    I`m pretty sure this has been posted before, BUT I`m not complaining because it`s a great message.

    And I just want to throw this out there for no particular reason: I truly hope that all smokers die cancerous deaths. Truly.

    We have a similar non smoking advert here. This one gets across a far greater view though.

    Boadicea, thanks for that. I honestly don`t see why you`d wish that on us though. No one deserves such a death and I hope that you, nor anyone you are close to has to deal with cancer.

    Hurray for tennessee... no smoking in public areas (restaurants, gas stations, stores, etc.) woot, no second hand smoke for me at restaurants! oh yeah, north carolina and virginia passed similar laws so no matter what direction i go, smoke free buildings.

    You do notice, Boredx12, that the ad goes for kids below the age of 13, right?

    So what? I`m an agnostic meat-loving socialistic patriotic part-time-misanthrope and that doesn`t mean I didn`t copy behavior I observed as a kid.
    And anorexia is a sickness, you should tell your friend that.

    We have laws against smoking in public places. Also, Even if I did get cancer from 2nd hand smoke, I still wouldn`t wish it on anyone else.

    I`ve actually seen this ad on TV before. Really makes you think. I suppose (at least from what i understand) that children learn from the norms of society around them, and their upbringing. Sure, there is always a choice of action, but society and our upbringing tends to set a basic idea of what is acceptable and what isn`t. For example, if a child`s parents instructed him/her that stealing was totally fine, and the child never heard any different (or never cared for any other view) then that child would most likely steal, because the didn`t know/care that it was wrong.

    So very true. A few weeks back, I got annoyed with traffic while my 3yr old son was in the vehicle, and I called another driver a moron. Yesterday we were behind a slow moving red mini-van, and he looked at it and said, "I wish this red moron would get out of the way."
    I felt like such a horrible parent when I heard him say that. :(

    *shakes head*

    Observe the fall of man.

    I have a theory as to why people seem to be getting more and more cruel that deals with this very matter:

    Around WWI and maybe a touch beforehand, Parents were strict. They believed in hard work, loyalty, hoonor, but to an extreme. Children where practically living in boot camp at the home. So they grew up and decided that their children should have the same values, but not be so harsh with it, so they eased off and taught morality AND free will.

    The next generation viewed them, selfishly, as tyrants. Their grandparents (The first culprits) became old and kind to their grandkids, to weak to be hardasses. So those children grew up to be rebellious: The 70`s. Lawless children thought their hard ass parents were the devil and decided that THEIR kids should live as they WANTED to. Enter our generation... For the most part, we view authority as irrational idiocy and live like savages.

    Now, don`t get me wrong. There are exceptions.

    Unfortunately... the exceptions are few, and fall by the hundreds to the idiotic cruel majority of the lost causes.

    The media we see and the world we live in, racism, sexism, emperialism, doesn`t help much either...

    Actually, Pindragon,
    that`s not such a new phenomenon as you describe it. If you take a look at how families were structured even centuries ago, you will see that your argument even fits then.
    Education (if there was any) was a lot more violent than even prior to WWI.
    It`s not just then and how families worked at that time.

    Mankind has always been unnecessarily cruel and sought violence as the prime problem-solver. Of course you`re right, I just wanted to point out that it`s not just the last three or four generations, but a lot more.
