I’m not a fan of fanaticism, especially when it comes to religion and politics. Sports fans make sense to me (well, I guess because I am one), but viewing sports belongs in the general category of recreation.
Strict adherence to certain lifestyle things, like not wasting water and recycling and reducing use in the first place so you don’t have to recycle…well, those things are important to me. I don’t want to be a Nazi, but saving resources is important, especially for us first world people because we use a disproportionate amount of stuff.
I try not to buy stuff made in China, because I think workers are treated unfairly there. Not to mention the fact that your average Chinese person can’t leave the country without government permission. So for all you shoppers out there–Here’s a link to help you buy American. I think they are more fanatical than I am, but oh well.
