After a rough day at the office, I walked into my apartment, turned on the TV and plopped down on the couch. I felt completely demoralized from dealing with irrational people and power-hungry corporate bureaucrats. I sadly concluded that my dedication to logic and reason meant nothing to these reality evaders. Even worse, I would have to deal with them tomorrow. Incredibly, I had no idea I would soon become a Reluctant Objectivist.

Even hapless men and women stuck in the Hive Mind Mentality…do not desire its extremely neurotic members victimizing them.
Let’s discover how an Objectivist Warrior overcomes the dangers of a personal conflict… that arises in a love relationship. Successfully handling a personal conflict takes you that much closer to living life as a self-actualized individual.
You don’t know it yet but, at the conclusion of this article, you will understand that…
Even the Objectivist Warrior can be blindsided by the extreme negativity of an individual who remains stuck in the Hive Mind Mentality. Let’s explore the interplay of a severe argument between a man and a woman…who went separate ways in their state of thinking and being.
