    What makes Vapers Tick : Apparently Fear

    Steve K of Steve Ks Vaping World wrote a brilliant piece about what drives Vapers to be so political.

    What is going on with e-cigarettes that it turns normal folks: college students, housewives, executives, mechanics and so on into such tenacious defenders of individual rights?

    Fear.

    Yes, these people are genuinely afraid. They are afraid of the consequences of electronic cigarettes being removed from the market or regulated to the point of uselessness.

    Its not like were talking about a nutty conspiracy theory here. Plenty of places have already taken that step. France recently announced it will ban e-cigarettes in public areas. Russia is planning a complete ban, much like several third-world states that have bought into the myths of e-cigarettes. Many of which, interestingly, are nations with terrible smoking rates.

    ....And the fear of a death sentence is the common thread that keeps the community together. Its the reason this community is so active. The stakes are simply too high to treat with the level of apathy typical of the American public.

    Read the full article here.

    Personally, I would have also added the motivation to see a more Fairer and Just world. I post on various major websites that host online communities that deal with all kinds of injustices, and many of those injustices don't even affect me. Kind of feels like this sometimes ;

    ........

    retracted. Best to read the actual pages in TugBoat's link. The Real doctors put it much more better than I could. I just confuse the issue.

    Scroll to the bottom of TugBoat's link and read the currently last comment. Professor Micheal Siegel really hammers Glantz's critique of the study.
