Cut the crap

In the picture: Excerpt from the 2009 Dictionary of Bullshit. Click to enlarge.

I don't think we can fight the environmental crisis by paying lip service. Or saying, 'I care, but I'm not a treehugger.' Either you care enough to take responsibility on yourself and do whatever it takes, or you just don't care. Climate change isn't a matter of living room discussions anymore. It is here and it is heating the hell out of my village and drying it of all water and hope. And I care. So if you can't tell your carbon footprint from your facebook status, please shut the fuck up.

Quite astonishingly a term that originated from a non-violent resistance movement associated with women’s emancipation, sustainable development and ecological conservation in rural India, long before environmentalism was fashionable has now become a derogatory term this side of GMT. Can anyone explain why?

i am a quote freak. and two come to my mind immediately.

"A liberal is a man too broad minded to take his own side in a quarrel."

- Robert Frost

and

"The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity"

- Yeats

the truth, maybe somewhere in between.
