Is it the maniacal 3-year-old? Is it the screaming child who, if given the choice, would prefer to eat and drink cotton candy for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week? Well, if my anecdotal evidence is anywhere near accurate, then yes…the kiddy maniacs are in charge.
I can’t tell you how many little bastards I’ve seen at tables, fighting like hell, like little crabs with drool foaming out of their mouths, tears boiling up out of their puffed up eyes as they torture their parents into feeding them the universe’s worst excuses for food.
These are modern processed foods, poisons really. Let’s not call em food.
I mean, cause let’s be honest, these things, these processed foods are killing us. You know, the ones you find in the middle of the supermarket, the ones with the enriched flours, the sugars, the corn syrups, the endless lists of ingredients which read more like license plates than actual foods, the ones the food giants spend millions on to find the so-called “bliss point” that will get us hooked and keep us hooked.
These quasi “foods” are the ones are kids are addicted to, because, well, let’s be honest, most of us are too. So it’s our fault, but now we have these monster children whipping up levels of fear, hurricane force winds of ferociousness that frighten parents to the core. So what do we do? We give them the poison so we don’t have to fight them and to avoid making a scene.
We are so fucking spoiled. We have 870 million kids in the world suffering from chronic undernourishment and in the West, our little spoiled bastards of kids are fighting us, like squirrels battling over autumn’s last acorn, over every single goddamned, monotonous meal we serve them.
But it’s not their fault. It’s our fault. People want their kids to be their best friends. Parents are scared their kids are going to starve. Really? They might starve because they skipped one meal? How sick are we? They’re not going to fucking starve…they’re going to get fat.
Because you’re too scared to take the battle with your kid, because you don’t want to hurt their feelings, because you, not them, but YOU, are scared they’re going to starve, you feed them these modern day, taxpayer subsidized poisons. Hotdogs, bread, hamburgers, more bread, past, cereal, more bread, donuts, more bread, bagels, more bread, pizza, and oh yeah, more bread. Juices, the apple, the orange, the naked, the this, the that. The crackers, the cookies, need I go on?
We’re setting our kids up for disaster.
So because we don’t know how to parent, or maybe because we ourselves never got good, healthy food, we’re destroying our kids, we’re wasting food, we’re creating little spoiled punks who think that as long as they kick and scream and cry they’ll get whatever they want in life. These are the people who will be running our world one day. Imagine that. These little fake food junkies. We’re putting our future in their little chubby hands.
If you think the leaders of this demented planet have screwed us up, just wait. Wait until you see what happens when the little turds we’re now pumping up with these government sanctioned counterfeit excuses for foods get their reigns on the power.
So bask in the present and avoid the difficulties of real parenting today. Plop down some poison on your kids’ plates and enjoy the peace and quiet and their smiles, while they last.
