Yes, I found myself in the people’s republic of San Francisco where if it’s not on the table, it’s off the wall, and then it’s on the table. San Francisco is seriously considering formalizing “shooting galleries” for heroin addicts. Now a couple of things come to mind. First, isn’t heroin illegal? Second, isn’t heroin illegal? Never mind that; the city fathers want to curry favor with addled drug addicts. Who knows, they might get a couple of votes, and earning votes is critical.
What about the morality of this idea? Well, when it comes to morality in San Francisco (we won’t talk about most of the rest of America), they have a very special kind. It’s called Machiavellian pragmatism. Not familiar with that term? Niccolo Machiavelli was a medieval adviser to princes, Popes, and kings along with the DeMedici family. For more info, read the book The Prince which details his life. Basically, his philosophy amounted to the ends justify the means. Put more bluntly; do whatever it takes no matter who it hurts or what it costs and with no regard to right or wrong.
Now the warm fuzzy thinking of the moronic politicos of San Francisco does have a moral twist. They are going to include counselors in the government run horrific heroin havens. That makes it all o.k. – right?
Pensamiento Peligroso writes the truth as he sees it, and if it upsets you, then it makes you think!
