|It's funny that Leanard Peikoff, the official commander and chief of Objectivism, can say that objectivism has nothing to say on the subject of homosexuality. How can a philosophy not have anything to say on any subject? It's philosophy. Ayn Rand taught that philosophy was the groundwork on wich men approach every subject, every subject they may encounter in life. |
This is what, I think, reveals Objectivism to be truly a political sect and not what it claims to be.
I've seen this before in other ways. Official objectivism hardy ever has anything new to add, not applying a philosophy to ever broader and broader topics. They stick to the same old stale topics, which true, none of which have been solved and so shouldn't be abandoned, but Objectivism seems to be something like a building that will only cover certain particular territory, and simply stops there, with no explaination.
Well, excuse me, but a philosophy is meant to cover the entirety of man's existence. It's really not a skyscraper built within a few square blocks of life - leaving all the rest of mankind to itself.
Ayn rand taught this herself, at least in words, if not always in her actions (like a true objectivist apparently). I mean didn't she say "The task of philosophy is to provide man with a comprehensive view of life."? Well, is that true or not?
