Arthur Kewling does convey the frustration I feel with these myopic 
conservatives in power (Issue# 694, March 15--22). Sadly when the 
need for change is greatest, our citizens resort to a cast in 
concrete ideology.

With the decline of voter interest, poor leadership options, and a 
long lag time for meaningful change to come about, I see only further decline.

The prohibition issue is the canary in the mineshaft.

It directly points out our failure to come to grips with the simplest 
of problems. Shows our form of government to be useless in dealing 
with things on a practical level.

The only viable option out of the mess of prohibition, is repeal. 
There is no other effective model in all of history, except the death 
penalty, anywhere.

We must choose a new form of government, which does not cater to the 
polarized gut feelings we are born with, but calls reason forth.

I believe we are in a genetic drift to lower intelligence in North America.

Do humans have a political gene?
