I find it quite fascinating how the use of language changes over time. In a previous article, I highlighted the euphemistic treadmill according to which the term “retard” is now offensive, and retards are nowadays called “special”. The problem is, of course, that the underlying reality is unpleasant. Relabelling anything does not change it, which is a key aspect of why supposed high verbal intelligence is simply a different way of saying that someone is stupid.
Sometimes, meanings get lost. Maybe you’ve come across the phrase that someone is “spinning” in his grave. This is quite nonsensical. The original idiom is, “turn in his grave”. Traditionally, people are buried face up in a coffin. From six feet under, they look upwards, observing us from below. If they turn in their grave, they are imagined to turn around so that they no longer have to see what is going on up there in clown world.
Another phrase is “little people”. The dictionary that is part of my third-world-grade Apple macOS defines it as “the ordinary people in a country, organization, etc. who do not have much power.” Yet, this is quite a change in meaning. Originally, there was nothing poetic about this phrase. From historical records we know that average height increased steadily, with a dip during the Industrial Revolution, if I recall correctly. However, the rulers and warriors were always tall. Hundreds of years ago, you had kings who were 6’3″ or 6’4″. Henry VIII is said to have been 6’4″ tall. This is why we sometimes use a phrase like “regal height”, i.e. height befitting a monarch.
When the ruler and warrior castes back in the days referred to commoners, they didn’t speak of little people in order to refer to their relative unimportance. I think quite the opposite was true as there was a clear understanding that the work of farmers and craftsmen was very important for maintaining society. Instead, they saw that they were towering over commoners, frequently being a solid foot taller than them. Thus, the aristocracy as well as the warrior caste called them “little people” because that was what they were: little people.
A primary reason for why someone grows into a short adult is lack of nutrition. Thus, in post-Maoist China, one generation is taller than the next because, finally, people get to eat meat and starvation is a thing of the past. In order to maximize your genetic potential, you need good nutrition, which includes fat and proteins. In the olden days, the little people were little people because meat used to be a luxury. Even a few decades ago, members of the lower classes could not afford to eat meat every day. That’s were phrases like “Sunday roast” came from. I grew up in a relatively affluent environment and we had meat fairly frequently, my mom didn’t just serve roast on Sunday, but “Sunday roast” and that usage harkens back to a time when people could only afford to eat meat once a week or so. Thus, it was a special occasion. In fact, referring to roast as Sunday roast was a pleonasm as no roast was served on any other day.
Meat tastes great. In fact, if you told me that you don’t like meat, I’d wonder if something is wrong with you. Even little Timmy knows that: children are known to have a distaste for “healthy” food, i.e. vegetables. Timmy may not want to eat his steamed broccoli, but you can rest assured that he will not refuse a nice piece of sirloin steak. The mere idea is utterly ludicrous, which leads me to believe that humans instinctively know that meat is healthy and good for us. Otherwise, we would not like it. Evolution would have made us avoid it.
Foregoing meat and other sources of protein is bizarre. Yet, there are more and more vegans and vegetarians around. In the liberal utopia Sweden, school lunches are currently reformed and more and more kids now no longer get served animal protein for lunch. I guess it’s for the sake of saving the climate or some other noble goal. I think it’s a crime against those children, considering that the state deprives them of important nutrients. Anyway, enough of Sweden. Veganism and Vegetarianism are mind viruses that have affected the entire liberal West, not just our friends in the Humanitarian Superpower.
Have you ever met someone who is not just a “salon vegetarian” who demonstrably picks he meat-free option during a team lunch but instead fully buys into this ideology and avoids meat altogether? Those aren’t healthy people. They would need supplements to get their proteins, but that’s just added complexity, and following fixed schedules is not everyone’s cup of tea. Vegans are even worse. Spent an hour on YouTube (or BitChute) and look up videos of vegans: those people look easily ten to twenty years older than they are. Some lose their teeth at an undue early age. Others develop osteoporosis.
Even worse are parents who raise their kids as vegans or vegetarians. This is downright child abuse as it will stunt their growth. The consequence is that these kids will grow up quite short. Sometimes, lenient parenting is a confounding factor. I once knew a (white) girl who was very short. She was barely 5″ tall. She was quite attractive. Her teeth were fucked, though, and her height just struck me as absurd. As she later told me that when she was ten or eleven, she stopped eating meat and also developed body dysphoria. According to her words, she subsisted on an apple a day at times. That’s why she ended up being the height of a midget. Great ass, though.
Overall, I view veganism and vegetarianism as manifestations of slave mentality, or maybe better call it cattle mentality. The connection to an earlier time where our rulers were tall and strong and commoners short can’t be any more obvious. I’d say that no sane person would argue that it’s better to be short rather than tall, baring extremes like being 7″, and even that is better than being 4″5′. Yet, if you make lifestyle choices that will lead to you or your children not being able to maximize your genetic potential, it can only mean that you hate yourself so much that you want to have a visual reminder of your physical inferiority every time you look in the mirror.
The wish to deprive yourself of invaluable nutrients in order to weaken yourself is pure self-hatred. Those people want to be short and weak and unhealthy. It may be an expression of their desire to be physically inferior to those who rule over them. I’m now wildly speculating, but maybe this is related to some kind of romanticism and a yearning for a time in which there was order, where a tall king ruled over little, and sickly-looking commoners. Today, we have a crisis of leadership in the West, so having many Westerners deliberately weakening themselves physically (and spiritually, too, but that would be a topic for another article) could simply be an expression of their innate desire for a strong leader. There is a void and eventually someone will fill it. The existence of sickly vegans and vegetarians is therefore just another symptom of the fundamental weakness and rudderlessness of the West. Those people are simply preparing themselves to be ruled over again as they, clearly, cannot even effectively rule over their own body.
