“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Vegan Update: Nuts, Oh Nuts

I'm sitting on the edge of a kitchen chair holding an enormous bag of walnuts.

Just be careful what you dream of, that's all I say. I'm a big believer in collective meals and groups and sharing, and eat together with my crew every day. But in the last few days, I find myself not really eating lunch, in a sit down way, but simply perching with a bag of nuts. I have become the object of my fascinated horror.

After the Gabriel Giffords assasination attempt by Jared Laughtner, this issue of 'madness' cropped into the public domain (and madness seemed to have a negative connotation for the person who pulled the trigger, but not for the Palin-rhetoric that may have placed the thought in the gunman's fragile mind... ) Why do you think when something like that happens people scapegoat the lower classed madman, but not the upper class madman (or in this case a madwoman).. and do you offer any solutions to this issue?
