    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"

I'm looking forward to exchanging thoughts with you. -Elle

    By AutoJC,
    Damnit, Peter Schwartz! Please stop recycling your essays! First, on October 6, 2003 Then, on April 8, 2004 He just changed the first sentence in the first paragraph, then all else stayed the same. Other authors there do this, too. Certainly, with the intelligent minds over there, ARI can do better than that.
