There is an episode of Tales from the Darkside.
Edited on Sat Jan-22-11 09:36 AM by RandomThoughts
It is about a guy imprisoned in a room till he gives up smoking. Then at the end they say that he then has to give up coffee.

That is how things like nanny state occur, and how the puritans happened.

It is not about smoking or drinking coffee, it is about breaking someone, and taking away things till they are 'compliant' to some dark side things. And actually since it is about domination, it would not stop, since it is not about taking from someone but beating them down.

Also why although I have gone periods of my life not drinking and smoking, and I don't even think such things are a good idea for most people, I have never given those things up.

Because if there was a reason to do such a thing, then it should be able to be explained.

Pretty funny show, but it does show that coercion to take away most of the things a person has in life is part of the way the supernatural works, could also be part of 'if something is shaken'

why being shaken should not shake anyone.

On the topic of the clip from Death Race 2000 posted. Some might see the scene where the nurses rolled the old folks into the street, and think of death panels, or going after medicine or health care that they say forgets about the elderly. Could even be a comment that health care has been being scaled back for decades.

That is not what that is about in my view, that is appling that story to some situation, and there are many situations that can be applied to.

Without layers of association, it is simpler, those that try to do harm or leave people out in the streets without caring, have that very thing done to them. It is actually a story of judge how you judge or karma.

On the topic of the multiple attempts to make the US a military state, and all the commercials and even news stories that make a military person seem to be more then a normal person. That is trying to set up the military society, Ancient Roman model, where if you fight for a system, then that system gives you something or some status. It is for perpetuation of the warfare state.
