Mikhail Leontyev: Body - tobacco

We used on the cover the image of the respected Gennady Grigorievich Onishchenko - Chief Medical Officer - not so much due to his growing personal danger (which even Duma deputies noticed now), but rather because this image most clearly and accurately embodies the last trends in Russian politics.

The opinion is spreading before our eyes that, as a result of various toughening and invasion of legislation, Russia becomes almost a totalitarian state in the moral and ethical sphere and is about to fall into the Middle Ages. It is obvious to any unbiased observer that this is utter nonsense. Both the state of society, and the state of the state and its institutions absolutely exclude any “toughening” that is significantly tangible at the household level. Even if the mentioned law-making and the truth would contain any signs of a real tightening. It is impossible to tighten the liquid jelly. The matter is much worse: literally before our eyes, the whole process of state-building, which has noticeably intensified recently, covers an increasingly dense veil of paranoia and idiocy. It seems that someone specifically wants to make senseless and caricature the whole, even quite rational, activity of the current government.

The starting point, perhaps, can be called the abolition of the ppm, that is, the allowed blood alcohol limit for drivers. We will not repeat the arguments of kefir, kvass and autogenic alcohol that have not been refuted by anyone. One thing is certain: a person with these permissible ppm is certainly not drunk. From the point of view of a normal person. From the point of view of the manic fighter for sobriety mentioned Onishchenko, a person who drank any dose of alcohol is drunk for a month, and a person who drank once a year, the next eleven months may not be drunk, but should be considered a drinker. When such concepts form the basis of regulation, this can be regarded solely as a mockery. Not to mention that this concept completely excludes the possibility of harsh punishment for really drunk drivers. It is characteristic that attempts at a completely official level to return the situation from a manic to a normal plane did not have success.

The next step in the chosen direction was the introduction of the annual time. I remember that it was motivated by the problems of adaptation of people and cows, who allegedly could not understand when to milk them. After the blessing was not appreciated even by the happy cows, attempts were made to return time to its natural state. However, for some reason, they again did not result in any result.

In the current political season, even a certain fashion for idiocy suddenly appeared. Lawmaking has acquired a reflex character. The creators simply read a summary of the incidents and initiate tightening prohibiting measures for each. The fashion for idiocy leaves an imprint on everything, in principle, sound actions, be it a law on the protection of the feelings of believers, control over criminal activities on the Internet, etc.

However, compulsory labeling of information products by age restrictions became the height of insanity. This seemingly harmless and harmless event with completely ridiculous and absurd designations on old cartoons and Soviet film classics, on concert posters of classical music, flickering daily and every minute in front of the eyes of the population, gives reality a smack of light but constant idiocy. The easiest way to make sense news a program? It’s pointless to stick an age restriction on it. At least 15+, at least 90–. In this atmosphere, any phenomena of reality, minor incidents and domestic incidents, acquire new and far-reaching meanings. What is the campaign to combat the Dagestan-Azerbaijani wedding shooting in the air? Domestic hooliganism takes on the size of almost an inter-civilizational conflict. And then the lawyer of the deceased Agafonov in the Mirzaev case, in response to a legally correct sentence, states that this, they say, is a signal that now Russian guys can be killed with impunity. I wonder how the defense line would be built, if Agafonov were, for example, a Jew? Or an Armenian? Though the Zulus? It was worth the “lawyer of the year” psychopath Vinogradov to carry out a massacre in the office, immediately followed the initiative to strengthen control over the legal weapons. Comrades do not know that the murderer, even if he is a psychopath, absolutely useless to legalize their weapons. Just as it is no secret that getting the left barrel in Russia is not a big problem. A legal weapon is needed just for those who are going to use it in self-defense. Including from a psychopath like Vinogradov.

The anti-tobacco bill is in this series separately. More precisely, it stands a separate boulder. To repeat: we have nothing against sensible sound measures to limit the spread of smoking, especially among children, and to protect those who really want it from the unpleasant effects of tobacco. However, a legislative repressive ban on smoking by smokers where it does not violate anybody’s rights is an unacceptable and unacceptable interference with a person’s personal space. To which no one and no one gave the right. This is a precedent, and extremely dangerous, the possibility of such intervention on all other occasions and grounds. As for the content of the anti-smoking project, it will be more detailed here. The points.

