  1. People are acting like if you are against Bernie you are a proponent of child hunger. https://twitter.com/mamastekait/status/1233208622232018944?s=20
  2. Discuss: From Bernie Sanders Twitter: "I don't think it's radical to say schoolchildren should not have "lunch debt." If we can give tax breaks to billionaires we can guarantee free, universal school meals to all our kids." Under what conditions should children eat free (their parents don't have to pay) -- in school and in other places? Would this be different in a completely free market?
  3. Question is in the title. You are reading a textbook about accounting/singing technique, how is it best to learn and know what is in the book? The latter or the former? Your goal is to be able to talk without the information in front of you. I've heard of the spiral of knowledge but I'm not sure if that comes into play here.
  4. ...Work ethic what would you do with your life? And who is that character?
  5. In Ayn Brand's fiction who had the least amount of work to reach moral perfection? And why do you think that?
  6. On second thought, can a comparison even be made? I know that Capitalism would be run by his constitution/moral principles and not by mob rule/other people's opinions, fears, doubts, whims, delusions, emotions etc. Again, you can find your own way of comparing a person and a particular social system..
  7. How would Capitalism, Mixed Economy, Socialism, and/or Communism act if they were people? And why do you say that? You can even throw in a mixed economy moving towards Capitalism/Socialism/Communism For example since a mixed economy is such a hodgepodge of controls and freedoms I think he would act like a schizo... I think history has shown that as well. What do you think... Would Capitalism act like Mark Zuckerberg?
  8. I can't make full sense of this quote but I like it for some reason... I'm looking for an interpretation that would sound rational even if it wasn't intended to be that way Tupac says, "Though things change, the future's still inside of me" What could he mean by, "The future's still inside of me"? Here is the context of the quote: In this game, the lesson's in your eyes to seeThough things change, the future's still inside of meWe must remember that tomorrow comes after the darkSo you will always be in my heart, with unconditional loveIn this game, the lesson's in your eyes to seeThough things change, the future's still inside of meWe must remember that tomorrow comes after the dark Again, I'm looking for an interpretation that would sound rational even if it wasn't intended to be that way Radiohead also said something similar: "The future is inside usIt's not somewhere else"
  9. Don't say James Bond... I haven't seen a full movie of his but from what I've seen he is too stiff.
  10. For some reason I like Francisco D'Anconia. Are there any books or movies with a main character similar to Francisco D'anconia? It could even be a biography. I think of Francisco as a Super Intelligent, rational and charming guy.
  11. Regarding the Famous and Rich Chef who recently ended his own life: An Altruist would say something like: Money can't buy happiness, as you can see. His job was to enjoy himself and look what happened to him. Help other people and make them happy to prevent tragedies like these. You would want someone to care about you." A Christian would say something like: "It's important to have faith, above all else it's important to follow God and as a result, you will discover a purpose that fulfills you." What would an Objectivist message be to people?
  12. For example, Sometimes I repeat the phrase, "To Say I love you one must first know how to say the I" to remind myself to be assertive with other people.. How about you?
  13. I know right? If you see a woman you find interesting, just walk straight up to her and tell her so! I guess there is a way of doing this that will maximize your chances with the woman but you can't be compatible with everybody so it is up to her to see if she is interested in you.
  14. Curious now, as I don't have a firm grasp on the O'ist view of art. Is there a way for a pick up artist's approach to become a "work of art" in the O'ist's sense? I guess it could be similar to a performance art or no?
  15. I guess the term "art" is used to make pickup and everything else you mentioned seem "sophisticated"? By the way, here is the definition of art, according to google and not Ayn Rand: "the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power."
