    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"

    first impression

    By meganfiala,
    WWWWWWWWWWWWell, My name is Megan, I live in Ottawa, Ontario, and I have been an objectivist for 2 years now. I'd just like to say that so far, I'm impressed with the rationality and logic that fills this site. There's a lot of b.s. on the net. Glad I found something worthwhile. 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,

    Atlas Shrugged in Outer Space

    Read about this latest aberration of science here I wonder if this would happen if the space program were privatized in its entirety.

    The War In Iraq (and WMDs)

    By redfarmer,
    In the wake of the war on Iraq, it appears that more and more of the reasons that President Bush gave for going to Iraq are turning out to be either false or complete fabrications from the beginning. Among those reasons: 1. Weapons of Mass Destruction. There apparently are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, nor does it appear there have been any there since the first gulf war. 2. Iraq's "connection" with Al-qaeda. Hussein and bin Laden were never affiliated and, in fact, are morta

    What is the Objectivist view on transhumanism?

    By June,
    How do objectivists perceive transhumanism? They are mostly compatible, especially in the degree realism is assumed, except in their ethics and the magnitude of respectability the human mind deserves. Where objectivists generally believe that humankind’s basic virtue is irreconcilable with altruism, transhumanists tend to believe this is a false dichotomy. According to transhumanists, anything possessing sentient properties deserves to be optimized with adaptive qualities primed for nature’
