Well, there seems to be no life in this topic which is my fault.

I agree with what everyone said, sidelined, and Brian, Phat about getting ideas across. I also note that Rousseau while brilliant, did many things during his life that I do not care to criticize. Think not of the man but of his ideas if you have any decency whatsoever.

Thanks for the tips and stuff, and the input from RickJB.

Until I feel excited about something that I want to discuss, peace out.

Re: Let's start with a simple question
I am trying to get my point across.

I explained why I will never read his books.

I explained why I didn't have to to write a good OP.

So whatever dawgs.

You are nothing but a poseur.

I did make account of that prophex.

sidelined writes:

While this does not negate the validity of the ideas he has it sheds light on the human being behind the Ideals that those ideas seek to address.

The point I was making was not an attack on the man per se but that if he cannot live up to his own Ideals then perhaps his ideas should be carefully examined. To state a conviction is one thing. It is wholly another to live it.
