LIBERAL PROHIBITIONISM: Two Timely Essays

Two timely essays for anyone who,  like myself,  ponders the gaping contradictions to be found within a liberal "prohibitionist"  movement:  in the war on drugs,  drinking,  and for some,  sexual activity;  and for those who reflect on the implications of extending the powers of law enforcenment,  family courts, and social workers,  by extension of this prohibitionistic tendency.   A police state we are not,  but something needs to change. . .
