  1. The Hickman stuff in Rand's Journals was just stupid stuff. Although given that the Journals have been bowdlerized, maybe the original was worse.
  2. If anyone has heard anything about this bio please let me know. I just checked Knapp's Virginia Tech page and she says she is working on a biography up to '57. There is no claim that it is "authorized."
  3. It's interesting that Brook's main beef with Trump is immigration - a topic that Rand never wrote a word about. And Brook will never give a clear answer as to why he supports open immigration for every country except Israel.
  4. Sunny and Doug Reich did a follow up. Quite good:
  5. Quote Mark: I believe Amy mentioned on the debate with Ed Mazlish and Crazy Stuart that her friend Sunny Loehmann told her how unpleasant Minneapolis was becoming because of Somali immigration. Amy has since unfriended Sunny.
  6. It's incredible to listen to Yaron Brook, who allegedly has a PhD. in something called "finance," talk out of both sides of his mouth. Do we have a good culture that can withstand potentially hundreds of millions of immigrants (which is what open immigration will result in) or don't we? Also, he's so in the thrall of the idea that everything that's wrong with the world is caused by intellectuals. Considering how bad the intellectuals are, I'm surprised that we still have a somewhat healthy culture.
  7. Valliant will be speaking at this summer's OCON 2019 on his newish book. Funny, I thought after the PARC disaster he would always by a B or C-lister.
  8. Milgram will have access to documents that neither Branden, Burns or Heller had. It's hard not to conclude that it won't be good, although it will have to be used with caution.
  9. I think she read some Kant, but there isn't any evidence she did. I don't think Milgram quotes Rand as saying she read Kant. But if you have only passing knowledge of someone it seems a little irresponsible to call him the most evil man in history.
  10. 9th - I doubt she read the Critique of Judgment. I think there are O'ists who think this shows Kant corrupted aesthetics, but I don't have any reason to think she read the book. My guess is that she read some of the Critique of Pure Reason and some of Critique of Practical Reason (or the shortened version of it).
  11. Here it is: Well, I'm having a problem cutting and pasting.
  12. Michael, I can't cut and paste into comments or messages.  Any idea why?

      I don't know. On this end there is no problem. People cut and paste all the time. Every day. Sometimes there is an issue with Javascript, so what are you trying to cut and paste? Send me a link and I might be able to detect the problem or tell you how to do it if there is some technical something or other you are not aware of.

      It's every site.  Maybe because it's because I'm trying to send links to "Doug Bandler" lol.

  13. The logical conclusion of Binswanger's view is that Israel could repel an invading Islamic army but is morally obligated to allow in millions of immigrants even if they would vote Israel out of existence. However Binswanger, for some reason, doesn't apply his open borders nonsense to Israel.
  14. Shoshana Milgram, who is (or was), the authorized biographer of Rand appeared 7/29 on the Strive Face Book group (Strive is an ARI-associated student group). The recording isn't up yet. She did discuss PARC starting at 1 hour. Unfortunately I got booted off when I (perhaps foolishly) mentioned that people should read my rebuttal. Hopefully the full recording will be up soon.
  15. 9th Doctor, I've read some writings by Mythers. It's hard to take seriously. There is more evidence for the existence of a historical Jesus than most people in the ancient world.
