Lesson of the week

The past seven days have brought news that ‘Brits are among the ugliest people in the world’ besides Hugo Chávez raising concerns over obesity – an issue that can apparently only be tackled through socialism – in an attempt to preserve Venezuela’s reputation for producing individuals of exceptional physical beauty. It’s therefore clearly apparent that there’s a link here to explore regarding the influence of the certain type of political regime upon the aesthetic appeal of a country’s population. Charles Hardy attempts as much here, but pretty much fails by not extending his argument beyond the fact that Venezuela has a largely mixed-race population, which has little (or basically nothing) to do with the nation’s socialist government.
