I read a piece over at ‘Facts Do Matter’ and it got me onto a train of thought.
Why is there friction between Smokers, Vapers and those new kids on the block – the Heat not Burn [Scorchers?] crowd?
It makes no sense. If the Vapers are worried that the Scorchers are going to somehow put electrofags out of business then that is a patent nonsense. If there is a demand for electrofags then there will be a supply. No one is suggesting that Vapers be forced to become Scorchers?
And what is this shit that Heat not Burn devices are manufactured by Big Tobacco? Who gives a shit? When I go to buy a product I choose the one that suits my needs and I don’t give a flying fuck who manufactures it or what damage I might do to myself [which reminds me – I must investigate buying a chainsaw]. They could also manufacture chemical weapons or heavy armaments for all I care.
Basically the world is divided into five groups – Smokers, Vapers, Scorchers, Anti-Smokers and those who couldn’t care less [but only because Nanny hasn’t gotten around to them yet]. The first three should all be in the same camp fighting the common enemy – the Anti-Smokers. It really shouldn’t be a case of which is ‘safer’ or worse still, which will get more approval from Nanny. It should all be down to individual choice. If you enjoy your cigarette/pipe/cigar/electrofag/HnB then fair play – that is your individual choice and you shouldn’t need to care what others do. The only group that stands out is the Anti-Smoker as that is the only group that forces coercion and bullying to achieve its end.
So for fuck’s sake let’s pull together. Stop trying to curry favour with the Antis by screaming about how much safer Vaping or Scorching is. The Antis are not your friend – they are your greatest enemy. Don’t feel smug because some ‘research’ states that Vaping or Scorching are safer – it is irrelevant to the greater scheme of things.
The common fight is to be treated like adults where we should be able to make our own choices, whatever they are and to stop being treated like idiot children.
It’s called freedom.
