Hello, I'm seventeen.

More importantly, is everyone alive in this neck-of-the-woods?

Inky grew up. The teenagers on OL usually leave when they leave for college, which is totally understandable.

Makes sense, the reason I'm here is because I have a urge to express and read more than my school provides. A true college cannot possibly be so inadequate.

G'day. The name's Alexander. 17, Gilbert, Arizona. Became an Objectivist about half a year ago from a combination of The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged, online lectures, The Virtue of Selfishness, a friend of mine, and a few economic sites and articles.

I'm 14 (one of the youngest people here!). I'm not really an Objectivist, but I'm interested in it.

Have you read any of Ayn's books?

Hey just joined OL. Names Jacob. Im 17. I live in South Africa. Iv never actually met another objectivist so i thought joining a forum was the next best thing.
"Converting" people to Objectivism is proving second too impossible here :-(
I feel bad for asking (because i dont want to sound like an born again evangelist :-P) : but how does one go about opening other people up to objectivist ideas?
When I speak about my views in class i get rolling of the eyes and general bad looks from my peers (especially in the history class)
