It's interesting (and runs contrary to this essay) that our left-hemispheric modern culture goes to extremes to accommodate unusual people, like the overweight. Such tolerance, though, is born of the same dogmatism that caused the Nazis to euthanize the disabled. It's part of the postmodern religion of destroying all poles of the binary that have traditionally been privileged, which facilely shades off into destroying anything traditional, like the traditional belief that healthy is better than unhealthy . . . fit better than fat.
