It's certainly true that there were evil people on the "right" at Charlottesville, but those evil people wanted to gather and give speeches and see if they could get some publicity. In short, they wanted to speak their evil. The communists came with the express intent of initiating violence against the people they call fascist.

Let the Make Objectivism Great Again series begin!

In this video series we will be discussing Linz' open letter to Objectivists (http://www.solopassion.com/nod...).

I like to call Linz' letter a Call to Arms, hence one of my goals here is to rally the troops.

We'll both try to analyze and discuss the open letter, its underlying principles and their consequences, and relate it to other works by Objectivist "dissidents", such as Ed Powell's immigration essay.

[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.]

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.

... In the 1989 Post profile Perigo expressed concerns about the depth of debate he was able to elicit on television: "we’ve become a sort of society where people don't analyse an argument: they attach brandnames to people who proffer arguments and think that they’ve dealt with the argument that way". In 1993 he infamously abandoned the medium, claiming that TVNZ news and current affairs was "braindead", and that stories of celebrities and trapped cats had superseded politics.

The Confessions of an Orthodox Objectivist

Submitted by Chanakya on Mon, 2017-04-17 03:03

I have a confession to make. For two years I was an Orthodox Objectivist.

On any usual day, I used to make nice and reverent comments in the social media about some Objectivist God or demigod (I will reveal later in the article who the Gods and the demigods are). I was a member of the “Orthodox brigade” on FB—we used to “like” each other’s nice and reverent posts and leave complimentary comments.

Yaron Brook and Amy Peikoff Discuss Immigration Without Linz

This is a complete transcript of the discussion between Amy and Yaron about immigration that occurred on Feb 10, 2017 in lieu of the promised debate between Linz and Brook. Brook himself is such a weasel and shifts his position on this issue over and over again depending on the circumstances and audience that I thought it was valuable for a complete record of his remarks be made and made public so that appropriate analysis and criticism can be made of them without actually having to repeatedly listen over and over to the audio recording, which is mind-numbingly painful to listen to.

No civilisation in human history has done more for the daily lives of men, women and children than Western culture has since the time of the 17th Century European Enlightenment. Due to its intense focus on individual liberty and the resulting attainments in science, medicine, law and technological innovation, the great lodestar of Western culture has burned fiercely for the cause of human flourishing.
