  1. Hero W/ Jet Li

    Perhaps you should read my post again. I spoke of rapid technological advancements occuring before "the rise of the backward Confucian philosophy". Not before the birth of Confucius himself, who, in his time, was not well known. The rapid technological advancements I spoke of include the printing press and gunpowder. Confucius' philosphy concentrated on the past of this world. Not the present, nor the future. From the source: This is simply not true.
  2. Hero W/ Jet Li

    Are you serious? The ideas of Confucius had devastatingly adverse effects on China. The rise of the backward Confucian philosophy coincided with a total halt to the rapid technological advancements that China had experienced in the centuries before the establishment of Confucianism. Confucius' assertion that the views of a wise man remained forever right totally destroyed the Chinese thirst for knowledge and innovation.
  3. Individuals who attempt to twist Objectivism in the manner of TOC aren’t tolerated on the Capitalist Paradise boards. Not because of the actual positions they take but because they are lying by associating themselves with Objectivism. I must note that the forum was never intended as a place where everyone agrees with each other on every issue that comes under discussion. It is first and foremost a place to discuss capitalism, not necessarily Objectivism. There is already a quality Objectivist-only forum (this one) and I felt no need to create another. However, I have ensured that all of the administrator’s are Objectivists. Non-Objectivist advocates of unrestricted capitalism are generally welcome, but never put on the administrator staff. http://www.importanceofphilosophy.com/ This website (that inspector linked to) includes a “reading list” section that links to articles by Kelly and Swan. Also, under the “links” section you will find the URL’s of both the ARI and TOC.
  4. Allan Greenspan

    From browsing through Bob Woodward’s "Maestro", I gathered the following: Greenspan was a close friend/associate of Rand but never an Objectivist. Rand admired him for his intelligence, quick-mind and economic insights but they debated various issues. I think it was Branden who gave him the nickname "Undertaker", because he maintained that his existence was not absolutely certain. Although he eventually admitted that he did exist. He frequently attended social functions and appeared to Rand a little preoccupied with his status among the elite.
  5. British Comedies

    I liked The Office.
  6. Ronald Reagan

    More quotes: "She [Rand] disapproved of Ronald Reagan, whom she considered a typical conservative in his attempt to link politics and religion; she had refused to vote for him." (From The Passion of Ayn Rand, by Barbara Branden) "Dear Mr. Vandersteel: Thanks very much for pamphlet. Am an admirer of Ayn Rand but hadn't seen this study. Sincerely, Ronald Reagan" (From Reagan: A life in letters)

    Regarding Goldwater, this is from Rand's Play Boy interview in 1964 http://www.ellensplace.net/ar_pboy.html

    I am starting to see what you mean. All Marxists are now to be either banned or restrcited.
  9. Capitalist paradise forum

    Some of our top posters are Marxists. Any one else going to join and help set things straight?

    I went to high school with that guy. He spends most of his time playing computer games... a typical armchair activist. I have given him a warning.
  11. Capitalist paradise forum

    Thanks Praxus! It looks great. Nice choice of quote as well. BlackSabbath, Thankyou for joining. I am reluctant to ban anyone at these early stages but sometime in the future I may restrict the Marxists to the Anti-Capitalism section of the site.

    Haha I just watched him singing "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" on his website. No one could possibly take him seriously.
