Story: The Chemist's War
"Frustrated that people continued to consume so much alcohol even after it was banned, federal officials had decided to try a different kind of enforcement. They ordered the poisoning of industrial alcohols manufactured in the United States, products regularly stolen by bootleggers and resold as drinkable spirits. The idea was to scare people into giving up illicit drinking. Instead, by the time Prohibition ended in 1933, the federal poisoning program, by some estimates, had killed at least 10,000 people."
This is what happens when one suffers from "Group Think". The individual is not targeted for his individual drunkard behavior, the group was targeted, the inanimate object blamed. This is the typical convoluted logic the progressives use. Prohibition, though it was technically legal, had a total disregard for individual rights and was and is totally immoral. 10,000 poisoned and add in how many more individual ancillary deaths for a law that was eventually repealed? (Yeah that sound like it worked out just fine........< sarcasm>)
I guess it is OK to murder if you are the government and frustrated and it is for the "Greater Good".
