“Stick with what you know best, so you don’t sound like a complete idiot”

Feedback in based on my recent podcast:

“I think you should have named the most latest episode abject stupidity, and lack of human decency. Stick with what you know best, so you don’t sound like a complete idiot. Now you can go ahead and read this email on your podcast like you’ve done to others in the past, but I think you should stop and think for a second that you might be annoying the very people you are expecting to money off of.”

A great excerpt from Ayn Rand, John Galt, in Atlas Shrugged:

“The symbol of all relationships among [rational] men, the moral symbol of respect for human beings, is the trader. We, who live by values, not by loot are traders, both in manner and spirit. A trader is a man who earns what he gets and does not give or take the undeserved. A trader does not ask to be paid for his failures, nor does he ask to be loved for his flaws. A trader does not squander his body as fodder, or his soul as alms. Just as he does not give his work except in trade for material values, so he does not give the values of his spirit – his love, his friendship, his esteem – except in payment and in trade for human virtue, in payment for his own selfish pleasure, which he receives from men he can respect. The mystic parasites who have, throughout the ages, reviled the trader and held him in contempt, while honoring the beggars and the looters, have known the secret motive of the sneers: a trader is the entity they dread – a man of justice.”

A good retort.
