I can write about the truth because I care about it. You can write about nothing because you care about nothing.

You are attacking someone that cares about the truth and tries to spread the word.

Sounds like fascist behavior to me to be so perturbed, but most likely it's just that you so completely in fear and denial that you feel so threatened by the truth as to attack me just for writing it.

You're a true lover of freedom and civil liberty.

It's all within your power. You have a will, so use it.
Stop being a cry-baby and a victim.


I wasn't being a crybaby, I was being a realist. I am one person. One person with pockets that are not deep and zero influence. I spend my money at the places I want to support and I don't buy stuff from people whose actions I find objectionable, but other than that, I can't really stop anyone from doing anything. Neither can you. The only decisions I can make are those regarding my own behavior and my own choices.
If you have this "power" at your disposal, how come you have anything to bitch about at all? Why would you have not simply already made those changes you see as being "for the better?"

Yeesh.

You can stop being such a cad and call a spade a spade like I am, but instead you feel the need to start shit with me to discredit my words.

It's the same old bullshit as always.

You all are such total jerks and losers.

You can have your pathetically feeble and boring board back now, I'm done posting for a few more days.

I wasn't trying to "discredit you," I just saw your rhetoric as a little strident and more than a little sanctimonious and simplistic.
Sorry to have ruffled your feathers. I know you hate when people impede your progress by sidetracking you with semantic minutia when you're trying to save the goddamned planet.



If it helps you, I have never bought a diamond in my entire life.

I can understand "sanctimonious" and "simplistic" as valid criticisms. I am writing on a message board so I am trying to keep the message urgent, but simple.


For Chrissakes, The Beatles had their records burned for less. One would think that at least some Cat Power fans would be upset by this.

Here it is again, urgently & simply:

1. Artists that allow De Beers to use their music in diamond ads have no conscience or at the very least are going through some serious shit and they need help.
For the life of me, I don't see how there can be any valid criticism of this point.

2. You could have not been such a cad and just have called a spade a spade just as I have, but instead you feel the need to start shit with me to discredit my words. Any other board member could have written a topic with the same information I have provided and would not be met with such derision. It's not my fault that my words make you feel like an idiot; that's your fault.

3. I can write about the truth because I care about it. In my emprical experience, you on the other hand, can write about nothing meaningful because you care about nothing meaningful, or at least as you put it, you don't see how your view can help change anything. So, as a result, you'd rather be a smart-ass than give a rat's ass.

See ya later...

Allow me to repeat:
I do not buy diamonds. How much more plain can I be? My choices have not had much impact on the wedding industry or jewelers in general.
Your tirade should have had a little more on the subject of the effects of diamond mining (maybe even a little lesson on "conflict diamonds," which is as interesting a story as it is appalling) and a little less on the personal remarks which may or may not be valid or even have anything to do with the arguments you are trying to make.

Seriously, had I been able to get that you were talking in a general sense about the evils of the diamond trade as opposed to making personal judgments on the validity of the motivations behind some fellow boardies' missives, I might not have reacted so strongly in the first place. I may have even backed you up in some way.

To be honest Atari you're making a statement and I agree with it whole-heartly. And even if Chan Marshall is one of the persons, who don't care - i don't think that John Lennon's theory of having to classes works - of what she is earning her money with, does it do harm to records like "Moon Pix"?

By the way, when you quote John Lennon, you've got to be aware that he was a racist. Just on a sidenote.

And look how it works out; we both have opinions, and we are even both on the same side of the issue. And check it out; since neither one of us actually OWN a diamond mining operation, nor do either of us have any influence on this particular facet of the world economy, it still goes on.
Looks like you actually are more effective than me. Boy, is my face red.

I won't dignify pulsar's comment with a response.

Your excuses, Savage Clone, however valid they may seem, are not meaningful.

Change begins with leading by example and in doing so, utilizing one's right to free speech. (I'll also remind you that fortunately, we live in a representative democracy. Unfortunately, apathetic people such as yourself are ruining in for all the rest of us. The apathetic and ignorant undermine our efforts as those who care try vigilantly to keep a leash on the government).
And since there is already a growing movement calling for sweeping reforms throughout Africa due to chronic human rights abuses caused by mining, there are many worthwhile outlets for activism that are affecting some change in Africa. Every voice and every bit of support counts.

Apathy is easy. You just do nothing. And blame everyone else.

I
Do
Not

Diamonds.

Jesus fucking christ.
Just because I don't go around on a high horse telling everyone what they should be doing doesn't mean I haven't made a few choices on what I will or won't spend my money on.

Money or the lack thereof is the only thing that a large corporation reponds to.

If I "cared about nothing," why would I engage you in the first place?


Part of "leading by example" is not being a know-it-all, condescending jackass. If you want people to be sympathetic to your views (and especially if you truly want to get someone to change their behavior), why would you start off my making generalizations about them and making tangential remarks about their personal lives that may or may not have anything to do with the point you are trying to make?

Yeah, that approach wins tons of converts. It also sure doesn't give any ammunition to the kind of people who like to point at activists on the left and dismiss them as a bunch of snooty elitists who like to talk down to people.

"the song isn't a racist song it is about women being treated as black slaves, it was actually a quote by yoko ono, but john was racist the beatles wrote racist songs non were ever published but there are some that made it on to bootlegs, things like "white power", "no pakistanies" and "back to the commonwelth", white power was john the other two were pauls songs"

Those pieces were recorded after the India trip, which happened in 1966/67, I think in 1968.

Per the usual, you engaged me to be a smart-ass and try to discredit my words. Your continued debate can be chalked up to boredom and saving face, mostly boredom.

This is the pot calling the kettle black. You're the person that could have just agreed and called a spade a spade along with me. Again, it's not my fault if my words make you feel insecure or that you're compelled to be a contrarian as a knee-jerk response to try and come off as superior.

That's it...

this is over...

I think this is possibly the most "serious" discussion a thread with "pubes" in its title started. Besides, how comes every fuc*in' thread I start, no matter what's in it, ends up in a sort of dialectic blackhole? Enjoy your sinking guys.

Actually, I engaged you because you somehow made a link between my choice to be a vegetarian and the perpetuation of the evils of the diamond trade, neither of which has anything to do with the other. You also made this comment when I had said nothing to provoke it besides a snide comment about whether or not I thought Chan's music was any good. The tone of personal attack and dismissiveness started with you, and you know it. All I did was point out the fact that your rhetoric was not really designed to make anyone sympathetic towards your point of view, which I maintain to be true, and which you continue to make even more apparent with each post you make.

Maybe he had his beliefs concerning world peace, but with the aspect of his own race towering above the blacks. A friend of mine once played these tracks to me and they are really scary, even though authentic.
