Obervations in Commerce 19; Alcohol and Responsibility

OIC 19.

Alcohol and Responsibility

Lightbulb moment; today I read 'That's why people get drunk, so they don't have to be responisble for their actions.'
And so it hit me.
No wonder alcohol is just one fine example of a 'soma' for the masses.
Due to the chemical-effects alcohol has on the human body, you the consumer can feel at ease that your actions are no longer your responsibility whilst under the influence.
We live in a fairytale constructed upon the foundations of not taking responsiblity for our actions.
Is it any wonder why so many people drink to get drunk in Western Societies? And why alcohol is socially and legally accepted so widely through civilisations?
