was a total jackass, can I just say? I mean, the guy was a total hypocrite. His whole philosophy was about how children should be nurtured and cultivated and their education should be carefully looked after. But the dude didn't care jack shit about kids. He had five illegitimate children (yes, FIVE, with this one woman who he didn't marry until, like, forty-five years after they hooked up), which he just dropped at random orphanages around Europe and didn't bother to check up on them or anything.
But does it matter that I think Rousseau was a douche bag? No. I still have to do a massive research paper and dress up as him and prove that he had this wonderful impact on history, when really, he was just mean. He was a meany poopy head.
