Here's one way to deal with cognitive dissonance.

70 million Americans taking mind-altering drugs
David Kupelian tells untold story of nation's rapidly escalating drug dependence

The heroin-overdose death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has caused the media to focus, however fleetingly, on America’s drug problem.

News accounts of the Oscar-winner’s tragic demise typically reference the startling increase in heroin-related deaths in the last four to five years. The problem, reporters explain, is the vast number of Americans addicted to prescription pain meds like OxyContin, many of whom discover heroin to be both cheaper and easier to obtain than the prescription opioid drugs to which they initially became addicted.

That’s accurate as far as it goes. But by following the trail further, we arrive at a place far more shocking and consequential. We discover that not only has the traditional distinction between illegal “street drugs” and legal “therapeutic prescription drugs” become so blurred as to be almost nonexistent, but between America’s twin drug epidemics – one illegal, the other legal – well over 70 million Americans are using mind-altering drugs. And that number doesn’t include abusers of alcohol, which adds an additional 60 million Americans. So we’re really talking about 130 million strung-out Americans. How is this possible?

For some reason, as I ponder this question, the infamous words of counterculture icon Timothy Leary are reverberating in my head: "Turn on, tune in, drop out"

We've been living in a state of substance-induced nirvana to escape from reality for so long, it's no wonder we've been overrun by inferior subspecies like the barbarians and the communists.

America's enemies have us right where they want us.

So high that we don't know whether to scratch our watches or wind our asses.
