We Smokers and Vapers do not think enough about the ‘worst scenario’. The Zealots have brainwashed us to expect gradual escalation of the persecution.
What is the worst scenario? It is that tobacco growing and the extraction of nicotine from the plants is prohibited. True, such a policy might devastate the economies of many countries, both in the short term and the long term, but, with tobacco control, the rule of “LET THEM EAT CAKE” stands.
The Marie Antoinette response to the claim that the people had no bread, “In that case, let them eat cake”, has echoed down the generations. It is still with us today. In mental hospitals, patients who enjoy, and find relief via tobacco, are to be ‘helped’ to avoid the devastating dangers of tobacco, in ANY form, including snus, snuff, chewing tobacco, ecigs, etc. They will be ‘helped’ to be prohibited by brutality. Smokers will be prohibited and ‘helped’ by being brutalised.
Smokers in mental health establishments will become ‘Beasts’. if they not already are. I remember hearing a conversation in a local pub in Wales between a couple of cattle farmers. They referred to the cattle as ‘beasts’.
As far as tobacco control is concerned, smokers and vapers are ‘beasts’. They can be killed and fed to the non-smoking populace as some sort of mash, like mashed potatoes.
Is that not what Cameron et al, when approving PP, did? How could a Prime Minister be so stupid? How could he regard smokers and vapers as beasts?
I’m a bit bogeyed. Enough for tonight.