The first. In its current form, the project is a tribute to the Western politically correct fashion. Actually, the reason for the revitalization of activities in this direction was Russia's accession to the WHO convention on tobacco control. It is no secret that WHO, an organization under the complete control of a powerful pharmaceutical lobby (which is certainly more powerful than a tobacco one), systematically organizes senseless and scientifically illiterate campaigns about pseudoepidemias, avian and swine flu, and mad cow disease. multi-billion sums and, accordingly, the same profits are derived to the sponsors of WHO. The Russian anti-tobacco law was written by the hands of these foreign lobbyists specifically for the Bloomberg Foundation’s money, and there is no reason to exclude that it is progressing in much the same way.

The second. Statistics - first of all, statistics of the same WHO, to which fighters with smoking operate, known figures of death rates from smoking are an absolute ungrounded falsification. Such statistics simply can not be: there is not a single death certificate, where in the column "cause of death" would be smoking. No one claims that smoking is beneficial. But when a notorious lie is cited as evidence, should this raise any questions? The same nonsense from a scientific point of view is the harm of so-called passive smoking. It is possible to agree that foreign smoking is unpleasant for many people, and definitely harmful for some patients with lung diseases or allergies. But paranoid calculations about the dangers of passive smoking, which lie at the base of draconian prohibitions, are not based on anything other than paranoia itself.

Third. The law is economically dangerous. The common place is that it creates problems of survival for small outlets. And this is quite a significant part of our aspiring small business. A sharp inadequate increase in excise taxes is just as dangerous as their underreporting. By the way, in normal economies, harmful human habits, such as smoking, alcohol, or, for example, gambling, which are unrealistic and counterproductive to eliminate bans, serve as a source of budget replenishment. This, in fact, is the genetic essence of excise.

Fourth. Russia is a smoking country. We have most adults smoke, whether someone likes it or not. And people will not be able to quickly abandon this habit, and many will not want to. Are we missing tobacco riots? In general, the escalation of material repression, fines, excise taxes in a socially, to put it mildly, heterogeneous country is the best way to update this “heterogeneity”. In the form of social conflict.

The fifth. A complete ban on smoking in all modes of transport, including long-distance vessels, makes the authors of the law people who suffer from sadistic hatred of smokers. In many points, this is not a law on combating smoking, but on combating a hateful, vile, smelly smoker. If you look at the famous pictures on the packs, it becomes clear with what sadistic pleasure the author invented it all. In the current political correct society, it is indecent, and it is technically impossible to hate the Negroes, Jews, Caucasians, even Russians in public and in law. All this unrealized hatred can be sublimated and turned into a stinking smoker.

The sixth. This is the densest plaque of paranoia that gives out the motives and intentions of the authors. When people forbid tobacco not only to smoke, but also to chew and sniff. When the hookah is subjected to repression, which by definition does not give way to tobacco smoke. When the law forces to hide tobacco under the counter and issue it only at the insistent request of the buyer, when you have to run off the 10 meters from the station door, when you want to cut out smoking heroes from film classics, it means that people hate tobacco as a product. With the same passion you can hate milk and semolina. I would like to see the relevant bills.

The point is not specifically in tobacco, not in promille and not in them. Notice, all these idiotic initiatives do not seem to affect the main substantive aspects of politics and economics. But they are totally domestic. They touch everyone every minute. They penetrate and fill the current life of each person. Fill with this very touch of idiocy. And fill the top - the legislator. It discredits, devalues, turns the state itself and its institutions into an indecent anecdote. This is really, without exaggeration, very dangerous.

