Default Re: Phil Rudd fined

Nice job distilling Big Things down to its essence. You're very good at that and I agree with your assessment of Big Things vs. small things. It's not typically just about government control since, as you point out, gov is just a cog in the larger machine.

But I'm still not clear where big biz has much of a stake in this particular culture mini-war. My impression is that in this case it is solely politicians fretting over the next election cycle and the formidable block of social conservatives who would likely succeed in derailing the career of any who dared push for legalization.

Hopefully my adolescent comment was taken as the cheek it was meant to be. I doubt my habits would change much post-prohibition - unless repeal comes post-MikeM.
