Heroin Is So Passe


(And no, I can’t figure out how to put an accent mark on that.) The great Radley Balko has an article on all the comparisons people have made between whatever they dislike and heroin. It doesn’t quite establish which if any of these comparisons are inaccurate. I would think that from the perspective of at least some libertarians, all of them are sound and the truth is that heroin isn’t all that bad. Many people will find the comparison he cites by Jeffrey Satinover between heroin and pornography nutty. I find it rather interesting.
