Everything we do now has to be “evidence based” and SCIENTIFIC.
We do not consider the fact that Science has boobed on many occasions.
Science is “progress” – well no. Not always. In some aspects of life, we are going backwards. Science and the technology that often comes out of it, is producing a world that is sometimes not better, but worse.
We have nuclear bombs – tested, tested, tested, so many times, the whole world has been affected, dismissed/denied by MS (main stream) scientists.
We have global warming – MS science says man made – read “A chance to levy taxes and make other profits”.
We have a plastic problem – non-biodegradable litter everywhere, but especially in the ocean. All our faults, of course. Our plastic shopping bags were free.
We have an air pollution problem – traffic in our towns and cities. MS scientists say our houses are not even safe. Our central heating and hair spray is making us weak and feeble
MS scientists have driven millions of poor people into abject poverty by the Green Revolution. Farmer’s suicide is rampant worldwide.
And there are loads of other unexpected consequences from “progress”.
Public Health runs on “evidence based”. Politicians are impressed and blinded by “evidence based” pronouncements from MS scientists all being funded by groups desiring “evidence based” to be in their favour. So you can’t trust government pronouncements based on “fact”.
But the most distressing backward movement of science and technology is happening right now in the USA. The new regulations against vaping, will stifle it till near death.
For once, there is a much nicer, more pleasurable substitute for smoking cigarettes than sticking plasters and chewing gum or suicide-inducing drugs. New technology has provided smokers with vaping devices far superior to the original “electronic cigarettes”.
Tobacco Control – the industry that provides jobs for thousands, and cushy jobs for many, that has built its prohibition agenda on the lie that nicotine caused cancer, and frightened millions into stopping smoking, and millions – nay billions – to be terrified of the mearest whisp of tobacco smoke, have seen to it, that vaping will be strangulated from the start.
How else would they keep their industry alive, if there weren’t smokers to persecute? Tobacco Control needs smokers.
And Drug companies need to sell their patches, gums and inhalers.
The best way to keep smokers smoking is to stop vaping innovation in its tracks by the new FDA deeming regulations.
As a vaper, watching what has been happening in Tobacco Control science, and how scientists have “fiddled the books”, how Tobacco Control has seeded fear and doubt about vaping, and how the MSM have spread it, and how governments have meddled with legislation, illumination has dawned on me that “evidence based” regulation is not always good. Science sucks, because “evidence” is up for sale to the highest bidder.
