TruthSeeker946 Posted February 18, 2021 Report Share Posted February 18, 2021 I am semi-convinced by the philosophy and I keep coming back to it because I support its fundamental premises regarding metaphysics and epistemology. Ultimately, all with have is our minds and our senses to know reality. I get that. However, what is an Objectivist to do when the vast majority of people refuse to think, refuse to exercise reason? So my problems are more with the applicability and practicality of Objectivism on the macro scale in the real world. Take mass immigration and/or open borders. It is obvious that open borders today would destroy western civilisation. Perhaps it is true Objectivism logically leads to the advocacy of open borders but it is also suicidal in the current circumstances. So please share your issues with the philosophy and what you think the solutions are? Clearly I am directing this more toward people who think the philosophy can be revised or at least expanded upon.
