The New Prohibition
« on: January 26, 2013, 02:13:06 PM »
This is the era of the "new prohibition." Since Reagan's "War on Drugs," drinking has been increasingly discouraged by the powers-that-be, notably law enforcement and employers. What once was passed-off as "the folly of youth" and "college pranks" are now seen as serious infractions.

DWI fines and penalities have dramatically increased, resulting in very high penalties, fines, and longer prison terms.

In a highly-competitive culture such as America, maximum profits must be made, and efficiency is valued above all. Drinking reduces efficiency. Therefore, many employers now require blood tests, even for non-critical jobs. Employers are now working closely and covertly with "social reform" groups to do background and "grapevine gossip" checks on potential employees. Social media sites such as "facebook" and forums such as this one are routinely google-searched by employers as part of their pre-employment investigations. faceBook requires that you use your real name, and now YouTube is doing the same. Soon, discussion forums may follow suit.

Speed limits on freeways have increased (up to 85 MPH in certain areas) and cars are faster and more efficient. Therefore, drinking is now a serious offense, resulting in prison terms and high monetary fines.
