    Hi Sam,

    I think you are reading into my defense of human freedom way more
    than my comments imply, especially if you see me in bed with Ayn
    Rand, the thought of which makes me shudder, even if you are being
    figurative, not literal.

    Let me briefly summarize my thoughts:

    I believe that a fully-realized, fully-informed human being will make
    Quality decisions, if he or she is not restricted from doing so.

    By "fully-realized" I mean a human being in touch with our common
    humanity, a realization that arises from within as naturally as
    compassion, if it is permitted to do so.

    The restrictions I speak of derive from numerous and pervasive
    external forces like emotional and physical abuse, as well as
    intellectual abuse such as relentless mass advertising and religious

    In short, I think that a fully-realized, fully-informed, unrestricted
    human being will not only refuse to be exploited, but will CHOOSE not
    to exploit others.

    This is why a fully-realized, fully-informed, unrestricted human
    being will reject state-supported capitalism as a very low-quality
    form of socio-economic organization.

    So... with this in mind, when you get a chance, reformulate your
    argument and we'll see where we can go with it.
