Big Mac thoughts

There’s nothing wrong with choosing not to go to McDonalds, but there is something wrong with judging people who do and not understanding the broader social issues at play. The same goes for watching NASCAR, listening to country music, or any other proxies to talk about class and other social issues.

Some people go deeper down the rabbit hole to further mask these proxies. “But McDonalds is unhealthy!” “NASCAR is bad for the earth!” “Some country musicians say dumb stuff!” While all may be true statements, I find it hard to believe that turning one’s nose at people eating fast food is really what people think is the best way to address a public health issue.
