I am Rafael Eilon, an old-time Objectivist whose agreement with Objectivism is no longer as complete as it once was. I had been more-or-less active on OWL (firstname.lastname@example.org) from 1994 till its unfortunate demise about a year ago. I am very pleased to see this new forum; congratulations Michael and Kat for a very impressive site!
I became acquainted with Objectivism in 1961, when I read Atlas Shrugged and then The Fountainhead. I subsequently read everything by Ayn Rand and her followers that I could lay my hands on.
I grew up in a Kibbutz in Israel (I am now a resident of Tel Aviv, Israel), and was educated with a strong Socialist (almost Communist) ethic. My acquaintance with Objectivism came as a shock and changed my perspective in a sort of personal revolution. It then took me more than a decade to wake up to the fact that Objectivism does not have all the right answers either...
Anyhow, enough about me. I have read some of the threads on this forum and generally I am very impressed, so I would like to greet all contributors and express my appreciation.
Last but not least, I want to call your attention to my essay "The Exclusivity of Physical Existence" which appears on the "Chewing on Ideas" section. As I say there, your comments are welcome.
Thank you all and all the best,
