     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

  • Rand's Philosophy in Her Own Words

    • "Metaphysics: Objective Reality"Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed/Wishing won’t make it so." "The universe exists independent of consciousness"
    • "Epistemology: Reason" "You can’t eat your cake and have it, too." "Thinking is man’s only basic virtue"
    • "Ethics: Self-interest" "Man is an end in himself." "Man must act for his own rational self-interest" "The purpose of morality is to teach you[...] to enjoy yourself and live"
    • "Politics: Capitalism" "Give me liberty or give me death." "If life on earth is [a man's] purpose, he has a right to live as a rational being"

    Hello Objectivists

    By PlasticCarrot,
    Hi, my name is Rebecca Artis, and I'm graduating from the U Of Arizona in Tucson this May. I'm glad this forum is available, I've been here once but haven't come back in a while, I hope it has gotten off the ground. Best, Rebecca

    A New Name

    By RationalEgoistSG,
    I've decided to change the name that I use because it is not right to label myself with Rand's name because only she has the right to do that. So from now on, my post name will be RationalEgoistSG, and you can find me on AIM there.

    By Guest theDude,
    Hi everybody. I guess I'll get right to it. My real name is Mike, and I first started reading Ayn Rand in 2001 after seeing Yaron Brook on CNN. In the fall I will be a freshman at Rutgers University. I'm looking forward to some good conversations. If you want to know more than ask, otherwise that's it for now.

    Board default of topics shown

    By AshRyan,
    I have a suggestion that I think would make the board a little nicer (but hey, it's your board ). The board defaults are apparently set to only show topics from the last thirty days in each forum. That makes it so that if you click on a forum in which there are no topics less than a month old, it says that the forum is empty. It's a pretty easy thing to change that myself (from "the last 30 days" to "the beginning"), but if that was set as the board default, then I wouldn't have to do it every time I entered a forum and wanted to find an older topic. Does that make sense? It's just a minor issue, but it would be cool if you could change it. Thanks!
