And you might want to consider yourself in the description you assigned to me, projection maybe? I mean, really, you're the one quoting Eliot, right? In any case feeling important on an anonymous forum, I don't know how one would get there? Or do you think you're the only one who knows this anonymous?<quoted text>
"Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm-- but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves."
-- T. S. Eliot
Our joe is certainly consumed by a need to think well of himself.
Onward against those eeeevul righties, joe!
That sounds more like someone who is "consumed by a need think to think well of themselves." On the other hand, I personally think we should all strive to think well of ourselves. Not to the point of being consumed by it, though. I say go for it.
