I must clarify that I argue not just to persuade the person I'm in immediate correspondence with, and I'm aware of my influence on the audience at large. That's an important point. And the things I want to persuade you about may be subtle and not always the same things you think they are.
But on the topic at hand, Crow is a very spiritual person. Y'all have to understand something: to people with egos, people with no egos can appear to have very large egos. In the realm of communication, then, much of the responsibility does fall on the ego-less person, because they can see both sides of the equation, they have the upper hand. It's a fun art! But I always thought of it as a rather pointed art, at least in my left-leaning approach. And you don't make a whole bru-ha-ha with people just because you like to receive confirmation that indeed you have less ego than them, as if to confirm your superiority. Crow is not on these forums pointlessly, he has a purpose. Is he accomplishing it? And do I agree with his views about science, Pakistanis, etc? These are other matters. But I appreciate his art and his efforts. That being said, as he wields much power if he makes mistakes in his communication or is blind to certain inner facets of himself these things will show up highlighted. I'm not saying that's the case here, frankly I don't have time to read all this chit-chat, but it's a risk, it's a fine and subtle art, that can go wrong.
