Daylight savings time begins this weekend…which means spring is right around the corner. What an excellent opportunity to see Objectivism blossom into a force to be reckoned with. And it should …because it offers the gift of personal liberty and economic freedom…and a powerful defense against social altruists. Can you think of a better present to offer the individual?
Altruism remains the the enemy of individual rights. When it becomes institutionalized the carnage begins…because it mutates in social altruism. Let’s explore a deadly enemy of the Objectivist Warrior.
Social Altruism and the Good of Society
One of the social altruist’s favorite slogans is “This is for the good of society.” Have you ever asked yourself who this society character is? We hear about him, but we’ve never met him. Could society possibly be a woman? It sounds like a woman’s name. All kidding aside, I’m sure you get the point. There is no such thing as “society”. The term is a concept describing the combination of all individuals.
What does a social altruist mean by “the good of society”? Obviously, he can’t be referring to all individuals. He advocates measures that keep some from enjoying freedom of choice. What he really crusades against is some of his fellow citizen’s choices. He violates your personal liberty and economic freedom by crusading against your personal choices.
Do you know that social altruists believe in selflessness and self-denial. They exhort individuals, such as you, to sacrifice your best interests for that great god “society.” At different times in history, they used other names for their master, such as “state”, “collective” etc. Now they seem to be enamored with the term “politically correct.” Whatever they choose to call their brand of slavery, it always means the sacrifice of the individual for the “good” of others.
The Social Altruism Cult
Like all cult-like movements, the irrational beliefs of social altruists, do-gooders and world-improvers violate Natural and Economic Law, resulting in the poverty, misery and degradation of the masses.
Social altruism has obtained a cult status…and it’s deadlier than any that has ever existed. It now controls the affairs of “State.” It uses the politically correct BS in order to brainwash the masses into accepting the withering away of their individual rights. The book 8 Dynamic Weapons for Conquering Life’s Illusions explains how cult-leaders turn their followers into mindless idiots—“sheeple” who fit into a collectivist society.
“Cults, cliques and organizations often obscure the steps to attaining accelerated awareness. They present some esoteric program you must follow day after day, month after month, year after year. In order to keep you interested, the guru or leader feeds you one morsel at a time. In addition you must completely surrender your current lifestyle for one that severely restricts your personal liberty and economic freedom.
You must realize that many people at the top view the world as a zero sum game. Your loss becomes their gain. As you slowly “progress” your power actually diminishes while the guru’s power greatly increases. Can you imagine what a flock of “sheeple” does for the guru’s already inflated ego. You can see why members of a cult appear as mindless idiots. What do you have left after you surrender your body, mind and spirit? A big zero. You already know that the impeccable warrior, the Rationally Selfish Individual takes control of his body, mind and spirit. Before he would allow a phony motivational or spiritual leader to swindle these out of him, he would have already put his Dynamic Weapons in action.” Well, social altruists are as phony as paper gold.
Here’s a social altruist’s agenda: First these perpetrators of economic mayhem destroy the productive members of “society” through taxes, inflation, government regulations and other confiscatory measures. Then they allow this insanity to cannibalize the benefactors of the producers—the consumers. Does that sound like the kind of cult you want to join?”
The Objectivist Warrior Rejects Collectivism
Consider this. The problem with the “reasoning” of social altruists and various other do-gooders and world-improvers is their belief system slips, slides and then tumbles upside down. These meddlers think from the point of view of the “collective” instead of the individual. The Objectivist Warrior believes in the sanctity of the individual. He (she) rejects the slavery of collectivism.
I’m sure you know there is definite proof that individuals exist. There is you, I, John and Mary. It should be obvious to all that we can expose the social altruist’s idea of what constitutes a collective or society as a figment of his imagination. Society is only a term that describes the combination of all its members. Any analysis of human action has to begin with the individual. Only individuals act. Without individuals, there is no such thing as a society or a collective.
If a miracle occurred and an social altruist became enlightened, he would be using the term “for the good of the individual.” However, he would have to give up his bloodthirsty desire for power.
Here’s an absolute fact. Natural Law means that an individual has a right to his life, liberty and property. No one morally has a right to forcibly to take these from him.
Economic Law demonstrates that governmental interference with voluntary exchanges results in undesirable consequences. It proves beyond a reasonable doubt that the system of unhampered capitalism harmonizes with sound economic reasoning.