As for the direct and obvious threat from Gennady Grigorievich Onishchenko. We wrote about this exactly three years ago (see 10 No. from 16.11.2009). I will quote myself beloved: “Gennady Onishchenko is a Russian socio-political phenomenon. This is an experiment - what a dedicated, extremely able-bodied ideological maniac can achieve. ” During this time, the head sanitary department has noticeably advanced. Today, he directly threatens to dissolve parliament in the event of a refusal to adopt a manic anti-tobacco law. Further - more: Onishchenko demanded to protect children from the church, because there is unhygienic, the water in the font is not boiled and the icons are not disinfected. Not only is communion with wine! At the same time, he is a cunning beast who spoke separately about Islam, in the sense that he has no complaints about Muslims. I would like to see what would happen if he formulated such claims. Therefore, it does not formulate. In fact, Onishchenko has the formal authority to take full control of power in Russia. These powers are sanitary and hygienic. Moreover, unlike many others, he even has an idea. True, it is also sanitary. But, as we wrote three years ago, “according to the degree of abstract humanism, it has almost no equal. And do not be surprised if Gennady Grigorievich takes power and declares the dictatorship of clean hands. And no one will stop him. ”

So, three years later, with a much smaller share of humor, I state: in an atmosphere of light paranoia that envelops the process of state-building, the chances of Mr. Onishchenko are growing. The experiment continues. In humans.

          I don’t smoke, but I’m against this law, because prohibitions never decide anything at all and it’s unlikely to be decided. It is easier to ban than to conduct propaganda and educational work. Cultivating a healthy lifestyle is where all the efforts should be directed. And this law is just an excuse for the problem, i.e. a rag screen, and as Zadornov used to say, "they made the event"

Look back at the USSR - "non-traditional" sex orientation, drug addiction, prostitution, parasitism, homeless people, street children, etc., all this was banned. And already on top of the ban, propaganda and education was carried out (starting from kindergarten age) - it was very effective!

              - you twist something, dear. And to the detriment of common sense. There was an article for sodomy, but I don't remember its application at all. Neither public nor among acquaintances. Moreover, in my presence one high-ranking official was "burned" on this inclination in the central apparatus of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, when Plataev was still the Minister of Internal Affairs of the Kaz SSR - and nothing, they flooded the party and a comradely or officer's court, I don't remember, but not that in prison - left at work! So your ban was a fiction, and this article of the USSR Criminal Code is, in fact, legally dead.
              You'd better remember the ban on drinking from Ligachev! That was the song! How did the so-called so-called, who were in poverty before that, flourished. "shanghai", low-rise building areas. That's for this
              Quote: Homo
              - it was very effective!
              - here I agree with you, dear.
              I am generally against prohibitions. This is a disgusting practice. There is a ban on "drinking" - it means that someday there will be a ban on "living." If there are undesirable phenomena, they must be dealt with intelligently, which implies
              a) the high professionalism of employees and managers in charge of this problem of state departments;
              b) sufficient development and complexity of the structure of state bodies and
              structures of government. This development and complexity involves synergistic (mutually agreed) actions of various and related departments in solving the problem. To illustrate, when carrying out, say, an anti-alcohol company with NON-PROTECTIVE MEASURES, simultaneously with the introduction of the same excise tax, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the fiscal authorities should work in an agreed mode by the Ministry of Mass Media - organizing mass propaganda and Culture Ministers - organizing the same propaganda through the mouths of very popular people. This is an illustration, just an example of synergy, of course, these measures are not enough, there should be a bunch, but AGREED.
              So far, I have not seen evidence of the presence in state institutions of either the first, or even the second point, either in the authorities of Russia, or in the bodies of the more so in Kazakhstan. Wasserman in the next branch walked hard through the civil servants of Moldova, alas, I have to state that civil servants deserve such an assessment ALL WITHOUT EXCLUSION of post-Soviet states. The only difference is that someone has a clinical picture, and someone else has a latent one.
              And prohibitions are a diagnosis. A very good diagnosis of professionalism of power. And very good diagnosis to those who support such idiotic initiatives of power.

        You're not right ! This is not meant in terms of promotion and prohibition, but in terms of general thought. Smoking has always been fought, but in different ways. In the USSR, they also fought against smoking by means of posters calling to quit smoking and showing the dangers of smoking, the release of short films and "Wick" (whoever remembers "Wick" should remember the video where the names of cigarettes were changed, such as: "Java" into "Ulcer", "Astra "to Asthma, etc.). I myself am a former smoker (I have smoked for more than forty years, and now I have quit "Thank God!"), But I am against this law, which supposedly should reduce the number of smokers and protect non-smokers from smokers. We live in Russia, where every action of the authorities leads to opposition by the people, Gorbachev forced us to stop drinking, and we began to drive more moonshine and drink surrogates, and in this case the people will find an antidote. Will begin to grow tobacco in summer cottages and household plots. Russian people are a lot of inventions. You cannot force a person to quit smoking by prohibitions alone. It is necessary to give a person an incentive, but there is none. By the way, in many companies and factories those who quit smoking are rewarded and salaries raised. This is the incentive. Our power always goes from one extreme to another, like an old senile.

