So, consideration is once more being given to regulating the advertising policies that the alcohol industry self regulates! I seriously believe you are too late and the damage is already done.
In a land which boasts of its freedoms we have injured ourselves most grievously. Are we free to drink, not to drink, get drunk or advertise the same? At whatever point your "freedom" causes others to stumble, this action placing them in bondage, you are no longer free, rather under greater bondage.
The alcohol industry will do as they please and self govern as it pleases their pockets and attempts to "regulate" them will drain downwards till the waterfall of sin carries them to their doom.
Regulate sin? You can't! You will merely reap the rewards of what you have sown.
