Hello everyone. I'm a British student and I'm fairly new to Objectivism -- I "converted" to capitalist libertarianism two years or so again after recanting socialism (I read the Communist Manifesto and decided it was a load of rubbish ). I am very interested in philosophy -- metaphysics, ethics, politics and so on. I was interested to read about Rand's theories, particularly since I've been a fan of Nietzsche for a while and I can see clear commonalities between the two. I'm especially fond of Objectivist epistemology, which seems to identify pretty much exactly with what I believe. So, hello all, hopefully you don't mind a newbie to Objectivism.
(As for my general interests... I'm interested in history -- all history, but particularly modern, and especially that of the Soviet Union. I'm also interested in the theory and practice of totalitarianism.)
