This is what happens when the state deems the vassals unfit to make their own decisions and effectively educate their children. Although this story comes from the Nanny State we call Britian, this sort of 'logic' should sound familiar to us Canadians. It brings to mind the proposed ban on tobacco advertising and displays and also Ralph Klein's mandatory brainwash sessions planned for kindergarten children in Alberta. When there is no incentive and resources left for intelligent people to breed, 'cause a good portion of their income is routed into the trough before it reaches them and given to those who have done nothing to deserve it, a general apathy and dumbing down can be observed in society.
The public health minister Melanie Johnson last night began tightening the screws on fast food companies to end two-for-one burger promotions and incentives aimed at children.As usual, the merchants play into the scam helping to reinforce the agenda, rather than resisting and sticking up for our rights to eat as many big macs as we choose.
The government, in a recent white paper, said it wanted far clearer labelling on food so that consumers could make healthy choices.People like things that are 'bad' for them, often simply because the thing is 'bad'. If ya haven't figured out by now that smoking and eating fast food are not going to lead to good health, then you're just plain stupid. Perhaps the increase in public stupidity is directly correlated with the increased number of public awareness campaigns?
