    Compare the witch hunters of the Middle Ages. Evil, cold, calculating, greedy for money and power - and feeding a lot of fearmongering manure to the rabble, in order to make the rabble their willing tools. You do not really think that the witch hunters themselves believed in "witches", eh?


    source: Malleus Maleficarum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Now take the above text and replace "witchcraft" with "dangers of second-hand smoke".
    Got it?

    For the Malleus Maleficarum ("Witch Hammer") of our times, read this:
    Rampant Antismoking Signifies Grave Danger
    I'm reading that now... all I want to know is, who died and made these fascist ideologues king?

    The fascists have always been among us. It's only now that they've been given a voice and the means to make it heard (all over again).

    I think it's probably the number 1 worst and most evil character defect in the human race, this need to control others based on one's own values, with no regard for the opinions of those who are to be controlled, because somehow they're "defective" or "subhuman," who knows how they justify it to themselves; it's just evil, a perversion of the human spirit, an insult to the entire human race that there are people like this, and that the rest of us suffer them to inflict their evil on all and sundry who disagree with them.

    I think if we gave IQ tests to everyone in gov't and dismissed all those who didn't score at least 100, the nat'l debt would decrease by half.

    Andria,

    You got it all wrong... an IQ under 80 is a prereq to be employed by *any* government in the world. Some even lower. I think the guys at the Mexican FEDERAL COMISSION FOR THE PREVENTION OF HEALTH RISKS (Spanish acronym: COFEPRIS) are among those.

    They banned ecigs on the grounds that they haven't studied them yet... Senate impugned the decision and lost, wanna gue$$ who$e intere$t$ are being defended?

    Well, that's right in line with my assertion that gov't workers are those too stupid to get any other kind of job. And these are the people we elect to represent us??? I sure as heck don't feel represented.

    I fully agree.
    In Tobacco Control, the problem is not the tobacco. It is the control.

    Vapingpoint Liz - an over 70-year-old lady vaper from the UK - puts it very well indeed : You lot MAKE ME SICK

    So, as I have said before, I say again, the problem for vapers is the attitude of Tobacco Control to smoking that is the actual nub of our problem. Most ordinary people don't care whether smokers smoke or vapers vape. It was ever only an issue with those who found they could earn a damn good living with a job in the new persecution promoting industry of Tobacco Control - all for the good of humanity and especially the children. I am sure, in the beginning, the motive was pure, but it is now a "business" - an employment opportunity in which there are "reputations" at stake and "reports" and "advisors".
    (the whole blogpost is worth reading)

    As to the bolded part of your statement: I also fully agree. Michael J. McFadden describes it very clearly: http://www.tobakkonacht.com/preface.html

    So does Edmund Burke:
    "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

    I just read that, and I echo the author's sentiments completely. And just so it's out there... I *never* use the word "fascist" lightly or flippantly; my first husband was the child of Polish Jews who by some miracle survived the camps they were sent to; they were 1st cousins, but apparently in Jewish culture the marriage of 1st cousins is not a terrible thing, and considering what they had been through, each in their separate camps, it's understandable that in the aftermath they would cleave to one another -- they, and one other cousin, were the only survivors of their entire extended family; the other cousin ended up resettled in Australia, so it's like another Diaspora. My first husband made certain that I saw the documentary film Shoah, and that is just harrowing, about 9 hrs of pure horror. So, I never use the term "fascist" lightly, I know exactly what fascists are capable of -- if good people do nothing.

    Maybe *we* are those good people. Most of us have given up cigarettes completely -- with a few dual-user exceptions; but we know, there are still millions of smokers out there, being persecuted for an addiction that many of them are completely helpless to do anything about. The means has arrived for them to finally be liberated -- if the ANTZ fascists don't get their way and manage to convince the world that vaping is the same as smoking. We are so determined that we will not be persecuted, since vaping is NOT smoking, but what about those who haven't yet heard the "good news"? If the ANTZ get their childish way, those smokers never will hear that good news, never have the opportunity to save their own lives -- and that is JUST EVIL.

    Much like a snake. Imagine that.

    Andria, be grateful you don't live in Mexico. We have two kinds of "representatives" and "senators" and the two represent only their interests and their parties'. One kind are elected in the ballots and is called "proportional majority", the other are designated by their respective parties (they're calle "plurinominals" —"pluris" in pop talk) and you see the same faces decades after decades, jumping from one chamber to the other.

    They were instituted when the PRI ruled lord of the country —and it was a presidential ruled one– as a sort of leveling force for minorities. No one but them would be able to remove them now, since this depends on them voting against themselves (we're the most perverted form of democracy now, where no one commands). Wanna guess what kind of perks they vote for themselves as a compensation for their patriotic services? A pasha would be envious!

    Because of the connection with the holocaust, it is either avoided or invoked. But fascism is one form of government, that doesn't necessarily involved the lengths to where some went. The concept as a gov't fills a category that because of it's history is overlooked, imo.

    As economic systems:

    Socialism - gov't owns all
    Fascism - gov't controls all
    Free Market - leaves the economy alone

    In a political system, under a free market, a Republic acknowledges individual rights and protects them and enforces justice on violations, and in economic matters, that means against theft and fraud.

    Fascism fills the hole left from looking at economies as only either socialist or capitalist. A 'mixed economy' is fascist by degree - it allows some 'favored' industries' to trade freely, but controls other industries. The tendency is to (usually gradually so as not to scare the citizenry) increase control to where you have a total fascist economy. OR sometimes the solution is to just go to socialism - which is more honest since 'control=ownership'.

    When I use the word, I only mean it in this manner - as an economic system.
