In belated response to the progressive scolds who wish to manage my health for me
Progressive premise (which we know to be serious, because the word “shit” is thrown in to show just how real we’re preparing to get up in here): “If we actually give a shit about people and their health, then we have to look at what we can do and what we can fix.”
protein wisdom response: “My health is most negatively affected by handing over its control and management to pseudo-intellectual progressive twatwaffles who believe that my free will, repurposed as self-reliance (or a ‘self-discipline framework’), is ‘a fetish’ — a kind of useful fiction marinated in Judeo-Christian godbotherism and packaged as a cultural imperative by slave-owning fascists ungrateful for the Crown of England’s colonial largess — that these materialist despots have determined I need to get over so that they can begin the important work of running my life for me. Though they will, of course, incorporate the notion so that the movement toward a rejection of self-discipline appears to rise spontaneously as part of some amorphous collective paradigm shift (SCIENCE!), if only to fend off the suggestion that they’ve simply replaced my ego with their own and thus are performing perfectly as little isolated pockets of authoritarianism that they will then group into a kind of free-floating hive mind they hope to disguise as a progressive stage in evolutionary history.
“Or, to put it another way, my belief in my free will and in my ability to potentially control my own destiny — that is, the essence of the American Dream — is what fuels my vigor and keeps me healthy and making the kinds of choices about my body that I wish to make. So if you do ‘actually give a shit about people and their health,’ you’re going to have to account for the health of those who don’t want any of your fucking ‘fixing’ in the first place.
“You filthy presumptuous skank.”
