    Just because people agree doesn't make it "morality." Only most people agree. We are lucky to be in the majority, aren't we? What about something extremely divisive, like this topic we are discussing? Who is morally right, the majority? Is the majority always morally right?

    And when more and more people get involved with these inherently violent people, more and more people get hurt and die. No one would associate with those fuckers if it weren't for drugs.

    You live in a scary world, my friend. I feel for you. Everything seems so tinged with negativity and fear as if The Man is waiting outside the door to clap bracelets on you and throw you in the Black Iron Prison.

    Wow, now we've gotten down to the root of it. It took hundreds of posts, but now I get it. People who disagree with the majority are wrong and they are idiots. Or are you joking? Again, so outlandish a statement I can't tell.

    No. Our morals as a society are mostly shared by most people. Is this really that surprising?

    Well yeah, I mean they would if they could. I've done drugs, I can be locked up for it. Never mind the fact that it has never harmed anyone. Never mind the fact that I am a contributing member of society. That is scary. Thanks for your sympathy.

    For what it's worth. The laws are not made to be punitive. Not the way you think. The law exists to protect society. Its purpose is not to cause suffering. Only to encourage a healthy society.

    Did you have an overbearing father growing up?

    Is it wrong to pick a baby up and smash its head on the sidewalk? Yes.

    I bet you would agree with me. And, I bet 99.99999% of people would also agree. See where I'm going? Most people agree on what is right and wrong.
