  1. I disagree to that. "Older" Objectivists are mostly professionals that have no time to keep up with any forum. You have to identify the age range of your "older" Objectivists.
  2. Here are some rare Asian jewels that you guys need to discover or need to include in your list: From Korea: Sung Hi Lee From Japan: Yuko Ogura, Kyoko Fukada, Yukie Nakama and Erika Sawajiri From China: Ziyi Zhang My husband prefers Asian women, particularly Japanese women. He said that Asian women are extremely feminine because of their well emphasized petite features. I agree to that. That is why he is married to one.
  3. I sure do hope that by the time I have enough money, I would want Han Wu Shen to draw a portrait of myself. I like his paintings.
  4. I do hope so. As long as the bromides are still in the intellectual arena. I will not be surprised with these type of people - the purposeless ones.
  5. It has been years since I have heard plans or progress in producing an Atlas Shrugged movie. I think the problem is the script for the movie. For the script writing will be the most difficult task. I do not want to undercut the movie for almost all of the chapters in the book are extremely crucial. I would like to suggest a trilogy for Atlas Shrugged the movie. The subtitles will be: 1. Non-Contradiction 2. Either-Or 3. A is A As you have noticed, these are the major parts of the book. What do you think?
  6. By humoring a remarkable Intellectual Institute? To quote Ayn Rand: "Humor is a destructive element but its value and its morality depend on what it is that you are laughing at. To laugh at that which is good, at heroes, at values, and above all at yourself is monstrous... The worst evil you can do, psychologically, is to laugh at yourself. That means spitting in your own face."
  7. When I was young, my father was the only one who inspired me to go to America. Not my relatives who are already here because I rarely saw and talked to them. My father is pro-capitalist. I remember from my childhood how he keep instilling in me to excel in my studies to be able to go to America (for Immigration purposes). He explained to me the great standard of living here in America as to the lousy standard of living in the Philippines. He gave me a purpose to go here - which is to have a better life. Unfortunately, he is a mystic... like everyone else in that country.
  8. How about - I am a narcissistic Objectivist who always feels good when she sees her reflection in the mirror as a breathtaking young lady?
  9. Please define freedom of expression.
  10. But what if the guy does not like her? In the first place, a bar is not a great meeting place - if you are searching for a quality alter ego. And why would you use tests such as "eye contacting" when you can approach your prospect right away and start a conversation to get to know him/her? "Tests" are just a waste of time. Be direct... be straightforward.. do not play mind/hint games.
  11. I don't. And the reason is free will .
  12. Are you referring to 'women' in general? or all women? I never test my husband's weakness (for I know he does not have any). I think you should classify your 'women' as to being an irrational or rational one. Hint: Reasoning is impossible with irrational women.
  13. I do not believe in ghosts. There is no valid evidence of it, as far as I know. As to arguing with one’s beliefs, there are people that you can argue with.... and there are those that you cannot. It is not your moral responsibility to correct the beliefs of your family neither someone else's. Never jeopardize the truth in fear of hurting someone else’s feelings especially your family. I typically ask them… ‘Is there evidence in the existence of ghosts? Prove it. If none, therefore they do not exist.’
  14. Greetings! I am very busy and I rarely log in. But whenever I do, I always spend hours reading threads. The first Ayn Rand book I read was Anthem, when I was in college. I grew up in a very collectivist and mystic society - the Philippines. I have no "Objectivist" influences in the Philippines. I personally shut myself from the environment I lived in before I move in United States last October 2001. When I was young, I created a perfect world in my mind - the Atlantis in Atlas Shrugged - where I am free to think and be an Objectivist. I have always lived most of the Objectivists’ virtues before I even discovered Objectivism. That is why I am tolerant to ‘potential’ Objectivists. I may be one of the first Filipina who abandoned the horrible mysticism that is predominant in the Philippines. I am proud of it. The first Objectivist I met was my husband, whom I met in United States. I came to America because of money. I am currently taking a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Accounting at Portland State University. I already have a Business Management Degree and I am narrowing my field into Accounting, to focus more on managing the financial resources of a private firm. It is interesting to be in a forum to pick minds with. I am grateful to the founder of this forum. More power to the “Prime Movers”!
  15. Another funny thing is.. I remember I saw this futuristic cop movie Demolition Man. Wherein a character in the movie mentioned that their current president(which suppose to be in the future) is Arnold Schwarzenegger. I might vote for him if he runs for the presidency.
