    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"

    Objectivism already?

    By iouswuoibev,
    Are there any countries, in our present time, that have an integrated laissez-faire government and full-strength capitalist economy? Are there any countries that come close to having this?

    Fountainhead: The movie

    By TheCerebro,
    I'm halfway through "The Fountainhead" and wondering if the movie was any good (no, I won't watch it untill I've finished the book)? I know Ayn Rand did the screenplay, but acting and directing can make a big difference? Also, was the movie based on "We the Living" good? Thanks for letting me know!

    Who wants $25?

    By CIRCE,
    but I figure it's a win-win situation if anybody is interested! Here's the deal: I have a rockin' savings account. Bank at which said account is located pays out bonuses to both the person who refers new clients and the existing client who did the referring. Now if you post a reply with your email address, I'll refer you and we'll both get money. Is this against the forum rules? I'm not exactly selling anything.... *mentally crosses fingers*

    OPEC Plays Fairly

    By y_feldblum,
    (Reuters) A cartel is a collusion of businesses which exists for the sole purpose of raising prices. And it has the temerity to blame another entity for raising prices?

    Theory of Gravity

    By always_learning,
    Does anyone know a lot about the dark matter theory or the new gravity theory? Is there a good website that discusses this?

    Yello, y'all

    By DavidOdden,
    This isn't a substantive post: I just thought I'd give a try at saying hi (hey Don, Betsy, Stephen). I'm thinking of a permanent change of address where the signal to noise ratio is higher. Dave Odden

    Handwriting Analysis

    By Prometheus,
    Just wanted to know your opinions on Handwriting Analysis. Is such an analysis scientific? Are it's predictions in any way correct? I, for one, have always been plagued by a really bad handwriting. I have improved it quite a bit from my early school days, but even now if I try to write fast (say for exams), my writing really goes bad and often quite illegible. Has anyone here been able to overcome such a problem? I would love to find a solution to it. Dinesh.


    By RationalBiker,
    Does anyone here watch this show? Like it? It portrays a rather brutal depiction of the west during that time. There are some facts blended into the fictional story line. One thing that I have noticed is how many of the characters seem to have objectivist-like beliefs. For those not familiar with the story, the main "hero" is a guy named Bullock who leaves a sheriff job in a small town to start a business in a camp called Deadwood. There we meet the story's principal "villain", a g
