Objectivism
Of Heretics and Pagans
by Kernon Gibes
Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
It's a curious thing. You might think that if you were, say, running a discussion group or choosing places to speak at, that you'd be more interested in people at least somewhat sympathetic to your positions than those diametrically opposed. For example, if you were going to have people "sign" a loyalty oath, would you -- as an avowed Objectivist -- be more concerned about closet communists or lurking libertarians?

Regulating Humanism
by Elizabeth Kanabe

Do you want to add a bed on the third floor? You must ask for permission from the state in what can be a several-hundred page application process. Seem a little extreme?

So too did Miles Ertman color morality in his New York skyline panorama while the World Trade Center still stood tall and proud. I have coupled Adams September photo of Colorado aspens straight but fragile with the Erman poster entitled Morality Made Visible on a simple, white, student display board. (Read more...)

Transparency In Government
by Jeff Landauer

After recent business scandals in the US, critics have called for more transparency in business. With better transparency, we can hold people accountable for their misdeeds and better direct our investment dollars.

by Kernon Gibes

Ayn Rand admonished people to check their premises. And it has been said that she would have a visceral reaction to a statement because she could uncoil the chain of logic suspending the conclusion, finding the loose link in a lightening fast fashion. (Read more...)

Sense of Life
A Friend... To Values
by Arthur Silber
Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
Certain stories, almost mythic in nature, connect to our deepest values. For this reason, our response to them reveals our sense of life in a manner that most other events do not. I know that many people who identify themselves as Objectivists, to one degree or another, may not understand why I view the following story -- a true one -- as inspiring, and profoundly moving.

Altruist Guilt
by Francois Tremblay
Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
Altruism is considered a noble, humane alternative to egoism, which is perceived as a necessary evil at best. Yet Objectivists propose the exact contrary: that egoism is the only life-affirming ethical viewpoint, and that altruism is an unnecessary evil, a mindset held by people who are too ignorant to know better.
