State Sponsored Abuse

Look at what has become of the anti-smoker movement in Australia:

Angry pedestrian screams at woman for smoking in Martin Place

The man in the video is obviously stark raving mad and not a very nice person. With that said, what I would like to know is where did he ever get the idea that it should be incumbent upon (ie., "OK") him to berate and terrorize another citizen who is simply going about their day and business?

What is truly scary is that there are many more nutjobs with a penchant for totalitarianism lurking around most every corner.

I have myself encountered a couple of them, and they are not friendly either. In fact, some of them can be quite scary, and in more ways than one. It's their idea that people can (and should) be controlled, right down to the minutiae of day to day living, that scares me more than anything else.

There is no room for freedom and democratic thought in such a scenario.
