Incrementalism and Prohibition

In my last rant, I took John Gaps to task for his simple minded (and yet wrongheaded...) piece on the dangers of alcohol, young adults and parental responsibility. Radley Balko has written a paper that clobbers Mr. Gaps and his fellow travelers. Go read Back Door to Prohibition: The New War on Social Drinking and see why good intentions and government power are truly a nasty cocktail.
