Life imitating art

H/T Here are three ideas for you….

  • Put all alcohol in plain packaging
  • Ban betting logos on sweatshirts
  • Print health warnings on the actual cigarettes

You might think these have been lifted from the latest indie spoof movie. Think again. These crackpot ideas are actually being put forward, for real, by those who “know best”. You see that is what happens when governments spend millions supporting so-called “charities” and institutions whose raison-d’etre is to come up with ideas that justify their existence (and their next round of funding). As for evidence? Forget it. All you need is to get some of your mates to fall in behind the idea, run a few more “studies”, get public health to back it and Bob’s your uncle, your almost there.

“Future generations will look back in wonder at how so many fruitcakes and monomaniacs came to wield influence in the foul years of the early twenty-first century. Sack the lot of them, abolish their grants, bulldoze their workplaces and pour salt on the land so that nothing ever grows there again.”

    The sooner we stopped calling govt sponsored groups “charities” and prevented groups in receipt of government funding, lobbying government the better. They talk about the crisis in public spending, yet still hand out huge sums to thousands of groups whose main aim is to lobby government for more regulation. It is insanity.
