DYepesUmm lets see, the drugs destroy your lung capacity, your physical endurance, can alter your cellular composition over time causing
cancers, and even your mental capacity. So these things physically and mentally destroy your body... I think that qualifies as filth. Might as well be
drinking poison, which is what one would do with alcohol.
Oxygen is pretty nasty as well. Too much of it can damage cellular mitochondria and may be linked to parkinsons.
Drinking too much water can cause electrolytic imbalance and can kill you.
Non-ergonomic keyboards can cause carpal tunnel.
By your logic, all of the above qualify as "filth".
I smoke a cigar on occasion. I smoke it for the effect of the nicotine. I enjoy it. As there is no way my taking that endulgance can harm another
human being, I have every right to it. You
have zero right to determine that I do not have that freedom, based on your opinion that it is
The real problem is addiction. Too much of anything
can kill you. Consuming tobacco in moderation will not do any of what you have stated as
your argument for "filth". Constant repeated exposure, like anything else, will.
The best way to save society from the filth that destroys their bodies, mind and spirit is to destroy that filth and be sure they do not have to be
exposed to it.
So instead of shoving your nose into other people's lives and saying they can't do this and can't do that, how about educate them on why they
do this or that? Let people make their own decisions and live their own lives.
