|Irfan, on another subject entirely:|
I have just read the description you wrote of yourself at Solohq. Among other things, you wrote:
"I regard Brandenís The Passion of Ayn Rand (both the book and the film) to be insulting and subversive of rational discourse."
"An Objectivist movement worthy of the name has to get beyond such attitudes; I make no apologies about the need to be explicit about that fact."
Yes, an Objectivist movement worthy of the name does have to get beyond damning without justifying. Such an attitude is unworthy of someone calling himself a philosopher. Rational discourse requires discourse.
I am not suggesting that discourse take place on Solo, where it has no relevance. But if you wish to email me, my address is: BBranden1@aol.com. You know, of course, that the writer of the book almost never has any control over the film made from that book. And I wonder, have you really read all of my book? (Leonard Peikoff swears he never has read it, despite his trumpeting of his opinion of it.)
