  2. Glad to hear people of influence or accomplishment are actually open to the ideas discussed here. I understand and respect their privacy. Rand discussed a great many things... she identified single State corruption, a swamp on a small scale... but without an inking of the technology of today could she even have in her wildest dreams thought of such a global elitist oligarchy attempting to enslave the entire world as it is today? Had she ever thought these petty technocrat busy bodies in government, big tech and the media would ever be so bold as to proclaim to all, their ideal tw

  3. Objectivist leaders: Something has gone wrong when some Objectivist leaders accept the idea of supposed free trade that includes trade with tyrants, for example, trade with Kantians, Pragmatists, Muslim Iran, or Communist China. There is no free trade with tyrants which operate according to the principle of force and not by the principle of individual rights. Free trade, individual rights, and private property are not possible in dealings with tyrannical individuals or governments. Perhaps not even possible with Objectivist leaders who endorse trade with tyrants or advocates of

  6. ThatGuy, Since World War II the U.S. has been in a new phase of degradation to which Rand was pretty much oblivious. Socialism vs. Capitalism, Left vs. Right, Liberal vs. Conservative is now just entertainment, like television wrestling, hiding venal, thieving, murdering Mafia-like corruption. It makes “taxing the rich” or “robbing Peter to pay Paul” look good. I wrote “pretty much” because once in a while Rand would acknowledge that something more sinister than differences in political philosophy was going on. The only example I can think of at the moment is when, in an essay, s

  7. Big Tech Censorship and Section 230 of the “Communications Decency Act” by Ed Powell. Amy Peikoff is beginning to see the light after what happened to Parler, of which she is Chief Policy Officer. She calls it “censorship by proxy.” The above essay is based on a reply to Amy. I’m placing this post in the ARI Corner forum because ARI continues to defend Tech Totalitarianism.

  9. Here's a counter-argument to the "Operation Trust" psy-op theory, published 1/21/21. "No, Q and “Trust The Plan” is Nothing Like OPERATION TRUST, It’s not a Pacification PSYOP and Here’s Why." https://stillnessinthestorm.com/2021/01/no-q-and-trust-the-plan-is-nothing-like-operation-trust-its-not-a-pacification-psyop-and-heres-why/ Make of this what you will. I'm sure that good ol' fashion Objectivist epistemology can chew some things up nicely, or Occam's razor can slice-and-dice. (There's no "smoking gun" here, mostly counter-inferences to the opposition's inferences). Whatever

  11. Mike Adams from yesterday. The video is in the article. Situation Update, Jan 21, 2021 – The astonishing case for optimism and faith Mike covered the quo warrento option. He also mentioned that if the ballots are destroyed before the 22 months are up, that is grounds for invalidating the election and removing the so-called winner from office. He also said that a military option is so much better optics-wise with Trump out of the way. When they intervene based on foreign takeover of the election or something similar, they won't be seen as being Trump's lackeys. And when they

Q again There is a tendency on all quarters right now to blame and mock Q or those who have tried to figure out what makes the bad guys tick, then why and how such massive election fraud was allowed to win so they can do something about it. I have already written about Q, the diversity of it, the uses many different sides have for it, and so on, but I have no doubt some who will read this will not remember, but instead think I drank the Kool-Aid.

I have literally no idea what the letter who shall not be named is/was/could be/have been, but the spark I refuse to let die is the recognition that so much in the world right now is 'just not right' and that sparks draws up some anger when I feel as if no one else can see It or fails to call it out. That was always the thing that initially drew me to nameless letter the allegory of righteousness , bold righteousness in the face of all this shit.

