Can I add a few more reasons why I feel these things are wrong. I live in the US and well, one the top points they use to justify it is....look at
how much it would save us in medical costs. (getting our healthcare industry under control would probably save more, but that is beside the point.)
I think it's a naturally reaction, the more a person is held accountable for the needs of another, the more that they feel they should have some
right to tell them how to behave, what to do, ect......to me, unfortunately, is my basic defination of slavery....we take people, we relocate them to
places where they can't meet their own needs, and then we provide it for them, and somehow in our minds, we begin to think we own them--they become
our slaves. The same lawyers who sunk the tobacco companies then proceeded on to the McDonalds and other fast food resturants......and the fat wars
began. .....look at how much obesity is going to be costing us all in the future. You add to that the "it's their own fault" mentality that is
taking place in the country, where everything just doesn't fit their perfect picture of what life should be, and well, it's why should I to help
them, it's their own fault.
Which leads me to my next objection. How can a society shun the little habits of people, that little stream of tobacco smoke, or that Big Mac, and
yet, then expect these same people to go to work in shops where they are being asked to breath in lead, aluminum, and other heavy metal dust, fumes
from a wide assortment of toxic chemicals to produce all that new wonderful crap that they want.....and well not sound like a bunch of hypocrits?
Which leads me to my third objection......once all the media is played out, it will be easy for the masses of people to look at the sick and homeless
and well, just say it's their fault. they should have ate better, not smoked, ect, ect. Only these other toxic chemicals have the power to destroy
our body functions also, so how can you tell weather is was a bad habit, or his occupation, or maybe it was those pills that the FDA thought was safe
but then turned out not to be.
There's another discussion on these boards titled refugees. When I was reading it all I could think of was how could someone, anyone, just stand
there and watch a child drown. Well, I see all of this as a major push by the government with it's allies in the health feild, media, ect, to
desensitize us and put us in a mental state which will just decide that it is perfectly acceptable to round up our neighbors, our friends, and our
families, since, hey, they must of did something to deserve it, right?
