plumpjack makes the case that a common thread of existence binds humans with creatures as lowly as the parasite worm.
the message that people need to get is to ignore all the party lines and focus instead on the biology.
you have hosts at one extreme and parasites on the other. parasites have no morality. once you start seeing parasitism as a “legitimate” survival strategy you cease to be shocked by it. it just IS, and you deal with it appropriately, which, BTW, ISN’T teaching it to be something it is not. you deal with absolute parasites in absolute terms.
parasites need hosts for survival. hosts, oth, NEED parasites because they keep them strong. think about the alt-right movement. why does it exist now, and not 20 years ago? it is the host’s reaction to feeling threatened at a fundamental level. if there were no threats, the host would get soft, which is exactly what happened, and it’s why the strong (shitlords) are now being compelled to act decisively.
hosts vs. parasites. very simple.
And fat hosts = fat parasites.
The obesity epidemic is a physical manifestation of the blubbery softness of the American soul. It’s why the soul is being eaten from the inside out. Let’s hope the immune system reaction is still strong enough to repel the parasitic infestation, and that our next generation of men will be the ZFG Thors our current generation of weepy androgynes cannot even fathom for themselves.
