    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"

It does include the Pilgrims and the Indians, but the following will be news to most Americans: Stossel is right to start his column off by noting that we can thank private property for the fact that we have turkeys to eat at all.

    I find the very basic act of wanting to see the best in each other, even if we don't always agree on what that is, makes me love my Grandma, Sister, Parents and aunts on my mom's side.  We don't agree on much else though.  What do you all think of this one value we all have in common being the basis of the relationships?

    Reblogged:Empathy Is Selfish...

    So we should practice it much more often... Before I begin, let me point the reader to the definitions of empathy and selfishness, both of which I advocate and both of which are widely misunderstood. It is important to understand each term because doing so will help you understand in interesting connection I made when thinking about the best way to combat pseudoscience -- which is ultimately to help individuals become able to detect it for themselves. I am also writing this as much for myself
