<< BTW, this seems to be a common response on this list. If you don't agree with
somebody, call their position a "semantics game". You aren't the first person
to do so this week. Such an accusation makes it at least as possible that you
didn't understand, or didn't want to understand, as that I was merely

a semantics game". Consider more possibilities.


After looking back over this, I don't think this is what you were necessarily doing. It just sounded a little similar to what Reed definitely was doing, and I was a little annoyed at that. I still don't see that there is a necessary distinction between a "material" and a "social" world view, much less inconsistencies between them.
