I like you. We need more people like you around as well. ;)
Note: I didn't fully agree with Dissident either. It has been approximately two years since we chatted, and I would really like to see what he has to say about my beliefs that are now more refined. I wonder if his mind has changed and opened up to anything that I presented to him. Even though I didn't agree with him on specific things, he certainly challenged my mind in all the right ways. It was a pleasure conversing with him because he could remain so dialectically balanced, being able to acknowledge what I was right about and then respectfully mention his own ideas while asking questions instead of assuming, on top of the fact that he was willing to spend so much time simply discussing things in detail with me. He seemed to work very hard at getting everyone into the same chapter, as opposed to being on the exact same page.
Dissident is/was a dissident through and through. I just wonder what kind of fight he's putting up with now.
There's always room for improvement in our world, so I really hope he is somewhere that he knows he needs to be more than here, taking care of business and other serious matters that everyone should be concerned about.
+Keep up the good work, Everyone!
