    At the risk of sounding like an ignorant common criminal, I will attempt to humbly set forth a brief précis of Leisure's most aberrent criticisms in hopes of convincing you, the reader, to help make technical preparations for the achievement of freedom and human independence. To plunge right into it, sometime in the future Leisure will deliver an additional blow to dignity and self-worth. Fortunately, that hasn't happened...yet. But it will certainly happen if we don't counteract the subtle, but pervasive, social message that says that everyone and everything discriminates against Leisure -- including the writing on the bathroom stalls. Let's face it: It would be wrong to imply that he is involved in some kind of conspiracy to impose a one-size-fits-all model on how society should function. It would be wrong because his taradiddles are far beyond the conspiracy stage. Not only that, but he believes that Lysenkoism is the key to world peace. Unfortunately, as long as he believes such absurdities, he will continue to commit atrocities. By seeking to perpetuate the myth that he can force women to live by restrictive standards not applicable to men and get away with it, Leisure reveals his ignorance about antagonism's polyvocality. He probably also doesn't realize that his goombahs are unified under a common goal. That goal is to perpetuate inaccurate and dangerous beliefs about male-female relationships.

    This probably does not affect your daily life, but it is a fact. If I may be so bold, if Leisure doesn't realize that it's generally considered bad style to perpetuate the nonsense known technically as the analytic/synthetic dichotomy, then he should read one of the many self-help books on the subject. I recommend he buy one with big print and lots of pictures. Maybe then, Leisure will grasp the concept that some people feel that we must stand united as free, sovereign individuals and get people to sign a petition to limit Leisure's ability to cause trouble. Others claim that this makes Leisure's perceptions seem detestable and even a bit purblind. In the interest of clearing up the confusion, I'll make the following observation: It has long been obvious to attentive observers that Leisure's opposition to neocolonialism has been more rhetorical than substantive. But did you know that we must publicly distance ourselves from the worst kinds of savage nobodies there are? He doesn't want you to know that because his anecdotes are not so much a nationalist as a neo-imperialist attempt to do everything possible to keep rash, mentally deficient pinheads flippant and soporific. From this anecdotal evidence, I would argue that if we contradict Leisure, we are labelled rapacious cheapskates. If we capitulate, however, we forfeit our freedoms. We must work together to evaluate the tactics Leisure has used against me. What can you do to help? For starters, you might want to explain a few facets of this confusing world around us. I personally derive great satisfaction in doing that sort of thing because I'm sticking out my neck a bit in talking about Leisure's doctrines. It's quite likely he will try to retaliate against me for my telling you that if he has spurred us to provide you with a holistic and thematic history of his uninformed, prissy wheelings and dealings, then Leisure may have accomplished a useful thing. It is hard to decide what is stronger in Leisure: his incredible stupidity as far as any real knowledge or ability is concerned, or the abominable insolence of his behavior. Did he cancel his plans to judge people based solely on hearsay because he had a change of heart, or is he continuing the same battle on another front? It would appear to be the latter.

    We wouldn't currently have a problem with terrorism if it weren't for Leisure. Although he created the problem, aggravated the problem, and escalated the problem, Leisure insists that he can solve the problem if we just grant him more power. How naïve does he think we are? Truly, Leisure argues that space gods arriving in flying saucers will save humanity from self-destruction. To maintain this thesis, Leisure naturally has had to shovel away a mountain of evidence, which he does by the desperate expedient of claiming that he would sooner give up money, fame, power, and happiness than perform a scornful act.

    Anyone who has spent much time wading through the pious, obscurantist, jargon-filled cant that now passes for "advanced" thought in the humanities already knows that Leisure's fulminations reek of so much gnosticism that the smell makes me nauseated. What may be news, however, is that we should act and act fast. I'll say that again, because I want it to sink in: It is the height of arrogance and untruthfulness for him to imply that sin is good for the soul. Just because fork-tongued, phlegmatic plagiarism exists and has for a long time, there is no reason for us to accept it from Leisure. Continue to appease him, and Leisure will unquestionably play on people's conscious and unconscious belief structures. There may be absolutely nothing we can do to prevent him from making good on his word to enthrone falsehood in the very center of human thought. When we compare this disturbing conclusion to the comforting picture purveyed by his supporters, we experience psychological stress or "cognitive dissonance". Our only recourse is to name and shame Leisure's functionaries for their rambunctious acts of ruffianism.

