Would This Make You Stop Drinking or Start Here's a group of obviously disgruntled women. Between 1830 and 1840, most temperance organizations began to argue that the only way to prevent drunkenness was to eliminate the consumption of alcohol. The Temperance Society became the Abstinence Society. The Independent Order of Good Templars, the Sons of Temperance, the Templars of Honor and Temperance, the Anti-Saloon League, the National Prohibition Party and other groups were formed and grew rapidly. With the passage of time, "The temperance societies became more and more extreme in the measures they championed. "He who does not love wine, wife, and song will be a fool his whole life long" a vigorous 1873 assertion of cultural values of German-American immigrantsWhile it began by advocating the temperate or moderate use of alcohol, the movement now insisted that no one should be permitted to drink any alcohol in any quantity. It did so with religious fervor and increasing convictions.

I'm concerned with the new prohibition of drugs that were legal till the 1930's.It's created nearly 1 million gangsters (gangstas) in all 50 states.Murder,crime etc...Moreso then anytime in our history!Because of the mind boggling profits you obtain from selling unlawful ,illegal products.It ain't me babe That's how I made it to 50 and not a dead, rich 18 year old.See the movie American Gangster with Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe NON-FICTION it is very accurate.I lived in that area at that time.Now it's minors who play video games that will murder you without reason! Only to get initiated into a gang.PEACE!
