I’m a vacillating asshole

Oftentimes I start writing an entry, sometimes going the distance, and then decide not to use it. My reasoning for dropping the entry varies. Most times it’s because the entry felt derivative, or just wasn’t as “funny” as I thought when I started writing (which really says something, because I laugh at shit I really “shouldn’t”…) Tonight I started an entry on anger, because I was quite frankly very angry. A friend of mine has been all but abandoned by her husband, and I’m the one left picking up the slack. That makes me angry for LOTS of reasons, and I listed them out in short detail. But I’m not posting that, because it felt too personal for here. Yes, I use this to vent, but I have always tried to keep my personal problems out of the public eye. Call it a personality quirk.

Newspeak to the rescue. Which lead to 1984. Which lead to Nazism. Which lead to corporatism. Which lead me to believe that all social academics are full of shit, and have no clue exactly what they are talking about. Which is great, because if you can make a yearly salary bullshitting people, more power to you. But let’s go back to Nazism for a second. I find the Nazi phenomenon fascinating, especially in light of its enmity towards Communism. It takes a long hard look to be able to tell the difference between the two. I kept reading anyways, when I came across something that surprised me, and perversely made me giggle (OK, OK, most things that make me giggle are perverse; gotta problem with that?)

# Animal rights[42]
# Environmentalism[43] [44][45]: In June 1935, the Reichsnaturschutzgesetz (Reich Nature Protection Law) was enacted. It was valid in West Germany till 1976. Some historians have either argued that this law was the symptom of an actual interest of the Nazi regime in the preservation of the natural world, or that it was not a Nazi law at all, but rather the nonideological expression of previous ideas. Others have contested these views, and claim that the Reichsnaturschutzgesetz reflected instead key elements of both progressive preservationism of the 1930s, such as the concepts of natural monuments and nature protection areas, and of Nazism, such as racialism and nationalism.[46]

Well, well, well, ladies and gentlemen, we have a precedent when it comes to Environmentalists and PETA acting like assholes.
