    Objectivism Is The Everyman's Philosophy

    In the universe, what you see is what you get,

    figuring it out for yourself is the way to happiness,

    and each person's independence is respected by all

    In 1961 Ayn Rand gave her view on how to solve the racial problems in the South, which at that time was still segregated.
