Do You Believe Hunger Strikes Truly Accomplish Anything?

    I see that stars are protesting something and to make a point, they go on a hunger strike. Prisoners sometimes are angry over their treatment and decide to stop eating. Some feel laws should be changed and make their point by refusing to eat.

    Do hunger strikes give you pause? Do you really care?

    Yes they help you lose weight

    Perhaps the "stars" should go out and feed the hungry rather than trying to be hungry. Prisoners have limited means of protesting.

    NO, I do not care one iota re/"stars" and would depend on what prisoners are protesting.

    While I support people's right to protest in this manner if they choose to, I think it's dumb.

    Who are they hurting? Themselves.

    Do you think the people they're protesting against actually care if they go hungry or not? Nope.

    In this context, does a good IPA or Leffe Tripel still count as the "liquid" when on a hunger strike?

    If so, it may be worth it for awhile.

    Rub a Dub

    I wish I could find a cause that I am interested in supporting this way, I could stand to lose about 25 pounds.

    One person decides not to eat anymore until one of the issues on the planet he doesn't agree with or changed? Who cares.

  • minimus

    Yep, I never understood the concept
