Wisdom can certainly falter among the enlightened. All of us are prone to succumbing to outrage. It requires conscious vigilance to avoid falling victim to it, especially when it becomes socially unacceptable to stand in defiance of the mob's expectations. In those cases not joining the mob isn't enough. One must speak the perspective of opposition. If my own wisdom falters in such a scenario, I hope someone is there to say, "Hey, wait a minute!"

Torches and pitchforks cannot occupy a space in which wisdom prevails.
Yes, but unfortunately, torches and pitchforks usually drown out reason and wisdom.

I think "without contact" is a crazy overreaction, but observation clearly isn't working. I agree with the idea of sending them on a camp for a while, to see if professionals can trim their weight down, and also to see how they're affected by being separated from their parents. Stress can make people gain weight, too....

Sometimes outrage is something to rise to the level of, a peak of wisdom.

So can be pride or remorse, but it is not good to base one's actions on having succumbed to any of these things. Emotions can be valid, but the framework of reason is what me must use to integrate them into our behavior in proper measure.

i think it's just dreadful personally. i don't think it's the way to resolve obesity...
and, yeah, even just walking about here i do see many underfed kids. except there is no social stigma against them...

do you think that the government should have this type of control?

Wait, so they are solely blaming the parents? What about the schools not giving them proper nutrition or maybe the kids snuck food. They shouldn't punish the parents for something that has so many variables.

I think fast food shouldn't be sold the kids under 18 without the survey of their parents.

One of my friends has a very spoiled 5 year old boy, whenever he gets mad at something he starts crying earsplittingly, and she takes him to a fastfood restaurant and buys him a kids menu. The boy already wears 8 years old clothings.
Fast food makes children grow fatter quicker than hell, like hormone injected tomatoes.
I think in a very short time, fast food will become the main cause of death around the world. And i can't understand why parents can not see it coming. Even the governments ignore it, as you said, they still let canteens to sell unhealthy food.

The article was kind of vague. There are a lot of different factors to consider before one should take children away from everything they know. They were in a monitored facility where food was controlled, but how strict was it? I mean even if someone is eating nothing but healthly home-cooked meals but they don't have the appropriate portions, he or she won't really see an improvement (unless its all raw fruits and vegetables, but I highly doubt that was their primary diet). I don't know about anywhere else, but in the United States, truly healthy food is NOT inexpensive. It is near impossible for a lower-income family to get proper nutrition. Even if the government gives you food, theyre mostly vouchers for junky foods.

^
I live in England and eating healthily is more affordable than eating unhealthily (where I live at least).

I've worked out that if I gained 35 lb and had to maintain it I would have to eat an extra two months worth of calories every year. If all those calories had to be nutritious it would be a potentially expensive diet but this isn't the case. I wonder if this might skew the perception of healthy eating.
