Gavin McInnes remembers Amy Winehouse.
Heroin addiction isn’t a disease, as Russell Brand so despondently put it. It’s an indulgence—like obesity, but in reverse.
Drug addicts don’t need kid gloves. They need an iron fist. I know this because I’ve watched a dozen heroin addicts die over the years, and the ones who survived always say the same thing: “I can’t believe you didn’t just punch me in the face.”
But that’s the modern world for you — overindulgence is reinvented as ‘disease’, and abnormality is the new ‘normal’.
