December 08, 2004
I enjoyed Michael Moore's – Stupid White Men for about 5 pages, until I realised it was propaganda as bad as Bush's.
It depresses me not knowing the truth…and what is even worse is that I doubt I will ever come close to know what is really happening.
As well as that recently, with too much time on my hands I have been thinking about food (how completely unlike me(!)) and that also depresses me not knowing where any of my food comes from. Just watching how a cow was killed on TV upset me, and this is a cow kept in the very best conditions. And all chicken we buy is a genetically modified obese chicken fed on enhanced proteins and antibiotics. Don't like it.
Not many practical steps a stingy student can make apart from trying to cut down on the meat I eat, limit it to twice a week and try to buy out door reared organic stuff. The money I save by going to the greengrocers and cutting down on meat should make up the difference. It's crazy, food is so important to everyone but we sacrifice so much for the horrible price wars between ADSA and Tesco. Just thinking about what has happened to my food is enough to dampen my appetite anyway!
Don't even get me started on the two things that have ruined the entire world, supermarkets and alcohol! (Obviously ignoring the many times I have got hammered!)
If I carry on like this I will begin to find myself very irritating, sorry!
