12. i dunno

that chapter you are quoting made me see myself way too much for comfort

"Handicapped By Obstinacy" (p. 48), yes I was
"prejudiced" and "unreasoning prejudice" (p. 48) was I prejudiced?? i had to ask
"Rather Vain" (p. 49), yep, that's me
"No Reasonable Conception Whatever" (p. 49), true
"Biased And Unreasonable" (p. 51), maybe...
"Prey To Misery And Depression" (p. 52), for sure that was me
"Couldn't Make A Living" (p. 52), me again
"Full of Fear" (p. 52), me again
"Our Ideas Did Not Work" (p. 52), i sure couldn't stop drinking
"We Couldn't Quite Step Ashore" (p. 53), nope, couldn't buy that "God Stuff'
"Leaning Too Heavily On Reason" (p. 53), was I?
"Abjectly Faithful To The God Of Reason" (p. 54), again, was I?
"Whirling On To A Destiny Of Nothingness" (p. 54), that was a depressing thought.....
"Fooling Ourselves" (p. 55), and on and on.

you may not have these issues in your life and more power to you. I had most of these and more, so again I was desperate enough to lay it aside and get on with the action of cleaning up my life.
