AFP: Be happy, no butts, Bhutan's smokers told

Thanks to Ann Welch for posting this on Facebook-

We are doing this for the good health and well-being of our people..

Be very afraid if anyone (be it a politician, a bureaucrat, or a neighbor) who utters these words to you. The term "for your own good", or in this case "for your own health", ultimately translates into this: "If you don't do what we say, we are going to take everything (your business, your dignity, your home, your right to assemble, your right to free speech, etc...) and make your life as miserable as possible until you conform to our view of what is needed to construct the ultimate utopian society. ..and if that doesn't work, we'll take what's left of your humanity like a thief in the night that harbors no remorse (or conscience) for playing the role of a thieving perpetrator, for this thief is protected by the "law".
