A brief description: My full name is Manfred Friedrich Schieder, I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, towards the end of 1937, as the son of an Austrian father and a German mother who were themselves children of emigrants who went to Argentina during the 20’s when so many Europeans emigrated to the States, South Africa, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, etc.
I left my country of birth in 1985 with my wife and our son to establish ourselves in
Prior to leaving
During the last 20 years I had little time to dedicate myself to Objectivism, excepting the writing of articles for Argentina, an activity which, however, subsided with time since establishing in a new country is quite a job, though a satisfying one at that.
In the meantime, however, and in spite of the political turmoils and ups and downs in
Separately a book publishing company of
Right now I am starting to collaborate with a German Objectivist Webpage with a translation of another article I wrote in
For a 66 year old man who is no longer active I think I am still functioning very well to defend and promote the glorious ideas of that greatest of all geniuses past present and future that called herself Ayn Rand.
For issues that develop into a discussion or debate between a rational and an irrational position I follow, as a man of goodwill and patience who doesn’t believe that it is necessary to immediately pull out the “heavy ammunition” arguments, Mr. Goldfinger’s statement in Ian Fleming’s homonymous novel:
“They have a saying in Chicago, Mr. Bond,
Once it’s happenstance,
Twice it’s coincidence,
The third time it’s enemy action.”
Body in Mind - [NOT SAFE FOR WORK] An online gallery dedicated to "creating super beautiful images of women by adding the glow of morality to the female nude." The site also includes some Objectivist-inspired writing on the admiration and appreciation of beautiful women. (Added by Andrew Bissell on 9/13/2004, 8:16pm)

|(Quotes) Those who tatoo themselves do so in the belief that an illustrated body compensates an empty mind, and those who wear a headscarf for religious motives or paint scriptural writings on walls, banners and majolicas do so likewise. |
(Quotes) What follows is from Ayn Rand's article "Collectivized Ethics". Just change "aged" by "poor", as Obama insists his health-care "program" is prepared for, and Rand's words become totally actualized: "'Medicare' is an example (of such a grand scale public goal). 'Isn't it desirable that the aged should have medical care in times of illness? its advocates clamor. Considered out of context, the answer would be: yes, it is desirable. Who would have a reason to say no? And it is at this point that the mental processes of a collectivized brain are cut off; the rest is fog. Only the desire remains in his sight - it's the good, isn't it? - it's not for myself, it's for others, it's for the public, for a helpless, ailing public... The fog hides such facts as the enslavement and therefore, the destruction of medical science, the regimentation and disintegration of all medical practice, and the sacrifice of the professional integrity, the freedom, the careers, the ambitions, the achievements, the happiness, the lives of the very men who are to provide that "desirable" goal - the doctors."
