I think this plain packaging cigarettes in Australia proves that we live in a socialist world and democracy is going down the toilet. What I am mean is that today we can travel long distances because there was no rules imposed on the Wright Brothers about safety. The freedom? of choice of individuals MUST!!! be preserved for the future coming generations. What the government consider as a victory in reality is a loss of individual freedom. Follow you hearth always, fear nothing, speak up. The days of governments controlling the masses with the use of media and propaganda are numbered. Have fun enjoy today because tomorrow is going to be fantastic learn to master your own feelings and emotion. Love to everyone on this beautiful planet.
I would also add that all the above are just observations from the prospective of my point of you and I dislike emotions such as fear, jealousy, hatred, revenge, greed, superstition, and anger. I discourage the governments and the media to encourage such emotional states on people. :) Good Luck!

This will pave the way. Next will be alcohol then some foods. The thing is it will not stop any habbit, it only targets the companies property rights and loses them millions of dallars each year. That may seem good but in todays economic situation one would want to support companies not try to close them down, more job losses less taxes paid etc. Not sure what is behind all of this nonsense but it has a lot of weight? Is it just health? If so then why not reduce the price of healthy foods? Milk? vegetables? One does wonder??
