Liberalism 101 Lesson 102:
It is a vulgar inequity to accuse Liberal/Progressive/Socialists of imbibing in various chemical substances just because we advocate their legalization.
It is not so much that our apparently insane policy ideas germinate in the fertile ground of a drug soaked mind (which indeed they do) but that they are indispensable for keeping the peasant class lulled into complacency.
Plus, when consumed by the already feeble minded, illicit drugs help to create even more useful idiots whom we can recruit to help implement our goals. (See lesson 43)
Liberalism 101 Lesson 43:
As liberals our work to create a Marxist utopia requires an allegiance with nefarious minions sent out to do our dirty work who are universally known as "useful idiots".
We apologize for that necessity but take heart; we all know the fate of the useful idiots once the work is complete.
