Are You a Drunk Asshole?

June 18, 2011

Alcohol and dumbasses don’t mix. When you mix the two together, this is what you get. Some people can handle their alcohol. Clearly, others can’t. You can guess what kind of upbringing and parents these children of chaos had. These are people who grew up without boundaries. They grew up in families with a long history of alcoholism. These people should not be allowed to consume alcohol. Ever.

When drinking is used an excuse to behave badly that is the first sign of alcohol abuse. These are rarely isolated incidents. These people are using alcohol to cover up the pain of the past. I’m sure they did get caught up in the emotions of the day, but so did a lot of other people who didn’t set their city ablaze.

They have identified themselves as true assholes. These people have embarrassed themselves, their loved ones and their city. The connection between alcohol abuse and personality disorders is real.

    When people gratify their own needs with utter disregard for the harm it might cause others, it’s a sign of anti-social personality disorder. Alcohol is just part of the equation.

    Society needs to send a strong message to these douchebags- zero tolerance for douchebaggery. Ban them from sporting events and revoke their right to purchase alcohol. And mandatory AA meetings.

    Alcohol is revealing their true nature. Alcohol is not the problem. People with unchecked personality disorders are the problem.

      After we have assigned personal responsibility, it’s time to take a look at society’s role.

      It’s no secret that the gap between the ultra rich and the very poor is widening. Vancouver is the most expensive city in Canada. Most of the rioters were from outside the metro area. The disparity between the rich and poor needs to be addressed ASAP or riots will become more common. We’ve seen it in Libya, Syria and Egypt. We would be foolish to think it can’t happen here. The middle class is eroding in North America and that is the only thing that has ensured political stability. The riots are a sign of frustration and anger that is growing at an alarming rate.

      These dramatic social changes will have a destructive effect on society’s most vulnerable. Those with a family history of personality disorders will be hit hardest by the economic gap. The link between poverty and personality disorders is real. The hardships that come with poverty create other problems- depression, homelessness, alcohol abuse and increased rates of sexual assault. You will see a rise in trauma-related disorders. You will see a ripple effect. The riots in Vancouver are just a wake up call.
