    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

    Does anybody else here like Yanni? If you have heard of him and like him, let's talk! If not, then you are missing out on an incredible musician. Anyway, I'd really like to talk to a few people interested in yanni-and I just have to ask-who has listened to Santorini and what are your thoughts on it?
