Rebels with a Cause! The Real history of Moonshine and Pot in Appalachia.

My documentary on the history of the Appalachia folk and their Scottish and Irish roots lead to their anti authority spirit. How some simple hill folk from the southern mountains have been living free for over 200 years without the letting the government tell them how to live. We also examine the defiant history of Moonshine bootleggers and the legendary Marijuana Growers of the hills.

Many laws have become lax. This is done by those in authority so that they, themselves, can break the law without the danger of strong punishment if they are caught.

Seems to me that there is a lot of evidence that those who use alcohol or drugs often overdo it, and destroy property not their own, and harm or kill people. If users only damaged their own property, or harmed only themselves, there wouldn't be much problem.

To protect private property rights in America, we need to do 2 things:
1. Get rid of all laws that hinder anybody from doing anything he wants on his own private property - ANYTHING;
2. If he crosses the line off his own property, no matter who he is - government official or not - let the punishment match the crime... eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, property for property, life for life.

Of course, the punishment can't be made to match the crime as the law stands now, because there are too many loopholes in the law for right and effective punishment to be handed down. Until the law is changed back to what it should be, we will all be in danger of losing private property rights. And this will happen more and more as more and more watered-down laws are passed, laws that hinder judgments and punishments in favor of those who are damaged by someone else.