Certainly, social altruists violate these laws when they babble on about “the good of society.” Tragically, they cause much destruction and misery when they impose this nonsense on others.
If it’s obvious to anyone with a functioning brain the anti-life philosophy of social altruism fails miserably…why do its advocates keep imposing it on us? We know one reason is power. Here’s the second sinister reason. Some social altruists possess such an inner hatred towards people, that they purposely advocate measures that lead to poverty, misery and degradation.
Defend Your Personal Liberty and Economic Freedom from Social Altruists
You’re intelligent enough to know that the starting point in an analysis of human action is the individual.
Let me ask you this. What other starting point could there possibly be? If a social altruist attempted to take his illogic to its logical conclusion, he would begin his investigations with perhaps hundreds or even thousands of individuals. If he were consistent he would begin his analysis with the total population of earth. I’m sure you can see the absurdity of this broken chain of reasoning. If only he would get back in touch with reality and acknowledge methodological individualism and the axiomatic concepts of existence, identity and consciousness. Instead he seeks absolute power over the people he fervently hates. By the way, do you know that Adolph Hitler was a social altruist?
If it was possible for an social altruist to violate the laws of the physical sciences, without the immediate effects of his greed and stupidity becoming apparent, I believe he would try it. I’m sure he would receive some perverse pleasure from seeing you attempt it.
Visualize this. See him putting the final touches on a new building by tearing it down piece by piece. Even more bizarre, observe him disassembling a human body as a therapeutic health measure? He would destroy everything in sight, just as he is now attempts to eradicate civilization and the hopes, dreams and ambitions of countless number of individuals.
If we discussed the psychological reasons for the beliefs and actions of a social altruist we would enter a dark area of a warped mind…a place of extreme evil. His favorite social systems are Nazism, fascism, communism and other forms of socialism.
Once again, allow yourself to consider this disturbing fact. Social altruists have a deep hatred for the individuals that make up the human race, although it is often on a subconscious level. Because of this, they disdain every single characteristic of goodness and productivity the heroic individual displays. These misery mongers especially despise honest capitalists, entrepreneurs and the rationally selfish people who make survival on our planet possible.
Here’s an important question. If successful businessmen suddenly become social altruists does this indicate self-hate lurking somewhere in their subconscious mind? Ayn Rand said something about the “sanction of the victim.” Anyway, social altruists prefer irrational people who they can easily control…and who are the first to line up at the government’s banquet of free goodies.
Fortunately, there are individuals of high self-esteem, who hold their life as their highest value. Unfortunately, these lovers of personal liberty and economic freedom are subjected to the extreme envy of social altruists. Deep down a social altruist is a miserable, hateful human. When he sees someone experiencing the joy of his existence, he feels an insatiable desire to smack him down. What other way is there for him to justify his own existence?
Choose Your Destiny
Now we have to make a choice that is critical for the survival of individualism and the future of our planet.
First Choice: Social Altruism: Anti-Life
Social Altruism sinks into the abyss as an evil philosophy advocating violations of Natural and Economic Law. It attacks innocent individuals. In practice it attempts to annihilate everything that is good, sublime and rational. It is anti-life. When a social altruist says he acts for “the good of society” you know he plans to violate the life, liberty and property of the lone individual…who by the way reigns as the smallest minority on earth. He just “loves” to sacrifice the virtues of productive people with his cannibalistic, collectivist death wishes. What happens when he runs out of sacrificial victims? He is left with only one alternative—suicide.
Second Choice: Rationally Selfish Choice: Individualism
Individualism, the philosophy of Rationally Selfish people and impeccable warriors soars as life-giving philosophy that believes in the sanctity of the individual. It corresponds with Natural and Economic Law, realizing that unhampered capitalism is the only social system suited to the needs of its individuals. It doesn’t recognize the anti-life philosophy of social altruism, except as the evil it is. Individuals do not exist as sacrificial fodder for others’ irrational needs and desires. They have a right to live for their own sake. A man or woman should joyously celebrate his or her existence. All meaning in life begins and ends with the individual and the relationships he cultivates with those who seek value for value experiences. The book 8 Dynamic Weapons for Conquering Life’s Illusions supplies you a psychological arsenal of attack and self-defense. You do not have to be at the mercy of social altruists, irrational people and members of the Elite. You and your loved ones can capture personal liberty and economic freedom.
