Comment 51, rh,

Ha! Spoing. Speak for yourself. In fact, think for yourself. Try it. Break your greasy, bloodstained strings or dance on - you'll have no choice.

Xmaseveeve Are you disagreeing with me?

Is this true?

Zeuglodon, a continuation of my comment 22. Perhaps you would like to respond?

Littletrotski I would suggest that if your reaction is not your responsibility, (you describe the idea as "fallacious") then you are a puppet dancing in reactive response to everything that happens to you. Can such an idea be true? Perhaps I am misreading you?

Interesting this metaphor about foundations. As an architect I understanding that foundations are needed because of and with the use of gravity. To take the metaphor a little further you could say that gravity could be 'truth'. I acknowledge, as Jos has expressed, that you stand by the 'truth', and it is the falsehood you see that you hate, not the person. I respect this view, and for Jos it was the answer (partly) to my question. I have no desire to attack you or make you wrong. I have no 'confusion' that I am aware of about any of this, as you suggest.

Jos my question still stands because although you answered it from 'we', I would assume that you do not have an authority to answer in that way. Perhaps I am wrong?

That makes some sense to me, but do you think our reaction is our responsibility?

Thank you Jos, but I stand by my question. I think it is relevant for us to get in touch with our motivation. Sean thank you for your honesty.

I am a little disturbed by the anger and resentment, expressed in some of these comments. As in the use of terms such as "idiots" "stupid" "moron", etc. Is this an expression of a morality that you claim to aspire too. Or is it more about fear, self righteousness and hatred.
