So I'm having a discussion on the affects on modern prohibition on society. He compared it to the government controlling the masses with imprisonment aka slavery. Wth does this even mean, I'm completely lost & don't want to sound like an idiot when I respond. I need some help ladies

Is it for a class or just general conversation?
It could be like Slavery only in the sense that the government would be telling you can't legally get wasted on the weekend.



My opinion, people will find a way to make and sell their own alcohol anyway. Especially with books and the Internet, people with a will will find a way. Just the same as people did when prohibition was effect decades ago.

It's just general conversation. I don't see how it's being compared to slavery ??? I also said that the government would be losing out on $$ & that all the brewery & liquor store workers would be out of work, making more people apply for unemployment & government assistance. I honestly don't see it ever going into affect

It's nowhere near slavery, honestly. That is a serious exaggeration! It won't happen. Struggling enough as it is financially in this country. I'm very sure people won't repeat THAT history! Bootleggers baby!
