All of Hitchens points were well-reasoned, while Perry just seemed rely upon received wisdom. The point is that we've allowed a very broad concept of "addiction" to swallow up human freewill and choice. Many people feel all sorts of very powerful compulsions to do what they do -- some involved substances, some involve repetitive behaviors, and some involve elaborate undertakings. But unless we first start with the principle that "human beings are capable of making a choice," then everything we do (even providing necessary and humane help) would be purposeless.
Thanks for the review -- I had the exact same questions myself. A little bit of language translation issues on the names of these products (or fine distinctions in connotation). I ordered the wax. We'll see.
I almost stepped on this rattlesnake at Jones Gap today on a family hike. Able to maintain proper manly bearing, but just barely. I took this video with my phone. (Zoom. More zoom. Need telephoto lens for phone).
