    I live in Brisbane, Australia. I am currently reading Atlas Shrugged and I have watched a number of 'MrCropper's' videos on youtube to develop an understanding of objectivism.

  1. I see. Thank you for your quick response. I think I can begin writing my essay now.
  2. Okay, the following is the entire quote + the task I was given, word for word. "Regarding historical accuracy there ...[are] several aspects to be considered: the script itself, the director, the actor's interpretations, the physical elements- sets, ... props, landscapes.. -and the instances of artistic licence. Accuracy and truth are two different things. I would come to consider Ghosts of Mississippi 100% faithful to the spirit of truth and 80% to the spirit of accuracy." Morris, W., 1998 Task: Choose a film or novel which purports to tell a true story about the race issues from slavery
  3. Hi there fellow O'ists. For my Modern History class I've been asked to write an essay on truth and accuracy in Huckleberry Finn. The essay is to be in response to a quote in which the author states that something can be 100% true in spirit, but only 80% accurate. I take it that accuracy is the degree of the quality of truthhood and I have knowledge of what a truth is, a statement about a fact of reality, so I'm wondering what the writer of the quote means by true 'in spirit'.

It's sort of like Australia's a wannabe Canada. The teachers at my school are all left winged and hypocrites. I had to correct my history teacher when she said 'There are no truths'. As for the whole leather jackets, not many people I know wear them, I'd get slammed by environmentalists if I did anyway. Australia's pretty much a copy of America, except not as famous.
  7. Greetings from Australia, I've been lurking around these forums for the past few weeks in order to better develop my understanding of objectivism. As I lurked, I was extemely impressed by the level of intelligence and rationality I saw, ergo I've decided to register an account in order to hopefully learn from this community. Now, a bit about myself. I'm 15 years old, impressionable and eager to learn. I take it on trust that you people won't intentionally mislead me or do anything of that sort. I live in Brisbane, Australia and I'm in my 11th year of school. My plans for after school are t
