The example under discussion is a lung transplant patient. Besides, chronic opiate use is not damaging to the liver as long as the opiates are pharmaceutical grade and, if injected, sterile technique is used..

Daily use of opiates is not harmful to the general health. The horror stories most people are familiar with involve unsterile injection of street concoctions, anything from bathtub fentanyl to baby powder.

Lifelong oral users (and even users who inject using sterile technique) of pharmaceutical grade opiates can and do live long productive lives.

This is malpractice. Why does a croaker base his practice of medicine on a moral judgment? And we're not talking a moral judgment like the abortion question, either.

The decision to deny an addict a transplant is a moral judgement, not a medical one.

Most people's rational judgment on this issue is clouded by the highly offensive public abuse of these drugs by exhibitionists, narcissists, people generally so fucked up that their use of junk in public is to them a sort of obscene performance intended to broadcast their own personal degradation. Such people belong in jail as public nuisances and not offered the conditional "rehab or jail" option, which just wastes everybody's time and taxpayer $ in an absurd revolving-door setup that coddles the worst sort of grifters, liars, and leeches, addicts and "counselors" alike

Legalized OTC sales of narcotics to 21+ would at least allow us to isolate and punish the above-mentioned criminally antisocial assholes.

SocJus has become the squid ink of politicians. Something hopelessly corrupt or damaging to the nation? Queer it up and put trannies center stage, or "put a nigger behind the trigger" so anyone criticizing the diseased/corrupt bit of the state can be tarred as a "bigot."

Why deny someone a lung transplant merely because he's an addict? It is an idiotic moral judgment that is totally irrelevant.

If someone damaged an organ by shooting up contaminated street drugs, that's one thing.

But merely being an opiate addict is NOT an ethical reason to deny treatment.

Denying medical care,especially a lung transplant, to an opiate addict is both cruelly unethical and idiotic. What's the problem? "He will, more than non-users, enjoy the pain medication we give routinely after surgery and other painful procedures"? "We will need to give him stronger than normal doses of opiates because he's an addict"?

Go to law to enforce the proper ethical medical treatment of addicts, sure, but don't continue the charade that opiate addiction is a "disability." It's the same authoritarian horseshit that leads to denying junkies proper medical treatment in the first place.

An addict becomes an addict voluntarily. Only someone laid up in the hospital for months being administered opiates for pain qualifies as an unwilling addict, and such habits can be kicked in a week with comparatively little discomfort.

Blame the absolutely moronic idea foisted on us by the usual suspects that somehow the junkie is an unwitting victim.

Thomas Szasz is right!

Teaching abstinence is oppression! The state must create conditions in which I can fuck anything I desire. If I get the Pox, my shepherds must find a cure because I ain't gonna stop sticking my diseased member in anything that stands still long enough.

Right--persecuted minorities and their champions in English departments, college/state bureaucracies, and newsrooms everywhere. Fuck these people. Barbarians and philistines, the lot of 'em.

Keats is an important Romantic poet . . . kinda precious but steeped in a fascinating 19th-century English nature worship with most of the others of that era. Hardy is great--"Drummer Hodge" is a Boer War classic I revere from my childhood and they'll probably toss his novels, too. Owen and Sassoon are important if we want to remember WWI and the horrific impact it had, annihilating an entire generation of Englishmen and exposing the psychological effects of the English class system. Can't have Englishmen understanding their past, no, everything must be burned and history reset to begin in 2022.

This latest purge of canonical Western poets is yet more Soviet-style scrubbing of history to focus on the utterly unimportant, uninteresting self-absorbed trash written by ham-fisted shitheads with the correct skin color and sex organs.

Is there anything the left will not destroy? Douglas Murray is right.

I

They throw in Drummer Hodge, to rest Uncoffined—just as found: His landmark is a kopje-crest That breaks the veldt around; And foreign constellations west Each night above his mound.

II

Young Hodge the Drummer never knew— Fresh from his Wessex home— The meaning of the broad Karoo, The Bush, the dusty loam, And why uprose to nightly view Strange stars amid the gloam.

III

Yet portion of that unknown plain Will Hodge for ever be; His homely Northern breast and brain Grow up a Southern tree, And strange-eyed constellations reign His stars eternally.

Back in the late '50s/early '60s random spooks might have found their Jello dosed with a few hundred micrograms of LSD. It was a macho contest to see who could handle it.

"Goddamn it! This is the third time I've been dosed in the cafeteria this month!"

We're fucking doomed. We have literal children working for the CIA. More absolutely nightmarish stupidity issuing from American universities infiltrating all of our institutions, filling them with narcissistic, entitled yuppie assholes.

As long as all religious schools receive sate funding equally it can't be interpreted as "establishment of religion." That said, the establishment clause has been meaningless ever since the Native American Church became the only religious establishment allowed to legally use psychedelic drugs.

Yeah, well, I wouldn't go that far. At least I like to think I wouldn't. Maybe a few streetfights at "Pride" bacchanals or some mean editorials in the corporate press.

I wish I could ignore them but they're making too much bad noise everywhere because the establishment is shoving them forward as paragons of the oppressed.

I'd like to see at least some oppression of these agitators, some oppression with some teeth.

Petulant retarded children. No . . . that's an insult to children.

In ancient Rome they would tie people like this up in sacks with live wildcats and throw them in the Tiber.

we're not able to get to an equitable climate solution if we don't address the inequities in our society.

How about FUCK YOU!?!?!

What a shameless extortionist. Using a gigantic lie to advance one of the stupidest claims ever to issue from a clown's ass.

How about you repair your broken capacity for reason before taking over EPA, you waterhead? Oh, that's impossible you say because you're a congenital retard?

Tut tut . . . there's a nice DC corner office waiting for your ass to occupy a chair until you die, and you won't have to do anything except issue more bad gas like this whenever your masters yank your chain to wake you up.

Realistically, we'll probably never see a purge of homosexuals from the US, as much as that might quiet things down a bit and help preserve the nuclear family.

Without watching the clip, which I will do in a few minutes here, I suspect that the "forgiveness" is part of some idiotic "restorative justice" program. "Restorative Justice" attempts to reconcile criminals and their victims by putting them in the same room with a middleman who urges the victims to forgive and forget while urging the convicts to apologize.

I'd be interested to hear any opinions on this concept.

In 1975, I took an elective as a HS Sophomore called "Introduction to Business" where we were taught these things (not about tax forms, though). The guy even taught us how to balance a checkbook.

Is such instruction now obsolete?
