RE: I fought the war (Maxed Out, Pique June 18)

What G.D. Maxwell fails to realize is that the War On Certain Drugs
was never meant to be won, it was meant to be continuous. It was
designed to reduce the civil rights and liberties of the general
population, accustom them to an ongoing and ever-growing police and
military presence in their daily lives, drain taxpayers' dollars, and
to keep lawyers rich, cops busy, and jails full. In that regard, it
has been a huge success. This could be why the Powers That Be refuse
to end it.
