Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently posted to the discussion thread for another blog entry at this site:
All you said was “timing might make a difference”. Not why it would make a difference. Do you think anyone at Reddit ponders and deliberates and soul-searches like that before deciding to post a comment?
I certainly don’t think that anyone else at Reddit soul-searches like that.
I am in different circumstances than anyone else.
This is world-changing stuff. If I am permitted to post honestly at Reddit, then anyone who wants to will be able to post honestly at Reddit. And if it becomes acceptable for people to post honestly at Reddit, people are going to insist on recognition of their right to post honestly at lots of other places. Then the textbooks will be rewritten. Then we will be able to bring this economic crisis to an end and to prevent future economic crises.
None of that can happen without exposing Mel Lindauer and John Greaney and Jack Bogle. It’s all very, very, very, very good stuff. Everyone alive in this country today needs to have these things happen. But Lindaurer and Greaney and Bogle don’t much like the idea of being exposed. Bogle possesses great wealth and power and influence and he is not averse to using it to keep Lindauer and Greaney from being exposed. So, if the leaders of the Reddit board elect to permit me to post honestly re the errors in Greaney’s retirement study, we are going to see fireworks. You know that, I know that, the people at Reddit know that, everyone knows that.
I carry the weight of a lot of responsibilities on my shoulders, Anonymous. I would like to bring the economic crisis to an end. I would like to see the textbooks rewritten. I would like to get your prison sentence reduced to the extent possible. I would like to change the world in a very, very, very positive way.
How I play it can make a difference. So I engage in some soul-searching when I have decisions to make as to when I will put up my first Reddit post.
No one else is in these same circumstances. No one else has had a 15-year Campaign of Terror led by Mel Lindauer and John Greaney and Jack Bogle directed at him. Others are in a position where they can just dash off a post. I am not in such circumstances. My job is to play the cards that I have been dealt to the best of my ability.
I hope that helps a small bit, my long-time Buy-and-Hold friend.
