I would like to choose whether to were a crash helmet or a seat belt. I would like to smoke without having people telling me how bad it is for me. If non-smokers don’t like it then they don’t have to be around me.
Take this stupid law there trying to bring in the UK BANNING smoking in pubs and clubs. This is a real taking of freedom. What they would be better of doing is simply allowing the bars and clubs to decide for themselves but to ban it out right is total arrogance, a total taking of people’s rights.
There is no real freedom.
Maybe out in the remote were law and government don’t matter, were they don’t care about, you can feel freedom, but within society there is none, only an illusion with which some like to believe.
