A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on alcohol, drugs, greed, ignorance, love, people, power, society, stupidity, and trouble

Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs; we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed, and love of power.
