    I wonder if American's tendency to believe in the power of the individual is correlative at all to our religious habits.

    Bitter? I'm not bitter towards anyone. I have NOTHING against either Lark or Beorn personally (how can I - I don't know them lol). It just bugs me that they put my opinions down as "self-evidently wrong" and give no justification for such a conclusion. They aren't even interested in having a discussion about it. It's just "I disagree, go away!"

    I wouldn't say moreso, that is (was) just the by product of living in such an advanced and powerful society.

    Haha, I was joking with my use of the word "bitter" I dont you have nothing against them, I was pointing out that there was a misunderstanding somewhere.

    In school, we are taught that the American belief in the individual stems from the Puritan idea that success in life wins god's favor and so a good life after death.

    Puritans had no interest in earning God's favor. They believed they were God's chosen people.

    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    In all fairness, I think Beorn does try to argue, even if only by using word tricks. Lark never argues; he holds monologues.
