  19. Background • Author • Drugs: The Hidden Danger to Youth • Themes of International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking ZCJ

  20. Author • Gore Vidal (1925-) is a prolific American novelist, playwright and essayist; one of the greatest stylists of contemporary American prose. Clarence Page: Pulitzer Prize winner; columnist and member of the editorial board at the Chicago Tribune since 1984. Twice a week, he addresses, with passion and style, the social, economic and political issues affecting people in the United States such as crime, education, housing, hunger and bigotry. ZCJ

  21. Charles Krauthammer: After graduating from Canada’s McGill University, Charles studied political theory at Oxford and then went to Harvard Medical School. Trained as a neurologist and psychiatrist, he returned to political analysis, first as a senior editor at the New Republic and then as a syndicated columnist. A collection of his essays has been published, and he has won a Pulitzer Prize for commentary. The excerpt here is taken from an article he published in 1988. ZCJ

  22. Drugs: The Hidden Danger to Youth • Today, young people using "ecstasy tablets" semi-openly at parties is not a rare scene in some cities. Among officially registered drug addicts, 70 per cent are under the age of 35. And the types of drugs they use are becoming more and more diverse. • Many factors are involved such as teaching in schools, the role of neighborhood committees and non-government organizations (NGOs), mental health support, family environment and media influence. ZCJ

  23. The world needs a well-considered practical approach and coordinated efforts to make headway. • The reality today is that in many places, young people have very limited access to knowledge about drugs although drug abuse and trafficking are spreading in these areas. • In large cities and relatively rich areas, many of the attempts we have seen so far, mainly represented by lectures or posters and short-term campaigns, are superficial. ZCJ

  24. What has been done is far from being enough to equip young people with a comprehensive knowledge about drugs and to make them understand the dire consequences of using drugs. • It is true that schools, community organizations and NGOs have their respective difficulties in doing more to fight the war on drugs. ZCJ

  25. It is the government's duty to find ways to solve these problems. At the same time, parents and teachers should learn to improve their communication skills and provide emotional support for their children or students. Young people should also be encouraged to seek counseling for emotional problems. ZCJ

  26. Themes of International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking • 2000: Facing reality: denial, corruption and violence — “面对现实:拒绝堕落和暴力” • 2001: Sports against drugs — “体育拒绝毒品” • 2002: Substance Abuse and HIV/AIDS — “吸毒与艾滋病” ZCJ

  27. 2003: Let‘s talk about drugs … • — “让我们讨论毒品问题”; • 2004:"Drugs: treatment works“ • — “抵制毒品,参与禁毒” ZCJ

  28. Passage 1 Drugs

  29. Text Analysis • Don’t say that marijuana is addictive and dangerous when it is neither, unlike “speed”, which kills most unpleasantly, or heroin, which is addictive and difficult to kick. (Para. 1) • Don’t exaggerate the harmful effect of marijuana. It is neither addictive nor dangerous, as is often described. Differentiate it from “speed” and heroin. “Speed” causes death while heroin is difficult to stop using once a person is addicted to it. ZCJ

  36. Along with exhortation and warning, it might be good for our citizens to recall that the United States was the creation of men who believed that each man has the right to do what he wants with his own life as long as he does not interfere with his neighbor’s pursuit of happiness. (Para. 3) ZCJ

  37. While urging people not to take drugs and warning them of the dangers, we should remind our citizens that their country was created by the early European settlers who believed that a man has the right to do whatever he wishes to his own life as long as what he does doesn’t prevent his neighbor from seeking happiness. ZCJ

  44. It is a lucky thing for the American moralist that we have no public memory of anything that happened last Tuesday. (Para. 6) • Most Americans have a bad memory and don’t remember anything that happened in the past. This is a lucky thing for those people who advocate forbidding drugs (for if they remembered what Prohibition in the 1920s resulted in, they would see that prohibition of drugs will not be feasible, either). ZCJ

  45. Last year when the supply of marijuana was slightly reduced by the Feds, the pushers got the kids hooked on heroin and deaths increased ramatically. (Para. 8) Last year when the FBI got tough with drug dealing, and the supply of marijuana went slightly down, young marijuana users had to shift to a more harmful drug—heroin.

(Para. 9) Finally, if the Mafia couldn’t get money out of legal drug dealing when drugs are legal, the Bureau of Narcotics would be disbanded. This is something the government will surely try hard to prevent because the people working in the Bureau would lose their jobs. ZCJ
