    Are you Texan, by the way?

    well, I'm guessing that they DO reuse their sheets... I've never seen disposable Klan robes in the stores, but I HAVE seen the linen section... I don't know about the environmental friendliness of burning crosses though

    It depends how we ignite the crosses. Kerosene is bad and old fashioned, since this is fossil fuel. But with a flint lighter, it's OK and would look much cooler: the carbon balance is neutral.

    Yeah the carbon emissions!

    I remember reading one of the last books by Rudolf Bahro, he was embarrassingly fond of some of the neo-pagan fascist greens, I dont mean the eco-brutalist ones which spiked trees in logging areas or sabotaged machinery and favoured allowing illness and war to reduce population in the developing world but the proper neo-brown shirts.

    There are some of them which have funny views about protecting different ethnic groups as though they were extinction threatened animal breeds, they were without a doubt nazis but a sort of politically correct variety if you can imagine that, friends of native peoples, friends of israel and American indian movements.

    Ever since finding out about those branches I've never considered the greens the same way since, I tend to think of them now as anything but the countryside conservatives or tree huggers I once did.

    oh yes, I've met some real out there eco-nutjobs in college- the anarchist/back to nature/send whitey back to europe types were a trip!

    There are quite a lot of those vegan, self-sufficient holier than thou people around here. I don't have anything against their lifestyle, I respect their effort and discipline.
    But they just make themselves look so blatantly superior to everyone that it overshadows the good aspects, to me.

    oh, that and the fact that they often look dirty too...

    I wonder how much family size plays a part in this.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
