+While, some people have commented or implied that they liked it or agreed
+with it a whole, some people gave even more positive commentary. For some
+reason, people felt that
+<a href="the-eternal-jew/change_the_world.html#i_am_the_messiah">“I am the
+Messiah”</a> was a very big hyperbole, and focused on that, despite the fact
+that I explain it there clearly. What a success! Another one
+<a href="http://philosophy.livejournal.com/1818045.html?thread=55036605#t55036605">commented</a> that
+<q>There is nothing here of positive value. The pitiful creature who is
+responsible for the production of these texts should have been drowned at
+birth; indeed, its continued survival constitutes prima facie damning evidence
+for the Problem of Evil.</q> It's great that I'm so good at being bad.

+But perhaps the greatest compliment was made by a commenter on my original
+post announcing it saying that “If this is a work of philosophy, then
+<b>“Little Red Riding Hood”</b> is an epic novel”. How is that a compliment?
+Let's compare “Little Red Riding Hood” to even the greatest novel of all
+times, Dostoyevsky’s
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime_and_Punishment"><i>Crime
+and Punishment</i></a>, then:
+</p>
+
+<ol>
+
+<li>
+It is read by parents to their children at an early age - often the first
+story they read. People read <i>Crime and Its Punishment</i> only much later
+if at all.
+</li>
+
+<li>
+Children usually like it so much that they want to hear it again and again. Many
+people are so bored by <i>Crime and Its Punishment</i> that they don't want
+to hear it again.
+</li>
+
+<li>
+More people have read Little Red Riding Hood than Crime and Its Punishment.
+Much more.
+</li>
+
+<li>
+Little Red Riding Hood’s message (that you should not trust strangers
+and tell them about your whereabouts) is clearer from the story and, for
+better or for worse, was widely more applied than the message of
+<i>Crime and Its Punishment</i>, which I'm not sure if I fully understand.
+</li>
+
+</ol>
+
+<p>
+So I think it's clear that “Little Red Riding Hood” is the greatest piece
+of literature in the modern age, by far eclipsing all novels. Calling “The
+Eternal Jew”, the “Little Red Riding Hood of Philosophy” is the one of
+the greatest compliments I can possibly get.
