The AMA – Saving Your Life, Stealing Your Freedom.

The Australian Medical Association should have the absolute fuck kicked out of it for being a bunch of Orwellian wank-stains and insulting to the rights of free people. Who the fuck do they think they are? They’re in the paper this weekend calling for the government to ban the funding of any film, play or piece of art that contains smoking. The Australian arts industry is small and relies heavily on government funding. In this move the AMA seek to censor artistic expression and control the reflection of society being presented by artists. They are, in effect, calling for an end to free expression, and why? Because people get addicted to cigarettes and die. Big fucking deal! People get killed by cars, are they going to seek an end to car chase scenes as well? Of course not, they know everyone would tell them to fuck off which is pretty much what’s happening anyway.

If the government were to rise to the bait, what the fuck would we be allowed to see in our entertainment? People working out and eating properly? Fuck – that sounds like a great fucking film! Yeah Doc, I’ll fork out $15 to watch smug shit-sacks being perfect while all around my real life the world goes to hell. FUCK YOU, and thanks for killing the Aussie film industry, you miserable CUNT!

I used to smoke cigarettes. I smoked a pack a day for fifteen years and two years ago I stopped. I didn’t start smoking because of movies, I started because I liked the smell. I hate smoking, I hate the addiction, but I believe it is everyone’s right to choose for themselves. Freedom is all about choice. I don’t put down or look down on my friends who smoke and I consider them just as much a part of this society as I am. Smokers are already pariahs, huddled together, dejected and despised outside buildings in the freezing cold, the AMA would make them invisible too.

As an adult in a free society, I should be able to do pretty much whatever I want providing it doesn’t negatively impact anyone else’s right to do whatever they want. If I choose to smoke surely that is my right as an adult. This right is not the one under threat, the right to see a fictional depiction of person smoking tobacco, something that actually happens, is what the AMA would remove from us. They want to remove artists’ rights to reflect certain elements of the society they live in. These guys are a bunch of doctors, yeah? Fuck-head meddling doctors with no concept of the importance of art in defining cultural identity. They should stick to medicine and making people well. Have you cunts cured cancer yet? No? Well, get back to fucking work and leave artistic content to artists, you useless fuckbags! What value does good health have when you have no freedom left to enjoy with it?

    Imagine a world where you weren’t allowed to see *anything* with a potentially negative or harmful impact depicted in art. Can you think of a single film that would pass those constraints? I can’t.

    Maybe ‘Milo and Otis’.

    No, wait, they threw a cat down a waterfall in that film. At least the pug puppy didn’t light up though.

  2. “As an adult in a free society, I should be able to do pretty much whatever I want providing it doesn’t negatively impact anyone else’s right to do whatever they want.”

    That’s exactly it. I presume that our host already knows about this, but I’ll explain anyway if anyone is in doubt about this. 17th century, Spinoza’s main idea in his “Treaty of the theological and political authorities” – text which lays the fundations to what we call today a democratic State – is precisely that one is free to act as he wills, as long as the said actions do not compromise any other citizen’s very same freedom.

    Ok, done with the *boring* stuff, just wanted to share my humble knowledge. 🙂

  3. oh and forgive my miserable syntax, I’m (still) in a pretty pitiful state right now. To give you an idea it’s the state when you can’t remember when was the last time you went to bed.

    It is almost like a small minority in Australia set out to test the passions of the Australian people and the strength of democracy in this country. They make it out like their own twisted radical ideas of “Right and Wrong” is a mainstream movement and impose one twisted idea after an other on the rest of US. They really believe in “Utopia” where everybody will be safe and never ever anything will happen to them if they follow the lead of these Neo-Fascist Bolshevik brigades without question. They assume that we all have to think along the one and only right way, or you will be branded an unsocial, unethical, moral low life. The “Right Way Doctrine” is of course set by themselves and the ultimate ideology to follow by everyone just like the fucking bible.
    Smoking; – is a pain in the arse to most of us, but it doesn’t make it right or democratic to impose our personal ideology on other people! Smokers are also part of our society! They are not lesser people because of their questionable habit of enjoying a cancer causing puff of smoke!

    It is almost like a very small but very vocal minority in Australia set out to test the passions of the Australian people and the strength of democracy in this country.

    Smoking; – is a pain in the arse to most of us, but it doesn’t make it right or democratic to impose the personal ideology, of a very few on the rest of our country! Smokers are also part of our society! They are not lesser people because of their questionable habit of enjoying a cancer causing puff of smoke!
    Now listen up, all of you do-gooder Safety Nazis. I don’t want you to be my protector. I don’t want your lectures and preaching. And stop trying to control and save me and be a goddamn pain in the ass to the rest of us like the fkn Gestapo.
