Lots of hypocrisy in the health care reforms displayed by the supposed followers of Christianity.
“He saw in this undeniably troubling picture an allegory of America’s failure to learn any deep lessons from that tragic day, to change or reform as a nation: ”The young people in Mr Hoepker’s photo aren’t necessarily callous. They’re just American.” - Frank Rich
Maybe Frank Rich is right in his assessment of this photograph (one of the most controversial photographs from 9/11), and maybe this explanation can apply to our view of food systems, obesity, education reform, health care reform, etc. We never seem to learn from the past, and we insist on continuing down the same self-destructive paths - both as a nation and as individuals, failing to learn from our mistakes and from the mistakes of others while the rest of the world surpasses us.

People are fed by the food industry, which pays no attention to health, and are treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food.
