ayn rand Rebirth of ReasonTM is an organization dedicated to the philosophy of Objectivism, a philosophy devoted to living on earth. The philosophy was developed by Ayn Rand, a novelist-philosopher in the 20th century.

RoR was founded in 2005 and is headquartered in Santa Clara, CA. You can find more information about RoR by going here.

Rebirth of Reason refers to Ayn Rand's description of the Renaissance.
The Renaissance was specifically the rebirth of reason, the liberation of man's mind, the triumph of rationality over mysticism - a faltering, incomplete, but impassioned triumph that led to the birth of science, of individualism, of freedom. - Ayn Rand
The site is created to be a tool for bringing about a new Renaissance. Our purpose is to advance the philosophy of Objectivism.

We also seek to be a microcosm of the world we want to create. The rebirth of reason starts here. If we want to create a better world, we must start with ourselves. If we want a healthier culture, we have to create it here. If we want to promote reason, accomplishment, and happiness, we need only look to ourselves.

First Nestlé is forced to reveal the construction of it's coffee-pods to competitors - next the lazy bums want to be also informed when the coffee-machine-design gets changed so they can implement any innovations in their pods without the cost of innovation.

Let's see how far the 'dog-eats-dog' rule is behind the 'antitrust dogwatch'.

Sadly that's just one example of many what goes on here in Europe: Atlas Shrugged all over again ... with one tiny fault: Ayn Rand got the timeline wrong - I won't see the lights go out in my lifetime ;)

It was through the role as a mentor that I learned some of the hazards of benevolently giving a protégé the benefit of the doubt. While I still consider benevolence a major virtue, I have shrunk what I consider "the bounds of reason" for generosity substantially. Anyone who consults my advice had better prepare for a kick in the seat of the pants from a very unapologetic mentor.
