Philosophy went terribly astray with the likes of Bertrand Russell. It
became a linguistic nightmare which marked the end of philosophy.
Philosophy in the traditional sense is nothing more than an idle speculation
on life, its truths, values and moralities. It has to do with how we should
best live our lives. What is there about this that you do not understand?

You are a workingman pure and simple. However, you have the potential to
become another Eric Hoffer. Hang in there and do not neglect the reading of
books and, who knows, maybe someday you can be Great like Me!
