  • Biography/Intro
    I am both an Objectivist and a passionate otaku (someone interested in Japanese pop culture).
  • Experience with Objectivism
    I have memorized Anthem, read Atlas Shrugged, read part of the Fountainhead, and have read bits and pieces of other works by Ayn Rand. I grew up in an Objectivist family, so any misconceptions about reality I had developed as a child disappeared as I was shown how and why I should think rationally.

    Anime

    I reccomend Gatchaman: Crowds. It is one of the few anime where philosophic values are clearly identified and the consequences of faulty philosophy are shown. The first season subtly advocates the morality of self interest. However, it is the second season that really stands out. In it, the enemy possesses no values of his own, does not think for himself, and only speaks the minds of others. It demonstrates some of the real dangers of what happens in a society where there is little to no independent thought. In both seasons is the issue of gun rights, although not explicitly stated. It is not without flaws, but it is the only anime I have seen that clearly states and identifies with philosophy. If you want something truly flawless, read the Library Wars manga. It is an outstanding work which openly challenges big government, gun control, restriction of free speech, mixed government, and advocates individual rights. It has a firm understanding of both reality and the thought process of those who deny it. I never have and maybe never will find a manga or anime of this philosophical quality again. It is a must read.
