How we are complicit in the Mexican cartels

By Philip Martin

I don't usually write about books I haven't finished, but I get the feeling that I'll be reading Don Winslow's new novel The Cartel for a long time. It's more than 600 pages and I'm reading it carefully and slowly, for a few minutes every night.

Now just how would legal drugs impact Americans' productivity? This is a capitalist nation, built upon the idea that one person gets others to work for him, and he makes a profit off their labor. But what if folks quit working so hard, due to drug use? Might that cut into the profits of our capitalist class? Don't capitalists more or less run this country, and this world? So now it should be obvious why drugs will not become legal anytime soon. Capitalism has its winners and losers. The winners live lives of fabulous luxury and pleasure. The losers, well, not so much.
