Prohibition – last call for alcohol !

Ken Burns

“Only Americans” can turn such a sacred beverage into obscurity! Prohibition banned the sale and transportation of alcohol beverages. All in the name of religious (ironically) and moral value. The outcome, was a train wreck! Ken Burns (my favorite film documentarian) and Lynn Novick brilliantly lay out the chivalric intentions of Prohibition and eventually the demise of Prohibition. What I took from the film was that immigrants and religion, played a crucial role for the cause of prohibition. And big brother (Law makers and enforcers) trying to implement a placid law. Prohibition was a big waste of time and did more harm to society and did not improve American’s quality of life. Check out the clip, and watch the documentary.
