The poor little fellow pictured here is an Antibrain. Taken from
the head of a typical Anti-smoker, he's about to be dissected by, of
all things, a smoker.
Dissecting Antismokers' Brains dumps traditional "conspiracy theory"
thinking about social movements and examines the rise of public
feeling against smokers and smoking as the being the product of a
number of diverse groups and individuals with differing
motivations. Today's antismoking lobby has access to hundreds of
millions of dollars to promote their goals but "The Greedy", those
with largely financial motivations, are only one of nine distinct
groups examined in the first fifty page section of Dissecting.
This website will give you a general introduction to
Dissecting Antismokers' Brains. Several excerpts
including the Author's Preface, an analysis of the arguments and
research surrounding tobacco taxes, and excerpts from the extensive
sections on "second-hand" smoke are available through the links on
the left. In addition, www.TheTruthIsALie.com
is a full reproduction of one of the appendices, while
http://www.nycclash.com/Philly.html#ETSTable is an early version
of another Appendix.
These sections should give you a reasonably good feel for the
writing style and content to be found within the book as well as
providing the web reader with some important basic information.
