  1. Neetchuh. Well I ordered "Human, all too human" and "Beyond good and evil", hopefully these will give me a clearer idea of what he was raving about and why it is so amazing.
  2. http://www.cxoadvisory.com/gurus/Cramer/ I would be careful of following any investment advice, even if from someone who has a track record of making money in the markets. You can still loose money even when getting good advice. Also IBD has some great stock research resources such as proprietary industry rankings, relative strength, fundamentals, accumulation/distribution(from institutions), technical strength etc which are to be used in combination with their CANSLIM method of self-investing.
  3. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/arti...in_page_id=1770 Jews included? This is not something I normally read but its totally absurd!
  4. Well I'm half-way through Neitzsche's book and I don't get why people like it so much. Sure, there are some nice pieces... (The soothsayer) But most of the time I find myself asking: "wtf is he talking about?". I will have people quote me shit like "to give birth to a dancing star one should have chaos within oneself" then say how amazing he is. Umm, well I have chaos in myself all the time and no dancing stars are bursting out of me. Am I missing something here? apart from the poetic language(which I cannot understand most of the time) what is so good about this book?
  5. I am looking for books and or dvds on Thomas Jefferson. Any recommendations? Also I noticed there is a HBO documentary on John Adams. Is anybody watching this, and what do they think?
  6. ManOfSteel: I have been in a similar situation to yours. Anything technical that required repair or fixing was my responsibility(it all started when I decided I wanted to build my own computer). I once even had family friends ask me to fix their computer, and I did, only to later have them accusing me of destroying it! From then on I just pretended to have no clue. ever. I forgot everything. "hmm, gee, I really don't know how to fix this". And if I was harassed at home I would kindly show them a help file and struggle to understand its contents along with them. I no longer waste my time fixing anyones computers or doing anything of that sort. I help when it is needed, but I never spend hours doing work someone else should be or is capable of doing.
  7. When have you felt good? what moments, what events?
  8. A question related, which only occurred to me now, by voluntarily joining an army which conscripts citizens am I not morally sanctioning it? it would seem so as I am under no compulsion.
  9. I don't know about all of you but at my age and with my friends its quite common to watch or listen to pirated media. In such a situation, where no force is involved, are you being immoral by watching the dvds with your friends or staying at a party where pirated music is being played? It would seem absolutely ridiculous and impractical to me to leave every party or friends place whenever this occurs but I cannot give any reasons as to why it is moral to stay. Am I not being a hypocrite if I refuse to download music/movies and then give moral sanction to my friends by watching? You cannot say you disagree with it and continue watching because that is also hypocritical. You can't say you value your friendship more than reality/justice? No one is forcing you to listen so you can't claim it is a situation where no morality applies. What is the thing to do? why? Objectivism is supposed to be practical so how is this situation handled?
  10. Could someone post specific chapters or references to books or other media which may assist in resolving the PP?
  11. Informative as usual John. Wont be necessary to dig up the RBA publication - I'll have enough of that to do in the rest of my diploma
  12. A related question: When the Reserve contracts the money supply in an inflationary enviroment this cannot be a permanent contraction, only a temporary halt in the growth of money supply as the more bonds they issue or whatever it is they use these days to contract the supply the more they will have to pay later. Right?
  13. What is the significance of this emotion? Boredom could be described as a lack of energy, lack of motivation and maybe a lack of challenge. I think. Have any of you professing to be Objectivist ever experienced boredom in their productive field of work? their relationships?
