Anonymous Conservative -- Oregon To Decriminalize Cocaine, Heroin, And Meth
'The problem rabbits have is they want utopia – where they can do anything and there is never any consequence. The problem in reality is, you can legislate that people can do anything, but in the real world, that will come with consequences that rabbits can’t deal with. If you eliminated welfare, legalized concealed carry with stand your ground, outlawed Narcan revival, and punished theft and robbery aggressively, this might work. Crime might even go down ultimately as all the rabbits removed themselves from society and the long form DRD4 were culled out of the population. -- But the rabbits can’t have any of those consequences, so instead Oregon has just made themselves the ideal destination for junkies. I would expect the flood to quickly overwhelm their social safety net and criminal justice systems, as junkie crimes designed to feed addictions take off, and the rabbits spend whatever they have to, to protect the junkies from any negative consequences. -- For the world to work in even a semi-functional way, you either need total freedom or total tyranny, and even then tyranny will be unsustainable in the long term 100% of the time. -- What is interesting is the precedent the left is setting all over. If there is any federal dictate or law they don’t like, they just declare their local government immune, or even outlaw federal enforcement, and then continue on. They are doing that because their rabbit brains feel they have no choice. To them it is that, or K-selection. -- When K-selection hits and the choice is break free or have the feds take your wealth and give it to the cities while your locals starve and die, I expect the K’s will do the exact same thing. It is nice the rabbits will have already set the precedent.'

Once the Cathedral of Kensington, now a heroin shooting gallery
It made sense to Father William Murphy. For months, he and Father Joseph Devlin and Sister Ann Raymond had been feeding the young people who got high on the lawn of McPherson Square library. But then the police drove the crowds away. The addicted people had to have gone somewhere, he thought.

So Father Murphy and Sister Raymond walked the few blocks to the church that long was the jewel of the neighborhood, until it wasn’t. They stepped through a window, glass crunching underneath their feet.

In the half-light, they could make out thin forms. Some shot heroin in the pews, some laid half-naked on mattresses. Others stumbled past in their stupor, not noticing the priest and nun in their presence.

Father Murphy did all he could think to do. He began to bless them.

The scientific link between boredom and creativity — Quartz
As an only child who grew up before the rise of the Internet, boredom was my constant companion. Summers were an endless stretch of riding my bike around town, reading, and staring up into the sky, imagining stories that I later wrote into my tattered journals. This tendency toward unscheduled downtime carried over into adulthood,...
