Dealing drugs is the perfect curriculum for the children of our ruling elite
It's not productive, it's all based on personal connections, it's illegal, and if you're elite, you never get caught. But they don't call themselves "dealers." They call themselves "brokers." Perfect.
And a college curriculum is very hard to change. As long as keeping drugs illegal serves such a useful purpose -- training wheels for Our Betters, as it were -- it's hard to see how they'll ever get legalized. And keeping the niggers and rednecks locked up is a two-fer.
