Alcohol is the drug of the mind. All the exaggerations that this already brings to life in a sober state are simply further exaggerated under the influence of alcohol. Be it love or hate, exuberance or grief. Be it self-overestimation or depression, joy or frustration. If the mind already has no calm center when sober, it loses it completely under „its“ drug. „Expansion of consciousness“ in areas not accessible to his understanding does not take place. Only a massively exaggerated copy of the old known to him. Therefore, other drugs that might really expand consciousness, expand into regions that would be beyond the comprehension of the mind, are probably forbidden. But alcohol is allowed. The ruler allows only what serves him and increases his power.
