This is a good documentary showing the kinds of societal problems liberals create when they advance their Utopian schemes. Los Angeles was not like this during the 1940’s or the 1950s. Yet as soon as liberals began to hijack this once great nation beginning in the 1960s, it wasn’t long before sections like Skid Row in Los Angeles became the norm in almost every major U.S. city.
Don’t misunderstand me. I’m not taking away the responsibility these ‘homeless’ folks have for their own life decisions, but only that liberals manage to always create societies where these kinds of things can flourish.
What you’re witnessing on Skid Row is not just the depravity of humans, but the inability of liberal social policies to improve life and to ‘transform’ society when they are in charge. These ‘Tent Towns’ only increase when liberals influence the culture and play a major role in determining national policies to combat poverty, unemployment, widespread drug addiction, welfare dependency, and other social ills.
A book you’re not supposed to read
Liberals always make everything worse, and this is why our national problems are never solved. Their policies are misguided at the outset, and so the ‘solutions’ they propose to ‘fix’ the very problems they’ve created prove ineffectual, in part, because liberals never bother to question their most basic assumptions about everything. They are unable to think outside of their box in large measure because they are close-minded and because they are grossly ignorant of human nature. In other words, they don’t understand the very people (humans) they propose to ‘help,’ and so they engage in endless and costly pursuits in an attempt to create their mythical societies.
Observe also that liberals are never held accountable for their social experiments. They respond to their massive social engineering failures by either doubling-down on their stupidity in the form of spending more tax dollars to ‘fix’ the problem, or they move on to some other disastrous and wasteful government pursuit. Either way, they are never called to account for what they design and implement. They make us all suffer.
Recognize also that Skid Row’s ‘Tent Town’ is America’s future if all drugs are legalized. This will be the destiny of a massive number of Americans once they are given the ‘green light’ by the feds to ingest and shoot-up whatever they want. The current marijuana policies throughout the states, including widespread acceptance of the substance among a growing number of Americans for ‘recreational use,’ is proof of how something originally designed for seriously ill patients can be abused. It won’t be long before an entire marijuana-addiction industry will be created (if it hasn’t happened already?).
Look also at how many children in our nation’s middle schools and high schools are already experienced marijuana users and even addicted to it. America’s addiction epidemic is guaranteed to reach epic proportions once all drugs are legalized and made available to everyone. If you don’t think drug legalization will encourage even more people to use and become addicted to it, you are horrifically naive.
This is not a matter of personal freedom but, rather, a matter of national suicide. A sane nation will not allow its people to commit wide-scale suicide and self-destruction. A sane nation will step in and prohibit all forms of national suicide no matter how many voices cry out for one’s ‘personal choice’ and ‘liberties’ on such matters.
Times have truly changed
Humans are such that if something makes them feel good or gives them a good high, they will abuse it until nothing else matters to them in life. Entire families, relationships, and even societies will be ruined by it. If people are allowed to consume strychnine and every weird narcotic concoction conceived in a laboratory, they will! This is the nature of humans whether we wish to believe it or not.
Think also of the strange biological and genetic oddities, including deformities, that will arise among future generations whose body chemicals have been altered as a result of long-term drug use? How much will this alone cost society? What will our grandchildren look like? What kinds of strange addictions will they be born with? These questions are rarely faced by the pro-legalization crowd because of the obvious problems they present to their agenda.
Every one of these Skid Row tent dwellers, at one time, likely thought they could handle their alcohol and drugs. It wasn’t long before experience and human biology dictated to them that they couldn’t. But by then it was too late.
As I’ve said before, a doped-up nation is a defeated nation.
Skid Row’s ‘Tent Town’ is America’s future if insane liberal social policies are not jettisoned. This will also be our future if all drugs are legalized and made available to whoever wants it.
Really bad advice