If no one objected, they smoked right in the compartment, sometimes they went out into the corridor (not into the vestibule), there were also ashtrays in front of each compartment. It didn’t really affect the health of the people, probably. But it's not about smoking, it's about principle - 1. "tolerant" impose new objects of hatred on us, distracting from such problems as the spread of "homophilia", the imposition of juvenile justice, etc .; 2. Slowly legalizes interference in personal life down to everyday trifles - this is a direct path to "manual control", ie. to veiled slavery!

He is the only one among this Caudla in the Duma who cares about the health of the nation and is not afraid to make loud statements, and these upstarts who lobby the interests of transnational corporations are promoting poison and poison for OUR CHILDREN !! THINK! WE HURT OURSELF FOR OUR MONEY! Can't you people see the obvious !? I do not deny that Onishchenko could have gone too far with Borjomi, but you yourself must understand that there is an element of politics here and, unlike our Ministry of Foreign Affairs, its economic levers are much more effective than the timid statements of our diplomats, which the whole of Europe and the State Department laugh at!

    P.S. I have already commented on a similar article and once again I recall that smokers behave towards non-smokers in the ranks of which I am very disgusting! Smokers normally smoke and throw a cigarette butt, or even the contents of the ashtray from the car window onto the roadway, in the porch, in the underpasses, in the subway halls, in the courtyard, at the porch, in the playground, etc.! It is not possible to be in public places, kids, expectant mothers will tar so that tears come from the eyes and then wonder where the ancology is from! It is impossible to breathe normally in the city, but here are these bydlyaks who poison themselves, others and crap! Where a smoker smokes, everything will surely be charred, burned, it is impossible to breathe, and our children remember, take an example from us from their parents and what they see daily ?!

        Just one example for Mr. Onishchenko, which is really NOT FIGHTED:
        "Dioxin and a large group of dioxin-like substances - these are substances (xenobiotics) that are alien to living organisms and enter into animate and inanimate nature with products or waste from numerous technologies. dioxin toxicity is higher or at least comparable to the toxicity of anticholinesterase toxic agents such as herd, sarin, soman and VX. Thus, the assertion that dioxin is the most toxic of the substances synthesized by man, in principle, cannot be considered an exaggeration of enthusiastic researchers or journalists, although, as already mentioned, there are more toxic compounds of this class. Dioxin-containing products of various industries, appearing in the practical turn of civilization, are diverse: Car exhaust - An example of the use of fuel, accompanied by the appearance in the combustion process of a diffuse source of dioxins. Dioxins found in filter (including filters for coffee and tea) and wrapping paper, paper napkins, baby diapers, cosmetic fabrics, etc. PCDD and PCDF are especially high in recycled paper. As far back as 1980, it was indicated that a serious source of dioxin neoplasm in plumbing communications could become drinking water disinfection process by treating it with molecular chlorine. In the air of residential premises, dioxins come from burning in house stoves. wood, coal, fuel oil, especially when burning polyvinyl chloride and plastics (e.g. in a landfill). In emissions of power plantsworking on coal, 1 pg of TCDD / kg and 8 pg of TCDF / kg of ash are formed. An additional source of airborne dioxin pollution is wood products, pretreated with polychlorinated biphenyls. From food 50% of dioxins are supplied with meat, 27% - with milk, 10% - with fish and 11% - with other foods. It was established that the level of dioxins in milk is 40-200 times higher than in the tissues of the body. Calculations show that from 1 liter of milk, the body receives a 12-fold higher dose of PCDD than due to inhaled air in one day. Significant amounts of dioxins may come from root crops (potatoes, carrots, beets, etc.), because most of them are delayed in the root systems of plants and only 10% - in the ground parts.
        It is easy to fight smoking and everyone can see the semblance of concern for health, and a much more serious danger is hushed up - with all products we receive huge doses of orange-type substances used in Vietnam as defoliants. Here I would show concern ...

