This poignant video cleverly draws the comparison between oppressive governments and oppressive food processing manufacturers. It’s certainly true that we must maintain our right to choose. But there’s going to be a lot of people thinking we’ve “flipped the bozo bit“. Calling for a revolution? Well, there’s so many parallels here it’s difficult to quickly pick where to start. As a Paleo follower, I am hoping for a revolution of sorts. But when I started this journey, it didn’t take me long to realize I should start by revolutionizing myself. Leave the arguing to others and concentrate on improving my food choices. I still feel that way. I’m still on my weightloss journey. But as I’ve discussed on here before; the attack on cholesterol; the processed sugary foods; the fear of saturated fat; all identify a concerted and coordinated effort to control our food supply and what we eat. Probably for the purpose of profits.
So while I like taking the personal responsibility approach, I’m sure I still come off as preaching to people. It’s not my intent but that’s what happens when you feel passionate about something. This video is rooted in this movement’s passion. Living our lives according to paleo principles will certainly help ourselves. But standing on the sidelines and watching everyone else’s health deteriorate is difficult to do. What’s worse is the injustice of our government, which is supposed to be helping us, instead helping the giant multinational corporations. We do need a revolution. But put this in the proper context. We aren’t raising up militias here to beat back the food tyrants and their nanny state comrads. We just need to raise awareness. Wake people up one or two at a time.
