  1. I am referencing a small snippet of Brainy Furball’s a dedicated E-Cigarette advocate. I read this creative

The National Governments who control the game and profit from it, have set the rules in such a way as no one can beat them. It is however in the game’s interest that continuous excitement is generated. In order to achieve this, the two teams have been made to appear to be ferocious competitors – diametrically opposed: Nothing could be further from the truth. The whole game is based on this deception.”
