So, kid. You believe alcohol must be banned? Sit on these steps and let me tell you a story.
Yeah it must be banned, for it destroys good people and isn't good at all. Also, okay.
So, kid, what you are speaking of is temperance. It is a social reform movement that has gone back to the 1800s.
But what kind of effects? Alcohol isn't banned at all!
And the temperance movement was actually quite successful. In fact it even got itself a constitutional amendment for a while before that was repealed. However the effects of it are still viewed to this day.
Wow Mister, thanks for the lesson! Now I really am educated!
Well, the effects it caused were giving people a broader understanding of alcohol and its dangers. People were educated about alcoholism from the movement and it has improved society ever since.
Good luck Mister!
Anytime kid! Now back to rushing to my house so I can turn off my oven!
