How Winston Churchill Got Around Prohibition When He Visited the U.S.

Laws are for the little people.

  1. In this case laws are for "big" people, too. Churchill needed a "prescription" for "medicine" from an MD, just as we non-MD's do.
    The prescription laws give doctors enormous power over us and for the most part I think doctors want it and feel it's necessary. After all we're
    just babes in the woods.

    Prescription laws are another form of mandated paternalism that is little discussed by libertarians, and I think are antecedents to the current war on drugs.
