Frying some corn tortillas yesterday, I used tallow for the first time. Reminded me of fast food joints in the old days, being almost intoxicated by the aroma waiting for the order, anticipating a meal that was was alluring and tasty. Today's PUFA foods are not only unhealthy by comparison, they smell and taste different - artificial? McD's french fries now - if you're foolish enough to eat them - have a window of about three minutes between being too hot and before cooling to the point of disgust.

Seems to me the food/pharma/medical "conspiracy " is merely another aspect of the relentless logic of capitalism impersonally grinding away. No person or group of people has to plan and/or manipulate the societal outcome. That is simply the result of an ever-more single-minded drive for profit operating on innumerable micro-levels.

Yeah I agree, but both theories exist in tandem while holding each other's hand and skipping to the finish line. Unchecked capitalist greed got us to where we are now. The black-hole that is greed is inherently fine, if we do what it takes to make sure the light of truth isn't something it devours. Humanity has failed at that. But, in practicality, that's like saying "I'm going wish this square peg into that round hole". If we could just separate politics and education from the corporate sector with ridiculous, tedious and overbearing legislature then we'd be ok. I do, in fact, believe we are the first group to ever discuss these matters...

"Desires fulfilled increase thirst like salt water." The more greed accomplishes the more it wants. Greed is not inherently fine, it's inherently voracious and dangerous and only accomplishes good incidentally by mistake. Either way you can't explain the behavior of the medical industry or corporations more generally through greed alone. Personal malice HAS to enter the equation somewhere or part of their behavior is unexplainable. It's very uncomfortable to realize that the "elite" is actually malicious rather than incompetent though
