  1. Hi. No philosophy brokers reality. If you let it you are the brokered. Thus Objectivism the philosophy of Ayn Rand is not Objectivism objectively speaking. Rand/Peikoff would disagree with this. The four basic principles of Objectivism are linked together by the autonomous critically thinking mind and are centered on ethics/morality. Reality reason, self interest, individual rights/capitalism. From these four you have detailing but this last is not dogma nor Objectivism per se. That's my take. --Brant
  2. Neither induction nor deduction is a logical fallacy. Nor any variable ratio between them. You can't get to a fallacy from there. In the 1930s tourists lost on a rural road in Georgia came upon a farmer standing next to his mailbox. "Can you tell us how to get to Chicago?" The farmer looked them up and down and took the straw out of his mouth. "You can't get there from here," he drawled. --Brant
  3. We don't know you. And what are you about respecting Objectivism? And this twofer posting doesn't work. --Brant
  4. Any Rand? I thought her name was Ayn Brant! That's why I took up Objectivism --Nutz Brant
  5. I think to post here there has to be some expressed interest in Objectivism however thin, however wrong, however dogmatic. OL isn't Objectivist Living Naked. --Brant
  6. Most people look better with their clothes on. A lot better. --Brant if humans went starkers in a few generations they'd have a lot of body hair and we'd no longer be "The Naked Ape" what does Objectivism say about this?
  7. I'm actually three people. One is Brant. Two is Peter. Three is Gaede. We all get together and decide what to post, for years and years now. Brant lives in England. Peter in Russia. Gaede in Germany. Mix them together and you get a United Statesian. AKA an American. --Brant pretending to live in Tucson, Arizona (actually I'm a brain in a jar in some crazy guy's lab)
  8. That's what we need: a living martyr. It's not what Obama deserves; it's what we deserve and we don't deserve that. Just wipe out his criminal underlings and he's left standing there naked. --Brant in the old days you simply killed everybody
  9. I get the impression he's conflated this virus with AIDS qua deadliness. If you don't wear a mask you're a murdering moron. I don't know yet why he thinks Trump is by far the worst President ever. I mean Lincoln had a war to preserve the Union instigated by tariffs and killed off 5 percent of the population, 700,000 men half by war wounds and half by disease. He's my worst. I think he likes Lincoln a lot. And Wilson somewhat. He hates conservatives with a passion and throws early 60s Rand at them. Jim Peron is a very complicated extremely intelligent man, but dead in the water give and take intellectual. I think he's culturally left. I think that because I recognize some of it in myself. --Brant
  10. The vaccination for flu is the flu itself. People with a lot of money are tempted to use it and waste it on bullshit. --Brant
  11. I'm a sell out. I'm for sale. --Brant