World statistics say that fast food is evil (look at the pictures of overweight children, victims of fast food), and GMO, and disgusting quality products on store shelves (I'm not talking about re-gluing labels, and about restoring spoiled products). And an alcoholic surrogate, and many hours of corks that stand and smoke, and we walk past and breathe it. A leftist system of materials (with phenol and other byaka). Houses under construction near power lines, spontaneous dumps. Does all of the above contribute to the health of the nation? So I understand you. To the question to Mr. Onishchenko: Do ​​your children eat burgers, since you say they do no harm? He lowered his eyes and said no, we eat healthy food. And all the rest means you can vparivat so it turns out. So you are talking nonsense, and complete.

      It seems to me, Mr. Severyanin, reading your angry lines in the direction of smokers, you do not hate them so much, but all the inhabitants of our vast Russia, because all the arguments that you give (smoke and throw a cigarette butt, in the porch, in the underpasses, in the lobby subway, in his yard, at the entrance, de smoker smokes, be sure everything will be draped charred) it is a matter of education and culture. Therefore, not with prohibitions and punitive laws, but only with the education of culture in every citizen, we can get rid of tobacco and dirt in cities and towns.
      And regarding "It is impossible to breathe normally in the city" I advise you to pay attention to industrial and transport emissions, to smoke from the pipes of boiler houses and ordinary houses. And in this mass of all emissions, tobacco smoke occupies a negligible percentage.

        Eustace, the flag in your hands! If you are so cultural then think of a way to teach your fellow citizens not to smoke (you or cultural smokers will be told where to go at best, or they will simply scratch their turnips uncultivated). And it’s funny to hear from you a modern person an example about boiler pipes, etc. the days of coal industrialization are long gone. I agree with examples of car exhausts, but this is a problem of megacities and it will be gradually solved with the use of high technologies, but even high technologies cannot do anything with tobacco smoke! And do not compare without exception all the inhabitants of our vast Russia with smokers; believe me, there are also cultural people who care about the environmental problem and the health of the younger generation. hi

          There are also cultural people among smokers who do not allow to throw cigarette butts past the urn and spit. But even among non-smokers there are those who allow themselves to throw wrappers, chewing gum and other garbage right on the street.
          So I repeat, this question lies in the field of education and culture.

        And you wanted him to admit on TV that he is a kept woman in the tobacco lobby. As well as other interested organizations. Type of edra. This mouth foam tip guarded Serdyukov and Serdyukovschina. I myself remember how on the radio he and a couple of some magazines discussed the correctness of the reform of divisions into brigades. According to the NATO model. (I personally undertake to discuss things that I am familiar with by the type of professional activity.) And here are people who have nothing to do with the army. Not even serving a single day. They say with aplomb - the Soviet military organization is a scoop. Well, this is a brief squeeze from their verbal flow.
        And on Onishchenko, real persecution is open. Who only from zhurnalyug and deputies did not respond about him as an idiot. The same leont demanded a certificate from the fool from Onishchenko many times. In absentia, the truth. On the air.

      Advocates of the law, answer the question: who and how will monitor compliance with the law?

You can’t put a policeman to every shop. And there are a lot of such locks in the law. Take the same ban on smoking on long-distance vessels. Who will stop smoking on deck? Team members (often smokers themselves)? And how to stop? Will they be given the rights of administrative bodies with the right to impose a fine?

Remember that until a fine was imposed for an unfastened belt of 500 r. everyone went and neighing those who fastened! And in the event of an accident at a speed of more than 60 km per hour, a projectile flew through the windshield and for no reason was not in the house, what’s for their own good (Security)! The same thing with the law! Yes, it’s tough, but tough with respect to those who didn’t care about the health of those citizens who, because of their upbringing, culture and morality, didn’t choose this POISONING smoking and drinking life and I agree with those who write that if you drink, you want to smoke and vice versa! So there are just two scales on one health and culture, and on the other, smoking, drinking and boiling! So choose on which scale you are!

