Oye! A seven year old girl makes a diet list that is filled with directives like: “17 pushups twice a day, run up and down the driveway twice a day, 8 glasses of water every day, more fruits and vegetables every day…etc.” Well, the first I heard of it was this morning on good ol’ CNN where they had a segment stating how heart-breaking it was that things are so out of hand diet-wise and fashion-wise that a seven year old girl “ruminates so intently that she hides in her room” writing up diet lists.
The tenor of the conversation was that the media, the fashion and advertising industry, etc. are having such an impact on the mind-set of the general public that even 7 year olds are turning to such desperate measures as…MAKING A SENSIBLE HEALTH PLAN!!!
Oh no! Not that!
How damned arrogant can the mainstream media be, to believe so ardently in their impact on the public is so intense? It also begs the question; What are they trying to manipulate now? Are they so stupid that they are unaware that this little girl may simply have been paying attention in Health Class and the the sagging education system may have, for once, come shining through? That maybe some unique teacher somewhere was actually having an impact on his/her students?
So what are the media sources trying to spin now? That it’s aberrant behavior to seek to take your health and welfare into your own hands? Will we be seeing conversations of panels of doctors, pharmacists and scientists of all ilk advocating getting these poor disturbed and misguided children into a “program” aimed at getting them back on the “right” track? And of course there are pharmaceuticals designed to restore the “proper” chemical balance in their little brains, that has occurred due to a poor diet of fresh fruits and vegetables.
I don’t believe that even the corporate-owned mindless talking heads of mainstream media can be so stupid or ignorant as to believe this ridiculous gossamer glamour they are asking us to swallow. So naturally, to my conspiracy theorist’s sense of right and wrong…there’s something rotten in Denmark.
Let’s keep our eyes and ears peeled.
