American Carnage by Christopher Caldwell | Articles | First Things

There have always been drug addicts in need of help, but the scale of the present wave of heroin and opioid abuse is unprecedented. Fifty-two thousand Americans died of overdoses in 2015—about four times as many as died from gun homicides and half again as many as died in car accidents. 

I expressed my thoughts on the opioid crisis before, this article is a must though. Spiritual bankruptcy, zero prospects and a feeling of worthlessness combined with unfettered access to these drugs is a nightmare scenario. 

It is time for an intervention here, not Syria.
