OP makes this point clearly:
It is all about this spinach!
Some people say spinach is a gateway vegetable. They say "Oh sure, if everyone eats spinach and gets strong like Popeye, the next thing you know
they'll be making eggplant parmesan and fois gras!!"
These "gateway vegetable" theories are absurd. Spinach is a plant that grows, Popeye takes it from the can, and eats it. Eggplant parmesan, has to
cooked, prepared, etc. That's very different. But you see, the "War on Vegetables" is very very profitable. And Popeye knows this.
In fact, the War on Veggies is so hugely profitable, especially from the perspective of "currency of control" and "Currency of power", that it is
easy to see why Popeye makes this his primary value.
Please note that Popeye at times has no money (watch the cartoons) but he always has spinach on him.
Also, Popeye types of this day and age (years after ww2 which was Popeye's big conflict) are labelled as "potential terrorist" not just for owning
spinach (the simplest vegetable) but also for having the wrong tattoos like Popeye, or for having a disability like Popeye, or just for fighting even
in self defense when attacked by thugs like Bluto! The point is, Popeye himself, is an anti-American symbol, according to the powers of today: He is
a lover of plants and vegetables foremost, and all else derives from that. As he says "I am what I am, and that's all that I am." Sage words
HAIL POPEYE! CAESAR OF TODAY! HAIL!
