To expand slightly:

I quoted Richter as someone who has quite succinctly captured within
verbal parameters that mental place to which I have arrived, after
many years of shedding various ideologies, some imposed, some not.
(As such I didn't meant to indicate that his thinking is in any way
superior to anyone, Rand included, but merely that I relate to it.)

The utter purity of mental exploration without any principle to guide, no
belief to take refuge in, nothing to separate me from the rigors of
self-examination--that, to my thinking, forms the basis for true
freedom. I renew that commitment today, and welcome anyone's thoughts on
the concept of freedom.
