Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Tobacco

The cigarette industry spent millions on genomics research

"Tobacco is radioactively contaminated with polonium-210, a naturally occurring decay product of radon. Recent studies have shown a synergy between polonium and carcinogenic chemicals in cigarette smoke that increase the lifetime risk of lung cancer 8 to 25 fold. A filter for removing polonium-210 from cigarette smoke has been available for more than 40 years." - Janet Raloff

Intoxicating and addictive, tobacco became the subject of the first truly global commodity craze.

1607 London has more than 7,000 tobacco "houses"—cafe-like places where the city's growing throng of nicotine junkies could buy and smoke tobacco.

American tobacco is not just any tobacco.

The tobacco sold in American cigarettes in not the tobacco the American Indians used but a much more potent strain used by the Carib Indians who were cannibals.

The native Virginia tobacco, Nicotiana rustica, grown by the Indians, had a biting taste and was not as sweet to smoke as Caribbean tobacco nor as strong.

A leaner American Tobacco, headed by Percival Hill, is one of the four companies spun off from the old trust. The other three were RJ Reynolds, P Lorillard and Liggett & Myers, all of which had existed prior to the formation of the trust and which had maintained varying levels of autonomy within it.

1921 to 1924 Albert Lasker revolutionizes the advertising industry by using the radio in advertising campaigns for Palmolive soap, Kotex sanitary napkins, and Kleenex disposable facial tissues while significantly altering popular culture.

1924 American Tobacco retained Lord & Thomas to work on the Lucky Strike account. L&T owner Albert Lasker* persuades Percival Hill to focus the majority of the marketer's ad budget on that single brand. A series of magazine ads showed movie starlets smoking cigarettes making Lucky Strike a leading brand of cigarettes.

1925 Lucky Strike has 16% of the cigarette market, a distant third behind Camel (40%) and L&M's Chesterfield (25%).

Albert Lasker appealed directly to the psychology of the consumer: Women seldom smoked cigarettes - "Reach for a Lucky instead of a sweet" - marketing spiel asserted a connection between health, thinness, fashion and Lucky Strike.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
