Love of Rational Selfishness and Capitalism

Western Civilization teeters on the verge of collapse. The social and economic policies of the political and financial establishment sinks as a bloated mixture of quack Keynesian economics and spurious socialist dogma. You may believe the stock market indicates otherwise; however, any free market economist can expose the so-called recovery as a fraud. In addition, most people show no love for rational selfishness and laissez faire capitalism.

You may be wondering how it’s possible for us to feel any love towards fellow human beings…when so many seem to be caught up in a whirlwind of evil doings, while others apathetically put up with it. Ayn Rand statedEvil requires the sanction of the victim.”

Government Ought to Do Something Illusion

Doesn’t it perplex you that people search outside of themselves for answers to life’s problems. One of the worse places to seek answers is the government. Of course, greedy, altruistic people promise to supply the solutions. One quick glance at our economic woes tells us this isn’t the place to look.

During Ronald Reagan’s inaugural address delivered on January 20, 1981, he said “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problems: government is the problem. Well, things haven’t changed. People still believe in the illusion of government solutions to economic problems.

Action, Objectivism, Four Noble Truths of Buddhism

In the article Christian Objectivism: Possibility or Contradiction we explored whether Christianity is compatible with Objectivism…or not. Now it’s time to find out if the Four Noble Truths of Buddhist philosophy tie in with the philosophy of reason and action.

Do you ever think about your trials and tribulations and wonder if life is worth the daily effort you must put forth? You’ve probably noticed that as soon as one desire is satisfied a new one pops up and demands satisfaction. You feel as if you are on an endless treadmill of attempting to satisfy wants and desires.

Are you familiar with the “Four Noble Truths” of Buddhist philosophy? They are:

Christian Objectivism: Possibility or Contradiction

Sean Edwards states Christian Objectivism is a worldview that synthesizes the Christian faith with Ayn Rand’s philosophy called Objectivism.

It’s always nice when Objectivism attracts men and women to its marvelous philosophy of life. However, we must ask: “Is Christian Objectivism a possibility or a contradiction?” Let’s find out.

Federal Reserve System’s War on Honest Money

News Blitz: The Federal Reserve System’s War on Honest Money Will Eventually Create an International Monetary Crisis.

You may not know it, but the Fed’s currency manipulation schemes threaten to bring down the international house of monetary cards.

In Antony P. Mueller’s brilliant article What’s Behind the Currency War? from FEBRUARY 23, 2011 which is still pertinent, he states:

Alan Greenspan – Traitor to Objectivism?

We can place booms, busts, bubbles and economic catastrophes firmly on the lap of the Federal Reserve System. Individuals such as Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke should have know better…yet they contributed to monstrous booms that finally collapsed, leaving many people’s financial and personal affairs in complete disarray.

Around the hard money camp, these “prestigious” Fed Chiefs are known by their nicknames “Bubbles” Greenspan and “Helicopter” Bernanke. I’m not sure if old Alan got his nickname from his preference for bubble baths or bubble economies. Bernanke once remarked something about tossing dollars out of helicopters.

In this article, we’re concentrating on the monetary policies of Alan Greenspan. Let’s find out if his tenure as Fed Chief violates the economic policies Objectivists believe in. Is he a traitor to Objectivism?

Journey to Objectivism, Reason and Human Action

A person leaves school and vows he will never be subject to that torture again. The result: The disillusioned individual often drifts through life with a closed mind…and a resistance to new ideas and new ways of living. The virtues of Objectivism, reason and laissez faire capitalism remain outside of his awareness. Eventually, he (she) settles into a comfort zone of boredom and stagnation. Finally, his life becomes unsettled, filled with one crisis after another. A changing world won’t let him cling to his uninspiring routines.

Objectivist Philosophy and the Illusion of Existence

Let’s visit Objectivist Philosophy and investigate the illusion of existence.

Politics: Individual Rights and Capitalism

Objectivism supplies capitalism with its logical and moral foundation—with its spirited defense of individual rights. Objectivism is 100% correct in its advocacy of capitalism and individual rights.

Our current political system is corrupt and anti-life. Our “beloved” political and financial leaders unwittingly cause havoc to our faltering economic system. Years of government interventionism with help from the Federal Reserve System dealt our economy severe blows. Now it is on life support. And how does our economic “doctors” treat the patient? With the arsenic of ZIRP AND QE, guaranteeing the patient eventually expires from a combination of dehydration and massive internal bleeding. How many 0.25% increases do you think will cause its death?

Death of Objectivism and “Heartless” Ayn Rand?

Jennifer Burns, author of the Ayn Rand book “Goddess of the Market” claims “Ayn Rand is dead. It’s been 35 years since hundreds of mourners filed by her coffin (fittingly accompanied by a dollar-sign-shaped flower arrangement), but it has been only four months since she truly died as a force in American politics.” Does that indicate the death of Objectivism?

In her article “We just might miss the ‘heartless’ Ayn Rand” she also states “In electing Trump, the Republican base rejected laissez-faire economics in favor of economic nationalism.”
