How true. In fact it is a BAD analogy, which Nateman addresses in the very
next sentences:

"Recreational Heroin does not help one deal with reality but rather to deny
it. (Taken for severe pain it is another matter). Cars however do help one
to deal better with reality. Travel across a continent is possible in only a
handfull of days with cars (not to mention the bounties aquired in trade for
those who don't even drive).Heroin's only destination however is the grave."

What do you say, KMO?

(I wouldn't ask if you honestly added to you half-truth that you agree with
the rest of Nateman's argument or mentioned why not).
