Anyone watch hard bastard? I'm Anglo him and Styx are the only way I keep up with colonial happenings
what are everyones opinions on the 8values test. Personally, I think some of the questions are flawed.
this is what I got btw
Been a while since I've done it, but one of these was my most recent (can't remember which)
An awfully strong belief in "tradition". It seems a lot of the tradition questions lay its eggs in the religious basket, which I guess is an acceptable way of portraying it, but not quite perfect.
none of these things are perfect
True. But it's an acceptable test nonetheless to get a general idea.
I pretty much answered no to all the religious questions which gave me that. Lol.
i got liberal
I think this test should be more nuanced, for example, I am in favor of marijuana legalization, but for other drugs, such as meth, I view these differently.
they should be viewed individually
marijuana is a naturally growing substance, meth requires manufacturing.
But if this is the requrement tahn Morphine also should be legal
I think it should still be regulated, like alcohol.
So that isn't a problem with morphine because it is already regulated
in what way
should it be avalible for rec use?
and regulated there
yes, but similar laws to alcohol, especially with regards to things like driving.
that is fair
but i think it should apply to all drugs
for the sake of removing it as funding for cartel/gang activity
I can see your point there as well.
as long as these things are illegal they will fund even worse activities like human trafficking
I guess a good way to go about it would be to have much stricter regulations on things like meth and heroine because those can actually kill you from an overdose, while marijuana cannot because of the amount you would have to smoke to die is impossible to smoke in the amount of time needed.
If your method of conducting whether it should be legal or not is based off arbitariness then that's not really a good position to hold.
but if the meth and heroine are regulated they will be less likely to kill you,
Hash and opium are naturally grown.
I'm not against weed liberation
you know how much each dose it
Many things are manufactured that is good for you.
So both sides of that coin is just... Bad.
