Why is it that someone who went to medical school for years, and learned about scientific method and thinking, upon leaving said institution, think that he can learn nothing new?
Why would someone, a scholar, act as if the world and our understanding of it is static and does not evolve continuously?
Do these questions seem like they don't at all describe the actions of a scholar, a doctor?
To me these are just the arrogant insecure defense mechanisms of the normal man, as well educated as he may be, is exhibiting the same silly tendencies as just another person on the street.
What makes my information any less valid than his opinions? There was once a time, as cliche as this reference is, we thought the world was flat. People who believed that was not so were ridiculed. Those people blinded by their deeply engrained beliefs were not helping anyone by trying to uphold old, and unsubstantiated beliefs.
Back to the point I am sure you all know I am trying to make by this series of rhetorical questions.What, and before I ask this, separate yourself from your preconceptions and everything you have been told. Use your own mind.
What sense does it make that something that alters a natural function, causes measurable, quantifiable, damage to the body, be so widely accepted and be so popular among the entire population, and even endorsed by healthcare "experts?"
Why are those who have never even tried this lifestyle those who are often deemed as the most credible?
Why is it that people that have lived this lifestyle often report having never been so happy and healthy.
Why is it that people who live free of footwear report a shockingly lower amount of injuries and health problems?
Why is it that the only people who say we need shoes are those who enslave themselves to those very shoes?
Why is it that people who move in and use their feet in a natural way, have personally experienced the benefits both short term and long term, are seen as the radicals in society?
Why is it that we are the ones that need to go out of our way to explain ourselves?
I believe that it is the ones who want us to stomp around in clunky foot bricks that should have to prove themselves to us. I believe it is they who are the radicals, who want to change something that is so natural and intuitively right.
I can give you reasons all day long why not to wear shoes.
If you want me to wear shoes you better be able to come up with some reasons for it, because it is me, it is us, barefooters, who are using our feet as they were designed to be used. If you want someone to divert from what is natural you better be able to support your point of view. You also need to understand that what you feel is not what we feel when we walk barefoot.
Ever broke an arm, leg, or other bone? Ever notice how after the cast is removed the muscles on the limb have atrophied and you must rebuild its strength? What is the shoe but a silly flashy foot cast. It will, and does weaken the foot, creating a dependency on shoes.
Perhaps, and this is something I dearly hope is not true, perhaps, those people who do all they can to counter this revolution in health and general wellbeing do so because they stand to lose money on a healthy populace. Who needs a podiatrist if everyone has healthy feet?
I will leave you with that.
