I'm doing no such thing.  I am simply pointing out that the claims you
are making for mKR don't hold water.  It is uninterpreted syntax with,
at best, a vague, informal natural language semantic gloss.  It does not
meet several minimal conditions that a genuinely usable KR language must
meet.    (02)

No, thanks, I'm afraid that's just the problem.  All you've got, beyond
some syntax, are intuitions.    (04)

I know Rand's views quite well.  I find the connections you draw between
her work and KR, well, tenuous.    (06)

Thanks for the discussion.  Best of luck with mKR.    (07)
