Riassunto: Taboos are a burden on society. By protecting irrational views they hinder progress towards greater happiness.
The government and the media use taboos to lie and mislead. It is not a conspiracy, but by pushing panic for votes and viewers they thwart Americans' pursuit of happiness. Taboos are not relics of primitive societies.
FACTS YOU WON'T HEAR ON THE NEWS: * There are gay animals and a gay gene has been discovered in insects. * It is highly likely an American president was gay. * Shielding kids from visual exposure to sex is linked to their later sexual aggression. Porn is not. * Celibacy is linked to health problems. * Prostitution can raise women's self-esteem. * Heterosexuals were never in much risk from AIDS. * Jesus Christ denounced lying not pre-marital sex, contraception, abortion, or drug use. * Adolescents who experiment with drugs are better adjusted than their peers. * Marijuana users are happier overall than non-users. * Wild animals enjoy getting high in nature. * America's gardens contain easily accessible morphine and hallucinogens. * Caffeine is as addictive as cocaine. Nicotine is more addictive than heroin. LSD addiction is impossible. * Legalized heroin would be less harmful than alcohol. * If you tried crack or heroin it is highly unlikely you would ever become addicted. * One of the 20th century's greatest scientific discoveries was drug induced, as was one of the 19th century's greatest paintings. * Brazil, Italy, Peru, Portugal, Russia, and Spain have already decriminalized personal possession for all drugs. * In America, people serve longer prison sentences for drug charges than for rape or manslaughter. * America's global drug war made 9/11 possible.
