Open Letter to Objectivists—Make Objectivism Great Again!

[This is an expanded version of the opening statement I had prepared for my aborted debate with Yaron Brook on Amy Peikoff's BlogTalkRadio show, "Don't Let It Go." I withdrew from the debate when I realised I could not in all conscience comply with her last-minute request that I refrain from making "sweeping statements" critical of Yaron. Warning: the following contains a number of sweeping statements critical of Yaron.]

"It's morning again in America," said Ronald Reagan when running for re-election in 1984. The facts and the voters backed him, and he was returned to the presidency in a landslide.

Devoy vs Voltaire

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2017-02-08 22:50

Apocryphally, in 1770, the French writer and provocateur François-Marie Arouet (Voltaire) wrote to a French priest, “Monsieur l'abbé, I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write." Actually, he said no such thing. Biographer Evelyn Beatrice Hall, trying to capture the libertarian essence of his attitude to the burning of a book whose content he disapproved of, came up with: “I disapprove of what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it.” The saying, formulated that way, has been attributed to Voltaire ever since.


Make Western Civilisation Great Again!

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Thu, 2016-12-29 04:25

Undeniably, the biggest events of 2016, seismic in their enormity, were Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. Because of those two events, for the first time in eight years we could say that Western Civilisation had rallied to mount a rearguard action against The Anti-West, aka Islamo-Marxism, aka The Filth. The latter were in pouting, infantile retreat, alternately sullen and hysterical, unable to comprehend that the seeming hegemony of their loathsome, totalitarian world view was not invincible after all.

"Magnificent Pandemonium"—Linz vs Muslims and Their Enablers

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2016-08-17 03:12

This is the speech I delivered almost in its entirety in my capacity as special commentator, along with Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy, at Monday night's semi-final in the intra-university Next Generation Debates series at Auckland University. I say "almost in its entirety" because a gaggle of Muslims became very vocal near the end of my speech and demanded, successfully, I be stopped at once for having gone over my allocated time. The point at which I was shut down is noted in the text below.

"The emotion involved in art is not an emotion in the ordinary meaning of the term. It is experienced more as a 'sense' or a 'feel,' but it has two characteristics pertaining to emotions: it is automatically immediate and it has an intense, profoundly personal (yet undefined) value-meaning to the individual experiencing it.

Intro to 'Total Passion'

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2014-06-14 23:05

Kyrel Zantonavitch's new review on Amazon of my book, 'Total Passion for the Total Height,' prompted me to start re-reading the thing myself. As I made my way through the Introduction I became quite exercised by the trenchant accuracy of my own observations, and motivated to lift myself from the pessimistic funk induced by the horrors of which I write. It occurred to me that I'd never published that Introduction here. Here it is (oh, and of course, buy the book if you want more!):

Fidel was as eloquent an embodiment of the reality that those who overthrow dictators become worse if not constrained by checks and balances and a pro-liberty philosophy—and that absolute power corrupts absolutely—as Robert Mugabe, with equally disastrous results. Moronnials, pomowankers, Obleftivists and The Filth generally will be requiring counselling—in safe zones free from micro-aggressions and triggering and White Privilege—over his death as much as they do over Trump's victory.

Free Speech's Fits and Starts

Note: originally written in 2007, this essay has been revised and updated to mark the 15th anniversary of 9/11 and to offend Muslims—Linz.

"Freedom is the fundamental requirement of man's mind. ... A gun is not an argument."—Ayn Rand

In my recent presentation, stopped short by evil Muslims, at Auckland University I noted the propensity for evil Muslims in civilised countries to take advantage of freedom of speech to hold demonstrations where they sport signs saying "Freedom of speech go to Hell!"

So Comey too is crooked.

Having laid out the case for prosecuting Lying Crooked Hillary for criminal negligence, the FBI Director then bizarrely and lamely concluded there was no case. She was, he allowed and devastatingly demonstrated, "extremely careless" in setting up an unsecured server and storing classified information on it; well, what is extreme carelessness if not "gross negligence"—exactly what Crooked would have been charged with?! There was no element of intent on Crooked's part (a ridiculous statement), added Comey; well, in law, there doesn't have to be.

I wrote this, and published it here, in 2009. The case for it is even stronger in 2016.

A Second Declaration of Independence

When in the course of human affairs it becomes necessary for citizens to break the political chains that hitherto have bound them, and to reclaim the individual sovereignty which is their birthright, it is opportune and appropriate for them to declare the causes which have impelled them to self-liberation. We, the freedom-loving citizens of the United States of America, choose to do so at this historic moment.
