If it's good, it's bad

by Capt. Fogg

And speaking of moronic marijuana policies, BBC News is eager to point out that the non-toxic alternative to the toxic chemotherapy used to fight breast cancer doesn't make you feel good. That's of course because it's a chemical found in Cannabis, which is also not toxic and does make you feel good.

Feeling good is obviously something suspicious to prohibition-minded, ban-obsessed, authoritarian morality mongers, or in other words the sort of people who populate governments. It's not hard to observe that the people who cackle about "if it feels good, do it" morality are really against anything that feels good unless it makes you feel good by making you feel bad.

The fact that it has no side effects, that it isn't toxic and that it works would never be enough to allow acceptance by the moral parasites who plague the practice of medicine if it helped a patient feel better or more optimistic or less nauseated and more able to take nourishment.

It's best to use something that can kill you and that makes you feel like the originally sinful, foul and damned creature that you are.

While we are here bonging our way to health and happiness (not necessarily in that order), consider this:

In Korea, a Boot Camp Cure for Web Obsession by Martin Fackler, NYT, Nov 18, 2007

MOKCHEON, South Korea — The compound — part boot camp, part rehab center — resembles programs around the world for troubled youths. Drill instructors drive young men through military-style obstacle courses, counselors lead group sessions, and there are even therapeutic workshops on pottery and drumming.

But these young people are not battling alcohol or drugs. Rather, they have severe cases of what many in this country believe is a new and potentially deadly addiction: cyberspace.

So is blogging the new addiction and are you, Libby and Captain, our drug dealer? Awe, come on, fess up.
