  1. Thank you very much for your assistance. I see more clearly that the owner may see me as a preferable tenant compared to unknown persons. It is not a company queue so I won't step on any company toes. I now am willing to accept the apartment. This is an important decicion for me so I am grateful for your help. It warmed my heart to receive your help on this.
  2. I need you opinion on a situation. I know the owner of an apartment building. Usually the owner find new persons to rent apartments to by using a queue that is free for anybody to get into. I am not in that queue. But the owner has offered me an apartment anyway. If I accept the apartment I will get an apartment before the persons in the queue without standing in it myself. Is it immoral of me to accept the apartment? Immoral because I "cut the line". This question has tormented me and therefor I would appreciate your views on this.
  3. A better culture is one of the alternatives I think about. I try to be virtuos. Your'e probably right that that wish I sometimes have to forbid Islam is fascistic. I've read Atlas Shrugged and it really made a big impression on me (may sounds like i'm joking but i'm not).
  4. This never happended in Sweden I think, in France it happended though.
  5. Hello. In Sweden where I live, the number of Muslim in the population is rising. The larger the Muslim part of the population becomes, the higher the risk of a ) parliamentary enforced limitations of freedoms, like the topic of this thread, free speach. But in the long run, say 100 years, all women may be forced to wear headscarves, like in Iran. b ) non-parliamentary enforced limitations of that kind. Like the murder of the anti-islamist Theo van Gogh in Holland. I have a need. That is the need to live without the worry of these threats to those freedoms. I would rather live in a c
  6. Ok, thanks man. The focus you present here is valuable, I´m gonna use it. "Systembolaget", you knew about that. Systembolaget is a strange phenomena. A completely unrelated true story. My my father told me his father told him that "I work for free 10 months of the year and get paid for two months". What he meant is that what he took out from his business for his own salary he only got to keep 2/12 = 1/6 of the money. That is ... little. All right, thanks for your advices MichaelH.
  7. Because I have a handicap which makes things more complicated for me. Plus, unemployment is rather high. It mostly correct. But I don´t have to lie, but I have to NOT take a copletely voluntary initiative to contact them to tell them about my changed ambition.
  8. I followed an advice some months ago on OOF about a clip I posted on youtube, and removed it. I would very much appreciate your advice on an issue that is strongly nagging me. An interaction with a therapist in March made the spark for college disappear and I took a break from it. I asked a welfare program for help in getting an no brainer job. I started a 13 week training program today. It is expensive for the tax payers. On Friday, after some interactions with a lively, passionate and good person, I got back the spark for continuing on college. Before I resume college in Ma
  9. If Atlas Shrugged would be made in the form of a audio book, I would prefer if Harry Binswanger would be the narrator. Because he has a intelligent, calm, assertive and pleasant voice. (Ayn Rand Bookstore sells several products of his, for example "Ayn Rand' Philosophic Achievment"). AS as audiobook would be great to listen to.
  10. A note about the clip: The clip is/was free to watch on Fox News´ webpage. As a previous writer wrote I think this is not how it works. YouTube won't get sued. My first concern, which is manifested in the post I originally posted, about the well-beeing of the cool dudes in Iran, have I settled with help from the responses, I think the guys are not gonna be harrassed. Your objections to that I ripped Fox News of their property made more aware that was what I really did. Q and A: No, I don´t say that. Or at least, I think I don´t say that. Yes, I think so. Yes.
  11. Nothing gave me the right. It is owned by Fox. (I am now a easy shot if they want to sue me, I guess) My reasoning with myself is that Fox made the clip partly because they want to stop islamification of USA. So by posting it on youtube I´m helping them out, was my thinking. It would be a shame if this wonderful clip is made unavailable to the Internet audience in a week like usually happens with their clips. I still think that is a reasonable logic. What propells me is that I hate the prospect of me or dear ones living in a country - I live in Europe - that at some point has Sharia, which
  12. I was wondering if the government there are harrassing people that accepts being interviuved by foreign media. The more publicity of the guys get the more likely that the government find out they were on camera and tries to punish them, I was thinking. Dictatorships seems to be very anxious about how they are portrayed.
