Society's Addictions

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte sounds like a guy way out of control in his ravings against drug dealers and users, 3,000 of whom have been killed in the Philippines since he took office on June 30. To quote ,''Hitler massacred 3 million Jews.....there is 3 million drug addicts; there are. I'd be happy to slaughter them''.

It is disgusting, inexcusable, but not very surprising that a man in a position of power would make such an inhumane comment. 

Though one can understand Duterte's revulsion of drug addiction it would be better for all concerned if he worked for the establishment of a society where no one would feel a need to take drugs.
