This story reminds me of a party I went to back in my high school days. I was bored to tears, but embarrassed to leave early. “If only I were a solipsist,” I remember thinking, “I could just leave.” After thinking about that for a minute, I had a second thought: “I can still leave even if I’m not a solipsist.” So I left.
My wife comments: “If solipsism were true, why would you need to leave?”
Ah but if you leave you run the risk of alienating future “trading partners”, or were you not a Randian by that time?
You’re a quirky guy ( :
I like you though. And I am also wondering whether you were a Randian in highschool or not. I want to read your book on Rand versus Aristotle.
If you want to, you can send me a free copy.
Consider it an exchange of values. I have provided you with blog posts and this comment!
(Not entirely serious here, but I never object to good free books)