  13. Hey guys/gals I uploaded a video today to Youtube. It's a Fox News segment about young people in Iran that are rebelling by having western haircuts. Do I put these guys in the clip in danger by exposing them on youtube? Ox the clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGllKCFXav4

  15. I have done a simple web-page about that it is important to spread the ideas of Ayn Rand because Islam is expanding. The focis is long-term: some say (refernces on the web page) that Europe has a majority of Muslims in a couple of decades. If the majority is big engough to vote for replacing the traditional Western laws with Islamic law, "Sharia", I hope I have moved from Europe by then. (Sharia is very intolerant: For example, Muslims that leavs Islam should be killed.) Check out my webpage about this! Ayn Rand as Counter-Jihad Ps, It is important that at least Atlas Shrugged will be tr
  16. Correction: My target audience with my webpage is fellow European Objectivists (I am European). I think they and I should get out there and spread Objectivism. An Objectivist Europe is far more attractive than a Europe with Sharia and a 5 % of a huge Muslim population that supports religious violence and looks at non-Muslims as Infidels. Therefore I will perhaps not attach tags to the page so that it is relatively easy to find for Googlers. Instead I visit Objectivist websites and email Objectivists and refer to the web-page.
  17. I'm proud of the site I have made and I am grateful for the wonderful help I have received on this forum. I will start pushing the site on the net now. Nevertheless I would like more replies.
  18. There are many Muslims that are born to be Muslim but in fact are atheists. As I responded to another reply these fanatics is not worth trying to "convert". But all other has the potential to be "converted" I think. An alternative or complement to invasions is apply the strategy of spreading Atlas Shrugged to non-fanatic Muslims (an Arabic translation is possibly an requirement.)
  19. I take this quote to stand for your reply as a whole. You are right and your (and some of the other) reply triggered me to change my view in favor of your points, a change that I value. One of some changes in the dec 25 version of my webpage in line with this is that I restated the vision to the following: The vision: "Non-Muslims and Muslims all over the world should be converted to Objectivism (that is persuaded to hold the ideas of Ayn Rand.) Those who are unconsciously already holding views of Ayn Rand should be made aware of the word of Ayn Rand and be strengthened in their positive val
  20. Thanks! It might very well help me. I was aware of the book by Stayn and in the dec 25 version of my webpage I am refering to that book. I wasn´t aware of some of the other books. The one about Greece and the one by the same author about Islam might be filling some gaps in knowledge for me if I study them.
  21. Thanks to everybody who has made comments. It was great help and as you can see on the site, which was updated december 25, you have contributed rather much to the site as it is as today. I would like to have receive even more comments about the page because of this update. Regardless I feel confident to start marketing the site on the web now. That was another great point. I have now published a changed version of the webpage with sources and rephrasing. I did some shaping up on other parts as well. Perhaps I will give information about this important point. I want it to be a li
  22. Thanks for your answer. I see a lot of passion in Objectivism. Ayn Rand's books are loaded with energy. The spoken words of Ayn Rand (in the lectures that are free on "Registered user page" on www.aynrand.org) beams with passion, power and conviction. I think I remember in one of the books that one of the heroes said something like "... is my religion", where the blank is something like maybe the supremacy of the individual. Many Ayn Rand-fans are probably very passionalte about the values that Islam threatens on a long-term basis. And passion is transferable and infectuous - so objectivists
  23. I think it is important to spread the ideas of Ayn Rand as a way of hindering Islamic long-term expansion in the west (there are other reasons as well.) To accomplish this Objectivism should be spread both to muslims and to non-muslims all over the world. I made a short web-page about this theme. It can be reached by clicking on this link: Ayn Rand as Counter-Jihad I plan to market the page on Internet by attaching keywords that searchengines like Google are looking for. Before I do that I would like opinions from you people what you think of the idea and what you think of the web page. I
  24. Thank you gnargtharst for the information.
