This piece from the Telegraph.co.uk is as interesting as it is disinforming. The opening statement is the absolutely indemonstrable and typical anti-tobacco fraud:
: “Our map for The Daily Telegraph is based on the number of people admitted to hospital for breathing difficulties caused by cigarettes.” But how do they know? They don’t, of course. They don’t because they can’t. They can’t because breathing difficulties are caused by hundreds of factors – ignored by rotten “public health” to scare people into quitting through false information.
Let’s go on with an even more perverse statement: “We know that older people and people who are poorer are more likely to suffer from diseases caused by smoking”. But if they are old and poor, they are exposed to many more of the other factors that cause those diseases. Here the utterly dishonest (and idiotic) implication to con people into quitting is that if those old and poor people weren’t smoking they would not suffer from those diseases – or, perhaps, old and poor people would suffer as much as rich and younger people? Remember always: not one disease is unique to smoking, or can be scientifically demonstrated to be caused by smoking.
Let us proceed with the antismoking credo: “The introduction of a ban on smoking in public places will undoubtedly encourage people to smoke less” – followed by figures that do not say that both in Scotland and Ireland smoking has picked up to normal levels, and probably even more thanks to contraband, that cannot be quantified in official figures. “In Scotland, smoke-free laws came into effect last year. Tens of thousands of people have given up smoking since.” Yes, but tens of thousands of people have started smoking – thank God – and the absolute number has flexed very little – although one is to admits that idiotic quitting because “it’s the law” or “to fit” always existed and always will; but fortunately they are a small minority.
Now on to the good stuff for last: “So will English smokers behave the same way? The evidence to date suggests maybe not.” And “The group of smokers likely to be least affected by the ban is teenagers”, which gives us high hopes that English teens and adults may be intelligent enough not to believe institutionalized fraud. Hang in there, kiddos: we will break them. The Telegraph’s piece finally reaches the ejaculation of the antitobacco fantasy: “The ultimate example is Bhutan, where the sale of tobacco has been banned outright.” But it does not say that the “ultimate example” of the antitobacco scum did not work as the prohibition is unenforceable and vastly ignored, so people smoke right in the face of prohibition as they should (that’s why the mass-media don’t talk about Bhutan anymore). Antitobacco’s ultimate dream reminds us of the masturbator who asked his hand: “was it nice for you too?”…
