My friend Paul Batt found this sign from the Taichung City Health Department that depicts smokers as savages -- presumably in need of civilization in the form of not smoking. The sign reads:
New Human Beings Don't Smoke
Smoking not only harms your health but that of others as well
The presentation of smokers as savages in need of a civilizing influence...says volumes. It used to be that smoking was a sign of modernity, now it is not.
