Thank you for the warm welcome.
Life is pretty good in NZ though it does have a slower pace compared to most countries I suspect.
I think I have a similar temperament to Ayn Rand so when I discovered her it is like a concretization of my conclusions. It has been quite a journey for me actually. I was born into a Lutheran family but after delving more into it as an adult, didn't found any good positions on it. Being not fond of dogmas and doctrines got me interested in Quakerism but they did not have good answers either. Then I moved to other religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism and got the same results. Even Stoicism was not cutting it. When I finally got to Ayn Rand, everything was just clear cut and crystal clear.
