  1. Yeah, that's what I thought. I know that Objectivism upholds free immigration, however the term 'open borders' is what had me slightly confused, because as you said the image you generally get is people running across the border rather than people coming across in an orderly and secure fashion as would actually be the case.
  2. Today on the conservative Mark Levin radio show, I heard him say that Ayn Rand "rejected open borders," and I think that is an inaccurate statement, however I can't find any specific statements from her on the subject either way. Can anyone tell me if she did in fact oppose open borders or not? Thanks.
  3. http://alittlesliceofrationality.blogspot.com/ I just started a blog. It's my first one and I'll probably be doing another post tomorrow. Its purpose is basically to talk about current events and things like that from my (an Objectivist's) point of view. Any comments and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Labor Laws

    I agree with that wholeheartedly. Perhaps I should have been more clear that the person I was talking to was referring more to things like dangerous working conditions and 18 hour days for children rather than just an average work day. But I do see what you're saying. On another note, didn't the absence of unions have something to do with the working conditions back then? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Labor Laws

    But exactly how were they the cause? What specific laws or government actions gave rise to these things?

    Labor Laws

    I was having a conversation today about Capitalism, and the person I was talking to brought up the working conditions such as children working long hours and other bad labor conditions at the beginning of the industrial revolution, and I really had no response as to how that problem would or would not be solved in a society of lassie-faire Capitalism, so I was hoping someone here would clarify this point for me. Was Capitalism the cause for those conditions or was it something else, and why did that happen? Thanks.
  7. I'm a big fan of Ayn Rand and her ideas. I recently read Atlas Shrugged for the first time and it's now my favorite book. I've also read her other novels as well and I'm currently reading "The Early Ayn Rand," after which I'll be reading her non-fiction as well. Other than that, my name is Jen and I'm from New Jersey, and I also enjoy learning about economics. So... I guess that's about it.
