That would seem a most unlikely generalization, even if we didn't have
evidence to the contrary. As it happens, we *do* have evidence to the
contrary, because on the >H list we saw much support expressed for the
notion that we were there, bouncing ideas off each other, as part of a
personal search for understanding the world, and that through this
wonderful exchange of ideas we were developing our personal worldviews
or ideologies. Perhaps a proportion of list members are content to go
with an unmodified collective worldview, but in a >H community of such
strong individualists I rather doubt that it would be a high proportion.
More likely we all accept the basic ideas of TH but tailor them to suit
our very individual personal makeup. That certainly expresses my own
approach exactly.

As for it all being *subjective*, you bet it is!!!

Yes indeed, hence the smiley. All the best!
