Whats That Stink.<quoted text> Governments are corrupt and sell to the highest corporate bidder. Big Tobacco must have been outbid.
Yes. That is exactly what Big Government wants you to believe. It's being promoted by the Government propaganda mill, AKA "the news". Most people just believe what they are told. Few bother to question it. That is why Big Government is able to get away with doing the things it does.
The fact is, though, that since Big Government nationalized Big Tobacco, both Big Government tobacco taxes collected and Big Tobacco profits have soared. "The war against decent tobacco users" has enabled Big Government rulers to impose despotic control over areas that have nothing to do with tobacco. That despotism primarily affects decent non-tobacco users of good will. Clever, eh?
