This might offend a few ,but hell it might also make sense.
I was looking at my pack of Canadian classic. I looked at the warning label ,and thought they only put these warnings on here because of rising Health Care ,and they don't want to cover the costs(meaning they really don't give a bit about you .Only how much your worth). Then I thought ,but these people are the same elitest that wanted us to smoke in the first place!
That's when I started to put together a pattern of stress inducing systems of popular culture. From fashion to Sex . They are all distributed by a few people with enough money and power to profess them over the media.
So that comes to my conclusion of this matter. That the popular media is a constant form of agitation (unless you are rich enough to keep up ,and you know who you are, or think you are...aargh whatever)to the lower class of the so-called freedom of the middle-lower-lower class of a majority of the population. And Since over-population is one of the major conspiracy notions. Stress is also one of the major killers.
