    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"

    Conceptually, what is "the Future"?

    suv
    By suv,
    We all have an implicit sense of the 'future', but in Epistemology how is the word 'future' defined? Some people loosely use the word, in a sense that it has no connection to the present. As if the future is going to be set in a different universe. What is the future? And how can it be grasped, in terms of what one is concious of, till the moment? Another question: Is there a word for: 'what one is concious of', 'the items in reality that one is conscious of' ? Something like cognosants or something?

    What does the successful man owe society?

    By Guest DagnySofia,
    What, if anything, does the individual owe to society. Does a person's station in society— whether a person is rich or poor, old or young, etc.— have an effect on what is owed to the community?

    Hi -- My name is economica (aka sharon-brigitte) and run a website tracking the global bankruptcy, a impending disaster linked to the fact that our currencies are debased and where you will find many lies exposed proving that self-interest does indeed rules the planet. www.moneyfiles.org Alas I cant volunteer because I already work 5 hours per day on my own website which hasnt allowed me to earn anything..... yet. The philosophies I embrace are: libertarianism, objectivism, extropism and transhumanism. I wish you the best with your endeavors and promise to drop by as much as possible. Cheers!

    Happy Birthday David!
