    PROHIBITION

    Did you watch part one? I found it interesting & learned a few things.

    Thoughts?

    I am curious how many people here would have obeyed and abstained from alcohol.

    As ever, Ken Burns made a great series.

    I enjoyed part I and am looking forward to the rest. I think the main thing I came away with is that politicians still pander to keep their jobs. And that banning something makes it more dear.

    Dang, missed it! Sounds like a great watch for those who are students of history and politics.

    I always cry when i see them taking the pick axes to the barrels and barrels of booze. Then the slow shot of it flowing into the drain :(. Those were ironically dark times for enlightened people.

    Stupid laws make criminals of good people, laws should be for the good of all, not the good of the group with the biggest mouths or deepest pockets!

    How did that song go? buy a hundred pounds of yeast and some copper line - everyone knew that he made moonshine...
    Yeah If I remember correctly my grandfather and all his buddies got an RX from the VA doc for medicinal alcohol from the pharmacy - back then they didn't have computers to track your usage so they would take the RX to several pharmacies if they were gong to have a party.
