‘What Goes Around Comes Around’

It seems always have been so. ‘Prohibition’ in the USA affected not only liquor but also tobacco. Both were equally seen to be evil. For a while, the wickedness was banned.

Today, we have a similar situation. Alcohol and tobacco are evil and must be banned.

But other evils have been introduced into the mix – salt, sugar, global warming.

I wonder why it is that the obvious agenda of Health and ‘Sustainability’ has not been recognised by High and Mighty Rulers?

It seems to me that there is a missing piece in the UN aim to control ‘Sustainability’. Although it has been mentioned from time to time, no emphasis has been placed upon it. That missing piece is Population.

I don’t think that it is yet even remotely possible to ‘beam’ millions of people to another Earth-like planet, and it might never be possible to do so.

But there is no doubt in my mind that the UN intends to control Population. Nothing much else matters, when you think about it. What that means is that immigration of workers only increases the problem of Population.

What is the answer?

“Necessity is the mother of invention”. No one seems to consider that prime principle. For example, consider a tribe which was growing in numbers, and was finding it difficult to hunt and gather enough food. It must have been a GREAT idea to dig pits so that animals fell into the pits. An amount of effort was required to dig the pits, but that effort was rewarded manifold. Is not battery farming much the same?

All animals which we use to provide eggs, milk, meat, or whatever are ‘farmed’. Those animals have no ability to reason. They have emotions, and nothing else. There are still animals which humans can hunt in the wild, just as lions do, but such activities only benefit the specific hunters and only temporally.

Those ‘drugs’, which humans enjoy, should not be rationed. Big Pharma and Government aim to do just that – ration enjoyment. Wealthy people are not rationed via taxation, but poorer people are.

That situation is scandalous in reality. It is true that the poorest people have always been ‘rationed’ by their circumstances, and generally been rendered powerless by their circumstances. Democratic voting has, to some extent, redressed that imbalance. But the rich will will always be more powerful than the poor. Thus, if ASH ET AL are endowed with riches, they will dominate the poor. And that is what we have seen. ASH ET AL have been using their taxpayer, nay, smoker provided funds, to ‘ration’ tobacco products for the poor.

By the way, when I say ‘the poor’, I mean anyone whose ‘budget’ does not provide sufficient allowance for ‘pleasure’.  The fact is, over the last several decades, that successive Governments have persecuted the poor. But I am not saying that Government should persecute the rich. That is a different thing. What is important is that Government must not persecute the poor.

    Pleasure is a strange concept.

    I find pleasure/joy in the most darnedest places.

    As with ‘a livable wage’, it just depends upon the person.

    I have lived in ‘poverty’; yet, I still had ‘joy’.

    Then there are the rich that are too mean- spirited to enjoy their life.

    Round and round like a dog chasing it’s tail, such a discussion.

      Too true, Gary. I too have been very poor, especially when I first married and bought my first house. Very little money was left over after paying the mortgage, etc. And yet I got loads of pleasure from my three daughters as they grew up.
      The Guinness family was absolutely loaded, and yet several of the children of that family committed suicide.

        Indeed, a child’s joy when you come is a lasting pleasure.

    A correction.
    Tobacco was never banned or prohibited in the US. There were different States that enacted different levels of restrictions at different times but never complete prohibition. Only since the currency was trashed in ’71 has the federal government and its finance industry trained monkeys felt strong enough to attempt to take over public health as happened decades ago in the UK and the rest of Europe.

      Thanks for the link.
      But note that I said that: ‘‘Prohibition’ in the USA affected not only liquor but also tobacco”. I know that different States had different attitudes.
      The only reason that the Public Health Industry has been able to prosper is that the West has become wealthy enough to support it. In earlier times, religion was the excuse.
