It has occurred to me that the Anti-Smoker Industry that they are very fond of C words.
The first is of course “children”. They are obsessed with the children and drag them into every possible argument. Children mustn’t have access to tobacco, nor any wisp of smoke, and of course the mere sight of a cigarette is enough to drive any child into a lifetime of addiction to hard drugs. They know that mankind is hard wired to protect its offspring so they use and abuse this fact whenever and wherever they can.
This child obsession strikes me as somewhat ironic as the industry itself is remarkably childlike. They have a petulant attitude towards the tobacco industry, shouting “liar liar” at any argument, or sticking their fingers in their ears and shouting “nah nah nah” rather than listen to any rational argument that counters their fairy tales. They are like the bold spoiled little brat, demanding things and stamping their feet when they don’t get their way.
The second word so beloved of the industry is of course “cancer”. They know this word strikes fear into the hearts of the population so they use it at every available opportunity, Smoking, according to them, “causes” not just lung cancer but every imaginable form of cancer in the medical book, and a few they haven’t invented yet.
Again there is a huge irony here, as the greatest cancer in modern society is the Nanny State, which of course grew out of the Anti-Smoker movement. Like a cancer, it started small and slowly spread its diseased cells through the population. After gaining a foothold, it started to mutate from the anti-tobacco cancer into various other forms such as the ant-alcohol, anti-sugar and anti-fat variations.
This cancer has spread rapidly in recent years and is now prevalent throughout the world, reaching as high as the World Health Organisation and even the World Bank. And like any cancer it is gradually killing off its host – in this case individual freedom.
This is of course a third C word that applies.
They are all a shower of C***s. [Fill in as appropriate.]
