Interesting to see the hysteria over the Australian fourteen year old arrested in Bali on drug charges and now facing a three month jail sentence.
He was “cautioned” twice in Australia for drug connected crimes.
I do not present here any argument for or against adult drug use, but rather, my point is to review the Libertarian’s frequent claim that the war on drugs is not “winnable”.
My view on that is that it is only not winnable for the same reason that the west are in trouble on other war fronts. White anted from the inside, we lack the will and commitment to win.
The question should not be whether the Indonesian legal system is too harsh, but rather whether our system is too lenient.
