I’ve Never Understood the Hunger Strike
Judging by the number of hunger strikes for a multitude of causes, the technique must have some value on focusing attention on the target issue. But, for the life of me I can’t figure out why it should work. If it were up to me, I’d not lift a hand to dissuade the hunger striker, and I would not cave in to his demands. I’d admire someone’s misplaced determination, and then I’d wish them a nice day and walk away. The way I figure it, if someone wants to starve himself to death, so be it. I don’t suppose we’d be so lucky to have Cindy whither away. She’s not dedicated enough to sacrifice her own life for her cause. I suspect this is her latest gimmick to get garner some media attention.
