Modern Times and Fat Bellies

Of all the things about Western culture that causes me pain and shame, at least equal to gun violence and the heroin epidemic, is the obsession with weight loss.

There are places where weight loss isn’t a problem at all. Where they don’t need bands in their stomachs to only allow so much food to be consumed – before the consumer pukes, I assume.

They don’t need clinics where they freeze off the fat. Nope, these lucky folks have it made. They lose weight the natural way – starvation.

Imagine if the 1.5 trillion dollar gift to the already rich was used to feed the starving, or provide clean drinking water for the billions without it.


”Poverty is the most extreme form of violence.”

– Gandhi
