However I am in favor for taking privileges away from people who abuse them
QuoteHowever I am in favor for taking privileges away from people who abuse themAh, I think that says it all really; to you, life comes down to being a privilege, not a fundamental right. I guess if you don't regard yourself as free it must seem quite reasonable to dictate how other people should live their life.
The only reason to make that fact clear is if you're trying to make the issue emotive instead of rational.
Someone getting run over by a drunken driver doesn't mean that people only get run over by drunken drivers, so using that, and the similar examples you cite, as arguments to support your case doesn't really work. The same thing happens with or without alcohol or other intoxicants and the absence of one does not result in absence of the other. Similarly, the presence of one does not guarantee presence of the other.
The issue/question was never "Does alcohol make you less able to make rational decisions?"
You then joined in, with your emotive comments about women being exposed to violence because of alcohol, and asking how I would feel if my child was run over by a drunken driver, implying that I would feel different depending on how my child was killed. Ah yes - looking back I notice that you also added that the drunk driver who had killed my child "has operated a vehicle drunk before and received a slap on the wrist for doing it."
You may be able to get away with emotive but irrational arguments and changing the topic to win an argument with some people, but not with me.
i don't know why youths like to drink till drunk dead when they knew that the feeling of hangover is not good.
