We must accept that junk food is the new tobacco
The way I see it, this means junk food is good stuff, and I should eat more of it than I already do:
But the way I look at things seems to be becoming the opposite of the mainstream media message that tobacco is bad, alcohol is bad, fast food is bad, carbon dioxide is bad, etc, etc. Rejecting these messages, I instead increasingly see them as all good.
In part that’s a reaction to being bombarded with one particular message: I just switch off, and stop listening.
It can happen with anything. The first time I hear a piece of music I might not like it much, but on the second and third occasion I may like it more, but by the thousandth time I’ve heard it I’ll be thoroughly sick of it (e.g. Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, apparently the most popular piece of music in Britain, which I now simply can’t stand).
So the more I’m told that tobacco is bad, or carbon dioxide is bad, the more I reject those ideas, and start thinking the opposite.
I also reject the censorship of heretical ideas that I’m not allowed to think, or express.
In fact, it seems to me that of you really want to make some idea popular, you could do no better than to make it unthinkable and unsayable.
Reaction always eventually sets in.
Since he got elected 4 years ago I’ve been told incessantly how awful Donald \trump is. So now I hope that he gets re-elected in November with an even bigger majority than before. If I was an American voter I’d be utterly determined to cast my vote for him in November. And I suspect that there are a lot of American voters who feel the exact same way.
