Aside from our essentially frivolous, naturally perverse, pleasure-seeking, gullible, highly-suggestible, sin-loving, responsibility-shirking, self-destructive Human Nature, we can thank the evil genius EDDIE BERNAYS for this. The thoroughly amoral, unprincpled, utterly self-serving, ruthlessly exploitative Bernays was the Father of Modern Advertising –– one of the great Master Manipulators of all time. He made P.T. Barnum look like a Presbyterian Sunday School Teacher in comparison.

I know we're not supposed to notice much less mention it, but Eddie Bernays just happend to be JEWISH –– as was Karl Marx..

Ding-a-ling! Ding-a-ling! Ding-a-ling! Ding-a-ling! Ding-a-ling! Ding-a-ling!

There goes that damnble TOCSIN yet again.

Did you do this before my commercials post? GREAT MINDS!? :-)
I loved the whole smoking thing...and I believe that smoke filled rooms in Congress are highly underrated; people smoked and talked and hammered things out without media glare.
French cafes were smokey...it was part of the atmosphere I loved. They're not anymore.
See, I fell for the whole thing :-)

My parents were smokers, too. They both quit in the late 60's when the culture turned around and began to discourage the practice.

I was never much of a smoker, although I can and do enjoy the "occasional" cigar.

I'm sure that the obesity epidemic today is a direct result of this sort of "cultural manipulation". We have yet to come out with a "calorie-free" food that "tastes good" to beat tobacco. Although I am tempted to begin "vaping".

The history of smoking and advertising is quite interesting. Marketing a Bohemian brand of cool...
