The following includes three sequential parts: first is my Individual Anarchist statement, followed by Don’s response to it, and lastly my response to Don. The Individual Anarchist statement is at the very end, which I suggest reading first. Don and I audited philosophy classes at the University of California, Irvine, and the mention of Martin and Ermanno refers to the first names of two of our professors. At the time, Don was associate clinical professor of psychiatry at UCI and is also in private practice. My mention of Anna is a reference to my wife, currently of 59 years.

Thank you for your response to my “Individual Anarchist” position statement. The points you make and questions you’ve asked have given me an excellent opportunity to evaluate, reconsider and memorialize some of my views. I’ve responded to each of your questions and statements in sequential order as they appear in your e-mail letter. I’ve included some responses to conversations we’ve had in which the subject matter relates to those in your e-mail. Additionally, there are tangential items that came to mind while addressing your letter that I thought should be included in my response. In many cases, I have asked questions, some are rhetorical, while others may give you an inclination to respond. Of course, your comments and criticisms are always welcome and instructive.
The full text of your letter immediately follows, and my Individual Anarchist statement is at the end. Your letter is restated in segments before each of my responses; they are indented and in italics. I have underlined the key points of each segment to which my responses are directed.
