Global Anti-Tobacco Agenda

Yet another fight against corruption -- Return to main page

t must be said that for about 25 years the WHO has tried to achieve a firm control on tobacco. However, because of tobacco's immense economic importance, the member nations were lukewarm about the effective implementation of tobacco control measures.

Moreover, the anti-tobacco cartel had not yet gained momentum and finances sufficient to tip the hand of the WHO itself, so its propaganda and falsified information about tobacco, smoking, and smokers went mostly unheard.

All that has changed now. The United States, Canada, Australia, and other countries have been permeated by the cartel, which has now achieved firm controlover the various departments of health, and especially over the public money-dispensing machinery.

In 1998 the cartel was successful in planting Gro Harlem Brundtland in the" Direktorat" of the organization. Mainly because of the political and financial support of the fanatically anti-smoking US administration, Gro Harlem Brundtland managed to wedge the anti-tobacco agenda ahead of the realepidemics the WHO is supposed to take care of, and obtain the allocation of sizeable funding to the anti-tobacco agenda.

So the powerful anti-tobacco industry now has control over this authoritative organization.

The fight against scientific and moral corruption has now become truly global.

The WHO's global anti-tobacco agenda is to rush all member nations into an agreement that is legally binding, and that forces the member nations to start a systematic persecution of smokers under the pretense of "helping them," while forcing huge taxationon the victims of this persecution.

The "help-the-smokers" pre-emptive move is eminently important because it provides moral and political justification for the actions of the executioners of truth and freedom, labels scientific opposition as tobacco industry lobbying, and nullifies the objections of smokers.

In fact, those objections will be perceived as coming from people "who are addicted victims of the tobacco industry, and must be helped," -- thus what those "victims" say or do cannot be regarded as a matter worthy of consideration, but simply as a manifestation of their disease. This creates a perception very much like the one of a nurse working in a psychiatric hospital, who knows not to take seriously what the patient says and to proceed with the cure regardless of the patient's willingness to take it. It is also perfectly legitimate to punish the patient who refuses the cure. And we all know what the admission to a psychiatric hospital does to the reputation of a sane person.

By using propaganda lies to convince smokers that they are sick, and using the resistance offered by those smokers who refuse to swallow the propaganda as a demonstration of their addiction to a product legally offered by the tobacco industry, the perpetrators will deflect any outrage that may arise against them towards that industry, clearing themselves from any backlash and furthering, unpunished, their agenda of control.

This totally irresponsible -- actually, criminal -- and deliberate formulation preamble is extremely dangerous and insidious, and it is now at the foundations of the anti-tobacco cartel's political presentation. It was first implemented in Canada by the British Columbia Ministry of Health to deflect any rational objection to the persecution of smokers and to the looting of the tobacco industry.

With an almost regal contempt directed to those suspected of "not supporting health" the WHO will exert tremendous pressure and will embarrass reluctant countries, so that they cave in and implement a policy of prohibition and taxation, while allowing the WHO and its partners to interfere with and even coordinatethe internal affairs of those countries.

The fatal error that the member countries will probably make is to go along -- for political reasons and even if not convinced -- with an agenda that is based on scientific fraudwhile hoping to stall and delay, waiting for political winds to change in the West. But in the meantime, the pharmaceutical multinationals and the interests they represent will have installed themselves and the anti-tobacco cancer, with all the social, political, and economic devastation it carries, will be unstoppable.

Strong political opposition must be directed towards unmasking this world-size fraud. Not for the first time, a powerful and paternalistic health establishment is seeking inappropriate social and political control in the belief that its ideas represent the only rational and legitimate perspective on progressive human governance. Through the WHO they seek to extend this vision through "globalization" of health policy. In other words, they want power and they want it NOW. But, as the WHO itself says, prevention is better than cure-- and a campaign of education and information, coupled with legal mechanisms to curb politically unhealthy behaviours, could turn the tides.

QUOTE: "Specific protocols to be agreed within the convention will address cigarette pricing policies, antismuggling measures, advertising and promotion (including promotion on the internet), and cigarette labelling."

