OK, I'm fat, so what?
Again Kunstler pisses me off.
When I go out in America, I see fat people and skinny people both. When I was in Germany during the last six months of my time in the Army, I got to meet a bunch of fat folks there too. When I went up to Sweden, there were fat people there as well.
Kunstler is a prick sometimes. He is a prophet of peak oil doom whose carbon footprint involves so much jet travel that he could personally power a small town for a year. He decries the shallowness of American suburbia, then goes out and wades in the shallows of personal appearance.
But he is the same as everyone else in America. Content in their own righteousness and ability to see the motes in other's eyes. Like all of us, he is a hypocrite.
But I have a question to ask him. Who maintains the greater sins against his fellow man. A man who uses the equivalent of fifteen or twenty years of my children's inheritance jetting about the world preaching sustainable energy use, or a underemployed, poorly educated serf with a fondness for Whoppers.
