Richard, you are a genius. Your "David R." character has a great
sense of humor too! At the beginning he was too much down-to-earth
dry "objectivist like" (I guess, even a genius like you, learns on the fly).

I bet your Mr.Hyde will say: "David, you sound too much like Ayn Rand
with this "honest effort and individual accomplishment is worthless"
(as if it had anything to do with your statement).

"Everything is relative, there is no such thing as honesty" he will say
"Dawkins and Dennett are idiots; you can buy my books at..."

This is a great point, I admit, I missed from Reed's comment.
This virus hides *really* well. Will it be Lesson #4 of
Manipulation 101? Yes. Is Reed yours, or he is a public
domain, BTW?

One more thing: I am not a "Tad-how", please, give your "David R." character
some more home-work!

PS. Alcohol was never banned in Poland, although it was in
America, you rotten capitalist!
