Physic my Sensibilities and make them Super

I'm reading a book on metaphysics for the first time in my life and find the subject to be indescribably beautiful, cogent, and whole. Philosophy departments should mandate the teaching of metaphysics. I certainly feel cheated of something ordered and good. Why, Berkeley? Why!?

An Aryan Nation of Different Kind

This seems particularly reprehensible. It's fine to want a trim belly, it's fine to be fit -- but to mandate that employees maintain a certain girth until the age of 74 or else employers face fines?

Arg! So many things are wrong with this approach! The neglect of the soul which - if properly ordered - would not indulge in gluttony, clinical sterility encountering living being, government intrusion of personal privacy. . .

That government is on my "Poo-list."

And.

Plato would not approve.
