By the way, have you been concerned? Outraged? What if I told you you're a big fucking hypocrite? Well maybe you're not, let's find out. Question: Do you have a credit card that actually uses bank credit (not prepaid or direct debit)? If the answer is yes then congratulations; you personally help fuel the drug trade.
If you weren't aware, you're about to be: the credit that credit cards utilize doesn't just appear magically out of thin air, it's funded by the drug trade. Haven't you ever wondered why big banks launder drugs?

A large portion of the mess we're in is due to the fact that our entire society is run on drugs! If it's not oil, it's drugs! Rob Ford's drug usage is just a drop in the bucket.
Are you outraged because it's outrageous, or to comfort a guilty conscience? Let me ask you, are you willing to put your own lifestyle behind your outrage? Will you be cutting up your credit card? I personally refuse to have one and you know what? Sure I can't go on vacations whenever or buy that new toy on a whim but I get by. I live, and I'm happy living knowing that I'm living in the best possible way towards my fellow man. I am so fucking sick of this hypocritical society, the people at the top may implement our destruction but we're all playing our part, too. We're all to blame.