Notice the reference to the Internet. The anti-tobacco cartel's successful effort to control media information on tobacco in certain countries did not work for the Internet because of its global nature. By pressuring all the governments of the world to participate in the persecution of tobacco, the WHO and the cartel it represents intend to control the only media where voices of dissent can be heard at a planetary level. By delegating the control of the Internet servers to the member nations, the WHO will be able to effectively eliminate not just the promotion of tobacco, but especially the exposure of the frauds that the WHO itself promotes. Sites like FORCES will be silenced or restricted because perceived as tobacco-promoting sites. Another important side effect will be the elimination of the free flow of that freedom-oriented mentality that tends to support personal choice. As is the case in most of the Unites States media, dissenters will have no voice and will be unaware of each other's activities, thus fragmenting and eventually losing significance and disappearing.

Such intrusions are all the more worrying in the context of the WHO's partnership with the pharmaceutical industry, described in this WHO document:

QUOTE: "The Project provides a model which can provide a basis for future partnerships with the private sector in other important health areas."

Now, just remember that anything affects health, especially behaviour, and the picture of what abuses lie in store for us. And the picture becomes blood-chillingly clear.

MEGALOMANIA GOES GLOBAL
October 15, 2000 - 'Bold steps are required' [any means 'necessary'?] to stop the 'global tobacco epidemic' ", [since when do 'epidemics' spread voluntarily?] says Paul Knepprath, vice president, government relations, [lobbyist] of the American Lung Association of California [BIG smokers' tax recipient]. "The [international Framework Convention on Tobacco Control] treaty must ban all tobacco advertisement and promotion. It must 'protect children from environmental (second-hand) tobacco smoke'. It must [LOOT} 'hold the tobacco industry accountable for' its actions." Free speech? Due process? Evidence? Who needs THEM?

GANGING UP AGAINST SMOKERS IN THE WORLD
October 8, 2000 - This is the latest move by WHO to try to control thought via controlling employment, the press, etc. (admittedly, employment by WHO and the press owned by WHO). For an international agency to embark on this sort of tactic is both shameful, amazing, and frightening. Perhaps most interesting is that this was posted only yesterday, and just prior to the FCTC meeting next week.

THE WHO IS PUSHING NICOTINE
"Tobacco control experts say it does not stand to reason that harmful nicotine from cigarettes is available freely while prescriptions are necessary for therapeutic nicotine sold by pharmaceuticals."
The clangorous contradictions of the anti-tobacco cartel about nicotine being "therapeutic" if sold by the pharmaceutical industry and being "dangerous and addictive" if sold by the tobacco industry are now parroted by the WHO. It's a further demonstration of how this organization has sold itself out to the point of becoming a sales agency for the pharmaceutical industry
CIGARETTES SHOULD BE REGULATED LIKE OTHER DRUGS, SAYS DIRECTOR-GENERAL
... AND IF PERSUASION, FRAUDS AND POLITICS DON'T WORK, WE'LL USE BRUTE FORCE...
Quote by a senior World Bank economist:
"Policy based lending is where the bank really has power--I mean brute force. When countries really have their backs against the wall, they can be pushed into reforming things at a broad policy level that normally, in the context of projects, they can't. The health sector can be caught up in this issue of conditionality."

(Added January 11, 2000)
The systematic campaign of hate and intimidation by the World Health Oppression si stimulated in the Third World with the help of the US. Youth in the Third World alredy called "addicted" by the international cartel. The possibility of loot money is waved under the nose of politicians of poor countries to stimulate their greed.

"The tobacco industry (must) be held publicly accountable at the national and international level through legislation, litigation and other means,..." Roberta Walburn, of WHO's Tobacco-Free Initiative, said though litigation does not promise a winning situation against tobacco firms, it is observed as the most effective tool in controlling cigarette consumption. Ms Walburn was one of the lawyers backing the Minnesota State and Blue Cross (insurance) lawsuit against the tobacco industry in the US.

Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee told the conference young Indians should be denied access to tobacco as they comprise nearly 17% of addicts.
