    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"

    Good online places to discuss Objectivism?

    By Eiuol,

Anything like Facebook groups, Discord servers, forums, and any other ideas. Does anyone have suggestions?

    Some time ago, Blogger, a Google subsidiary, changed its post editor. I haven't used the native editor for much in years, so the impact of this change on me was only mildly irritating. I found ways to avoid the problems I encountered and mostly forgot about it. Apparently, though, the change has been quite a headache for others, including people who, like me, sling their own HTML. Since I'm happy enough with the platform, but mostly avoid using its editor, I figured I'd pass along my solution

    Reblogged:A Modern Twist on an Old Narrative

    By Gus Van Horn blog,
    Then, courtesy of Ayn Rand: Now, in these lawless, rule-of-men pandemic times: The modern press has updated the narrative of blaming business for problems caused by improper government. The new version of "owning the legislature," is "Businesses [hold] sway over state reopening plans:"As massive business failures across the country -- caused at least in part by governors improperly forbidding ordinary citizens from participating in normal activities -- attest, let us paraphrase Ayn Rand: What c

    Capitalism is supported by the bible

    By Sebastien,
    Capitalism has proven throughout it's history to be an originator of abundance. How do we make sense of this in terms of the bible? Deuteronomy Chapter 28 begins with blessings for obedience, and ends with curses for disobedience. If capitalism produces abundance, that might be a sign that it is the correct system. If communism was a failure, and is not a source of abundance, that might be a sign that it is the incorrect system. If you are an Objectivist, you might not l
