Food is a form of social control / “Healthy eating disorder”

Two articles on food and eating being used as ways of social control: Is food already being used as a tool for social control in present-day America? and Choosing healthy foods now called a mental disorder.

Why would the US establishment be so consistently and firmly opposed to feeding the poor and the homeless? I would propose it’s because there’s an unspoken — and occasionally explicit — belief that these people are better off dead.

You’re not supposed to question your food, folks. Sit down, shut up, dig in and chow down. Stop thinking about what you’re eating and just do what you’re told by the mainstream media and its processed food advertisers. Questioning the health properties of your junk food is a mental disorder, didn’t you know? And if you “obsess” over foods (by doing such things as reading the ingredients labels, for example), then you’re weird. Maybe even sick.

That’s the message they’re broadcasting now. Junk food eaters are “normal” and “sane” and “nourished.” But health food eaters are diseased, abnormal and malnourished.

    Well, the Bovine website leads with the ‘Pasteur’s last words’ trope, while Natural News is a hotbed of vaccine-autism theory. But the point about FNB is spot-on. Scarcity is a weapon, which is why I maintain that the only true economic freedom is freedom from economics. As for orthorexia, howzabout a sort of gentlefolkx’ agreement in which we agree that orthorexia is a non-problem in exchange for you agree that autism is a non-problem?

    When did I say autism was a problem?

    And of course fast food is subsidized because it is made from corn thus it’s artificially cheaper for poor people who can afford this food over other healthier foods thus the subsidies lead to obesity.

    You said nothing of the sort. Natural News seems to be on the mercury-autism hobby horse.

    Oh, I see. I should have said ‘they’ not ‘you.’ So sorry.
