In Theroux’s Philadelphia episode we get a chilling insight into the social mess that has been driven by the capitalist economic system, prohibitionist drug stance, gun culture and irresponsible stance on policing communities.
Let this be a lesson to us all: Never allow guns to be freely bought or sold in our countries. Never criminalise an adult individual for the right to take a natural substance (drug) if he/she chooses – regulate the supply through legislation. Never create a war on society from criminalising communities – seek the answer through education on the reasons for poverty and exploitation of the masses. Don’t recruit fascist thugs to become law enforcers!
