I regard Tobacco Control as being an army of bullies. And it’s part of an even larger army of bullies known as Public Health. And they spend their lives bullying other people, telling other people how to think and what to do. They are extremely arrogant people. They have contempt for everybody else.
They are all, in short, utter bastards.
But isn’t that the story of all human history? It’s one army of bullying bastards after another. Or it’s one army of bullying bastards fighting another army of bullying bastards.
Bullies are people who have gained the upper hand, and who then use that upper hand to crush those over whom they have gained an advantage. They never let up.
And that’s how it is with Tobacco Control. They never let up. Once they’d driven smokers out of one train carriage, they slowly drove them out of all train carriages. And once they’d driven them out of trains and buses, they drove them out of theatres and cinemas. And once they’d driven them out of theatres and cinemas and art galleries and museums, they started driving them out of bars and restaurants.
Smokers were driven out of hospitals a long time ago. But now they’re being driven out of hospital grounds as well. And they’re now even being driven out of their own homes. Because Tobacco Control never lets up. It never stops. It never says: Enough! It can never get enough.
And smokers retreat. Smokers are defeated. For smokers, the past 50 years has been one long retreat, one long defeat. And many smokers have as much contempt for themselves as the bullies in Tobacco Control have for them. They see themselves as weak-willed addicts, slaves to an addiction, slowly killing themselves.
Yet the bullies in Tobacco Control can only advance because the smokers are retreating. Meeting no resistance, they press on quickly to capture even more ground. That’s how armies advance.
Tobacco Control is organised and centralised and well-funded. Smokers are none of these. And they are always less and less well-funded because Tobacco Control is also robbing them. Tobacco Control is an army of thieves.
It might be said that these days all politics is large scale bullying. Political correctness is large scale bullying. Global warming alarmism is also large scale bullying. People are made to feel ashamed of themselves for being prosperous and driving around in cars, polluting the world with carbon dioxide.
White people are now being made to feel ashamed. Christians are made to feel shame.
The bullies routinely get children to do their fighting. The Extinction Rebellion is the latest example of this:
Dear Boris Johnson, using your gigantic platform to moan about kids like me won’t stop us fighting climate change.
Our opinions are more important than yours. You’ve proven you can’t be trusted with our future.
“Our opinions are more important than yours.” What conceit! What arrogance!
And who’s Greta Thunberg?
Party leaders and senior politicians jumped at the chance to meet schoolgirl environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg this week, the spiritual leader of the movement which has worked to shut down London’s public transport and main airport with protests that led to over 1,000 arrests.
She’s another little bullying bastard.
It’s not just smokers who are being bullied these days. Everybody is being bullied. It’s non-stop, 24-hour, wall-to-wall bullying.
Things are coming to a head.