As stated in the article above, the well-known smoking deaths are absolute falsifications based on nothing. Such statistics simply cannot exist: there is not a single death certificate where smoking should be in the column “cause of death”. No one claims smoking is good. But when a deliberate lie is given as evidence. 2. In the history of the state there has already been a struggle against drunkenness, the results: ruined vineyards (loss of jobs), an increased number of deaths from poisoning, home brewing (that is, the absence of excise tax and budget replenishment), etc. etc. 3 God forbid !!! but at the start of the war 90% .4 will increase smuggling (again budget loss) and so on ad infinitum, SIMPLY THE REASON TO ELIMINATE THAN TO SOLVE IT, all the same applies to Demography, Level of Life, Price for Housing and Gasoline.

      To deny that smoking increases the mortality rate of a population and reduces the life expectancy of an individual is foolish. Excuse me.

      In the United States, Prohibition was 18 (!!!) years. Are the Yankees - so stupid - that after a year, two, three did not see that the dry law is bad and did not quickly abandon it. And they pressed it for 18 years !!!. So far they have not received the desired result - namely, the population that has learned to ferment with and without it.

    What does the personality have to do with it? Why emotion? When there is a simple glance, it’s the answer. Look at the essence of the situation, not at the wrapper. Anyone who does not smoke or smoker understands perfectly well, especially on his last deathbed. That tobacco is a drug. A plant substance that has no tangible positive effects on the body. .But the effects of destruction, slow self-destruction abound. Ask every smoker with experience, everyone will answer - "I want to quit", "I smoke, but less." Arguments to quit not only their health, but also such as "a bad example to their children." And it is true that prohibitions cannot eradicate this, absolutely! Only by increasing the culture of society, your culture, you can get rid of this dependence. But this is not a one-day occupation.
    Begin with yourself!

      Well right, that threw. And at one time I had the strength not to succumb to these pontic stains, they say try, all the boys smoke, etc. etc. This does not mean that I didn’t try, it’s a hookah or a pipe when I’m on vacation and I’ll raise it up, but I tried it almost at the time when I was definitely aware that it would not grow into my habit and I tried just real tobacco and not chemistry because even by smell I understand that one big difference is different. And for me this has already turned out not to be addictive: 1-2 times a year and not chemistry, but a natural product and not so as not to freak out if you do not smoke, but to supplement the taste sensations since they are still present in non smokers. But after all, not all of them may not succumb to the mass pressure of those around them in their youth, telling me I don’t give a damn about show-offs, I will not smoke. But these strict laws will give the effect of reducing the coolness of smoking, because now basically young people hang out not in the yards but in various institutions: clubs, discotheques ... and if they forbid smoking there, they don’t smoke cigarettes in the corner under the fence it will look so attractive, because in principle it’s not forbidden to smoke, just go out into that sump and that’s all, and it’s not on a soft sofa with your legs crossed. Yes, I understand that the current smokers will not quit smoking for the most part, but if the number of young people involved in this matter is reduced, especially the female sex, is this not the main thing that the PATRIOTS of their homeland should understand. And it turns out I’m a PATRIOT, but my pacifier for the sake of the Motherland still does not touch.

    They continue to poke Russian society on all fronts ... Separation is under way on ethnic and religious grounds, on sexual orientation, while pederasts are equated with normal people, women are set on men, and men are set on women, people are set on law enforcement agencies, demanding that this observance of order in the country .... They knocked the whole country .. Now it remains only to push the foreheads of the patriotic part of the population, smashing them into smokers, drinkers and absolute teetotalers .... The country does not need sensible patriotic-minded citizens, they have many problems, but non-smokers and non-drinkers are quite happy with them ... I agree that it is necessary to fight smoking among young people, but what about those who have smoked all their lives? With those who sat in the trenches with a cigarette in their teeth, calming their nerves and thinking each time that this was his last puff? What about those who started smoking when they found in a cigarette, albeit temporary, but salvation from all the shocks that officials bring us from the government? Personally, I take a cigarette when I see Medvedev, Chubais, Gorbachev on TV, parades of pederasts and other wise men instilling us their will .... And I can not do anything about it ... Protect us from irritants of our consciousness and very many slowly they will abandon this habit .. But they will abandon it themselves, and not because they were forced to ... Young people cannot be forced either, they perceive everything with hostility, but work with them must be done, providing an alternative to smoking, alcohol and drug addiction. .. Adopting such a law is not an option, it will only further fragment our society, which is very beneficial for the adherents of Western ideology, whose principle is: Divide and Conquer, as relevant as ever in their circles ....

