Hello Andrej, I recently came across your article while doing some web browsing. Very well done. Are you familiar with Quent Cordair Fine Art? www.cordair.com We are one of the world's finest Romantic Realist art galleries. If Ayn Rand were alive today, I am certain that she would approve of our offering of the finiest in Contemporary Romantic Realism. I hope that you will enjoy the art as much as we do and if you ever make it to the San Francisco bay area that you will stop by the physical gallery and enjoy the art in person. All the best, Linda Zimmerman Director
Dear Linda, thank you very much for drawing my attention to your excellent art collection. I will definitely let my readers know about your web site. I liked the paintings so much that I wanted to buy some. However, your web interface did not let me ship things to Slovenia, where I currently live. Is this so because Slovenia used to be part of the Soviet Union? If so, I congratulate you on your sticking to higher moral principles and refusing to do business with countries of questionable history who have not been willing to let go of the old communist ideas. I was in a somewhat similar position last month when the Slovene Ministry of Finance asked me to deliver a series of lectures on the influence of Objectivism on the US Federal Reserve. As soon as it became clear that more than half of them were former commies, I refused. Sincerely, Andrej Bauer, the only Objectivist in Slovenia
The more of your page I keep reading, the more I am happy with what I read. I was curious are you available via IRC or ICQ for a more real time conversation? Inspire me!

Dear Jasmine, I am glad you liked my web page about Objectivism. Every day, I get several e-mail messages like yours. It is clear that Objectivism has won on the Internet, which is not surprising since Internet qua Internet is the medium of pure information, and information is the fuel of reason, if you will allow me to express myself poetically. The reason why I decided to reply to you is that I have looked at your web pages and discovered that you are associated with one Jeffrey Blatt. I was shocked to find that a true Objectivist like yourself would think of sharing a domain name with a person who is so blatantly mistaken about Objectivism. His childish and unprofessional ramblings about why he is not an Objectivst are immoral and must go. I am writing to you in the hope to convince you that you secretly delete Jeffrey's page. In return, I could talk to some people at Ayn Rand Institute and convince them to show you their private "Aynime" collection. It's a series of anime art illustrations by Katsuhiro Otomo that were made during Ayn Rand's series of lectures at Gainax headquarters in Japan, while she was still alive. Sincerely, Andrej Bauer P.S. What are these IRC and IRQ you are talking about?

I see you have had a glance at my Objectivism page. From your remarks it is clear that you have not grasped the objective meaning of my interactive internet Objectivist exposition. In fact, your post scriptum reveals a repressed Hegelian view of the world ("Never forget the equal and opposite."). You are correct about one thing, though: you call the petty academic positivistic philosophy "emotional", and I could not agree more, having read a good deal of Bertrand Russell's work on logic, and being a Ph.D. student in logic myself. Philosophy is a matter of life and death. If you are going to make remarks like these, I suggest you devote to it more attention than to other subjects that your web surfing software might take you to. Andrej
