    Objectivism Is The Everyman's Philosophy

    In the universe, what you see is what you get,

    figuring it out for yourself is the way to happiness,

    and each person's independence is respected by all

  • Rand's Philosophy in Her Own Words

    • "Metaphysics: Objective Reality"Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed/Wishing won’t make it so." "The universe exists independent of consciousness"
    • "Epistemology: Reason" "You can’t eat your cake and have it, too." "Thinking is man’s only basic virtue"
    • "Ethics: Self-interest" "Man is an end in himself." "Man must act for his own rational self-interest" "The purpose of morality is to teach you[...] to enjoy yourself and live"
    • "Politics: Capitalism" "Give me liberty or give me death." "If life on earth is [a man's] purpose, he has a right to live as a rational being"

    An analysis of John Mearsheimer's position, which is: "it is not Putin but the West, especially the U.S., that’s principally responsible for this disaster. The Ukraine Crisis Is the West’s Fault.” The analysis continues:   Read here the full analysis.

    By Uriah,
    Admins - please give it a try. This topic is for the members to share the music they are listening to, it supposed to be updated constantly. And this is what's keeping me awake: Air - Love 2 The French duel is now out with a new album. It is rare to hear this kind of statement from a professional musician but Dunckel and Godin thought that their last album Pocket Symphony wasn't satisfying, partly because of their recent project with Charlotte Gainsbourg 5.55 which took a lot

    By Gus Van Horn blog,
    A Political Popcorn Roundup Usually, I take a break from politics on Friday, but these stories are amusing enough to me to qualify as such a break. *** 1. Reader Steve D alerted me yesterday to a rant by Ann Coulter about "That Old Trump Magic:"This is especially funny coming from someone who used to say things to the effect that Trump was America's "only hope" against the Democrats. 2. Senator Kirsten Sinema is no longer a Democrat, having announced yesterday that she will become an independ

    Are there any Other Gay Objectivists Out There?

    By Deepv,
    I think left is bonkers and conservatives are stupid. I don't think it is an easy deal to disentangle so much noise to put it in such an amazing coherent framework as Rand has. So it makes sense that I could find sensible gays (if they exist) who believe in objectivism here. So taking a shot here: Are there any gay objectivists here?

    "Let me stress this. The first question is not: What particular code of values should man accept? The first question is: Does man need values at all -- and why?" -- Ayn Rand *** In an article titled "In Defence of Garlic in a Jar" at the Walrus, Gabrielle Drolet relates how she nearly allowed an increasingly common sort of puritanical snobbery to ruin cooking for her:Let that last sentence sink in, but not without re-reading its context: Drolet's housemate started off complimenting the smell of

    What are the similarities and differences between 'Q' haters and Ayn Rand haters?

    Jon Letendre
    By Jon Letendre,
    Split from *** About the Russian aggression of Ukraine *** How do haters approach Ayn Rand's ideas? Do they find out what those ideas are, engage with them honestly and attempt to refute them? Or do they smear her and her admirers, skipping over the substance of her ideas and going straight to condemnation? "It's all there in The Fountainhead. Rape whoever you want to rape, destroy public buildings -- it's all good to the supermen of Objectivism. Atlas Shrugged makes it all clear

    If Rand were alive today - What would she be thinking and SAYING?

    StrictlyLogical
    By StrictlyLogical,
    Jeanne Calment purportedly lived for 122 years and 164 days and was mentally sharp until the end of her life in 1997. Having been born on Feb. 2, 1905, if Ayn Rand were to have lived as long as Jeanne, she would have been alive today and expected to live until sometime in 2027.   Rand was known for being outspoken, and even considered extreme in the relatively free and capitalist world of the 70s and 80s. Today, such things as: ecoterrorism, oligarchs, domestic terrorism, soc

    Or: When a Call to Arms Amounts to an Early Post-Mortem Governor Brian Kemp was primaried by a Trump-backed candidate, but won reelection in Georgia by over seven percent. Herschel Walker lost a runoff. (Image by the Office of U.S. Senator David Perdue, via Wikimedia Commons, public domain.)Even if I were the type to stay up for election results -- I am not -- I am pretty sure I could have slept through reporting on the Georgia runoff, which pitted a leftist clergyman against an empty suit.
