I read a wee article in the paper.
The article itself was about peope following fad diets, but at its heart it displayed one of the greatest problems facing the world today. I refer of course the complete lack of common sense in the wider population and their propensity to follow any kind of fad no matter how stupid or downright dangerous it is.
The article criticises people for following “gluten free” diets and wasting millions unnecessarily, but this is just part of a world wide phenomenon. In the case of gluten, they are following a fad, not because they are coeliacs but because some complete non-entity has recommended it in some fucking magazine or other. All it takes is for some brain dead “celebrity” to mention a fad and off go the masses, adopting a diet or lifestyle just because someone named Karkrashian or whatever says they find it wonderful.
I reckon that by this stage in its evolution, Homo Sapiens has managed to reverse the work of hundreds of thousands of years and we are back to the stage of single-digit IQs. I swear if Simon Cowell announced he lived on a diet of his own piss half the population of The Brain Dead would be off immediately drinking their own urine and swearing that it’s the most wonderful thing since sliced bread. Naturally “The Piss Diet” would have its own Facebook page with half a million followers.
What the fuck has happened? We used to be a people who could look after ourselves but the last couple of generations seem to be loosing a sense of self. Their lives are dictated by so called “celebrities”, crap they read on the Interweb and generally following a mindless herd. They only have to read one [deliberately] startling headline, and it immediately becomes a truth that’s cast in stone.
It’s no wonder the Nanny State get away with their scaremongering and why people cower under their bullying.
They have become too stupid to know any better.
