    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"

    By Sir Llama,
    Hi. I'm from hawaii, and I go to the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I'm 19 and an ICS major. I also play alot of basketball and tennis. I actually got interested in objectivism through a forum debate. It was a whole bunch of people debating the existence of God, and the thread went on for pages and pages. There was an objectivist there, one of three, who was debating with the rest of the people, and I found that his opinions made perfect sense. It made alot more sense than any argumen

    By epheme,
    My name is Amy, but you can call me epheme. I'm a student at VCU in Richmond, VA. I've been interested in Objectivism since about 1997 or 1998, when I came across the Fountainhead. I'd always been a Libertarian, and it took me a while to realise that Libertarianism was only a subset of a much larger system of thought. So, once I came out of the closet as a full-fledged Objectivist, things became much clearer I'm helping start a campus Objectivist club here at VCU, and I'm quite plea

    What do you think about NASA?

    By DavidV,
    It seems like every single blogger on the internet has an ode of some sort to the downed space shuttle. Not all are positive -- my friend Laurel (http://www.rationalmind.net/economistress) things that it's time to privatize (i.e. close) NASA because it's a waste of taxpayer's money. I think it's important not to confuse the spirit of discovery that allowed man to go to space, and the particular method by which that is being done today. The International Space Station, (whose massive cost over

    If there is anyone out there that has obtained audio (I prefer CD versions) of items from the Ayn Rand Bookstore and is considering putting them on e-bay, please let me know. I may go direct or can at least be aware that it is up for grabs at another site (Amazon, e-bay, etc.).

    Evolution: "it's only a theory!"

    DavidV
    By DavidV,
    (this is in reply to http://bpnews.net/bpnews.asp?ID=15206) Greetings, Far be it from me to attack an argument for a war with Iraq, but your piece did not use the terms "theory," “evidence," and most importantly, "belief" properly. The proper approach to determining facts, whether it is the theory of evolution or Saddam's possession of WMD’s is to apply the scientific process in order to reach conclusions -- not relying on "faith" or "refusing to believe" something. In general, t

    By bidmeadj,
    Hey, My name is Jennifer Bidmead and I saw this site discussed on the OCN posts. Not a big talker, but I'm interested in what will come of this site; it's an awesome idea. I'm preparing for graduation from college this semester, I'm so glad! My major is Graphic Design, I work in both print and web... so if anything related to graphics or layout is needed for this site, maybe I can at least offer suggestions. That said, I am an Objectivist, I've been for about 2 years (virtually j
