Read these shocking parallels and compare them to the endless lecturing we are forced to endure today about our personal lifestyle choices by the state and their propaganda arm, the mass media.

- The Nazis banned tobacco advertising and financed huge public relations campaigns to propagandize people into giving up smoking.
- The Nazis banned smoking in government offices, civic transport, university campuses, rest homes, post offices, many restaurants and bars, hospital grounds and workplaces, and Hitler gave awards to associates who quit the habit.
- A ban on smoking in private vehicles was called for.
- The Nazi Reich Health Office warned that smoking caused impotence and produced posters depicting smoking as a dirty habit of Jews, Gypsies, blacks, intellectuals and Indians.
- Nazi lobbyists lectured terrified children in schools on the horrors of racial impurity as a result of smoking.
- The term "passive smoking" (Passivrauchen) was coined by the Nazi Anti-Tobacco League. Its author, Fritz Lickint, offered no supporting evidence to claim that smokers poisoned everyone around them, while also stating that drinking coffee caused cancer.
- Hitler was an ardent vegetarian and did not smoke or drink after the age of 30, even accrediting the rise of fascism to his success in kicking the habit. He forbade anyone from smoking in a room he might enter. Fellow fascist leaders Mussolini, Napoleon and Franco also detested smoking.
- The Nazi anti-smoking crusade was unleashed with the help of manufactured junk science on behalf of the medical and health establishment, one such example being that smoking caused "spontaneous abortions" in pregnant women.
- Hitler attempted to price out smoking for Germans, levying huge taxes on cigarettes.
- Despite the Nazi propaganda crusade against smoking, tobacco sales increased in Germany, leading some history professors to hypothesize that smoking was an act of cultural resistance against fascism, until the late 1930's after smoking was banned in most public buildings and tobacco sales rapidly declined.

Perhaps not quite relevant but one of my hobby horses (as a hunter): The Nazi's were also the first to introduce gun control, claiming it made for safer citizens & that the rest of the world would see their wisdom & follow in their footsteps. Jackbooted footsteps.

The beginning of the end for any society is when it's leadership takes away the people's means of defending themselves. That is why our forefathers had the insight to create the 2nd amendment. The socialist left politicians are slowly attempting to take away are right to bare arms through gun control and their agenda is to secure total control over the people.

Here is a good resource on the subject. http://www.secondamendment.net/
