challenges and difficulties
Randy Gardner has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Gardner is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Randy Gardner takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
