If I told you guys that I voted against the ban on killing wolves from helicopters, would you judge me by that, or would you judge me by the way I've treated you for who knows how many years? Would you remove your artwork from EMG if you knew that I disagreed with the classification of polar bears as endangered? Would you consider that I'm not environmentally aware by these opinions, even though I religiously re-use even my trash, and live a lifestyle more green than a lot of hippies and a lot more conscious than any politician? Do you think that I'm a horrible person because I disagree with your definition of life and think that even if you're right, it can be okay to kill? Would you stop buying from EMG because I voiced these opinions in my livejournal?
I don't have many illusions about wildlife. Every day, I have fewer illusions about people.
I'm curious. Would you rather keep your illusions about the people whose opinions you've not heard, or would you rather know, risking disagreement? Does disagreement equate to losing respect?
