lu: (Déja-vu)
There is absolutely no need to read this. I meant to write a small post, but I ended up blurting out things that I've been thinking about for a long time, regarding myself, stereotypes, the gay community, and, well, myself.


Sometimes I forget writing is a good way to organise your thoughts. )


On a side note, I've quit smoking. It's been five days, no cigarettes. I'm not sure why I did it, but it had been bothering me for a while, and I'll try to make it happen.

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
