Opioids and ‘the Good Life’

Lately there’s been a great deal of media coverage of the opioid crisis that is going on in the country. It is commonly referred to as a “‘disease’ along with alcoholism and drug abuse. This seems to be an egregious example of political correctness that disguises the real problem in the fog of a euphemism. Cancer is a disease, addiction is a spiritual problem. It is what happens when a society’s primary values are entertainment and pleasure rooted in materialism. And it represents the culmination of what secularism and liberalism have accomplished in their efforts to tear down all restraints to one’s conscience by destroying Christianity and biblical morality.
