Between my sleeping and dreaming,
Between me and the one in me
Who I suppose I am,
A river flows without end.

— Fernando Pessoa, “30 August 1933,” A Little Larger Than the Entire Universe (via heteroglossia)

Anónimo asked: Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian.



Except that he almost definitely wasn’t. And Einstein was. And Newton was. And Da Vinci was.

And if he had been, so what? Hitler wore socks. Are we to say that all people who wear socks are Hitler? He had a dog. Are all dog owners Hitler? He liked to paint. Are all painters Hitler?

Meanwhile, Pol Pot ate meat. Genghis Khan ate meat. Stalin ate meat. I’m assuming you’re willing to draw comparisons between yourself and these people, yes?

Try harder, buddy.
