Read it and weep  Dept
Kyle Smith, "What We Learned from Prohibition”:
[Ken Burns’] "Prohibition,” a three-part miniseries ... has many lessons to teach us about such antiquated, 1920s-era ideas as federal overreach, unfunded mandates to states, runaway taxation, a belief that great political leaders can accelerate human progress, crony capitalism, and of course the dire need of Washington to take steps to improve the lot of the poor and the children.

In other words, "Prohibition” is, to an almost mischievous extent, an investigative report about 2011.
And if our Political Class (and the voters who keep electing them) had learned anything from that experience, we wouldn’t be here now.
