>>455181>Why does something that could be preventable mean that we must prevent it?
We prevent airplane crashes by heeding what causes them to crash. We prevent cargo ships from sinking by heeding what causes them to sink. Certainly you aren't suggesting that the working class is not as important.
>we wont even be using vehicles under our hypothetical socialist society anyways.
The use of drunk driving was only an example; Alcohol harms the body (and productivity) regardless of the physical activity.
And for someone to claim that banning alcohol is undesirable but to then posit that banning vehicles isn't?
>So because some people are idiots everyone has to suffer
Everyone IS suffering already! Abuse of alcohol and even the generation of alcohol is not a "victimless crime." Our costs increase in a myriad of ways because of these abuses. We don't need scores of people abusing their freedoms; Merely enough to affect society as a whole. Just look at Covid-19; Not EVERYONE received severe Covid but enough did to shut down the entire global network. Not EVERYONE died of Covid but enough did for there to be serious economic impact, of which we are still feeling the effects today.
If socialism is not heeding best practices for the good of society, then what is? What point is there for learning the rules of nature if we don't try to adhere by them?
If workers are to be the focus of our society, why do we insist upon poisoning them? Or, more specifically, why do you want to poison them? Why do you want to incur more cost upon society than what is necessary?>>455184
How is it sabotage by improving society? Is it sabotage to make murder illegal? To prevent children from chewing broken glass? Is it sabotage to make crack cocaine and heroin illegal?
There is nothing of merit to alcohol; It is poisonous in many ways to the human body. Simply because it has a slight ancillary usage in social situations is irrelevant.
Capitalism promotes products merely to produce revenue; We should be better than those impulses.
And if banning alcohol is so impossible, then explain how you will fix the material reasons (of which even you must concede that there are many) that make people abuse alcohol?
