I’ve heard a lot of discourse lately on what’s gone wrong in Europe – why there’s so much of a propensity to support false moral equivalences, why antisemitism is on the rise, and why the EU is so quick to criticize Israel while defending Iraq.
There are tons of theories out there, but I think I’ve finally got the winner: Lack of priorities. Most Europeans would rather give up sex for a month than quit smoking.
Nearly 80 percent of British smokers, almost 70 percent in the Netherlands, France and Germany and more than 55 percent in the Belgium and Spain would forgo sex rather than live without cigarettes for a month.
Well, that explains it perfectly.
