Health witch hunt going overboard in Asa Eric Daughter’s novel “The Plague” – Sveriges Radio

– The obesity epidemic as the title tells. On the plane, it is a neo-fascist party called Health Party who has taken over power. The party has health and welfare, and a moderate waist circumference as their major issue, says Jenny Aschenbrenner who have read the book. At the individual level it is about a university researchers who are trying to deal with the fact that everything in college is all about weight.

A good dystopia be the time to be right close to reality, is this it?

– A little both. I first thought it was childish, but after a while I felt the plot is not completely unbelievable when it comes to health Party’s arguments.
