  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 115)...

    I fail to see how the conclusions in the book can be anything but stifling to the creative human mind. Isn’t Ishmael asking us to just give up and live at the whim of the world around us?

    ...and the response:

    Do some reading about Leaver peoples and see if they live at the whim of the world around them. Or if that sounds like too much work, go to the arts section of your local bookstore and look at the many books devoted to the arts of Leaver peoples. I don't think you'll see evidence there of stifled minds.
