Is Edward Snowden a hero?
Hell yes! His actions were moral.

Among the sidebars on the Intellectual Property thread is a discussion of the religiosity of Objectivists, who, it is claimed (by the anti-IP posters), routinely display a morbid predilection for name-calling and mantra-repetition in lieu of original thought (even though most of the name-calling on that thread comes from the non-Objectivist anti-IP quarter, while the main pro-IP advocate, Objectivist Michael Moeller, comports himself unimpeachably).

[From the archives, originally a 1999 Politically Incorrect Show editorial, reprised to coincide with Tom Burroughes' thread, Do You Want to Be in My Gang? The last line, given what has actually happened in the last thirteen years, shows me to have been wildly over-optimistic.]

I remember the furore caused by Pt 1 , where I posted The Priests singing Schubert's Ave Maria and pointed out that Objectivism was still failing to capture the sense of sacredness hitherto monopolised, with obscene inappropriateness, by Goblianity.

Paul: Exruciatingly incoherent as ever. I'm no Ronroid, as everyone here knows, but I wish he'd do better—it doesn't hurt to have the case for any kind of military presence overseas tested. Even I could put the Islamappeasers' case better than he. Best line was his first: "Because he's a fake" [of Rick Santorum].

SOLO-International Op-Ed: The Anti-American President, Pt 10—Obama the Smarmer
January 30, 2012
The brazen deceitfulness that pervaded President Obama's State of the Union address last week has been duly noted in the days since. Many commentators have wondered publicly what I asked incredulously of the innocent TV set privately: “How can you say that with a straight face?!”

Having endured several months of exposure to the [anti-]philosophy of blandification during my stint with ACT, and having campaigned for years against the insidious anti-KASS polemicizing of the lying Smearer-in-Chief who hovers on Objectivism's fringe attempting to destroy it by disarming it, I find moments like the following more than a breath of fresh air ... they are hurricanes of pure oxygen, and they are intoxicating.

This has nothing to do with Objectivism as such, but it possibly matters in the grand historical scheme of things, given the deceit by government of the people that is entailed.
