I'm reading a book called Everybody was Kung-Fu Fighting: Afro-Asian Connections and the Myth of Cultural Purity, I read another book by the author and really liked it, I think it had a profound effect on me and the way I think now, this other book's a lot like that.

Dude Holden wasn't phony. Yeah he had his moments of "phoniness" but that wasn't the same as the commentary on the society itself. He actually believed in his ideals. The problem was that he was too idealistic, and those ideals are just not possible in reality.

Like some people I know. Or rather, some people I used to debate idealism/cynicism with.

(too bad jusun will probably never read this. to anyone wondering what i'm talking about, jusun went to the same high school as me for his senior year, we had many a debate on that topic. juse never won.)

How the hell do you not win a debate? Everyone wins debates, or at least you never lose. It's like playing tick tac toe, you don't lose, it's unacceptable.

We are talking about juse here.

Though I should, for the sake of honesty, point out that, at times, the odds were stacked against him. He was arguing against me and ricky, sometimes, and it's pretty damn hard to refute us both.

He wasn't too great in one-on-ones either, though.

Silly idealist. Impossibile conceptions of reality are for kids!

Fabric of the Cosmos by Brian Greene.

At first i found it too elementary and cringed at greene's tendency to make everything tangible by mentioning the reader far too often, but now he has subsided and the ideas more interesting, concepts more tangible, and the way he writes is eloquent and witty. It also is great because he possesses a great deal of self-conviction and does not ride the idealism train. He continually points out shortcomings. It is a good read, i am about 3/4 through it now, i shoudl finish it by school starting.
