10 Commandants

I have always been opposed to the 10 Commandants being place on any Government building or any building that receives support from The State. Maybe I should relent on this position and point out there is no Commandant that says, “Thou shall not have any psychoactive drugs in your private possession, on your person, or in your body.” It ain’t there.

Drug prohibition is a beast — a beast that has tentacles
many years old. The beast was created by a fearful society
that believed the beast could do what only God can do. As
the tentacles of the beast grew, they began to harm the ones
it professed to help. A fearful society sees the harm as a
sore continuing to grow. The blind, fearful society demands
the beast be fed more and more. The beast’s tentacles now
are so large and widespread it feeds the society’s fears;
thus, society demands the beast be given more substance. The
tentacles are cutting off the principles by which our
society has grown and flourished. When the principles are
lost, how much longer can our society last?
