Slightly off topic, but nonetheless worthy of a blog post.
While away camping this past weekend, I had the pleasure of reading Ezra Levant's "The War on Fun".
It is a short read (142 pages), but it is jam-packed with tales of how the "anti's" - those people who want to see all adults treated like children - fresh off their win against "big tobacco" are now setting their sights on "big food" (McDonalds), "Detroit" (SUV's), and "big beer" (Miller, et al).
Rather than allowing individuals to make consumer choices for themselves, these busybodies are trying to have governments and juries make the decisions for us.
It also discusses how individuals are being made to feel like victims for their own bad choices (eg. you didn't want to eat those three Big Mac's, but McDonalds brainwashed you to do it).
Of course, Mr. Levant puts it much more eloquently in his book.
It's chock full of interesting stats, shocking tales and some scary hidden truths.
Anyone worried about losing their right to choose should pick it up, it's a great read.
