  2. While I see most critics rightfully jumping on the ridiculousness of "safe spaces," try not to bang your head against your keyboard when you read this: This is Not a Day Care. It’s a University! To mock the "trigger warning" culture, here's a taste: Doesn't get any clearer.
  3. The URL used to be: http://forum.objectivismonline.com/index.php?app=core&module=global&section=rss&type=forums&id=3 but I see that unread content RSS link which is now http://forum.objectivismonline.com/index.php?/discover/1.xml. Thanks.
  4. Having gotten both a business B.A. and MBA, I can very much appreciate your lack of inspiration from a business education. I think this kind of reaction/reflection is one of the reasons why business schools are seeing such a huge interest in entrepreneural programs. I have a friend who's an artist (primarily realistic oil paintings, but her abilities span the artistic gamut). She's a huge fan of Rand's work (The Fountainhead being her favorite) and she's even volunteered at an ARI event in the past. She doesn't really have any business experience but she's starting to create ideas for putt

But if I'm understanding his reasoning, he wants more philosophy so that scientists can become well-rounded generalists, reduce competitiveness, and better communicate to voters and politicians.

  10. http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2014/12/03/ayn-rands-early-novel-ideal-to-be-published-after-80-years/ FTA: "Ayn Rand fans, here’s something to whet your appetites: New American Library has released the cover image for “Ideal,” the first Ayn Rand novel to be published in more than 50 years... “Ideal” tells the story of a screen actress who is accused of murder and visits six of her most devoted fans to ask for help. In 1934, when she was in her late 20s, Rand first wrote “Ideal” as a work of fiction. But Rand was dissatisfied with it and set it aside. The same year, she rewrote it
