KEN WILBER ON HIMSELF:
"I think everybody should love me, and when someone doesn’t, I get nervous. So, as a child, I overcompensated like crazy. Class president, valedictorian, even captain of the football team. A frantic dance for acceptance, an attempt to have everybody love me." - from Geoffrey Ward's enlightening book, Stripping the Gurus, posted here as a sample chapter. (hat-tip, Coolmel)

I'd admire this candor if I didn't think that he wrote this so that readers would admire his candor. Given the level of meanness, vitriol, nastiness, and insult directed by him to myself and my wife - this after 16 months of tireless volunteer leadership as the IU-Art Director - my most immediate reaction to reading this is that it is pathetic. He exhausted my sympathy for him the moment he, in response to no insult whatsoever from me, said I had a 'big fat ego', that he would return me to my 'relative obscurity', and called Hannah 'petulant', after she withdrew a video donation after continued bungled management by WilberNaked. And since a whole lot of people appear to not like Wilber anymore (myself, my family, and my friends included), it appears that the true fear-based Wilber has yet to rear its ugly shiny head. Look out above.
