill defenders of public safety and moral rectitude.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
