|01:10 pm - Bitch rant, watch out~! And a dab of politics (surprise! xDD)|
She stopped looking at my journal a long time ago, but she knows I posted about her as recently as 2 weeks back latest, mmhmm.
So someone posted a link to one of my entries talking about her on her journal, so someone linked me to one of her entries/told me what she said on msn/provided screencaps through msn...er and the difference is?
She also has a short term memory deficiency it seems. I know I forget stuff fairly quickly (especially details), but at least the general gist of what happened I can still recall (it's like understanding the concepts in my politics class but not paying attention to specific stats and dates, hence essay exams are so much easier to ace than multiple choice ones). Especially for something as important as why a certain type of behaviour would cause such a large number of people to hate your guts (and no it's not just 3 my dear, I'm sorry to inform you) since it might pose as helpful reference for future experience of how NOT to act. Or is that just me since I'm in politics and learning from past mistakes can sometimes mean the difference between massacres and peaceful resolutions?
She called me immature back in Feb. for "retaliation", but I refrained from pointing out to her that even though she's 6 years older than me she's not exactly neutral is she? (XDDDDD NEUTRAL!! HAHA!!! Sorry that just struck me as hilarious, neutral, her, ha).
You want to know why I don't tell my buddies to just stop relating news regarding you to me? Simple, it's a great way to gather experience on how to deal with politicians that think it's their way or the highway. Politicians that think the world's so happy-happy-joy-joy simply because they get to lounge in their Malibu mansions drinking martinis served by maids. Plus, if all of the journals I kept track of were of those people who are generally in agreement with me and think like me, how often would I get to take the offensive stance? Not to mention I'd start thinking in your similar fashion that the world's rainbows, marshmallows and riding on ponies. Hating on Bush and Capitalism only gets me so far.
My future's in politics, and in politics I'm bound to come across all types. You're just research data sweetie. Fandom's a miniscule part of my big picture, my aim is the international stage, if you think this is still just about grudges from fandom, hehe, you need some coffee to wake up.
Speaking of international issues, can the news get anymore obvious?
"GLOBAL ECOSYSTEMS FACE COLLAPSE"
Erm...ok...someone correct me if I'm wrong here, but...the global ecosystem's been facing collapse since...well I'd hazard a guess since the Industrial Revolution. We all know our current life styles (those in developed countries anyway) are 110% non-sustainable, the only question is how long can it last before it evaporates. So...these guys are just realizing NOW that the billions of other organisms on this planet outside of humans are in danger of disappearing? Whoa...we're doomed at this rate.
Which makes me wonder though, right now the number of countries that are considered "developed" is about what, 30%? 40%? Is it that high? platinum_ice help me out here. And all these human rights groups and this organization and that association are trying to raise the living standards in all the developing nations up to, or at least close to those of the developed. If with only such a small percentage of developed nations we're already killing the Earth...hmm...I don't know if all this talk of improving living standards so that 100% of nations are developed is a good idea in the long run. Dilemmas, dilemmas, do we want everyone in the here and now to live comfortably and screw the future generations? Or do we want a future but screw the people in the undeveloped nations of today?
Argh~ why's everything relating to politics so messed uuuuuuuuup?! So many problems, so many facets of each problem, so many causes and effects to consider for each solution put forth; 2 sides to each problem, more like 50 sides ~__~;;
Cheerfulness's one thing, but in this world, after everything I've seen and heard, I can't help but think that the only way a person can be truly happy is through ignorance. Perhaps not ignorance in the sense that one doesn't know all the crap that goes on, but choosing instead to ignore it along with the sufferings of millions. Again, I stress that I probably put more emphasis in my life because of what I study, so in a way it's unfair of me. Definitely when I'm around friends, I tend to be happy as well, I mean no sense crying my eyes out and spoiling their fun as well, but with close friends, the mood easily takes a turn downhill.
I won't deny that when I do go on outtings with friends and shove all thoughts of all the problems in the world aside, I enjoy myself immensely, and it takes great effort to force myself to come back into my little hub of misery afterwards. No one wants to read that 5 million kids starve to death each day when you've just gone out for a mega-buffet right? DX As I've realized, and some of my program-mates have confirmed, politics ruins the fun in life, in every single possible way x_x
I would think that most people don't bare their innermost core on something as public as lj, or anywhere on the internet for that matter. I try to bare as much as I can simply because being a Liberal in political beliefs, my fundamental belief is that humans, by nature are "good" (good god I'm starting to sound like my Political Thoughts professor D=). Hence why I don't f-lock 99% of the posts and all that stuff, I want to believe that aside from the few morons, in general people won't use what I've written against me (so far so good ^o^).
On the politics side of things, I find Canada tends to be more liberal-minded than America, which is ironic since America's the big promoter of equality and all that on the international stage. It becomes more and more ironic the more I learn about the USA's involvement in the United Nations and other international organizations because equality's far from what's practiced (promoted, but not practiced). Bush is...well Bush is in a field of his own lol. Most of the world's pretty much made up their mind that the only reason Bush went into Iraq was for oil profits, and I believe if memory serves me correct, Vice President Cheney and Secretary of State Rice both have investments in the oil industry as well. Have you seen the movie Farenheit 9/11 by Michael Moore? I know when I went to China in 2005, that movie wasn't anywhere to be seen, so I think it might be the case with Japan too. In any case, it's a great movie to watch to get some insight on the whole war issue. It's sad that Bush totally failed the American people in protecting them and the USA's reputation on the international stage, yet there're still Americans who support him. I think the man's too old-fashioned in his thoughts and simplistic in his views. Everything's black and white to him, either his way or the highway, and his old-fashioned thinking shows in his stance against gay marriages. Must be because of the sheltered childhood lol.
I personally believe that a nation, aside from protecting its own sovereignty from foreign invasions, should by no means use military force. Self defense only. I guess that then raises the issue of whether peacekeeping operations by the UN are legitimate or not since it technically invades a nation's sovereignty, especially if the government doesn't want the UN in there (as is the case with Darfar right now).
