Some of you might think I am a crack pot after this post, but the point of these weekly explorations of green manly men is to find the people or characters that exemplify a macho persona and have a very green quality about them. Why not John Rambo? You know, the guy played by Sylvester Stallone and was in First Blood, First Blood II, Rambo III and finished off with the 2008 version Rambo: Grandpa Returns. John Rambo (particularly the original, semi-realistic version) was very green in the movie First Blood.
Regardless of any political ideologies of Vietnam, war or any background issues you may have with the character or the movie, the man was able to sustain himself in the wild. What does it mean to be green? To me, one definition of being green is to have a small environmental footprint on the world. John Rambo fits this profile with his ability to live completely off the grid in the movie First Blood.
After he was wronged by the local police and escaped town, Rambo ran into the mountains to escape and hide. While in the wild, he manages to remain camouflaged, feed himself, find shelter and fight off the National Guard at the same time. If he had not been chased by the local police, he would have been just as comfortable in the woods and living off of the land in a completely carbon neutral and environmentally friendly manner.
So, John Rambo, you hippie greenie, if I were the sheriff of Hope and you came meandering into my city, I think I would tell you to have a good day and make sure to recycle you manly green man.
