Portugal’s drug policy is AMAZING. I say this as a retired cop from California. I worked the front lines of the drug war and we will never win. I live in Portugal now and the drug laws changed my opinion. Everyone should look at thier policy and how much of a success it is.
I’ve never seen a obvious drug addict here and I live 20 mins from Lisbon and it’s been 3 years. In the US I would see one every day
The two hour lunch breaks that some places have here only cater to the whims of those employers who want such thing for themselves. I’d rather eat a bit more quickly if that means going home earlier in the evening and not having to commute in the middle of the day just to go home, eat and go back to work again (no oftentimes they won’t let you stay there).
As a left-leaning centrist, I’ve grown to hate Michael Moore. He’s occasionally entertaining, but mostly he’s a cherry-picking provocateur, and laughs all the way to the bank while doing it. He just goes around saying “Look how great it is over here!” almost always disregarding that those countries have made the collective choice to prioritize those things *and the money to make them happen, and the sacrifices that go with it.* He routinely commits the fallacy of suggesting these things can get done with the flick of a pen. He’s one of the main drivers of liberal thinking becoming completely detached and dishonest about sound fiscal policy.
Moore always struck me as a guy who caught lightning in a bottle once, and has just kept trying to no success since.
Michael Moore is so full of shit lol
