Williams purpose of implementing this reaction to madness impacts Blanche’s choices throughout the play and further exemplifies how madness is being dealt with unwanted and impulsive reactions. Similarly in Blue Jasmine Ginger tells Jasmine ‘You better take more of those pills. You're shot.’ There are many striking similarities being shown here from this quote, just as Stella noticed Blanche drinks alcohol to deal with her vulnerability due madness. For this reason Ginger is also noticing such a thing happening with Jasmine where she takes pills to deal with the madness. Interestingly it can be seen that when compared Stella has a more negative attitude towards her sister using alcohol whereas Ginger has a more assuring one.

From 1980 to 2000 the “number of individuals incarcerated increased 300%, with the majority being African Americans” (Sirin 7). The last few years have seen “some
However drug usage constitutes an action which results in not only in the mental and physical harm upon the drug user but also the direct and indirect harm upon the surroundings of the drug user which further proves why soft paternalism would support the criminalisation of drug usage. Drug usage often directly and indirectly harms the following aspects of the drug user’s life; their marriage or personal relationships with other people, the stability of their family life, their financial issues which others may depend on as well as the law and order of a country (Medic8.com 2014). For example in the United States, approximately $50 billion is spent annually by the government in an attempt to curtail the use and collateral damage caused by illegal drugs (Ahmad 2004). This serves as evidence of indirect financial harm incurred upon non-drug user citizens who pay taxes to finance governmental expenditure so that the needs of all citizens are adequately provided for. However instead of the government spending additional money on education or infrastructure it is covering rehabilitation health and crime related costs which are caused by 9.4% of the American population whom are illegally abusing illicit drugs (Ahmad 2004).
The "Unspoken Abuse" scenes are very effective in showing the deterioration in Ruby 's mental health as she returns from her weekends, as for Jimmy, the irony of wanting so much to be chosen, ends in him suffering corresponding and similar physical and sexual abuse to Ruby. The repetition of the clapping song in the scenes emphasises the frequency of the abuse perpetrated on Ruby and Jimmy, and whilst Ruby 's scenes ended with the line "I promise not to tell", Jimmy does not speak, which foreshadows the traits of sexually assaulted victims; blame and ashamedness. These scenes exhibited the general idea of what it was like to be chosen during the assimilation
