Of course we are. I havent finished reading this yet.. but i find the begining to be very humorous.. I wondered what kind of insults could be put into play. You make me feel sane though ive always seen myself as kinda insane. Weird. what else have you written?

You certainly seem to be used to pre defending yourself. Though when I think about it.. if certain people were reading this, they most definitely would be attacking you for many of your opinions. People.. its interesting to see how you seem to care so much. hmm

Yes, I’ve become very used to anticipating objections and getting them out of the way. I’ve spent many years debating on the Internet. And you’re right, a lot of people still attack me for this and other pieces I’ve written. Since you asked, more of my work can be found here:

Oh, I didn’t realize you already had a topic for it. Sorry for the duplicate, then. :)

@naturyl, It cried bump. :) And for the people who already read it but forgot because of the insanity they got used to again. I’m sure it will continue to influence people to their core for a long, long time. It’s a pleasure to meet you.

Insane people are the ones who are thinking in the most logical manner. It may only apply to them but it is purely logical according to their perspective. Modern society revolves around image. Perhaps this is a backlash from the 60s through to the 90s, where image was not as prominent as ideas?
