Brad Pitt: Smarter than he looks

In the October issue of Esquire, the Pitt makes a lot of sense: "I'll agree that drugs are harmful, but we spend $40 billion a year on the drug war and $8 billion a year
incarcerating people, 25 percent of whom are in there for drugs. If someone wants to do drugs, as long as it doesn't affect anyone else in a violent manner, as long as he or she isn't corrupting minors or driving under the influence or endangering others, shouldn't a person have that right? I know the drug war is a can't-miss political issue that no one wants to touch. It's the big pink elephant no one wants to talk about. Think of all the other things we could do with the money." Pitt went on to recommend the book Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do, by the late libertarian writer Peter McWilliams.

Comments:
So, maybe he and Angelina do make good candidates for roles in an Ayn Rand movie.
 
Smarter than he looks? That would be hard to do, considering how GOOORRGEOUS he is. [/joking]

But that's really interesting to hear. There seem to be more and more libertarians in Hollywood. I wonder if it is indicitative of the growing popularity of libertarian ideas. I reckon we'll see in time.
 
Well he's not full-on Libertarian unless he said we should never have taxed that money away from people.

"Think of all the other things we could do with the money."

Does he mean "we" as in taxpayers or "we" as in government? Still, kudos to Jenna for a good find. Maybe a huge surge in female Libertarians will follow.
