Objectivist Blog Carnival

Welcome to the September 22, 2011 edition of objectivist round up!

We’re going to start this Round-Up with one of my favorite Ayn Rand quotes:

“If some man like Hugh Akston,” said Hank Rearden in Atlas Shrugged, “had told me, that by accepting the mystic’s theory of sex I was accepting the looter’s theory of economics, I would have laughed in his face. I would not laugh at him now.” ~ Ayn Rand

Sexual ethics is very important in life and if we accept false premises in sex, just like Hank Rearden did early in Atlas Shrugged, we will fall prey to false premises throughout our entire lives.


Carl Svanberg presents Stimulating the economy to death posted at The Cold Voice of Reason.

Tony White presents Post 3: The Amount of Loyalty and Anger posted at Peripatetic Thoughts, saying, “How much loyalty should an Objectivist show to the Objectivist movement? And, conversely, how much anger should an Objectivist have towards the state of today’s culture?”

Edward Cline presents Attack Watch: An Unintended “Talking Point” posted at The Rule of Reason, saying, “In June of 2009, the White House launched an “inform on your fellow Americans” email campaign. It was subsequently and immediately swamped beyond capacity with ridicule, anger, and mockery by Americans who were offended by the suggestion that they are just naturally untrustworthy and coveted their neighbors’ homes, bank accounts, lawnmowers, and wives”

Jared Rhoads presents Reexamining the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act posted at The Center for Objective Health Policy, saying, “On a conference call for writers and bloggers, I asked Gov. Gary Johnson if he would be willing to reexamine, and possibly repeal, EMTALA.”

C.W. presents The Right Way to Solve the Entitlement Problem posted at Krazy Economy, saying, “A somewhat educated suggestion of how to eliminate Social Security, Medicare, and other handout programs. It can’t be done in isolation. Consequences to all must be considered. And to fully understand the funding issue, the referenced, earlier blog post has to be read.”

Jim Woods presents On Foreign Policy, Our Founders vs. Ron Paul posted at Words by Woods, saying, “While it has been asserted that Ron Paul’s foreign policy is based upon the Founding Fathers, a review of the actual foreign policies of early American Presidents demonstrates that Ron Paul opposing their actual policies and can be best described as anti-Jeffersonian.”

Santiago and Kelly Valenzuela presents Southern Border Arrests at 40-Year Low posted at Mother of Exiles, saying, “Conservatives want safe borders before immigration reform, but there’s a few problems with that.”

Santiago and Kelly Valenzuela presents 1980 Republican Candidates Debate Immigration posted at Mother of Exiles, saying, “An interesting video of a 1980 Republican presidential candidates debate, and some good comments too!”

Diana Hsieh presents Video: The Morality of Torturing Terrorists and Criminals posted at NoodleFood, saying, “In Sunday’s webcast, I discussed the morality of torturing terrorists and criminals for information. Here’s the video!”

Rational Jenn presents Preparing posted at Rational Jenn, saying, “On making preparations for a slowing economy.”
