Okay that seems like an interesting position. Correct me if i'm wrong - surely it is just an assumption though?

FAE is testable psychology. I think you are right for some cases and the RA does have some weight in our future but it still ignores varying factors. There's many different reasons people turn to drugs - Nature, nurture and environmental factors are all important.

There's a link to heroin use and unemployment and poverty, particularly in my country (Scotland) and parts of Russia.

FAE observes the changes.
RA changes the observations.

Testable psychology relies on generalizing to some degree - whether we're thinking through randomized samples or surveys. It also allows the general public to use psychological "effects" or "phenomena" to govern their behavior. Yes, the Stanley Milgram experiments (shock my filthy item daddyistration) were terrifying and horrifying, but do you know how we can prevent this result from happening? By not consenting mindlessly, questioning authority, and taking responsibility for our own actions. There may be a link between unemployment and heroin abuse but I think it has more to do with an unfortunate acceptance of an external locus of control. A good example would be the skyrocket in drug abuse during the Great Depression, when the entire world's economy was going to shit and the world seemed like it was taking a downward spiral into the ground. This same Depression led to Hitler's rise to power, which the people of Germany actually consented to (despite his craziness) because he said he'd fix Germany (which he then he did). He took responsibility.
Then again, this is simply an ideology that I base my own life around. The world can be explained in billions of different ways and no one has a wrong idea about it. I respect your opinion, though I can't say I agree with it.

tl;dr - If we believe we have control over our lives, we may discover we do. It works for me, but it might not for you. And that's okay.

Its not always their fault, think about people who grew in a place where they were showed that drugs were ok, with drug addict parents who never teached them that those things were wrong
#106 - Womens Study Major (07/23/2013) [-]
Well, there's also the babies born addicted to drugs because of their irresponsible mother's decisions...
#90 - jakeattack (07/23/2013) [-]
Okay he's retarded, but a better way to put things is that many things can influence a persons life towards a bad end, yes ultimately it is up to them but, there are tough times, and people do stupid things they normally wouldn't do. It doesn't excuse them, they still need to live with their decision, but once addicted to a drug the effects become far beyond normal choice. Chemical altering the way the brain is working, it locks them in to their mistake. Other crimes yeah there's a slippery path, but doing one stupid thing, like a bad fight, it doesn't make you start craving fights with the icy grip heroin n cocaine have

What if a doctor prescribes too much morphine, and the person that it was prescribed to gets hooked? The person may not have enough money to keep up their addiction after they lose their prescription, and they turn to the cheaper alternative, heroin. Happened to an old friend of mine

How about some girls in the sex slave system who are forced to drugs - as its easier to transport them and stop them escaping when they're addicted as they rely on the supplier for their next "hit"...

Case opened...
#33 - delivering (07/23/2013) [-]
Fair point my good man.
However, the counterpoint to that is - that is a very insignificant minority, and the vast majority of addicts are people who tried drugs of their own free will.
User avatar #36 - themisstophat (07/23/2013) [-]
Good lady I'll have you know... Haha.

Yes a insignificant number but still a number, so its not every person's complete fault.
That is all I wanted to point out
#104 - Womens Study Major (07/23/2013) [-]
Would you rather him say "why are we applauding someone for acting like a normal member of society unless they are part of the minority of drug abusers that were forced into doing drugs in the first place"? It doesn't have the same ring to it.

No, as that has nothing to do with his original point. Idiot.
