Some great fur quotes from the Kaiser, from an article in Vice Magazine.

On the fur trade:

“…when people talk about not using fur, [I always say] ‘Are you rich enough to make an income for the people in the north who live from hunting? What do you want them to live off of when there’s nothing else to do?'”

Great point Karl! Finally someone is standing up for the hunters and farmers.

On buying fur:

“If you cannot afford it, just forget about it. Don’t use it as an investment piece to show people how rich you are. Use it like a cheap knitted thing. It’s like a big stone. Lucky you that you can have a big stone, but if it troubles you financially to have the stone, don’t have the stone”
