Probably he asked because I'm friends with Diana Hsieh, who has dissociated herself from the Center. I think very highly of Diana, but I don't see eye to eye with her on this topic. She re-read some of David Kelley's writings about Objectivism, and now is convinced that David got key things wrong, and that this has led to deep problems at TOC.
(The Kelley works in question are an essay called A Question Of Sanction, and a short book originally called Truth And Toleration, but now, with some re-editing, called The Contested Legacy of Ayn Rand. The Question of Sanction essay was included as an appendix in Truth and Toleration, and I imagine it still appears at the back of The Contested Legacy.)
I have had my criticisms of the Center. But I have not turned away from it. Heck, I emceed the Center's summer seminar closing dinner.
I didn't agree with quite all of what Kelley wrote in his essay and book. But I agreed with a lot of it, and I liked what I took to be the thrust of it. I have not changed my views on this.
