I love it how fifty year olds are like “BOTTLED WATER IS SO EVIL! It’s SUCH A WASTE OF PLASTIC!” However, if you place mountains of sugar that was acquired through industrial farming and some psychotropic compounds into the water and make it into liquid candy they’re like “THIS IS AN EXCELLENT USE OF PLASTIC AND YOU SHOULD POUR THIS STUFF INTO YOURSELF AND YOUR CHILDREN!”
There is definitely a fourth category here though…people realizing that things that their parents think are great and acceptable are in fact terrible (examples…coal…and homophobia.)
I think people would be happier if they admitted things more often. In a sense we are all prisoners of some memory, or fear, or disappointment—we are all defined by something we can’t change.
