The tyranny of the jackass

David Warren offers a different perspective on tyranny.

Sixty years later, the world is changed. Peace has brought the tyranny of the jackass, aptly symbolized by his anti-smoking by-laws. We have forgotten everything. For instance, that freedom is laughter. That it's a glass of whisky, an off-colour joke. That freedom was freedom when freedom was a smoke.
