An Objectivist who goes by John Jr. believes a strict view of the teachings of Ayn Rand…remains necessary to fully understand Objectivist Ethics. Because of this…he took issue with my analysis of Objectivism. Here he is unleashed. I did some formatting for easier reading and SEO purposes. For the original format click here.
Concerning your blog posts on Objectivist Ethics: Note: I’ve also written articles on other blogs using the first name Robert.
Hi, Robert, I’ll get right to the point: First, while you seem to have a decent grasp of economics and politics (government) from an Objectivist perspective, you also appear to have some very odd notions about the more fundamental, foundational and logically prior aspects of Objectivism. I’ll begin with two quotes:

Ayn Rand opened up her thought provoking book The Virtue of Selfishness, a primer on Objectivist ethics, with a question people sometimes asked her. Why do you use the word selfishness to denote virtuous qualities of character, when the word antagonizes so many people to whom it does not mean the things you mean?
She said for the reason that makes you afraid of it, which is obviously a bold statement. Of course, we need to understand that she was referring to rational selfishness, not the irrationality people normally associate with selfishness.
Let’s discover if the Objectivist ethics are reality or illusion.

The science of Human Action soars as a deductive system that starts its reasoning with the actions of individuals. Objectivism stands tall as the philosophy of rational self-interest. It presents us with a solid, integrated system for living. Although there exists some differences in the epistemology (the theory and origins of knowledge) of Human Action (Praxeology) and Objectivism..these marvelous tools of knowledge are closely inter-related. Both realize…all thought begins with the lone individual. The Objectivist Warrior knows…the two disciplines supply him potent weapons for Mastering the Social Maze.
He considers Ludwig von Mises and Ayn Rand as the “Dad and Mom” of enlightened self-interest. Mises’ magnum opus “Human Action” reigns as the masterpiece of praxeological reasoning. Ayn Rand’s great philosophical masterpiece “Atlas Shrugged” soars as the Objectivist Bible. Although, I’m not sure if she would react favorably upon hearing…I connected the term “Bible” to her integrated system of logic and reason.

As you read every word of this report you will become stunned at what I reveal. It’s time for us to perform an analysis of the Economic Policy of Donald Trump.
Trump, Government and Business
Trump possesses a vision of building a magnificent new infrastructure…a one trillion dollar dream. Now that’s the way we expect an entrepreneur to think. Unfortunately, for him there are cause and effect relationships to consider. He’s not running a corporation or private business. The investors in his grandiose scheme happen to exist as taxpayers. These hapless men and women will pay the bill by way of a massive inflationary environment. That’s not exactly the kind of economic policy people will embrace.

What does the victory of Donald Trump mean for America and the cultural war?
Doug Casey ponders the influence of Trump the ways and means of America. “Will Trump winning mean a real change in direction for the US? Unlikely. Don’t mistake Trump for a libertarian. He has all kinds of stupid notions—torture as official policy, killing families of accused terrorists, and putting on import duties. He has no grasp of economics. He’s an authoritarian. His cabinet choices, so far, are all neocons and Deep State hangers-on. He’s likely to treat the US as if it were his 100% owned corporation.

Have you ever wondered why progressives want to disarm citizens…through gun control laws? As you read this article…you will realize there is absolutely no valid reason to leave people defenseless against predators.
Now you may be asking who these predators are. For one, there are violent criminals. Of course, there’s the most dangerous predator on earth…government. You probably know governments not only violate an individual’s life, liberty and property…they also indulge in mass murder through a device we know as war.

Women can enjoy the benefits of discovering the way of the Objectivist Warrior. I am honored to have the privilege of narrating an amazing woman’s transformation to self-actualization. Following is her story of another wonderful day in her life—a life of continuous fulfillment and achievement. Here’s the Lady Warrior.

According to Jeff Deist, “The central issue in the Ulbricht case, as always, is an evil and unbridled federal government. No human being should be locked away for engaging in (or facilitating) peaceful, voluntary commerce among willing participants. Dark sites like Silk Road, and the cyber payment systems they employ, exist because of state prohibitions on voluntary human conduct. They are natural market reactions to government interference. This cannot be overstated.”

We wholeheartedly endorse his conclusion. The Federal Government has run amok, stomping on individual rights without hesitation. Do you remember the 1958 movie “The Blob” starring the legendary actor Steve McQueen. Here’s a plot description. “An alien life form consumes everything in its path as it grows and grows.” That sounds like a perfect description of our Federal Government and its malevolent master—the Elite.

Let’s define Laissez Faire Capitalism. According to Wikipedia “Laissez–faire (/ˌlɛseɪˈfɛr-/, French: [lɛsefɛʁ] ) is an economic system in which transactions between private parties are free from government interference such as regulations, privileges, tariffs, and subsidies.”
The Importance of Philosophy states “Laissez Faire Capitalism. “Laissez Faire” is French for “leave alone” which means that the government leaves the people alone regarding all economic activities. It is the separation of economy and state.”
We can also refer to this economic system as unhampered capitalism.

As you read every word of this article…you will realize the Federal Reserve System sits in first place as Public Enemy Number One. You do realize the Fed stands for the continued screwing of the honest citizen. In addition, it appears its ill-fated monetary policies may cause a global economic collapse.
When Ron Paul states we need to End the Fed, he clearly understands it creates monetary disasters. Is it any wonder the Elite and its Soldiers made sure he never became President.
Note: All their power couldn’t get Hillary Clinton elected…as Donald Trump pulls a stunning upset.
