Big Fat Deal
M Alan Roberts

There are 2100 Kentucky Friend Chicken (KFC) restaurants, in China now. That blows me away. About 1800 McDonalds are also attacking the arteries, of the Chinese, every day. The United States isn't happy to just kill everyone in its own borders with cholesterol; it has to make sure that the entire planet commits suicide too. It just doesn't seem right to think of all of the Chinese people gorging on animal-based diets, getting fatter every day and not even using chopsticks to eat with anymore.

For millions of years, the human species fed on plant-based food sources - as we all still should. In about the last 150 years, there has been an incredible shift to animal-based foods. Our arteries are clogging. Our hearts are failing. Cancers are unable to be fought off naturally because our immune systems are so weakened. Strokes are dropping people like flies everyday and nobody even seems to understand why. The reason - the singular reason - is cholesterol. When our blood flow is restricted by arteries that are clogged shut, we cannot deliver oxygen and nutrients throughout our bodies. And guess whose fault it is - the US government, as usual.

They want us to die after we reach the age where they have to start paying us to live. When we get to our "golden" years and have earned the right to retire, they have no use for us anymore. Can anyone say "Logan's Run"? When you're young, able to work and increase the GNP, they start you on their diets. They discouraged plant-based diets and refuse to subsidize vegetable and fruit lobbyists. Pork, chicken, fish, beef and dairy lobbyists are all well represented in Washington though. They line the politician's pockets, and in turn the politicians do their part to make sure we continue to eat animal-based diets. Then we die at the appropriate age to maximize their overall profit margins. Touching and beautiful, isn't it?

They tell us what we should eat. It is all obscenely untrue! They advise us to consume a diet comprised of 30% fats. Hmm - sounds like a heart attack in the making to me. Now, I could be paranoid, but I don't think so. You see, it's not so difficult to believe that the government profits by our suffering. They do not provide us with health care. They AMA doctors load us full of deadly pharmaceuticals (speaking of Washington lobbyists). They intentionally induce outrageous stress upon us in our workplaces and encourage us to eat us like insatiable cannibals. They then sit back and wait for our bodies to no longer be able to assimilate and metabolize all of the toxins that we continually take in - until we drop dead. Do you know that there is even a death tax?

We have to take our health into our own hands! It isn't just something to think about. Action is imperative! The societies on this planet that do not consume animal-based diets are vastly healthier than those who consume animal-based diets. The statistics clearly show it to be true (see, it's not just my paranoia!). The United States is the fattest nation on the globe. It's rather gross to look at actually. We call ourselves rich, but what about the richness of wisdom and knowledge. What good does it do you to be rich anyway if you're too fat to even get up and walk around? I bet as we are lying in our hospital beds, dying from clogged arteries with no health insurance, we will be wishing we had eaten a few more plant-based meals then.

Besides, it doesn't look right to see the Chinese eating Big Macs. I guess, maybe we can call the US food invasion of China the Tibetan Revenge.

M Alan Roberts is a radical thinker. He has a gimlet eye for injustice, much as did Frederich Engels, a century and a half before. Still, Roberts finds a way to write effective SEO copy. This suggests both sides of his brain, his mind, work equally well.
