Iconoclast: a person who attacks cherished beliefs or institutions.
Duh. It’s fucking dessert for me. Ask my parents. There is literally nothing I love more than to goad or demonstrate to anyone—even my parents—that their lives have been a complete waste, intellectually.
The cool thing about iconoclasm is that it does’t deal in the practical. You can be as cognitively dissonant as you like in pursuing a sane terrestrial existence, while pretending as though suicide is a cool option since you get to go to heaven and sit at Jebus’ feet for eternity as a worship slave. There are many levels. That’s just the fundamentalist Christian Fuckatard extreme (If true, I want to go to hell where all the cool cats will be).
Enough, because it’s really too fucking stupid. Why this post? Because this email. I get these all the time, I forward them to Bea and she says: don’t listen. Bea has her own struggles with my fat head.
I included ‘bacon’ in my subject matter to get your attention ;)
Miss ya on FB bro but totally support your decision. So today I remembered ya and popped over to ‘Free The Animal’ and laf’d my ass off when I saw your Buckley Jr. quote about liberal beliefs and the Bill Maher episode with Ben Affleck. I watched that this morning and thought the same damn thing!
Although it seems you and I may have very different personalities and I have disagreed with some of your material, I always found this refreshing perspective when reading your posts and became greatly appreciative of your opinions. It was as if you helped feed part of my maturing mindset that lacked some realism or practicality maybe. In fact, I’m not quite sure what to call the perspective you would lend, but I know there is a world we live in that many are oblivious to and it doesn’t help to just plow thru with an optimistic attitude, that’s actually a lack of integrity, because it’s almost dishonest not just ignorant. I’m perfectly happy and optimistic still as I weight the bullshit in life, it’s just who I am, but your sheer brutal reality of our functioning world has added a welcomed perspective that I know will give way to opportunity. And there’s nothing like identifying just one more fucktard (sometimes it’s me!) or horrible display of humanity, even if it’s only a passing thought. I have no reason to blend in with the pack. As I grow, I have more reason than ever to root my ideologies, grow from them and never fear change or be sorry for being true to myself.
I will keep tabs on all your other media outlets and blog.
All I’ll tell you is that was from a young woman.
“And there’s nothing like identifying just one more fucktard (sometimes it’s me!)”
Me too. That’s why it’s so damn easy to identify.
