    This illustrates another blatant corporate demeaning of outside cultures who are better left to their own priorities and practices rather than repeated attempts to convert them to America’s perverted values.

    I think this campaign is is terribly condescending, to say the least. I agree with the author in that American fast-food values foisted upon the so called “virgins” is obscene. We obviously, in agreeing that this is a valid campaign to offer something worthwhile on these cultures, have no shame or any respect for those who might be different in some way from what we see through our myopic world view lens.

    We have no shame.

    It is also another obvious reason for restructuring the Department of Agriculture.

  2. “Corporate America’s” values is what I’d say; but they have corrupted the population, even destroyed our bodies.

    Yes appointments and nominations to USDA and the Food and Drug Administration are critical. The health care system is going to collapse under the weight of an obese population.

    Just another segment of the medical industrial complex…

    This little bit out of that article says volumes:

    If it is true you are what you eat, I am fast and easy!!

    Really though, no one is shoving “bad for you food” in anyones mouth, but themselves…

  6. I know it’s common to blame people as individuals for their weight — gluttony.

    However, when most of an entire population becomes too heavy, I don’t think an explanation that looks to individual accountability explains it.

    I say this as a person who has always been slender. It’s not because of any special willpower on my part.

    April said…”Really though, no one is shoving “bad for you food” in anyone’s mouth, but themselves”

    But someone needs to be held responsible for the bad decisions of individuals and that is when corporations become evil. I’m hard pressed to think of one product offered by industry/corporations/government that won’t turn out having some adverse effect on the person and/or the environment.

    Bottled water, the combustion engine, the plow, books (bad for trees), the computer we are reading this on (chemicals), the Whopper, flu shots, hiking trails, bikes, cameras, fences, street lights, the mattress I sleep on, the shingles on my roof and the list could go on for ever.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
