Twenty-one years ago, current political prisoner/former movie star Wesley Snipes exploded on the screen in his first major movie role as fictional drug kingpin ‘Nino Brown’ in the movie New Jack City. Here is a clip from the scene in the movie where his character stands trial for being a successful businessman. In this short monologue, Snipes’s character sums up the truth behind the ridiculous War on Drugs. Of course, the character of the Grand Inquisitor prosecuting attorney responds with the usual collectivist non-answer. (If you want to watch the entire movie, you should stop watching after you hear the prosecuting attorney’s non-answer.)
