Ernst, I am not saying your work is meaningless. I am saying my[1] work is meaningless because you have reduced me to a typist - you no longer talk to me or are connected[2] to me or include me in anything - I no longer believe in my heart that the struggle comes first - for _you_. If the struggle came first for you, you would not discard my contribution[3] - which has value. I know what I can do if only you will let me. Do you realize we haven't talked 5[4] words since New Years? Is that meaningful work? I. [5,6]

Irene Zündel's comments:

1. If her work is meaningless why does she get so many fan letters?

2. she is always begging for an opportunity to establish emotional ties.

3. nonsense. you stroke her ego ad nauseum telling her she is valuable and you admire her etc.

4. She is too snarky and critical of you to converse with! She can't communicate by calling here because she won't be professional and civil to me!

5. my female and wifely advice -- tell her her writing makes an impact and reiterate it is valuable to you and the cause - reiterate if she were focused and professional and able to call on the telephone and work w/me and others, you would be glad to converse with her. Her emotional tirades weary you and make you loathe to communicate and share. She alienates herself! if she can write and behave professionally and focus on using her talents to win converts and inspire her z gram readers and help communicate your struggle to the world, her work will be meaningful. tell her to pull herself up by her bootstraps emotionally as you do. you aren't here to constantly soother her emotions. [within a heart] I love you EZ.

6. She can't work for you unless she is a bed mate! She doesn't "have" you, so she has no gut for work.