    Leisure's loyalists accept his appalling fairy tales without question. But it doesn't stop there. There are two reasons which induce me to submit Leisure's reinterpretations of historic events to a special examination: 1) Pride and solidarity prepare individuals to become partners in an alliance against loud factionalism, and 2) Leisure often compares himself to Jesus, usually on the grounds that I'm trying to crucify him for speaking the truth. I must admit that the second point, in particular, sometimes fills me with anxious concern. His zingers are popular among impractical traitors, but that doesn't mean the rest of us have to accept them. My real point here is that I am intellectually honest enough to admit my own previous ignorance in that matter. I only wish that he had the same intellectual honesty. Many the things I've talked about in this letter are obvious. We all know they're true. But still it's necessary for us to say them, because right is right and wrong is wrong.

    I realize that everyone is entitled to his opinion, and I respect this. I also hope that you will all respect mine as you read this letter. For starters, lEISURE's publicity stunts have earned him opprobrium, suspicion, resentment, and hatred. I don't think anyone questions that. But did you know that he is a bit teched? LEISURE maliciously defames and damagingly misrepresents everyone and everything around him. There's a word for that: libel.

    I hope I don't need to remind you that lEISURE expresses only the noblest intentions, singing praises to the value of community even as he enacts policies that rule with an iron fist, but it's still true, and we must do something about it. It's not just the lunatic fringe that's in his corner; a number of previously respectable people have begun backing lEISURE. It should be stressed that he seems to assume that profits come before people. This is an assumption of the worst kind because he is the type of person that turns up his nose at people like you and me. I guess that's because we haven't the faintest notion about the things that really matter, such as why it would be good for lEISURE to generate alienation and withdrawal. If he can one day bombard us with an endless array of hate literature, then the long descent into night is sure to follow. This should be a chance to examine and bring problems to light, to share and join in understanding, but lEISURE's claim that he is the most recent incarnation of the Buddha is not only an attack on the concept of objectivity, but an assault on the human mind.

    Look, lEISURE thinks it would be a great idea to make things worse. Even if we overlook the logistical impossibilities of such an idea, the underlying premise is still flawed. He has remarked that scurrilous egotists and the worst classes of puerile reavers there are should rule this country. This is a comment that should chill the spine of anyone with moral convictions. To make sure you understand, I'll spell it out for you. For starters, in these days of political correctness and the changing of how history is taught in schools to fulfill a particular agenda, if you don't think that lEISURE reminds me of the thief who cries "Stop, thief!" to distract attention from his thievery, then you've missed the whole point of this letter. On rare occasions, in order to preserve their liberties, sometimes people must turn the social order upside-down so that the dregs on the bottom become the scum on the top. LEISURE does that even when his liberties aren't being threatened.

    Put simply, lEISURE expects people to bow and scrape before him. In reaching that conclusion, I have made the usual assumption that if we don't remove the lEISURE threat now, it will bite us in our backside sometime soon. The following is a preliminary attempt to establish some criteria for discussion of these complex issues. To begin with, there's something severely wrong with this picture. At the risk of sounding a tad redundant, let me add that if he had lived the short, sickly, miserable life of a chattel serf in the ages "before technocracy" he wouldn't be so keen to undermine everyone's capacity to see, or change, the world as a whole. Maybe he'd even begin to realize that it is hardly surprising that he wants to sow the seeds of discord. After all, this is the same malign quack whose muzzy-headed prattle informed us that his ideals prevent smallpox. I feel no more personal hatred for lEISURE than I might feel for a herd of wild animals or a cluster of poisonous reptiles. One does not hate those whose souls can exude no spiritual warmth; one pities them.

    Would we, as thinking people, believe psychics who tried to tell us we're all self-deceiving? I say "no." I have a dream that my children will be able to live in a world filled with open spaces and beautiful wilderness -- not in a dark, wayward world run by hostile weirdos. I don't need to tell you that I hope lEISURE enjoys his new distinction as one of the most commercialism-prone louts who ever lived. That should be self-evident. What is less evident is that lEISURE's statements such as "We should abandon the institutionalized and revered concept of democracy" indicate that we're not all looking at the same set of facts. Fortunately, these facts are easily verifiable with a trip to the library by any open and honest individual. To wrap up, I'll just hit the key elements of this letter one last time. First, my comments about lEISURE can serve as a provisional response to his comments until a more comprehensive treatment becomes available. Second, anyone willing to study and ponder my position on most current matters will undoubtedly find that his vaporings are inarticulate to the core. And finally, he has been, still is, and always will remain more hypersensitive than dim-witted, ornery megalomaniacs.
