Dwell in the wilderness through a self-supporting life, living off the land by the sweat of your brow. There is something to be said for making a difficult decision like that, and there is no doubt another level of education in it as well.
    Yeah, but it's really hard to go dumpster-diving in the wilderness.
    All kidding aside, I agree with your entire post.

    Why is it that the "free-thinkers" of the world are also the most narrow-minded? If they want to be jobless dumpster-divers, that's their choice, and it's fine with me. But if I choose to be a productive member of society with a 9-to-5 job, that's not fine with them.

    Ash is 24! He looks like he is 16 and acts like it too.

    I dunno why. Same with religious fanatics. Ok, great..pray all you want, but don't belittle my view points on religion and I won't belittle yours. It's just that easy.

    I can understand the viewpoints of some people who want to conserve energy, live off the land, eat home grown veggies, etc.. I totally applaud people who do it. But, don't speak of my lifestyle like I'm some leech of the land and causing world destruction. If we all decided to live in the woods and do as they speak, our civilization would be going backward, and I don't think it would be a good thing.

    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    a vegan pet cat
    I love that. Let's force a domesticated predator to go against it's remaining natural insticts and eat vegatables only, not to mention not meet it's dietary needs.

    I know...people are idiots!
    Cats are not human. Cats, being total carnivores, have special nutritional needs in certain respects when compared to humans.

    I'm getting a little hungry. I tried to go outside for a snack but the sun has already gone down. Guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow.

    I was busy reading the post by Sienna (presuming it was really her) and just "came to" for this episode. It's cat abuse to make it be vegan! That cat will DIE. Dammit, they shouldn't be allowed to have a cat or dog. If you want a vegan, get a damned guinea pig! Do you think I feel passionately about it? Yes, I do!
