I thought we had a deal

Alan or someone wrote and I agree:
"***"pragmatism" is political. Who's brand of "pragmatism" depends on who's agenda one is pursuing.***

Harv said he disagreed and then ran off with the idea as if it were his own:
(said Harv)

Harv said, "No"

In answer to that statement about pragmatism,
Harv wrote: "No"

Then he continued:
it depends on what we consider 'successful'. As it turns out, there are many kinds of success, so a complete pragmatic theory may not be fully possible (or at least it may not be neat and tidy).

The distinction between one atom and the same atom is perhaps too fine a distinction for Alan,
but I can see clearly what is going on...
