Celebrate World Vegan Day

Back in 1944 November 1st was established as World Vegan Day.  Anyone want to go get a burger?  I guess it gives the social justice, politically correct, crybully crowd another reason to wag their fingers at us.

And here’s a little bonus…

Orwell, vegetarians, and the reality based world

George Orwell was one of the most influential futurist authors I was exposed to early in my reading career.  Despite his socialist leanings, a lot of his observations of human nature and societies were and still are spot on.  Read a few of my favorites and see what they tell you about the Occupy wackos.

On vegetarians and progressives…

“One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’ draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, ‘Nature Cure’ quack, pacifist, and feminist….The food-crank is by definition a person willing to cut himself off from human society in hopes of adding five years on to the life of his carcase; that is, a person out of touch with common humanity.”

Our troops aren’t villains…

“People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf”

History matters…

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

Intellectual stupidity…

“There are some ideas so wrong that only a very intelligent person
could believe in them.”

Insanity…

“What can you do against the lunatic who is more intelligent than yourself, who gives your arguments a fair hearing and then simply persists in his lunacy?”

His personal politics aside, some time spent reading some of his books or visiting his archive site would be time well spent.
