In a more general sense there is a specific health and vitality revelation, a revelation of what the body wants, which can harden into a very dogmatic and even intolerant rigid world view

Health wellness as the right path and anyway staying from it as a pervert and a degenerate. @constant escape this is what I was getting at the other day btw.

The difficulty is that, the revelation is real and staying between those tramlines grants real rewards and becomes self reinforcing better skin more confidence shiny eyes

today the ’Ndrangheta is by far the most powerful criminal group in Italy and one of the richest in the world. A study by the Demoskopita Research Institute in 2013 estimated that it was more financially powerful than Deutsche Bank and McDonald’s combined, with an annual turnover of €53bn (£44bn).
Calabrians have eclipsed the Sicilians and Neopolitans at last.
Maybe not for long.

Great example of the overnight turn to Nazism. Still don't understand what it's all about really

From 2002 to 2012, the main focus of Red Ice's content was conspiracy theories such as aliens, 9/11, the Illuminati, and Freemasonry. In 2012, the outlet shifted to concentrate on ideas of race, and especially to the idea of the white genocide conspiracy theory in response to what the couple perceived as "anti-white sentiment" coinciding with the Black Lives Matter movement.[

it seems like as far as "the state" is concerned there is a sweet spot of wellness - whereby the individual doesn't clog up the smooth workings of capitalism. and the fact is that most people (massive generalisation) don't quite fulfill that criteria... so, frustratingly, that's like a very off-putting de facto ceiling.

so on the one hand there's that dilemma - do i not do something because i am told/expected/propagandised to do it? the mature thing is to be able to do something for one's good in spite of being instructed to do it - and that can grate.

HOWEVER - once one starts to really get granular and interested in what wellness means on a more profound level it is intrinsically against the existing order. clean air/organic food/eating less or no meat and from a psychological health point-of-view not exploiting other people etc (the whole pathogenic sin argument)

what i don't accept is audre lorde's "self-care" idea whereby wellness is political act to preserve an individual who believes themselves to be under attack by the state. presupposes that the system actively wants to crush some people - and i've never been a fan of conspiracy theories.

I'm not thinking in terms of evil capitalism. More in terms of how the wellness lifestyle involves a tracking of the light and how that can rigidify into dogma and intolerance
