When I discovered this forum I thought; my god these are the people I always wanted to meet. Every message posted here, especially, By Linz or Barbara, was something I always read and reread, because afraid of missing something important. Since Barbara left, and like her many others, things are little different now.
Linz is not the one I used to read, he sounds sad, and tired.
Objectivism seems to be under a god dammed malignant spell, which leads the great minds of objectivism to parting of the ways.
This is not the forum it used to be. There is a sense of malevolence in the air. At part the happy event of Michael and Kat, It all seems so sad.
I think that, Linz, Barbara, James and all the others must show to the world that peace is possible. It could be something colossal, something to be written in the history of objectivism, something very useful especially for the future generations and above all for objectivism.
This is my pray for tonight.
If you have done something you know to be wrong, if you feel guilty about it and wish to correct it, there are usually five steps you should take: (1) Acknowledge the fact that it is you who have taken that particular action. Face and accept the full reality of what you have done, with out denial or disavowal. Acknowledge, accept, and take responsibility.
Do not say, it really wasn’t me. (2) Seek to understand why you did what you did. Understand where you were coming from. (3) If others are involved, as they often are, acknowledge explicitly to the relevant persons the harm you have done.
Convey your understanding of the consequences of your behavior. Convey your understanding of how they have been affected. (4) Take any and all action that might make amends for or minimize the harm you have done. (5) Firmly commit yourself
To acting differently in the future.
Dr. Nathaniel Branden.
Good night my friends, and god bless you all .
