#70- So the corporations are killing us...

lets talk about:
gen·o·cide /ˈdʒɛnəˌsaɪd/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[jen-uh-sahyd] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun
the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group.
[Origin: 1940–45; < Gk géno(s) race + -cide]

with the definition in mind, i'm just going to throw an idea out there.


SMOKING (cigarettes) is GENOCIDE.

I think smoking is more suicide ("the intentional taking of one's own life") due to the knowledge of its effects and the stupidity of continuing to do it. I think for it to be a genocide it would have to target a certain group with the intent of harm or extermination.

But all other things considered, that's a really really good thought. Just not the right word.
hahahaha. smoking is suicide. but its like a slow mass assisted suicide. yeah i chose the word genocide because the word is like supahpowerful (just go ask teh un...) see i think the that cig corps are intentionally selling a dangerous product, hence, deliberate extermination (although for them, the slower, the better.) however! i think its a tough wrod to use cause its not a set group; people of all ages smoke. there is no racial or ethnic group per se but there is a group (though perhaps it doesnt count if the only thing they have in common is the fact that they smoke...)

i actually believe that this smoking phenom is WORSE than genocide because teh corporations are deliberately trying to EXTEND a horrible addicted life...before it eventually kills teh user.

I think it's up to the user, though. Is it really all the corp's fault? I mean why do most people smoke nowadays? Cause people are doing it. They think it's cool looking. Yeah, if inhaling tar relieved stress why can't they just stick their heads in the oven or something.

But true, the corporations still fund that shiz. But ultimately the people are the ones that are all cigarette happj.
OH MAN. THE OVEN. RIGHT TO THE POINT.
anyway you know i jsut like to blame the corporations...
btw, youre whole free will concept, how very christian of you.

anyway, i think back in the day, when it wasnt exposed how harmful they were, it was more genocide. however, today, people are informed (and delusional) so its less genocide.
can something be more or less genocide? are there levels?

yeah its totes suicide, but making an argument is fun. stretch those words out.
wow 70 posts...im impressed. we should party when we hit a hundred (by that time, it will be summer vvvv.)
