I was browsing through the papers today.
It was just a browse – not looking for anything in particular – I just like to know what the world is plotting.
I came across a sentence. It was in the middle of an article about Dementia, which seems to be the now Holy Grail for the WHO [completely overlooking the fact that Dementia is a condition of old age which the WHO is determined to push us all into]
However, she said, each person has a responsibility where possible to eat properly, not become over-weight, exercise, not smoke and drink modestly – all of which help to fend off the onset of dementia.
What struck me about this was the word "responsibility". Why have I got a responsibility. and to whom?
I am a free individual and have no responsibility to anyone, apart from the moral responsibility to provide for and protect my family. I have fuck all responsibility to the state or anyone else and certainly not the WHO.
I had earlier been reading about the goings on in North Korea, where as we know the state is everything. That came to mind when I read the verbal diarrhea of the head of the WHO. Is she telling me that my responsibility is to the state? Am I just a little productive drone whose responsibility is to remain healthy and productive for as long as possible whilst imposing the least possible burden on the state?
So I have a responsibility to eat properly and to not over-eat? I have a responsibility to exercise? I have a responsibility to not smoke and to drink modestly? What does drinking modestly mean anyway? Do I have a responsibility to never drink while bollock naked?
Margaret Chan can go fuck herself. Whether she does so modestly or immodestly is irrelevant to me.
No one has the right to tell me what my responsibilities are.
They can politely inform me of their opinions if they so wish, and I will politely ignore them.
As for telling me what my responsibilities are – they can sit on my finger and swivel.
