Personally I’m pleased that after many years of insulating folk from the consequences of their own follies, we’re beginning to see selection pressures re-establishing themselves. Anyone gullible enough to be taken in by Paltrow’s nonsense and consequently suffering harm therefrom is experiencing classic selection pressure from the environment. Ideally this harm will reduce their probability of passing on their genes, which will be good for homo sapiens as a whole.

So let’s hope Paltrow and her ilk continue to prey on the simple-minded and profoundly ignorant for years to come. It’s long overdue that we offset all the many save-people-from-their-own-stupidity safety-nets we’ve built into society over the last several decades. Such as coffee cups that warn the drinker that “this beverage may be hot.”
