A proper philosophy doesn't just enlighten and empower the mind -- it strengthens the heart and uplifts the soul. It develops and expands a person's interior.

On the rare chance that anyone in organized Objectivism Land actually reads anything that challenges some of their core beliefs, I would like to introduce them to Islam's "Rule of Numbers".

I am going to keep this thread permanently blue-stickied, like Marcus's Global Warming thread, Philip Duck's UN thread, etc. It will serve as a repository for exhibits in my case that America has now become Airhead America indisputably -- comprachicoed, cretinized, lobotomized, infantilized, collectivized, Slayerized, zombified, pomofied, Gramscified, Alinskyfied and generally filthified beyond recognition (from the Founding Fathers' Republic) and beyond salvation. It is not a cliff that America hovers atop; it is the abyss.

Gun Control: Controlling the Government’s Guns
The recent mass shootings in Aurora, Colorado and then in Oak Creek Wisconsin have led to renewed demands for “gun control” aimed ultimately at depriving the individual citizen of his Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. It is believed that if the individual were deprived of this right, such shootings would not take place, because of the sheer lack of available weaponry.

"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.

SOLO-International Op-Ed: 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.
