bear, I know from your posts that you are a good

and sincere person who is growing rapidly as a Liberty advocate.

One gentle remonstrance on your posts in this thread: I think you contribute best when you have personal knowledge of a subject. Just reading about the flaws in a great person's personal life -- and the more minor flaws in the person's philosophy or art -- does not really prepare you to discuss a giant's work usefully, except as learning dialogue of course.

Take nearly any great of the past -- Einstein, Gandhi, MLK, the founding fathers, Ezra Pound, G.H. Wells, on and on and on. They all had massive personal flaws and often their works were deeply flawed too.

It is most advantageous for growth to be aware of the errors, but to gain from the immense contributions to peace and the arts made by many flawed major historic figures.
