    Hi Ham,

    Thanks for the article about Durkheim. It gives an accurate description of
    how collectivists think, but fails to mention the millions of corpses
    sacrificed to the leftist's illusion of creating a heaven on earth.

    I agree it bears a resemblance to the social level, of "the Giant" in the
    MOQ. But, do not overlook that the MOQ places individual intellect at a
    higher moral level than society. And, remember that the MOQ keeps society
    in its proper place as supporting the intellectual level by insisting on
    laws that prevent the Giant from stifling free speech, freedom of
    religion, freedom of the press, free markets, etc. Such laws recognize and
    grant the highest moral value to "selves" like you, me and all who
    contribute to this site, regardless of other interpretations to the
    contrary. Our conversations would not be permitted if a socialist Giant
    was completely in charge, as is the case with Nazism and Communism.

    Incidentally, if you have the time and inclination, I'd very much like to
    know what role art plays in your Essence philosophy. Do you think it
    offers transcendence to the divine (Quality) as I do?