John Earle Sullivan, a Black Lives Matter Activist and anti-Trumper, was charged by complaint with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and one count of interfering with law enforcement engaged in the lawful performance of their o

  18. TG, The following article at CNN shows it is accurate, but slanted. Investigators pursuing signs US Capitol riot was planned Since this is a CNN article, I had to hold my nose and try not to vomit to read it just to see if Carmine Sabia's claim was accurate. It is. However, one part is fact with a thing left out, and the other part is a logical inference. CNN has become so epistemologically corrupted amidst its constant tangle of lies, I bet no one there even thought about this. First the fact. The article actually is all about the attack being planned. And the article is p

  19. Ellen, That could only happen after he leaves office. I doubt the Senate under McConnell will even schedule a trial. And the Senate can't convict President Trump if he is not in office. The purpose of the trial is to decide if he should stay in office or to remove him. According to Dershowitz, there is no such thing as an impeachment trial solely to strip a former president of his political rights. There is a problem with the impeachment, though. Once again, according to Dershowitz, President Trump's speech that the Dems are trying to hold up as a smoking gun is protected by the Cons

  21. Things are looking bleak. Based on this tweet and some other indications, rather than focus on keeping Trump in, we should start focusing on destroying the impostors. And breaking up big tech. There are certain indications that this is doable and the pushback will be massive (it's already starting), so I will keep contributing about this on this very thread until the Deep State unravels--or better, gets unraveled. I want to keep hope alive for OL readers to stay inspired that President Trump will be sworn in next week, but reality is what it is, not what I want it to be.

  22. TG, apt observation about mainstream Objectivist intellectuals. I.e. It is "science", right? It's big business - right? Praising them and the people as inherently admirable, irrespective of the morality of some scientists and big businessmen, their purpose, methods and their aims. Nor their involvement with Big Government? Wealth is good - therefore he who has amassed the most (e.g. Bill Gates) must be better than good. And so on, especially with Big Tech. As if on a quest - of which I'm certain - to find O'ist real life heroes (and there DO exist those, not always in obvious places, ofte

  28. Ellen, I don't think that. I was just mentioning the roots of Prather's perspective. In other words, there are two perspectives I discussed. To imagine that he would propose to steal freedom, thus hold that that freedom is property that can be stolen or something like that, or is unaware that he is proposing that, is a misidentification. (I use the "identify correctly to evaluate correctly process for things like this.) When one looks at what he said from his perspective, from the way he thinks, what he is saying becomes clear. I resonate with his message, too. I

  29. I am a fan of Ann Coulter as a warrior, but I have discerned a difference between her and me ever since she started going off on President Trump. I think she would be perfectly happy if Trump cheated to win. I would not be happy. In fact, I would stop supporting President Trump in a heartbeat if that happened. As I exist with this moral sentiment and conscience, I am 100% certain millions and millions of people who support President Trump exist, also. Now for a catty dig. Ann would probably do better to not date Bill Maher (or other hardcore liberals) anymore, or at le

  30. They are celebrating their efforts since March ,the devastation they have wrought on the biggest symbol of capitalism in the world . They orchestrated the destruction and revel in the idea it will last. They are even sticking their thumbs in the eyes of the prolls they rule , a lintelless column is basically a plinth without a statue , the statues replicated are the remnants of fallen cultures shown in their ruination and not in the original splendor. Nero dancing a jig. Fuck that guy.

  48. Marc, On the corrupt Marc Elias, I saw the best takedown of him I have seen to date. It was by Jack Posobiec. I have to provide it in a screenshot since Elias blocked Jack minutes after this tweet. You can see both tweets separately (Jack here and Marc Elias here), but you can't see them together anymore like you can in the screenshot below. And Marc Elias did. He literally paid for a peepee dossier... that was used in courts... even to get FISA warrants. Man, for a so-called powerhouse lawyer to block someone over this comment, it must have stung mightily.

Soon you will understand (if you don't already) why some men and women become great and why others are churn and will never rise from the swirling. There is nothing wrong with falling into mob psychology. It happens to all of us. (Welcome to the human race.) But the great ones catch themselves and snap out of it. The churn lives where the mob lives. I don't have a bigger meaning for this other than it exists. I have some speculations. Nothing firm yet. But I do know I am not fit to live where the churn

I dismiss these claims without looking into them, and I think it’s perfectly valid to do that.” Just so, he goes on to say, you acknowledge that you haven't looked into them, which makes your dismissing them OK.
