On this edition of Free Culture Radio, we look back at the president who is most strongly associated with creating the war on drugs: disgraced US President Richard Milhouse Nixon.
Say what you will about disgraced former president Richard Nixon.
No really, go ahead. Say what you will.
Heck, I’ll start: disgraced former president Nixon was a hypocrite, a demagogue, a drunk, a bigot, a sexist, an anti-semite, and a racist. Can you imagine? I mean, how on earth did someone like that ever get elected president? Oh, right, pretty easily really.
Anyway. On this instalment of Free Culture Radio, we take a look back at disgraced former president Richard Nixon, would-be TV critic and father of the modern drug war.
