  • Biography/Intro
    Some traits: lover, fighter, philosopher, dancer, ham, gentleman, redneck, sports fanatic....pretty much in that order. I am a student of Objectivism who is in love with philosophy and in love with life. Warning!! Those who were initially introduced to me through internet discussion forums and published articles greatly underestimate the degree of my wacky, intense, slap-stick, adolescent sense of humor.

    My primary academic interests are psycho-epistemology, romantic love psychology, sexuality, and meta-communication. My primary non-academic interests are dancing (swing, hip hop, techno, salsa), Nintendo (I have all the old systems), working out (weights, calisthenics, cardio-vascular), political activism (letters to the editor, debate), mountain fun (hiking, rock climbing, rafting, swimming, picnics), sports (football!, MMA, soccer, college basketball) and spending time with my super-friends.
  1. The Reverse-Outline: The Reverse-Outline is a method of reading analysis and editing, especially useful in self-editing, in which one thoroughly studies a draft and formulates a summary outline. Pre-draft outlines are critical in professional writing, but even after they are used, the draft result can contain errors in order and focus. The Reverse-Outline is a powerful tool for identifying and correcting these errors. < I learned this method at the OAC, but have seen it taught elsewhere, so I'm assuming there's no copyright issue.> A note on application: I've found that the Reverse
  2. How about, instead of nymphomania, just -- someone who enjoys having sex very, very frequently? Is it frequent sex to which you object, or my (playful) use of that term? --Dan Edge
  3. Be there, or be...a stupidhead.
  4. There are many non-physical attributes that attract a woman to me, several of which have already been mentioned. In no particular order: Sense of Humor - Love of LaughterAbility to DanceConfidence in her SexualityFeminine in her Response to Aggressiveness (tied to the above)Good Natured / KindLoves Children and AnimalsAesthetic Sophistication (something I don't have)Thinly Veiled, Compulsive Nymphomania There are many more, but that's a good start. --Dan Edge
  5. Holding On To You by Terence Trent D'Arby Truly poetic lyrics... ------------------- I left the east side for a west coast beauty A girl who burned my thoughts like kisses She was down by street decree She swore she'd pull my best years out of me Fat painted lips on a live wire beauty A tangerine girl with tambourine eyes Her face was my favorite magazine Her body was my favorite book to read They say that poets must have as unrequited love As all lovers must have thought provoking fears But holding on to you means letting go of pain Means letting go of tears Means le
  6. Anylesca, This may not sound comforting, but your experience is not unique or unusual. When you get old enough to question your parents' authority (as you clearly are), there is often friction as your family gets used to you becoming an adult. This is almost always a difficult process, especially if you begin to embrace a worldview that your parents do not share. This doesn't mean that you will lose your relationship with them, only that the adjustment will take time. That you were able to work things out with them and come to a compromise in a difficult situation shows promise. I wo
  7. For the benefit of the MLK detractors on this thread (with whose criticism I sympathize), I would like to point out some additional historical facts: - Read up on the Jim Crow Laws that were still in effect in the south as late as the 1960's. Schools, buses, and many other public/private services were segregated by law. In WW2, blacks were not allowed to be in the same military units as whites. (Could a black Patton have saved thousands of American lives? We'll never know.) Blacks were routinely beaten, arrested, jailed, or killed for no reason whatsoever -- oftentimes with no pursuit
  8. The earlier (negative) quotes from MLK are not the ones for which he is remembered and celebrated. From the "I Have a Dream" speech: "In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." "So we have come to cash thi
  9. I'm a big fan of hip hop and electronica music because I'm a big fan of dancing. I hated Black Eyed Peas until I danced to to remixes of their music in the club. Many songs of that kind could be defined as sound design rather than music, but for purposes of dancing it doesn't matter. It serves its purpose. I agree with many of the criticisms levied here, but I advise all to be careful what music you brand as "evil." --Dan Edge
  10. Andy's note in my copy of Capitalism Unbound: "Dan, Here's some edu-macation for a po' southern redneck. Andy Bernstein" What a maroon.

  11. My thoughts, from my blog -- http://danedgeofreas...houghts-on.html A Summary of My Thoughts on the Peikoff/McCaskey Affair Over the past few weeks I've been digesting the details of the Peikoff/McCaskey affair and the subsequent fallout in the online Objectivist community. A few days ago I wrote a short, 4-page essay about this issue and the possible implications for the future of the Objectivist movement. While I wrote this in large part to clarify my own thoughts, I originally intended to publish it in full. But I have a tendency to get wrapped up in controversies of this kind
  12. Russ says: "Craig Biddle has no business adding more flames to this issue, nor does anyone else." Speak for yourself, brother. I've given money to the ARI, started a University club in their name and with their support, bought stuff from them, gone to their school, attended dozens of their functions, made friends of their employees, and other things besides. If I decide that I don't like the way they do business, then it impacts the decision whether or not to participate in all of the above. If you offer your unqualified support to ARI without ever questioning business practices you are
  13. Brian, I'm glad you posted that comment from Mr.Sefcik. I hadn't thought about that. --Dan Edge
  14. Swig, If you write a thorough and respectful analysis, I doubt you would get banned for speaking your mind. I encourage you to do so because what you've presented here is not at all convincing. Too much reaching, too little engaging the facts of the case. --Dan Edge
  15. By [email protected] (Dan Edge) from The Edge of Reason,cross-posted by MetaBlog On my last trip to New York City, I had the pleasure of meeting fellow blogger Kendall J for lunch as I was passing through Philadelphia. Kendall and I used to kick around ideas quite a bit over at Objectivism Online Forum, and I’ve been a fan of his blog for several years. I was very much looking forward to meeting him, and he did not disappoint. The greater part of our enjoyable lunch was consumed by a discussion of an upcoming post he was planning on relationships. He wrote that very interestin
