Sanity on the Subject of Drinking? I Can’t Believe It!

As I’ve noted here before, I’m a bit of a fanatic when it comes to neo-temperance. I believe that the anti-alcohol people like those who belong to MADD aren’t solving a problem. They ARE the problem. We Americans demonize alcohol and infantilize drinking. We have only ourselves to blame for “problems” like “underage drinking” and “binge drinking.”

So I’m astounded that editors at a mainstream magazine like Time had the balls to run this article. Astounded. Hey, maybe there’s hope! And in response to the question posed by the article’s author: Yes. You SHOULD drink with your kids. (For other posts on this topic, look under “rational drinking” in the categories box.)

  1. Indeed Maureen! Americans are hung-up on several things that fit this category. When you learn about these things in a healthy format, understanding the responsibility and advantages as well as repercussions, then we’d all be better off. Nudity, death, and having a drink (one) with lunch are other things that have a stigma that shouldn’t. Cheers!
