TT, I presume you went through the TM program and initiation and became "enlightened".

Tell us, did you not learn that the use a lot of judgmental casuistry and sophism is not helpful to communication? Is the above a demonstration of what did learn? Now I know why The Natural Law Party flunked political science 101 !

TT, I think that the big difference between you and me is this: I am not enlightened, yet--and perhaps still quite ignorant of many things. However, I know that I don't know. Thank you Socrates! Sad that you were a victim of the know-it-alls.

BTW, were ever taught by Jesuits? I read that they have the reputation for being casuists.
