  1. The closest thing I've found to an objectivist mmorpg is Runescape. Players are allowed to use all skills, not just two; and all forms of attack/defense rather than specializing in a specific class giving players the opportunity for more self-reliance than WoW. However, the economy is no longer fully player set due to the problem of real world trading (trading actual money for in-game gold or items) and there's not much in the way of repercussions for evil acts. I guess no mmorpg is truly objectivist.
  2. Yes, and I can prove it mathematically. Time is money, and maintaining a relationship with a woman requires both time and money. If we concede for a moment (I don't, and I sincerely hope you don't either) that money is the root of all evil, then we get the following equations: Time=Money Money=√Evil Woman=Time*Money Woman=(√Evil)2 Woman=Evil There you are, mathematical proof. Now I have to go suck up to my girlfriend in case she sees this.
  3. Sorry to bump such an old topic, but I think I should point out that the reason so many people who aren't ordinarily fantasy fans like TG is because he is not a fantasy author. He claims to be a general fiction author with only a fantasy element to his writing. He himself is not a big fan of fantasy. His work outside the fantasy genre is at least as good as his work inside, as you can see if you read The Law of Nines.
  4. Hello. I'm fairly new to objectivism. I've read quite a lot of Ayn Rand's work, and I think that anyone who honestly gives it rational thought could find no better philosophy to live by. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and I'm looking forward to talking to you all.
