"You're Nearly A Laugh, But You're Really A Cry..."

Read this and then read this. The impulse only tacit in the first story has been put into action in the second. I am referring to the sociopathic impulse to control how other people choose to enjoy themselves, not the specific objects (barbecues and smoking) to which this impulse is directed.

The juxtaposition of the two cases exemplifies one aspect of what I'm getting at with the term "variably calibrated fascism" - what is only a propaganda effort by the EPA now, will become yet another object of State enforced social engineering if and when the eco-fascists think they can get away with it.

What Roger Waters said: Pigs.
