    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

    Sick Republics

    By Gabriel,
    All "democracies" today are actually republics... citizens don't choose on particular issue, but rather they choose representatives to choose for them, every 4 years or so. Here in Romania, we have parliamentary, local and presidential elections comming up, and I'm sickened by the whoring of the candidates to each and every group or faction or power broker. The debate is free from any actual ideological content, being just about a random bunch of floating opinions on concrete issues:

    Colin Powell and the Department of Appeasement

    Kitty Hawk
    By Kitty Hawk,
    No wonder Democrats want Rumsfeld gone, and Powell in his place. That way America will be sold down the river in the blink of an eye. The State Department's negotiator with North Korea is trying to reward the North Korean's blackmail by resuming construction of the Clinton era Light Water Reactor deal.

I noticed that some people are senior members and others are juniors, etc. What are the qualifications??? Anyhow, hope to have some interesting conversations in the future, Megan

    Bush's Shameful Assault Against Gay Marriage

    By AutoJC,
    George W. Bush has succeeded in taking Ronald Reagan's place as the faith-based demagogue of the Right. As you are all aware, his latest assault on individual rights is this constitutional amendment to ban gays from entering upon the legal entity of marriage. I Agree with Michale Hurd on criticizing this latest anti-individualist move And if that's not enough, Bush now wants to give our tax dollars in the form of government subsidies to "faith-based" (i.e. religious) programs; go


    By danielshrugged,
    I have always had mixed feelings about dating and/or beginning romantic relationships generally. Is the purpose of dating or beginning a relationship to get to know someone better, even if you have doubts whether a relationship could go far? Or are relationships only for two people who already feel very close to one another? On the one hand, a relationship is something serious that demands seriousness from the people involved; on the other hand, it seems a relationship has to, in the beginning,
