I knew Erin Belcher when she was coming to LaRouche meetings. I tried to be particularly friendly to her because she seemed very uncomfortable in social situations. I was there when she had a severe tantrum in the office that shocked and befuddled everyone who witnessed it. It turned out that she had been hiding severe psychological problems, and that she was being heavily medicated. I honestly felt sorry for her, and I wish I could have helped, regardless of anything to do with LaRouche. I tried, and failed.
I'm just wondering Mr. King, seeing that you and I disagree fundamentally on LaRouche, how do you suggest I change my core beliefs? I think of myself as a Christian, though my theology usually conflicts with modern forms of Christianity. I believe man is fundamentally good. I believe ideas are good or bad depending upon whether they ultimately advance or hinder human development, and I believe LaRouche is probably the greatest living philosopher. That's right, the greatest living philosopher. I count that as a core belief.
I'm certain you disagree with me. In fact, you probably think I'm a sycophant for saying such a thing, even though I haven't been working for LaRouche in several years. However, we all have core beliefs, even if we don't believe in much of anything extraordinary. Most Americans probably don't even have a favorite philosopher. They might have a favorite baseball player instead.
But you're an educated man. Surely you have core beliefs that are far more developed than average. You must have a favorite philosopher. You might even have a favorite living philosopher, though I would question whether you have the courtesy to say who it might be. I'm sure you understand me, somewhat at least, in your own way, because you know I like LaRouche. Please allow me the courtesy of understanding you, at least potentially, in a similar way.
