second. egoDriven modren civilized people have forever been trashing tribal people and over dramatasing their small faults (just so they could claim they were superior to them) so they could feel ok about their disgusting behaviour of killin them and taking their land and slaving the ones that were left. and the brain washed their people to believe the same.(i'v herd it all before, your like a broken record... it is a fact the people just repeat what they have been brainwashed to believe by their teachers)... they still do it today to each other. they always blame others when ever they have any problems in their own lives and hardly ever take responsiblity for what they do in casing their own problems. look around... people are constantly trashing other people for stupid reasons.
third. there is a respectful way of raping the land and a disrespectfull way! there is an egoDriven way of treating the land and a heartDriven way. and while tribal people did what they did. they did it in very small numbers, wheich is waaaay more respectfull than the egoDriven modern civilized who breed like a vcirus and rape the land out of control. and tribal people all over the world always mainatined a small size and never grew out of proportion. that is a egoDriven act, to breed out of control.
i gotta go now..... but i'll be back...
I actually respect you heaps for coming back and discussing your point of view. (Makes me know you're not some sneaky spam bot like a lot of the 1 post people that sign up on here).
I totally get where you are coming from. But, I just don't see how one's ego can be blamed for being fat. (As I said before, it's very likely that their are specific cases where this is the case). As a over-arching philosophical basis for modern day fatty fats stomping around in modern civilisation needing their ever increasing supplies of sugar to feed their ego driven impulses to rape and pillage and destroy everything while kicking back with a bag of chips chortling at a documentary about starving miltary forces in North Korea (just keeping it relevant), I can totally get the hook of where you are coming from.
But from a, hi you're overweight, you need to change your ego, here's an action plan/strategy on how to change your ego by doing a,b,c through to x,y,z, I'm not sure you'll see real results. Though any program will get results from someone who believes it enough (pseudo effect). So from that perspective, sure you'll help people that believe it. I just think that the people that will sign up for it, are not the type of people that would get a benefit from it. It'll be the desperately silly people that overly trust programs which catchy phrases and simple messages. Sure I don't want to ruin your eagerness to help people deal with trying to change their lifestyles, and any help that you give people struggling with obesity from your work is great and I totally commend you for it. I just think that there's a lot more effective ways to help people.
However, I'll take a step back and say I haven't read your actual book or heard any of your talks, so maybe it's all in the detail not explained in your post and maybe the ego and tribal bit is just the hook to get people to sign up or listen before you get into the boring details about required lifestyle changes and better nutritional and exercise choices.
