I continue to be amazed at the power of ‘beliefs’ that can get a
person to starve themself to death! However, observing the
power of ‘beliefs’ on the leftists, etc. in our society is not that
much different from what this woman did, IMHO!
People are such sheep, they’ll line up behind any “cause” that is politically correct and might be something trendy or cool.
How the hell do you think we ended up on the wrong side of the socialism threshold?
Bill Whittle tells you why this is the greatest sentence ever written: “The love of theory is the root of all evil.” Whittle looks at the difference between fact and theory, and shows you the effects misguided theories have had on everything from warfare to climate science. Can Bill Whittle disprove global warming? What about Einstein’s theory of relativity? Find out.

I can’t hat all you people are mocking this poor woman’s deathy stupid.
This reminds me of story I read around 1973 called Beth Ann and Macrobioticism Macrobiotics was in vogue at the time, and the guy who wrote this story did not realize it at the time, but he was one of the first journalists to write about anorexia nervosa, although it wasn’t called that at the time. This also reminds me of Doug’s post about “love of theory”. She was obviously a troubled individual, another victim of the cultural revolution of the 1960′s.
