Pruning Away the Flab
A pledge to eradicate malnutrition by 2030, made by the corporate stooges and boot-filling bandits euphemistically known as world leaders, is proving approximately as effective as can be expected. Rates of malnutrition have increased in thirteen countries, while stunting of emotional, social and cognitive development is expected to contribute to a healthy public perspective on social progress in Malawi and Niger until half-way through the twenty-second century. Complicating the picture is the fact that mere quantities of food are not the only problem; access to clean water and good hygienic practices are also factors, which carries sinister implications for corporate democratisation of water supplies and the targeting of educational resources at the financially deserving. At least we may hope that by 2030 the lesser breeds may have progressed a little further towards the perspective of Food Bank Britain, whereby malnutrition and poor hygiene are seen to be moral failings in the idle and dependent. It works out so much cheaper that way.
