The body is also designed to regulate salt. Too little, and you faint; too much, and you pee. Salt doesn't cause heart disease, even though it can exacerbate an existing condition. I will never give up salt, butter or bread. I have lived on a high-carb diet my whole life, and have never taken a prescription medication. Each system is unique to some extent, and reacts to ingestion differently. I happen to have an unusually efficient system: I weigh today what I weighed at age 17, without ever counting a calorie.

Lucky you. Yes, every body is different. I'm very seldom ill, and seem to have a good immune system. "Stable pre-diabetic," they tell me, so more exercise and less sugar would be good.

A startling percentage of the citizens of "the wealthiest nation on Earth" have what is now called food insecurity---many of them children. Is food a "right and not a privilege" ? Is anything ?

Survival of the fittest was so much easier.

Simpler, perhaps; more "natural," even. But easier ? For whom---the victors ?

Wouldn't the goal of civilized creatures be win/win, by one means or another ? If entropy were nature's order, and Man declared himself superior to nature, wouldn't he make it his goal to supplant entropy with something finer ?

Obviously! The longer the strongest survive, the fewer weaklings are born, and a balance exists. Look at every other life form on Earth for proof.

Civilization is the gradual removal of humans from the natural surroundings, and is therefore an affront to nature. No creatures have ever posed a threat to the survival of life on the planet other than humans. No other life form creates garbage that is not able to be broken down and recycled by one natural force or another, such as the dung beetle. If humans were ever to fade away into extinction, the health of the planet would improve immeasurably.

Nevertheless, I don't plan on going away without a fight.

Earth is presently losing the battle; I'm grateful that I won't be here 25 years from now. And I'm very grateful to have witnessed the last seven decades, as an art and design enthusiast !

Possibly relevant to the subject of Broadacre and Jim Crow, I’m looking forward to seeing this exhibit tomorrow at MoMA:
