Welcome to the June 21, 2012 edition of Objectivist Round Up!
This is the last time Erosophia will host as the Carnival as we know it is ending. I want to thank Jenn for her efforts with it over the years and to all of my fellow contributors and hosters who have made it so successful. For this week’s quote, I want to return to the essence of Objectivism. When asked one time to explain Objectivism “while standing on one foot”, Ayn Rand said that Objectivism is:
1. Metaphysics: Objective Reality
2. Epistemology: Reason
3. Ethics: Self-Interest
4. Politics: Capitalism
Without further ado, enjoy this week’s Carnival!
Rational Jenn presents On Spanking and Limit-Setting and Keeping Kids Out of Traffic Already posted at Rational Jenn, saying, “This is my response to some recent internet discussions about spanking children.”
Diana Hsieh presents NoodleCast #141: Q&A Radio Podcast: Objectivity, Friendships, Child Labor, and More posted at Philosophy in Action, saying, “In Sunday’s Philosophy in Action Radio, Greg and I discussed objectively assessing yourself, friendships with subordinates at work, keeping up with the news, child labor laws, and more.”
Paul Hsieh presents The Nanny State And Universal Health Care posted at We Stand FIRM, saying, “My latest Forbes OpEd was on “The Dangerous Synergy Between The Nanny State And Universal Health Care”.”
That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of objectivist round up using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
