We use violence to suppress inconvenient situations we can not understand for lack of intellectual and emotional maturity.
There are very important reasons for humans we use physical violence, brutal and merciless.
- Can be understood and applied by people of very low levels of education;
- The fear (caused by violence) is a highly effective feeling, paralyzing deterrent, which is beyond the control of the sufferer;
- Requires low income (thus is accessible to a majority of people).
The policies that apply universally to control and discourage the consumption of psycho-active drugs (cocaine, marijuana, amphetamines), are fundamentally violent.
A technique that usually works very well for studying social phenomena is to leave out the value judgments (good, bad, evil, ideal, positive) posturing humble enough to recognize that the fact at issue is working perfectly well (because to remain must be viable harmonic coherent healthy), although we can not understand yet.
I say this in another way:
Value judgments are arrogant reactions subject us, bind us, imprison us.
Our mind can hardly operate intelligently when confused "what is" with what "should be".
Something happens to the drug phenomenon is that we face with a mind clouded by:
- The media scandal referred to the corruption of the actors, to a kind of mystical struggle between " good and evil";
- The envy we feel for those who enjoy using and to those who enrich unscrupulously;
- The conviction that violence (repression) brutal, blind, devastating, really effective, radical, infallible.
Both the drug and in our personal economy, violence is a solution as cheap as inefficient.
All cash is to develop (encourage, sponsor) individual responsibility.
Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): La violencia es barata pero no rinde.
