The Ecstasy of War

• Lew Rockwell blog
A news report informs us that the federal government has found the drug "ecstasy" helpful to soldiers returning from the Middle East suffering from post-traumatic stress. No mention was made of how this drug might have helped other users deal with the stresses generated by life in a highly-structured, conflict-ridden society. Nor was any attention directed to the present conditions of the developers and street suppliers of this drug, many of whom may now be serving lengthy terms in penitentiaries. It is enough to know that Big-Pharma — with the blessing and probable patent protection of the state — will be able to generate massive profits from the sale of this erstwhile illegal substance to the soldiers drawn into (and their lives destroyed by)  the insanity of the war system.
