Hard on the heels of Phirehammer's repherence to phags, his selph-outing as the bigot I already knew he was, comes this from Monart Pon. This sort of stuff used to be standard from ARI types, including notorious closet cases. Largely, they've gotten over it. Monart & the Phirehammer Phlakes are now carrying the torch for mediaeval ignorance. Read & weep:
'The truth is this: Perigo, contrary to his boast of being "rationally passionate" and "passionately rational", is neither rational nor passionate -- not consistently so, not when it really counts. Claiming to be a "sense of life objectivist", he's trying to act out a self-contradiction. Objectivism is a philosophy, a wisdom of mind, a system of thought. A sense of life is a (fundamental) feeling in regards to one's life; it's not a philosophy. To feel one's way to wisdom, to philosophy, is to pervert one's mind and, consequently, also pervert one's sense of life. Thus, Perigo hides from the truth when it clashes with his feelings, unless admitting a truth serves to hide another more frightening truth.
'Perigo is neither rational nor romantic. I've encountered his phoniness some years ago in the first years of "SOLO" (after I was fooled into giving founding support to it and even to contribute money to his Free Radical group). I've encountered his phoniness again more recently when I introduced the album Concerto of Deliverance I produced, and then when I read about how Perigo and his cohorts unjustly treated Regi about his stance on homosexuality.
'Perigo's "homosexuality" is where his phoniness is most blatant. He's not a real sexual man, but pretends and feel he is. He's afraid of true sex -- true sex with a woman. The ultimate expression and actualization of the masculine potential is the sexual union with the feminine: a woman (just as ultimate femininity is in union with the masculine.) How can such a basic fact -- sex *means* a union of the feminine and the masculine -- how can such a basic fact be ignored, except by choice (however much incremental choices)? Whatever Perigo practices, it's not sexuality, nor is it romantic, nor rational.
'What's more despicable than Perigo's phoniness, is the phoniness of those who pretend with him. I continue to be surprised and disappointed at (and be wary of) who I discover those persons are. Perigo can be a litmus test of someone's honesty, of the regard for the highest value of truth.'
'Perigo doesn't mean "danger", Perigo is a false alarm.'
