  1. Ayn Rand haters are quite possibly even more irritating than Objectivists. Many of them are barely aware of what they are criticizing.

  2. And what illiterate 12 year old did they get to write the Justin Bieber article? That's being promoted here as a news source? Really?

  3. That tease on Speidi is not nice. I was hoping they'd spontaneously combusted and were quite LITERALLY no more.

  4. Wow, that Ayn Rand page is full of crap throwing band wagon junkies. I never found her philosophies that bad, even if a bit unrealistic.

  5. jordan, I'm very aware of what I'm criticizing. Objectivism is a religion. It is not philosophy. If you want a comprehensive criticism given by a real philosopher, click the link...

    http://home.sprynet.com/~owl1/rand.htm

    I could provide my own critique of, say, her ethical egoism...it is self refuting because once you endorse her egoism that you should only care about yourself (and others insofar as it benefits you), you are saying that egoism is the best ethical arrangement...and in doing that, you aren't just concerning yourself with "I", but with how others should conduct themselves...and that's a logical contradiction.

    There's a very good reason why most practicing philosophers (mainstream philosophy) don't bother to read ayn rand, and don't waste any time teaching her "thoughts". It's because it's garbage...LOL!

    Ahhh, dennis hopper...too bad. And yet eli wallach is still alive at 94! If you're mean enough, you'll live forever (something my grandfather taught me)!

  6. There are books on the subject:
    http://www.amazon.com/Ayn-Rand-Homosexuality-Human-Liberation/dp/0958457336

    Rand, by my definition anyway, was bigoted. Her philosophy, however, should NOT be denounced by freedomists. It should be embraced. A path to freeing ourselves from whatever tiny bits of bread crumbs Obama cares to throw us lies within.

  7. I feel sorry for David Laws. Yes he was doing something wrong (although not directly profiting), but clearly he had issues with his homosexuality. Frankly the torys deserve the scandal, im sure their policys in the 80s were a part of the guys fear of being outed.

  8. The notion that Rand = Oil Disaster is absurd. Those dolts on FB need to use their whole brain. Rand was an unwavering proponent of private property rights. What happened in the Gulf of Mexico was a product of government ownership and control of property. Does anyone really think BP would have been so careless if it owned those rights and could sell them? Would others with property rights in the surrounding waters and animnal life have allowed BP to take such risks without seeking court injunctions to ensure adequate insurance? Please. It was the federal government's Minerals Management Service that gave the go ahead for this project, not some private property owner. What private property rights do exist are what ensures that BP, Halliburton, and Transocean are liable for all the harm they cause. I wish I could say that about the Department of Defense and the Army Corps of Engineers.

  9. It wouldn't be the internet without a bunch of apologists for the homophobic demagogue also known as Rand.

    "Ayn Rand haters are quite possibly even more irritating than Objectivists. Many of them are barely aware of what they are criticizing. "

    No one can be completely cognizant of what Rand meant because she was a terrible writer with half-baked ideas. Southland Tales is a better font of philosophical truth.

  10. "What private property rights do exist are what ensures that BP, Halliburton, and Transocean are liable for all the harm they cause."

    What on earth are you smoking? Is anyone so delusional about the supposed restrictions on companies.

    Posted by: Zach | May 30, 2010 9:59:56 AM


  11. So Kelly...You're saying that if BP wasn't temporarily borrowing property from someone else (in order to profit from the borrowed property) instead of using their own property, they would have been more careful?

    Like that's better? That's all the more reason not to loan property out to businesses that won't take extra care with someone else's stuff. And even more reason to hold them accountable.
