    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

    What are you listening at the moment?

    By Uriah,
    Admins - please give it a try. This topic is for the members to share the music they are listening to, it supposed to be updated constantly. And this is what's keeping me awake: Air - Love 2 The French duel is now out with a new album. It is rare to hear this kind of statement from a professional musician but Dunckel and Godin thought that their last album Pocket Symphony wasn't satisfying, partly because of their recent project with Charlotte Gainsbourg 5.55 which took a lot

    What is the explanation for why some people live according to reason, and others don't?

    The Laws of Biology
    By The Laws of Biology,
    Is there some rational explanation for why some people live according to reason, and others don't? Is it because those who live according to reason (and thus live according to objective reality and self-interest) are more intelligent, or have had a better education, or had early childhood attachment with caring adults, or something like that? If not something like that, what then is the rational explanation for the fact that some people live mainly according to reason while others live mainly ac

    The need for developing Philosophic Forensic Science

    By dream_weaver,
    On the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Policy page is the Forensic Science section. In the 'About' section, it reads: Forensic science is a critical element of the criminal justice system.  Forensic scientists examine and analyze evidence from crime scenes and elsewhere to develop objective findings that can assist in the investigation and prosecution of perpetrators of crime or absolve an innocent person from suspicion. In Ayn Rand's essay, Philosophical Detection, a pass

    Four 28 Interesting Recipes Occasionally, I kill two birds with one stone by blogging parts of my weekly review on Friday. This week, it was time to look at interesting recipes I heard about that I might want to try. Here are four links to recipes that turned up. Most online recipes already take too long to get to the point, so here we go... *** 1. I'm much more likely to fry my chicken or incorporate it into jambalaya or a gumbo than to roast it, but the words easy and moist in an article ab

    Some of the Breads of Life

    By dream_weaver,
    Many things going on outside the world of the Objectivism Online Forum. Discovered, over the course of a year, that I was able to live within an anticipated budget, and that I would likely not have to return to the 'working 9-5' world. Such was not to be. I received a call asking me if I'd take on a part-time position. After 40+ years with my nose to the grindstone, a year vacation softened my resolve. The work offers the flexibility to take on more varied activities, with the added bo

    Reblogged:Energy Poverty Arrives in California

    Gus Van Horn blog
    By Gus Van Horn blog,
    According to the EU, energy poverty:This was happening in Europe thanks to "green" (read "anti-") energy policies long before Putin made it much worse. And now, by the looks of it, it is arriving in California:This story reminded me of an interview (embedded below) of industry executive Toby Rice by energy advocate Alex Epstein that I listened to about a year ago. What really stood out to me was how easily we could meet our natural gas needs and export -- if only governments would get out of th

    Anyone in San Diego want to hang out? I'm game for intellectual discussion or just casual socializing. Let's get something going!

    First Ayn Rand book

    By felicity,
    The first Ayn Rand book I read was "The Virture of Selfishness". THis question has been asked in other places before. I thought I'd ask it here, because the "polling" feature is well-suited for it.

    Are there any dating sites for objectivists?

    By Deepv,
    I think you can only date people who have the same values for you and for me objectivism defines values in a very consistent and a fundamental way that I ascribe to. So I was wondering if there are any dating sites for objectivists as it makes sense to me that there would be other people like me who would be looking for similar
