Members of the Paleo-Game Cult are about to be arrested by the government and thrown in a FEMA death camp for beliving in the paleo diet. At least that is what the Paleo-Game Cult is saying more or less. Even conspiracy theorists outside of the Paleo-Game Cult are worried about being rounded up. I’m excited that the government is going to get rid of the Paleo-Game Cult. Finally, without their interference, the MRM will start getting things done. There’s just one really big problem. What the Paleo-Game Cult is saying here isn’t true. Let’s look at what really happened.
All of this crazy mess started when Steve Cooksey, a resident of North Carolina, started a paleo diet blog. He did more than just blog. He sold a paleo diet advice service. He had two services, one for $149 per month and the other for $197 per month. The North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition recived a complaint about Steve Cooksey and had to investigate. The Paleo-Game Cult will lie and tell you the government is after paleo dieters for knowing the “truth”. The reality is that in North Carolina you can’t sell diet advice without a license. Writing a free blog is a different story as the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition explains.
The North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition has a duty to investigate all complaints that it receives. On January 13, 2012 a written complaint was submitted to the NCBDN alleging that Steve Cooksey was providing nutrition care services in North Carolina without a license. Mr. Cooksey is not a licensed dietitian/nutritionist in the state of North Carolina. On January 18, 2012 the NCBDN contacted Mr. Cooksey to inform him of the complaint and to seek further information. That same day, Mr. Cooksey made the disclaimer on his blog more prominent and took down his diabetes support services, for which he was charging a fee. After further review, on April 9, 2012 Mr. Cooksey was sent a certified letter, stating that the NCBDN was satisfied that he had come into substantial compliance with the requirements of the law and that the NCBDN was closing the complaint it received against him. Mr. Cooksey signed for this letter. Currently, there is no active complaint or action against Mr. Cooksey on file with the NCBDN.
As you can see what was at issue was that Steve Cooksey was SELLING paleo diet advice without a being a licensed dietitian/nutritionist. It had nothing to do with his blog or his “non-mainstream” diet views like the Paleo-Game Cult says. Once Steve Cooksey stopped selling diet advice the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition no longer cared about him. As the owner of my own business, I understand this. When you start selling a product or service, there are a lot more laws invovled because of fraud issues and many other issues. Even a pure libertarian government would have many of these laws since one of the fundamental reasons for government is to fight fraud. It’s no surprise that the Paleo-Game Cult would be against such laws. Given that most of them are either unemployed or underemployed and incapable of starting a legtimate business like I have, the only way for them to make money is with businesses or employment of questionable legality and/or questionable ethics. I suspect that the original complaint to the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition about Steve Cooksey came from a former client of his that realized the paleo diet was wrong and selling services based on it is a scam.
Now that we know that facts about what happened, why is the Paleo-Game Cult (and the greater conspiracy theorist community) lying about this? This is not a trival question because I have noticed that most things the Paleo-Game Cult says turn out to be lies with less than 30 seconds of google searching. Nothing that the Paleo-Game Cult says can be trusted. This goes beyond just being insane. They lie. The Paleo-Game Cult wants to be rebellous, but without all the messy problems that real revolutionaries have to deal with like death and injury. Thus, they make up fake persecution stories like this to pretend the government is out to get them. I bet many of them want to end up in a FEMA death camp or at least prison. That way they can claim to be “political prisoners” and get three hots and a cot for free. The latter has to be really compelling for the Paleo-Game Cult since they have so many troubles with employment.
The Paleo-Game Cult wants nothing to do with something that would actually challenge the government like fighting against feminism. Not only would that mean they would have to get up and do something, but because women benefit from feminism the government might actually go after them. Plus, it’s not like the Paleo-Game Cult cares about fighting feminism despite the anti-feminism they claim. Objectively, they are feminist, and they are only using the MRM for recruiment. They don’t care about the men who lose their kids because of divorce courts. They don’t care about men who are thrown in jail due to impossible child support orders. They don’t care about men who are victims of paternity fraud. They don’t care about men who are victims of the false sexual harassment industry or the false rape industry or the false abuse industry. They don’t care about men who lose their jobs or can’t get jobs because of affirmative action. The Paleo-Game Cult would rather make up a bullshit story about being persecuted than do anything to stop real feminist atrocities against men.
