    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"

    Diverting the Blame for September 11th

    AutoJC
    By AutoJC,
    Excelent commentary by Onkar Ghate Why is it that this bogus commission isn't investigating the most obvious problem with America dealing with terrorism? The 9-11 commission thinks that 9-11 could have been prevented with better intelligence. Problem is, American interests have been attacked since 1979, when Iran fell to the fundamentalists and the American Embassy was stormed. Look to the 9-11 commission to come up with the wrong conclusions.

    By Capleton,
    I would like to get some comments on the article that is linked below. In my view Mark drops the context in his desperate effort to form an effective critique (he failed!). The Troubled Economics of Ayn Rand http://www.mskousen.com/Books/Articles/0101aynrand.html

    Are Mormons Polytheists?

    MisterSwig
    By MisterSwig,
    In researching Mormons I've learned that they don't believe in the Trinity. Rather, they believe that there are separate personages in Heaven, namely Heavenly Father, Heavenly Mother, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. According to Mormons, there are other entities in Heaven, but those four get the most attention. My question then: Does this make Mormonism a polytheistic religion? Or can it properly still be considered monotheistic? (As far as I can tell, Mormons deny the charge of polytheism.)

    By Guest RationalEgoist,
    Its good to be here. Though I haven't had much chance to look around, there seems to be quite a good amount of activity here... often a good sign. Anyhow, I am an actor and part-time writer (more on than off) living in the Twin Cities. I'm 31, and before I make this seem like some dating profile, know that I already found my Dagny (in intellect, accomplishment and purpose... Oh, and a knockout besides ), lol... well I'll be posting. Ciao RE$
