If Bert is an 'epistemologist' why can he not grasp the _FACT_ that
'objectivity' is merely a faulty construct? He can read all the Ayn
Rand he wants to, but that sort of nonsense was completely refuted
many years ago and no amount of revisionism will ever change this.
Moreover, if Bert was at all adept in the field of epistemology he
would have read works by Gregory Bateson, Humberto Maturana, etc., 
and know that 'objectivity' is non-existent! He can count American
dollars until he dies, but the value of each will never be held
constant.
