war on drugs - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
We cry for the child of the streets, turned to chemicals for the feelings they should have had from real hugs, real love, real nurture. We cry for those trapped in the cycle from production to distribution, either there because they need the money to survive or have become addicted to power and adrenaline. We cry for the officers caught in the charade that is its law enforcement, just enough done to persuade the public that the bought politicians are actually fighting what has become so very lucrative for the corrupt. And the answers to this war on drugs will never be guns or violence, but to provide the hugs and nurture our children need so they never seek this chemical version of what they imagine real love feels like. This is why all of our faiths and our secular humanitarians speak of love as our answer, because it is.
If you weren't as shit-for-brains as the scum-bag dealers, this would be over by now. Could ya stop mass producing trauma children, for just one second, maybe? Could ya? Because then there would be no customers. What would an end to child poverty cost, dare we ask for a start of real child care for all, one in which kids are really loved and nurtured... because not only would it come at a fraction of the price, it would lower health care costs, improve education outcomes and increase law and order... war on drugs? Let's have a war on shitty childhoods and kids being exploited... because once they have a trauma brain they are vulnerable to becoming a customer. Do politicians need to actually be clever or will any suit-monkey do?
And if you want a solution better than that one... one to stop all the human trafficking and the insipid corruption of everything that's good... get rid of the financial system. What is the going rate of a child on the dark web these days? Good people do what they do because it's the right thing to do, they do it for love, give 'em food, a house, the basics and they'll work all the harder just for the chance to fix this world; figure that system out and we'll have a utopia.
