People who notice everything but remain silent are to be feared.

I mean, the evidence speaks for itself.
Things’ll get brighter
Some day, yeah
We’ll get it together and we’ll get it all done
When your head is much lighter
Some day, yeah
We’ll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
When the world is much brighter
Guess what I saw today.
ohana means family. family means having your life choices questioned and your flaws pointed out to you
Me: Hello Corndog!
Corndog: AGH! Don’t Eat Me! I’m terrible for the environment and you’d be contributing to a system that will lead to the ultimate destruction of trillions of dollars in infrastructure!
Me: You’re right…OMNOMNOMNOMNOM
Look…basically every time I spend money on a non-necessary thing (like, for example, a hot shower or an artichoke or a flight to Los Angeles) I am contributing negatively to the world. I am, by omission, not spending money saving lives that would be very easy to save. This is objectively true.
I can do three things about it:
1. Attempt to defend myself with lots of logic and mental gymnastics.
2. Ignore it completely
3. Recognize the fact that, y’know, I do some things that affect the world negatively. But I’ve gotta live my life and do things that I enjoy.
I see a lot of #1 in my ask box right now; People having lots of opinions on meat eating and why I’m wrong about it. I can’t help but feel like their opinions aren’t based in objective examination of the world, but in attempting to defend a behavior they enjoy. (This is not, by any means, the majority of my asks…others are criticizing me for eating meat, others are agreeing with me, others are telling me that they need to eat meat for medical reasons (which, good lord, I am /not/ criticizing.)
Anyhow, I think #3 is the high road here…even though it sounds kinda gross “I know meat eating is bad but I do it anyway because I am weak and/or busy.” Does this make me a bad person? No, it does not. It just makes me a slightly less good person.
The idea that every one of your actions and behaviors could fit perfectly with your values system seems completely impossible to me.
