Stuff from a TV preacher / US teens doped up
Do you like stuff from TV preachers ? I knew a site that had a lot of it, but it seems to be gone. However, I did find this flickr photoset that has a bunch of stuff from Robert Tilton. I love it !
In the "moral righteousness of atheism" category : UN Report: Teens In US More Likely To Use Drugs Than Teens In Europe. However the bad news don't fall only on the US this time :
Highlights from the conference included a report comparing use of alcohol and other drugs by youth in Europe with use by youth in the US. The New York Times reported on February 21, 2001 ("Study Finds Teenage Drug Use Higher In US Than In Europe") that "Forty- one percent of 10th graders in the United States had tried marijuana, compared with 17 percent of those in Europe. And 23 percent of the students in the United States had used other illicit drugs, compared with 6 percent of the Europeans."
The WHO also reported that alcohol is the number one killer of young men in Europe, according to new data from their Global Burden of Disease 2000 Study. The release notes that "One in four deaths of European men in the group aged 15-29 years is related to alcohol. In parts of eastern Europe, the figure is as high as one in three."
In Europe, the forms of drug used as a sedative are used three times as often as in the US. But in the US, the forms of benzodiazepine used to treat anxiety and obesity disorders are used 10 times more often than in Europe.
As I've always said, I don't give a damn if you want to take drugs or not - alcohol, tobacco, heroin, whatever. But I can still say that taking drugs in excess is a negative social indicator. It means something about the amorality and helplessness in a society. American teens trapped in fundamentalism, and Eastern European teens trapped in statism, both express their despair in different drugs, that's all. The only solution to both is INDIVIDUALISM !
