I know nothing about this, and I’m painfully aware that I might be furthering some sort of hoax, a scam, or (horror of horrors) stupidity, but I feel compelled to at least mention it:”Pro-Life Breakthrough.” I offer the link “as is.”
England’s foray into 24-hour drinking establishments apparently isn’t going well. The law, which allows specially-licensed businesses to sell alcohol around the clock, has been in effect for about two years, and some say there has been an increase in binge drinking and alcohol-related problems. I hate the phrase “alcohol-related,” because it’s broad enough to capture almost anything that occurs when you have a beer in your hand, and I hear the “experts” use it that broadly, too (“frequent urination!”). Anyway, it’s believable that there has been a spike in alcohol-related problems. Once a taboo is removed, there’s a wild period, but then things should settle down. Eric Schlosser makes the same point in his muckraking plea for the legalization of drugs, Reefer Madness. Although I disagree with many angles in his book, I suspect he’s right on that score.
