Internationally Known Philosopher Leaves Legacy of Scholarship on Aristotle and Ayn Rand
IRVINE, Calif.—It is with great sorrow that the Anthem Foundation for Objectivist Scholarship and the Ayn Rand Institute announce the death of American philosopher Allan Stanley Gotthelf, in Philadelphia, on August 30, 2013, after an extended battle with cancer. He was 70 years old.

Our ever-reliable ally, Israel, is urging President Obama to attack Syria. Or so says this article in the Huff post. It makes sense; Israel and the American-Israeli lobby want all our foreign policy to be in the national self-interest--of Israel.

Ayn Rand's analysis of the New Left "student rebellion" in the 1970's exposed a movement by students, acting on the worst of philosophical ideas being taught in the university classroom, to introduce force as a legitimate expression of political ideas.

Objectivist philosopher Allan Gotthelf passed away yesterday.
He was probably the most accomplished philosopher of The Generation that Knew Rand. He published extensively on Aristotle.

Anarchists who identify themselves as agreeing with Objectivism's fundamentals but not its politics mistakenly think that they have a rock-solid argument for why the state must necessarily aggress, even if the monopoly government is constitutionally limited to upholding rights and is freely elected.

As some regulars here know, a complaint that is made of today’s Objectivist movement is that it does not have much to say about certain topics, or does so only intermittently.

As an unapologetic dinosaur I spend a lot of time in despair over Generation Airhead—that is, just about all "people" under 30, aliens in human guise who don't read, can't speak, and shuffle around like zombies to the jungle beat of headbanging in their iPods. With what unmitigated astonishment and pleasure, then, did I take in Te Koki School of Music's (under-30s, students) presentation of Verdi's Il Corsaro on Sunday afternoon. For once, Generation Airhead's favoured accolade, "awesome," could be employed with impunity.
