  1. Price reduced to $50 Heavy Duty I & II books and Mentzer workout DVD were purchased earlier this year. These items are in storage and are in like-new condition.
  2. New Year’s resolutions are about a month away, and gyms nationwide will be filled with people intent on getting fit and trim. They will go to the gym enthusiastically day after day, week after week, month after month...only to abandon the whole effort, perhaps by summer. Why? Mike Mentzer provided the answer: overtraining. More important, Mentzer provided the solution: downregulating the volume and frequency of your workouts as you progress. Mike Mentzer read Atlas Shrugged in 1977. He then went on to win the Mr. Universe title (1978) and the heavyweight class in the Mr. Olympia contest (19
  3. Price Reduced: $145 for both DIM I & DIM II lecture sets (a $290 value) plus free shipping. Will also include a bonus item for FREE
  4. These lectures provide an outline of the entire book and go into a detailed analysis only on a portion of the book's content. Detailed sections in these lectures include a DIM analysis of history, education, literature and politics. It is helpful for the listener to be familiar with Peikoff's works on history, education, literature and politics. This is a breathtaking scope of information with a radically new way of looking at the past, present and future. I was doubtful about Peikoff's hypothesis before listening to these lectures. After completing this entire set, I fear he is correct. At
  5. This is the final Objectivism lecture by Dr. Leonard Peikoff. It is the most advanced application of Objectivism to date. This 24-CD set contains nearly 20 hours of material from 2007 and 2010 lectures by Peikoff. Not only does he reveal the essentialized content of his upcoming book The Dim Hypothesis, but he provides contextual material such as who helped shaped the book and why. His final farewell to Objectivism and special thank you section are worth the price of admission. This is a two-part set, Dim Hypothesis I and II, each set containing 12 CDs. Both sets are in excellent condition.
  6. I agree that organized religion -- in this case Christianity -- is a serious problem when admixed with government, and so I agree with Objectivists that Republicans should be punished by being ousted from the reigns of political power due to their explicit and genuine religiosity. But the more fundamental problem here is mysticism rather than one particular theology. In other words, if we drive Christians out of political power, but put in other mystics, what might arise could be equally bad...or worse.
  7. Pew Research recently conducted a poll on religious & mystical practices in America. Prominent Objectivists have been denouncing Republicans because of their inclination towards religious mysticism while praising Democrats because of their inclination toward secular reality. Pew's recent poll results reveal the opposite: Democrats believe in reincarnation more than Republicans (30% vs. 17%). Democrats believe in spiritual energy more than Republicans (30% vs. 17%). Democrats believe in astrology more than Republicans (31% vs. 14%). Democrats believe in Yoga spirituality more than Republ

Source: http://forum.ObjectivismOnline.com/index.p...8670&st=120 Objective Bodybuilding If most bodybuilders are stuck on the body side of the mind/body dichotomy, then most intellectuals are stuck on the mind side of the mind/body dichotomy. Neither situation is desirable. If you are an intellectual, you can develop your body in the most efficient manner possible by using Mike Mentzer's High-Intensity Training protocols. First, it has been said by some people that Mentzer was not a scientist and thus his work is invalid. Such people cite scientists who have never lifted weight
  10. Leftists have linked human sexual activity with global warming. It might not be long before the government appoints a Sex Czar to control this "problem". Source
  11. Right after September 11, 2001 Dr. Savage said this on his radio show: "We have a man I agree with thoroughly... We have a man I agree with totally which is why I invited him on the show. I don't ever invite anyone on the show unless I agree with him. It's pointless. His name is Dr. Leonard Peikoff. He's the founder of the Ayn Rand Institute..."

  12. Source: http://talk910.com/pages/blog.html?feed=33...article=5988487 Dr. Michael Savage launched his radio career on radio station WKNEW 910 AM in San Francisco, California 15 years ago. This was his flagship radio station where he held the top spot. Today he was removed from this radio station because of his views and opinions -- namely for calling Obama a Marxist and comparing Obama and the Democrats to Nazis. Michael Savage has been banned in Great Britian for criticizing the British Labor Party and how they have ruined Great Britian. Now he is being banned from American airwaves.
  13. Here is what to expect in the next four years with an Obama/Pelosi/Reid government: * Time Magazine's Man of the Year: Barack Obama * Islamic terrorists will hit America hard, perhaps with Iranian nuclear devices, wiping out between 100,000 to 10,000,000 Americans * Super inflation for consumer goods * Destruction of domestic auto industry by government forcing US auto makers to make cars most people do not want to buy * Increase in income, capital gains, dividends, corporate, estate taxes * Greatly expand number of citizens dependent on government for survival * Rise of p