      But seriously, in our country one of the lowest excise taxes on tobacco in the world. There is a proven practice pattern: increasing excise taxes - reducing the number of smokers. Take a look outside. Smoke 15-year-old boys, girls smoke. Cigarettes are too cheap. It should not be so. Onishchenko is right.

    Another article by the author is a rare example of Edro hypocrisy.
    "We didn't have enough tobacco riots?"
    Do not rock the yacht (Abramovich). After all, we are so good and comfortable. Profits from the sale of everything and everything (including tobacco) flow in a river. And you smoke in three throats, drink cheap vodka, and even better cheesecake (just 20 rubles per bottle). Drink cocktails that are banned worldwide. See home2 and football-russia-forward. What else is needed?

    And further:
    "In general, the escalation of material repressions, fines, and excise taxes in a socially, to put it mildly, heterogeneous country is the best way to actualize this" heterogeneity ". In the form of a social conflict."

    That is, when they raise housing prices by 1000 rubles per month - this is not an escalation of material repression. When liquidating free medicine is not the way to social conflict.

    Maybe it’s better to broadcast about shale gas? AND?

    Something, somehow wrong, it seems to me that collective thought is moving.
    The point is not the struggle for healthy lifestyle, the point is the stupidity of the law.
    Teenagers smoke here, but how do they do it? Sale is prohibited until the age of 18, not their parents buy it! There is already a ban, and instead of focusing on its implementation, they come up with some kind of crap. What is the problem with smoking in restaurants and cafes? For a long time there are separate places for smokers and non-smokers, what is the problem then? How can a smoking ban on a ship be implemented at sea? Throw overboard smoker? It’s not difficult to organize a smoking area where the smoker will not bother anyone!
    Not uncles, Leontyev is right here, a base is being created for a bunch of minor conflicts that we do not need. And in the asset, as with the police in the broth, the broth from cooking eggs.

    I do not smoke or smoke. I am neutral towards smokers. Due to the presence of allergies, getting into a room where there is a smell of smoke, a severe runny nose begins.
    Moreover, separate halls do not change anything - the air still circulates the general.
    In no way encroaching on the right of smokers to smoke, I want to note that recently it has become easier to live.

    I DO NOT NEED LA-LA before my eyes, thousands of hectares of vineyards were destroyed; whole collective and state farms remained unemployed, because on such soil vegetables and fruits would not give a normal harvest, but literally six months later, royal alcohol appeared and people began to die, and you were at war , in order to argue whether tobacco is needed there or not, yes, this puff seems to be the last and wonderful communication between people, as well as 50 grams, well, about smuggling, an example from Latvia (special with a small letter) goes to Kaliningrad, gasoline and cigarettes buy and I will surprise you "marlboro" in latvia 124 rubles, and in Kaliningrad 60 as in advertising feel the difference and another example of a utility payment for an apartment in Berlin (140 square meters) -120 euros and in Tyumen (44 square meters) -140 euros., price 1 liter of gasoline in the UAE for 8 years unchanged - 9 rubles, Russia-31 rubles because we have no oil, as well as gas, land, electricity and everything else - but there is a handful in power that, apart from their loved ones and hangers-on, is nobody and nothing sees.

      Yes, I told you about the vineyards and didn’t sing here la la. I told you that there is no tobacco in cigarettes, so people will probably not mow and plant a samosad because the chemistry will be expensive, but its natural from the garden is cheaper.
      And this extravaganza, with the departure from the main point, were you ... the point is that war is the most terrible thing that can happen, and not that it will limit access to smoking, and the technology is not great so as not to provide this rubbish all who want, in which case, but to fence off children from drawing into this habit is important.
      At the expense of counter-gang, do you happen to trade in the cigars yourself in Kalina on the border? Well, the prices in Latvia and in Russia will be equal, and what will the contraband come from? Obviously, all of Russia will not be dragged into Europe for cigars, especially the same children, and the domestic price will not be cheaper from this smuggling.
      As for gasoline, it is one of the lowest in Russia in cost, but before you compare it with Saudis or Venezuela, first compare how much they produce this oil per capita, then you can discuss prices in Russia.

