It has nothing to do with libertarianism

It's mostly two factions I've identified- Scientologists and the "natural" health crowd. They have intentions that run far deeper than truth seeking. They use every tragedy to demonize psychotropics and mainstream medicine.

Blaming inanimate things like drugs and guns on complex human behavior is a traditionally liberal cause. They are trying to find simple solutions and scapegoats for extremely complicated problems.

It has gotten to the point where people are so convinced that drugs cause murder that they won't even listen to any counter arguments. I can't tell you how many times I've been accused for being a "drug rep" or "government shill" on the DP. My position has nothing to do with defending government or big Pharma. I'm trying to defend science and reality.
