Top Post on Mahathir's Speech thing

The thing about the whole speech is that Mahathir was praising Jews for their smarts, and encouraging Muslims to get smart, but the point of getting their getting smart is to advance themselves over the West, over Jews.

It is a philosophy that measures itself wholly by what others are doing. It is not a philosophy that measures itself against how good it can be ie against infinite advance.

I have a real thing about that sort of negativity. Being anti-McDonald's instead of being pro-InandOut Burger, you know what I mean? Being anti-Fast Food instead of pro-Slow Food.

That last one is a real interesting phenomenon too. Slow Food started in Italy and it has a manifesto because it is a full on left-wing society. It's manifesto is that it has been set up pecifikly to counter fast food.

Imbeciles. Commie imbeciles.

It should have been set up pecifikly to celebrate indigenous authentic season ingredients and recipes.

That is all.

And that is enough.

Instead it goes the idiot step too far and immediately presumes the badness of anything else.

Last time I looked, McDonald's was not advertising the horror of Slow Food.

Why bother? People who run McDonald's franchises know that there is money to be made in their meals, even if all people don't eat all McDonald's all the time. There's room enough in this big ol' world for money to be made even if some folks never eat McDonald's.

Not something you can credit the Slow Food folks for. They are, sadly, lemon lipped fools Casandras who cannot contemplate of a world where a Slow Food enthusiast might grab a burger and fries from time to time. Which is peculiarly insane because that's the world they actually live in.

I am living proof.
