Two days back I posted these questions: What's your view of healthy and meaningful living? Who are for and Who are against this principle? Only one person's response I've received so far. Do you have any idea of the reason for so disappointing response? Are Americans, citizens of, as I view it, the most advanced civilization, disinterested in the principle of healthy and meaningful living? Or, are they afraid of this very principle?

Paul, I agree fully. The question was not a bad question, but simply too broad and general. Specific questions about healthy and meaningful living would definitely get a lot more responses.
I agree with what was noted above. I wish that I could have answered this question, but it is too vague. I simply did not know how to answer it. With the two questions coming from Paul, I could easily answer these.
This is what I assumed as well. Vague/general questions tend to get passed up because it makes the author seem unfocused. Often times HubPages will delete such questions because they're better suited to the forums where a larger discussion can happen
Are they really too vague to be answered? You've left both the questions unanswered, which points to intellectual immaturity unbecoming to a sensible human, I'm afraid to say.
I must admit that it is the reason that I did not respond to the question. I was unsure of what was being asked or where it was going.
But what's your view of healthy and meaningful living? The question of whether you're for or against the principle of living a healthy and meaningful life also remains unanswered, doesn't it?
I approve of balanced diets and enjoyable exercises. But I don't think religions fit in with the principle of healthy and meaningful living.
By healthy and meaningful living I mean a way of life that's both rational and sensible. Whether a particular culture, e.g. matrimony or same-sex marriages, fits in with this principle is of course debatable, and I welcome that debate.
Actually, being a hedonist isn't wrong. In an ideal world, everyone would be healthy, beautiful, and in their prime. Everything they do would be for fun. How do we go about achieving this?
Ha ha! Yeah, weekends are best spent w. livelier diversions :)
Sorry for 'the phrasing'.I welcome every sensible reply.I approve of seeking pleasure and luxury in life.An austere,unhappy life isn't meaningful.But of course pleasure at any cost can't fit in with the principle of healthy and meaningful living.
You're the first and only person,and only American too, to my knowledge to give a straightforward answer and stand for the principle at issue.I think the healthy and meaningful living presupposes a healthy attitude to sex and matrimony too.
By healthy and meaningful living I mean a sensible way of life. In order to lead such a life, you need,besides healthy food and keep-fit exercises, healthy attitudes to sex,marriage,etc. I don't think you need lead a life of austerity for this.
I didn't see the original question either. Sometimes very thought-provoking questions are overlooked because responses take more time to compose. Often questions will only get 1 -3 answers.
Belief in God is silly.We don't need such things to be wise enough not to rush into an action in non-emergency.The luxury of marriage and family is silly,senseless,and barbaric,hence fails to fit in with the principle of healthy,meaningful living.
Who is "we?" I speak for myself and disregard generalizations. If you choose to dismiss the things that are important to me, that's your choice, . Questions should be asked w/ an open mind not bitter judgement. How do you answer your own question?
You are free to send email, if you like.
I don't think there's any reason people that stand for the principle of healthy and meaningful living shouldn't 'feel comfortable answering' my questions, failure to answer which might be an evidence, I'm afraid to say, of intellectual immaturity.
I don't think your answer testifies to your clear concept of healthy and meaningful living. What's your view of the institution of marriage or same-sex marriages? Do you think such things are meaningful? Could you give reasons to support your view?
Prakash, you need to lighten up. Don't treat life as a classroom, it's more 'elastic' than that. As for same sex marriages, less said the better.
Good point, alancaster! If this question is posed with only one right answer, then I'd suggest Prakash move it to the forums and learn some humility.
alan,you seem afraid of a serious attitude to life. I believe we can learn as long as we live;thus,life can be viewed as ' a classroom'.An elaboration of 'it's more "elastic"' is sought.Your unwillingness to comment on same-sex marriage is obscure.
