Why This Isn’t Just About Vaping

Humans have throughout history proven to be freethinkers.  They discovered fire, the wheel, how to hunt, and everything we have in our daily lives, right down to the computer you are using to read this.

Why are we now so willingly handing over our rights to be freethinkers?  Because the ability to be a freethinker is being educated out of us.  We grow up being told how we should act, how to dress, what foods we should eat.   It isn’t just in schools either.   Have you looked at a magazine or tv?  We are bombarded with it day in and day out.  It is no wonder there is a major lack of what use to be common sense in the world today.

By the time we are adults most of us have spent years being taught, not how to think for ourselves, but how to follow instructions.

So what does this have to do with vaping?  The governments count on the “training” we have received, allowing them to just make a statement and having it believed even without any facts.  They just say a behaviour is bad, knowing most people will accept that said behaviour is bad for them at face value, without doing any research on their own.

It didn’t start with vaping and it won’t end there either.  We need to take control of our lives back, quit allowing our governments to tell us how to live.  We need to start learning and researching answers for ourselves.

Most importantly, we need to once again be the freethinkers we were meant to be.

  1. Just how far down the road have we been driven when it comes to freethinking? After reading your blog I decided to put myself to the test. I brainstormed all of the topics I could where public bodies are making a fuss and decided to research, “salt intake” – we all know it is a fact that salt is ‘deadly.'[
    I Googled the following….. Is salt really bad for you…
    Try it and find out if you are a free thinker… unlike me. lol.
