THE PROBABLE IMPACT OF LEGALIZING DRUGS IN A HEDONISTIC SOCIETY!!!

There is some scientific evidence to suggest that if your life is going along relatively smoothly with physical health, a moral outlook, a useful education, a few good friends, good social interaction, a good paying job, financial responsibility, a happy marriage, and generally a feeling that you are contributing to society in some meaningful way that the probability that you will need or do drugs is minimal. Basically if you are moral, eat healthy, have drug free good friends, and are gainfully employed then you will seldom have a serious drug habit.

But seriously ask yourself whether society or any social program can offer equal opportunity to achieve such desirable happiness or circumstances once you have fallen through the cracks and become a habitual drug user? To gain desirable circumstances requires time, effort, sacrifice, achievement, optimization of ability, money, a moral family, and a useful educational background. Just do what feels good or follow your passion will definitely not work under most circumstances. Life is not fair for most and those are the humans more prone to drug use.

On the other hand if you are in bad physical health, don’t have a moral family, have dysfunctional friends who gamble, are promiscuous, and are financially unstable then you are in danger. If you are bad at social interaction, are badly educated, depressed, have a lousy job or no job at all, are unhappily married or not married at all, and feel that you are contributing nothing to society then drugs can be a very tempting escape mechanism to try and feel good for a change.

Increasingly western society is being filled with dysfunctional individuals isolated from wholesome human contact who do drugs to try and escape their desperate isolated or confusing lives. Others socialize with dysfunctional hedonistic friends who are lousy role models to imitate. When teenage and adult peer pressure is hedonistic then it is just a question of time before you crash and burn and potentially ruin your life and whatever future you still have ahead of you.

A society filled with rehab centers is not a very stable society and the more drugs that are legalized the greater will be the percentage of humans using them on a regular basis which many now still call an addiction problem. The opiod crisis is just the tip of the legal and illegal iceberg and legalizing all drugs as in Portugal will unfortunately eventually result in a large percentage of the largely hedonistic drug taking population being bad contributing members to society.

Maybe eventually an unhappy dysfunctional human workforce will largely be replaced with dependable, trustworthy, competent robots. What may then happen is that most of the population will be strung out on mind altering drugs most of the time and on government welfare. There is an old saying which still applies in modern times even though you don’t have to believe in devils. “Idle minds and hands are the devil’s workshop”. Simply put, if you have nothing useful to do in life then you will probably get yourself into trouble personally and socially.

If drugs are legalized then there will be more children, students, nannies, teachers,  vocational and professional workers in responsible positions strung out on drugs and making the workforce more dangerous and inefficient than it already is. Can any nation with legalized drugs survive and be powerful, respected, and morally functional in other than a third world status? I highly doubt that this is possible.

I hope the crisis never becomes so acute that drug pushers or dealers will have to be executed but that may be the only sane alternative to continuing to do nothing constructive and gradually letting the nation slide into a mind altering drug haze both legal and illegal.

If there is a moral to be gleaned from history it is- “don’t become a hedonistic individual and participate in a hedonistic society”. Hedonistic individuals and societies don’t last long.

THE TRUTH ABOUT HEDONISM***

hedonism_43

Hedonism: n. pursuing excessive pleasure

If you have devoted most of your life to gluttony, promiscuity, sexual pleasure, drugs, gambling, and alcohol then you can be considered to be a hedonist or someone who is out for extreme pleasure to the exclusion of most other important things in life.

The later Roman emperors were very hedonistic and renowned for their excessive indulgences in the pursuit of pleasure. Believe it or not they would forcefully vomit after a delicious meal only to delight in the pleasures of eating again a second and sometimes a third time! That is gluttony taken to the ultimate extreme.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF LIFE AND WHAT SHOULD YOUR PURPOSE BE???

purpose

The purpose of life has always been to survive and reproduce the next generation. Humans have succeeded so well at this that the polluted world is overpopulated with human protoplasm which is devastating the biodiversity of the food supply and destroying biodiverse wilderness threatening the very survival of healthy civilization.

Nothing is more certain than change and if you are making and achieving small short duration new goals in life and if you have made long duration goals subject to change as necessary then you have purpose or more accurately purposes in life. Even if you never succeed at reproducing which is no longer a necessity but should be considered a luxury, you can have purpose(s) in life.

Caught in a world of impulsive dysfunctional living, bad habits, and starting to feel depressed? If your best friends are just as impulsively dysfunctional then end the bad friendships, improve yourself gradually, and eventually find new and better friends.

Make some new good short duration goals and achieve them thus displacing more and more of your dysfunctional living and bad habits. You may feel discouraged at first because bad living is habit forming and gives you some pleasure. You may not know what a good short duration new goal is but try to connect with new useful skills, new useful knowledge, and new functional friend role models who seem to be living a more purposeful good life with plans for the future. Succeeding at achieving new short duration good goals will give you the confidence to make more of them and you will experience real improvement in your life.

Yes, you can also dedicate yourself to a life of hedonistic indulgences and addictive vices one after the other with indiscriminate use of mind altering drugs. Burn with the intensity of fireworks in your life and it will be just as short lived an experience in your life. Live for today and don’t give a damn about tomorrow will frequently result in a worse tomorrow or even worse -no tomorrow!!!

Good unbiased advice or free useful knowledge is hard to find these days in a fast changing technological century which is fast changing many old rules. You can start by investing your time and energy searching and reading articles in this website which will give you plenty of wise advice on what good habits, good goals, and good lifestyles are.

You are being lied to, deceived, and brainwashed by society and friends. Search for the truth and find some and you will gradually rid yourself of the comforting lies which keep your life functioning badly in a purple haze of impulsive stupidity.

If you are not convinced that I have most of the answers then surf the web and ask your questions using search engines such as Google and Bing. I can only help you to set new useful goals in your life but actually setting them and trying to achieve them is your responsibility and yours only!!!!!!

If you are not happy and feel purposeless then start making some good conscious changes in your life by setting some new realistic good goals and actually achieving them with self-control and determination. Live long and prosper!
