Does anyone else agree: Western-society is ridiculous?

Now, don't get me wrong. America used to be a nice place in the 1950's and 1960's. The bottom-line is: America has turned into a corporation.

Our society is pervaded by fast-food and high obesity

or have chronic health-problems. We're actually the
2nd most unhealthy people in the Western-hemisphere.
Update 2: Was my analysis more or less correct? Your thoughts?
