Hello I’m Alan Junior and I have a radical idea. Currently it costs more to be healthy. Junk food is cheap and easy, TV is free, lazy entertainment. Healthy food might not differ that much in price, but it takes much more to prepare, and buying healthy food already prepared is the expensive part. Gym memberships cost an arm and a leg, and you’re usually locked in. To get out, you actually have to pay MORE: a cancellation fee. Even to transfer a membership involves a fee.
A world where healthiness is discouraged and unhealthiness is encouraged is madness and leads to general unhappiness. This should end.
TAX THE UNHEALTHY.
Place taxes on unhealthy food and the kinds of media that promote laziness or a sedentary lifestyle.
SUBSIDISE THE HEALTHY.
Fresh, healthy food should be subsidised. It should be readily available and easy to prepare. Activities that involve activeness: Sport, Gym, etc, should be subsidised. Gym membership should be relatively low cost. So low you may never need to cancel or transfer.
I believe in a world where there is less suffering, more health, more happiness. That’s where I want to live.
