  1. I mentioned the FMA once and then gay issues again because I brought up Santorum - twice is too much?
  2. My article on the election was published in the student newspaper of the University of Chicago called "a view on the election from the right." The original title was "Farewell to tyranny" http://maroon.uchicago.edu/online_edition/...from-the-right/ Let me know what you think.
  3. http://www.lfb.com/index.php?action=help&a...ive.html#071306 The summer seminar of The Objectivist Center is now over, and reports are coming in about what the moviemakers working on a film version of Atlas Shrugged have to say about their progress. Filming has not yet begun, but a script has been drafted, and the plan is to shoot the epic as a trilogy. (No word yet on whether there will be a ten-hour Part II-b for Galt's Speech.) LFB author Robert Bidinotto, the editor of TOC's New Individualist magazine and the man who scripted The World of Atlas Shrugged, has the scoop at the
  4. As well as Sheikh Abdul Rahman.
  5. 571: On OO.net I changed my e-mail address on my account and it's supposed to send a validation email to confirm it but for some reason it didn't work. So now I can't post or PM so I can't let the admins know what happened. Could you notify them about my problem? His username is Myself.
  6. Blanchett, Theron, or Knightley for Dagny. Jolie is attractive with blonde hair, just not in that pic: http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00003CWQR.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg
  7. TOC *and* a Libertarian? *gets the pitchfork and torches*
  8. From today's Variety: Lionsgate shrugging Studio to shoulder long-gestating 'Shrugged' Ayn Rand's most ambitious novel may finally be brought to the bigscreen after years of false starts. Lionsgate has picked up worldwide distribution rights to "Atlas Shrugged" from Howard and Karen Baldwin ("Ray"), who will produce with John Aglialoro. Angelina Jolie, a longtime devotee of Rand's, and Brad Pitt, also a fan, are rumored to be circling the leading roles of Dagny Taggart and John Galt. "Atlas Shrugged," which runs more than 1,100 pages, has faced a lengthy and c
  9. American Beauty, Matrix, and Fight Club are amazing movies O_o
  10. www.otnemem.com is part of the story - canon as per creators.
  11. I started reading Atlas because I was a flaming Communist in high school and someone told me to read it to set me straight. It did.
  12. So I have this friend. He's a freshman in college, and a psychology major. I went to high school with the guy, and he's a good friend. He's on some sort of crusade against Objectivism, and I still haven't figured out why. It almost seems as a giant personal attack. He has said he "doesn't want me to believe in a mistake." He brought up Dr. Ellis's "Is Objectivism a Religion?" book - an attack on Objectivism from 1962 that's out of print. He actually went out and bought the book. I have no problems with critics of Objectivism - but he's only read "some stuff online" and about a third of Atl

  14. Note I said philosophers, not complete philosophies of. Mine are Nietzsche and Aristotle. I've grown to like Nietzsche quite a bit during my "Great Philosophers: Nietzsche" class this semester.
  15. Absolutely correct. It is not moral to hire a prostitute or to do cocaine, but I fully believe those two things should be legal. Sex with animals is probably not moral - however, should it be legal in a free society?
