    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"

    Reblogged:2019 Wants Its Pandemic Panic Back

    By Gus Van Horn blog,
    If you thought the media were done trying to make you panic about covid -- or just want a trip down memory lane -- you can mosey on over to MSN. They're carrying a Boston Globe piece that sounds like it could have been written in late 2019 or early 2020, when we knew little about covid, and were still facing a virgin soil pandemic. Yes, the author mentions Paxlovid and grudgingly admits that we're no longer using refrigerator trucks as makeshift morgues, but get a load of this:But for some miss

    Association Of Objectivist Businessmen

    By scottkursk,
    I always have seen mention that they existed and saw reference of where Kelly was asked to leave but other than that, I never really heard anything about them. I know that people in business, speaking from 1st hand experience here tend to be more "practical" and are the ones who need philosophy the most. It seems logical that businessmen, especially Objectivists at that would have some sort of formal or informal for that matter organization that allows us to get together and discuss matt

    Any Objectivists in the Florida Panhandle?

    By goldstandard,
    Hey, I am just wondering if there is anyone out there who lives in the Florida panhandle who would be interested in joining a meetup group I started. I am starting to think I am the only one out there... Florida Panhandle Objectivists

    How much education do we OWE our children?

    Doug Morris
    By Doug Morris,
    It seems pretty clear that neglecting a child's nutritional needs can rise to the level of abuse or neglect, in extreme cases justifying government intervention to protect the rights of the child. What about the child's educational needs?  Are we obligated to see that the child learns the three R's?  Are we obligated to see that the child learns anything else?

    The Presuppositionalist Argument for the Axioms of Objectivism

    By intrinsicist,
    Hello again, I wanted make a thread to discuss my latest post from my blog Active Objectivism.  I think this form of argument, known as "presuppositionalism" or a "transcendental argument", is crucial to philosophy, and largely unrecognized and unappreciated. Ever since Kant it has been fallaciously thought only to prove things about man's own mind or perspective (Kant's so-called "transcendental idealism", aka. the "Copernican revolution"), thus damning the science of metaphysics

    A Friday Hodgepodge 1. I like railroads and was a model railroader as a teen. Moving around a lot and other priorities have kept me from resuming the hobby for a long time. But I do enjoy a good article on railroads from time to time, and a post from Alpha Rail about railroad ballast fits the bill, explaining why tracks "have crushed stones alongside them." While I had a general guess about the purpose of ballast, it had never occurred to me that there might be good reason to have never seen sm

    Reblogged:Two Lawless Parties

    Gus Van Horn blog
    By Gus Van Horn blog,
    Two law professors warn that insofar as Donald Trump found ways to ignore or work around the law (they call it "law avoision"), Ron DeSantis may be better at doing it. That is to say, DeSantis may combine a similar contempt for the law with being more methodical than Trump and better at getting away with it. This contention parallels my own concern that, while DeSantis often seems like he could be better as a President than Trump (while managing to appeal to his base), he could be worse than

    Reblogged:'Woke' vs. Taking the Initiative

    Gus Van Horn blog
    By Gus Van Horn blog,
    There is a part-interesting, part-amusing, and entirely predictable battle going on over the meaning of the term woke, as Tauseef Mustafa discusses at Digital Journal before concluding that the politicians don't know what it means:Image by Danny Burke, via Unsplash, license.This is in line with what I have been able to glean on the subject, although I bet one could also find examples of populist/fascist conservative types using using the term to insult free market advocates. I have noticed a co
