Socialist Engineering manifesto.....with a twist. The latest Robert Wood Johnson Foundation propaganda to mandate more Nicoderm salesThe activist organization Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) shamelessly demonstrates how to bring about Social Engineering in your community, with this new RWJF social engineering publication.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation program is actually titled "Social Marketing", but since the true motive is to influence lawmakers to use the force of government, by any means possible, to bring about social change (smoking bans)......it is in fact social engineering.
And it is social engineering, predicated on the exaggerations and lies that secondhand smoke is a "health hazard" even as test results from the American Cancer Society prove indoor SHS levels are up to 25,000 times safer than OSHA air quality regulations. Yet, the hidden fact remains that RWJF has some very strong financial interests in pharmaceutical nicotine products. So while the social engineers (RWJF) inform lawmakers and the ALA, ACS, AHA, AMA, etc.... that smoking bans are required to save lives.....the fact of the matter is that smoking bans are required to increase the value of RWJF holdings and portfolio; which is almost exclusively made up of their founding partner the Johnson & Johnson Company and ALZA, the maker of Nicoderm.
All of which provides an unconventional twist on the idea of social engineering. The support and funding RWJF provides in seeking smoking bans has at its core, a purely capitalist motive. And though capitalism has served us very well as the basic economic system in western societies, it is most effective when it operates within the free market structure.....and not perverted by the constraints of law. Especially when those constraints of law can only be justified by exaggerations and lies about secondhand smoke......even, as mentioned earlier, the American Cancer Society has shown us that indoor levels are up to 25,000 times safer than OSHA air quality regulations.
Since RWJF is actually the single largest shareholder of Johnson & Johnson Company stock, and J & J is the largest manufacturer of nicotine replacement products, Nicoderm and Nicoderm CQ; RWJF's motive for social engineering probably has less to do with a pure desire to bring about social good than it does to increase it's financial stake and value in it's big brother the Johnson & Johnson Company. Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's ownership share alone in the Johnson & Johnson Company is a $5.4 billion financial stake at last review.
And not only was RWJF founded by the Johnson & Johnson Company.....but nearly every current board member of RWJF is a former board member or company executive with the Johnson & Johnson Company. Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has provided $200 million + to non-profit health organizations like the American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, the American Medical Association, numerous non-smoker's rights groups, research universities, etc. even the CDC. And then these organizations provide the impetus for smoking ban debate in order for RWJF to avoid the outward appearance of impropriety. But the acceptance of funding by these non-profit groups to push for smoking bans has tainted their once respectable images, as now these non-profit health organizations have simply become pharmaceutical company spokespersons, calling for the elimination of tobacco nicotine use (smoking bans)........while promoting pharmaceutical nicotine use.
The result is a social engineering appearance for good, while concealing the fact that it is merely an elaborate pharmaceutical company marketing plan. Or as RWJF now calls it "Social Marketing".
