    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"

    Problems in Britain - Am Shocked!

    By Zirjin,
    I wish this was a satire, I really wish it was. But unfortunately, from what I can tell, it is true. I even checked to make sure it wasn't April the 1st yet. We locked you up in jail for 25 years and you were innocent all along? That’ll be £80,000 please Normally I am a positive person, seeing that article however, I am shocked & angry beyond belief and am wondering at the moment if I am in a dream/nightmare but when I pinch myself, I know I am awake. I hope that insane stuff is abolished soon, and doesn't spread out of Britains borders to Australia/USA or anywhere else for that matter.

    Hello from Philadelphia.

    By AspiringObjectivist,
    I've been browsing the board for a while and I'm very interested in a lot of the discussions and intellects that I've seen; it should be fun to converse with you all, and I look forward to it. I'm a young male in Philadelphia, and I'm a big reader, writer, and football player.

    Hey from Texas

    By Areactor,
    It was probably rude to come in just posting things without an introduction. Well I’m here in Houston Texas. I’ve been reading Rand for two years now. I’m extremely interested in her philosophy and spreading the love (a.k.a.) logic. I visit the Ludwig Von Mises Institute and Capmag site on a daily basis. I’m just a radical for Capitalism though I’m still in need for more learning.
