you wrote that we have had experiences. I dont remember them so well. In any case, it is not so, that I would see you representing a certain way of thinking I would categorically oppose. I cannot put you into a drawer. But I dont want to put people into drawers anyway. Some things you write seem quite wise. Some others I did not grasp. Sometimes you quoted some "Strauss", whoever that is, and I remember, that these quotes often have stirred a feeling of objection in me. Which drawer am I in? Myself I would describe as liberal democrat. But nowadays, these two attributes seem to drift apart, each of them easily being connected with false friends: "Liberal" with neoliberalism and elitarism, and "Democrat" with populism (people against other people). I will not let myself be driven into the edge of the box, saying I´m an anarchist, because anarchists are against any state, and I guess, without a state, mafia organisations would rule. And I don´t believe that anarchists would be able to resist them properly, as anarchists are peaceful people, as universalists reluctant to hurt other people, other than the mafia people are. So I think, that a state with a power monopol is necessary. But enough of that, I am not a game player anyway, and would never become a politician. Awful job, I´d puke all the time. Of course you are right to redivert the attention to Peirce. but not, because I would not care about what you would say, but because Gary would, very justifiedly, claim that we have to be Peirce-related.
Oops, I have not been, sorry, ok, so much for that, I promise to be Peirce related next time again,