Judges and scum prosecutors spread fear among us. It’s a pancake, pedophids around which you’ll get horseradish, juvenile justice, murders unpunished from traumatism, cops drunk at the wheel who kill women with children without an answer, then these faces snickering from a bureaucratic clique that don’t do anything at all, and now , then drunk, you can kill a person and get off with one year in jail?

    Watching what is happening marvel at the irrationality of what is happening. And most importantly: all the idiocy of the situation is deliberately pulled into the light and strengthened by small, not always clearly defined actions. This confrontation intensified after the advent of GDP and increased confrontation between power groups. We noticed how many laws that excite society and apply to all ordinary people without exception have been adopted recently. I am afraid that we are being intensely prepared for a social internal explosion. Well, in whose interests is it, I think it is not necessary to explain. Sincerely.

    Prohibitions do not really achieve anything "forbidden fruit is sweet". For example, advertising of cigarettes in Ukraine was banned, alcohol is advertised only after midnight, and then as a trademark, beer cannot be drunk on the street, at least so that the police do not see it, so they sell beer in a paper bag - people still drink on the street, especially students. Profanity is solid.
    On packs of cigarettes it is necessary to place all sorts of pictures from the medicine of the consequences of smoking, except for the traditional inscription "smoking is harmful to your health", etc. I myself quit smoking and, to be honest, I do not like it when people smoke nearby. It is necessary for smokers to allocate separate places for smoking and so that they do not smoke in any case in the presence of children - children want to look more grown up - so they take a bad example from adults.

    I read the comments and understand that it’s really easier for people to live in their minks, smoke, hoot, get angry and understand that they have already smoked their lives, and others will take care of themselves!
    I also agree with such statements that promiscuity, permissiveness and the general availability of tobacco-containing products throughout our beloved mother Russia have brought to such a life. But provocateurs appear who take the subject of discussion off their rails and begin to rant on other abstract topics: power, government, the Pope, and of course Onishchenko, who is a pancake poisoning all of Russia with a specialist, and Russia still takes a pancake and poison itself! And "PIPLE HAVE"
    In general, imagine this situation in two parallel worlds:
    One world has everything cheap tobacco, alcohol, accessibility! People who are already addicted to nicotine and alcohol, they just physically cannot get rid of bad habits, but they entertain themselves with the illusion that this is the last time and tomorrow I will give up and so on until my health says "Sorry, dear, but deceiving yourself is already useless and being treated by the way, too, "In this world where all the extremes have been reached, it is proposed a way out, start all over again and try on a national scale all together to take hold of the head and start fighting what you could not do on your own! For the future of your children, for your health, for a healthy nation !!
    In another world, people grow up in a healthy society from childhood, they scornfully look at tobacco on display cases and alcohol, the prices of which are such that you need to think whether it is worth poisoning yourself for your own money, while in society there is an active social propaganda of a healthy image of life! Children who grow up in a family in which there is no smoking father or mother do not show interest in bad habits, they can safely live to a conscious age and make a choice! In such a society, if you went out for a walk with a child and sat down on a bench in the park, it would be wild to sit next to you on a bench and tighten a cigarette under a beer, as people who have not yet been clouded should have a reason to go and conscience shouts that you don’t want it right smoke get away so far that no one sees you! It's like a pee! You will not write or shit at all? Of course not, because neither you nor the more so under the noses of whom you will do it, you will not like it and you will be CONDEMNED!
    And now the bottom line: in a society in which bad habits are not only not condemned, but even elevated to the rank of completely normal and natural, it will never be good! Because such a society has deceived itself and allowed it to be enslaved by those who raise their business on the bones of people! And if a person alone cannot fight the imposed bondage, then let him at least not interfere with resisting this evil!
    P.S. to the point of absurdity you can bring any idea and turn white into black! Therefore, I ask you, let's not turn white into black and quietly admit to ourselves that many smokers of our country alas have passed the point of no return, have resigned themselves and must understand that the Law is for all not only smokers but also for those who do not smoke but are ready to give in on the advertising, weak and other influence of the tobacco lobby and join the ranks of addicts sponsoring the killers of our future generation!
