    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"

    My Free Will Theory

    By MisterSwig,
    I created a blog to introduce my theory on free will: https://freewilltheory.blogspot.com/2019/04/free-will-is-learned-skill.html?m=1 My goal is to identify the necessary steps in the development of free will, starting from birth. I briefly discuss reflexes, feelings, and purpose, and how they relate to gaining control over one's body and mind. I appreciate any comments or criticism, placed here or on the blog.

    Anyone else annoyed by ARI's new YouTube video style?

    By JJJJ,
    ARI has posted these two videos on YouTube recently, with a new style: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6ilV2J8XnI...re=channel_page I dont really think that ideas as important as the ones being discussed, should be presented in a cheesy ad-like form like that. I dont know if this is just a personal opinion, but I usually get turned off really fast if i see "slick salesmen" type ads with shiny lights and rehearsed speeches because that gives the impression that what is being said

    Do Objectivists truly believe Objectivism will ever be more than a philosophy of the few?

    By TruthSeeker946,
    Do Objectivists truly believe people will ever behave like Objectivists on a mass scale?  Objectivism teaches us how the world ought to be and how man ought to live but we find ourselves in a world which is nothing like it, and never has been.  If mankind can never achieve the Objectivist world Rand envisioned, or even get anywhere near it (where the majority are true Objectivists), then it is surely inadequate as a political philosophy. Of course we can never know for sure but history
