Objective Reality v. Fictional Lives
Submitted by Stephen Whittington on Tue, 2005-12-13 01:14
Objectivists always talk about the existence of an objective reality. Often they say drug use is bad (Ayn Rand did at least) because it distorts the view of reality and makes you live in a world of fiction which, to the objectivist, is as much a crime as being a social metaphysician.
Why, then, are they (and Rand in particular) so surprised at the 'Culture' we live in when they publish works or actually look around them? And why is it that they instead create a fictional world in the form of groups that serve no purpose but to, for a few hours a week, live in a world that does not exist? And why is it that the transcendence of an objectivist actually occurs when they live in that fictional world for life? "Do these people exist?" "Of course they do, you're looking at one of them, and there's one over there" said Ayn Rand as she pointed at Nathaniel Branden.
