Hello Alan,

I believe this is a well known fact that was so well illustrated and proven by the US experience during the prohibition years, when not only that criminal gangs flourished, but even alcohol consumption increased.

Yet, it appers that our law makers are so idiotic they either don't know, or they ignore this.

That's why I believe that our societies are slowly but steadily turning into Kafkian idiocracies.

PS: I wish I share your optimism illustrated by your pendulum example...
