One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Obesity is progress and enlightenment

I forget sometimes that some people grew up always having the Internet, cell phones, fat people, lazy people, stupid people, unknown neighbors, and no community. Even ten years before all that, though civilization was still in its accelerating decline, you could find plenty of sane and healthy examples of quality people. This was before retreating into virtuality was possible, escapism and drugs were mainstreamed, or "hooking up" was invented. Some standards still held.

Do not think that the way things are today are the way things have always been, or that "progress" is anything more than decay, or that Europe or other parts of the world are moving quite so fast into the ditch. Go back to sources just a few decades ago and you'll see the time as quaint and innocent, maybe even boring in its calmness and normalcy.

Q. What would people do if they didn't have stuff to click on all day?
A. Something better than clicking on stuff. People used to actually do things.

Q. What if people had to plan in advance to meet friends at a specific location at a specific time but didn't have cell phones?
A: People organized their plans, thought things through beforehand, and didn't flake out. It was a really good time when people said things and then did them. Moderns are puny in comparison.

Obesity is best understood as a form of progress and enlightenment. Stuff your face with junky garbage and stare at idiocy on a glowing screen. All the morons are doing it - it's smart. Life doesn't get any better than that baby!
