I missed your post until just today, or I would have responded right away.
I'm a newcomer to SOLO, but I feel I've gotten to know you somewhat through your posts. I am very happy for you. That you express your love so publicly is quite touching, and I sincerely mean that. Sharing a sense of life with another is quite a special thing, and far too rare in this world.
We disagree about some important matters, but I appreciate that you respond to what I post, even though you disagree. (You've even been polite enough to ignore my misspellings.)
We both share our love for Rand and her philosophy. We both feel that convincing others through use of reason is worth the effort.
In all the discussions on SOLO, I am sometimes reminded of Diane Keaton's line from the movie "Reds" as the Communist labor movement began to splinter: "What are we? What's left of the Left of the Left?"
It is so rare to find people who even know how to pronounce "Ayn" much less care at all about her philosophy, or any philosophy for that matter. Yet many of the discussions on Solo turn angry and bitter. However, I think it is for the same reason, as in "Reds"-----we care passionately and sincerely about even the slightest error in a philosophy we love. (Ooops, "Passion" may be a poor word to bring up just now?!!)
Again, I'm happy for you that you have someone to share your sense of life. Thanks for the vicarious thrill.
