It seems that 'public health' has spent so long modifying words to avoid justified anger that they're starting to believe their own propaganda.
You see, they don't shame you into eating healthily, they encourage; they don't coerce you into drinking less with tax escalators, they 'nudge'; they don't scaremonger governments to consider fat and fizzy drink taxes, they educate; and they don't force you to quit smoking with hikes in duty, smoking bans, denormalisation etc, they help you.
So when it is suggested they're a bunch of rancid bullies ...
@FergusMason1 Badger & bully? Give me one shred of evidence anyone has done that to you. Whereas your bullying is astonishing @PrimlyStable

None of the obscene tactics employed by the state-funded healthist cartel is 'badgering' or 'bullying', apparently, and Monika is quite offended at the suggestion (even though she admits that smoking bans are a way of forcing you to quit). However, forthright objection to her line of 'work' in small chunks of 140 characters or less is most certainly 'astonishing' bullying.
So, for example, this is not bullying in any way, shape, or form.
THREE residents of a nursing home, all in their 90s and two of them in wheelchairs, are being asked to give up the habit of a lifetime.
All three are being told they have to stop smoking when the ban on cigarettes comes into effect at their nursing home in Co Offaly next week.Nor should public health be ashamed of themselves for this.
Anti-smoking campaigns and laws have turned smokers into a despised underclass, a study by a Department of Health adviser warned yesterday.
It said smokers have come to be seen as disgusting and dirty and are increasingly becoming regarded as outcasts.
The vilification is also stoking up prejudice against the poor because those who are already on low incomes or at a disadvantage are most likely to be smokers, the report by Professor Hilary Graham found.Fortunately, as we see from Monika's self-denial above, their arrogant collective superiority complex shields them from self-doubt while they continue to denormalise, marginalise and - yes - bully those who simply wish to be left alone.
In fact, their strategy to ensure smokers in particular are seen as malodourous; litterers; selfish and thoughtless; unattractive and undesirable housemates; uneducated; a social underclass; addicts; excessive users of public health services; and employer liabilities is considered a huge positive in 'public health' circles.
Anyone who suggests otherwise is just a nasty troll.
@mikakosinska How dare you try and make people healthy!
