My issues with Objectivism (Or - Why I am NOT an Objectivist)
Submitted by Tore on Sat, 2014-06-21 08:37
I've been reading Objectivism literature and listened to Objectivist courses for ten years now. I know now that I never could be an Objectivist, because there are issues.
First of all, I do not see why animals cannot have protection from cruelty by law. If my neighbour beat my dog to a pulp, Objectivism says he could do that without even recieving a fine because "animals don't know what rights are"! If muslims want to slit their goats throats (hah), Objectivism says they could do that, fine, no problem.
And while we're on the subject of Islam... I am scared of even going there. Objectivism says they should be able to practice their religion as they see fit, unless they use physical force. Let's just say that I disagree. Any decent law in the West should BAN hijabs, for example.
Taxes should never be voluntary. Are you kidding? Risking anarchy just because "you cannot be a champion of individual freedom and the use of government force at the same time"? Count me out.
That was politics, a horribly boring subject. Hope I never have to talk about it again.
Elsewhere, Perigo, I almost always agree with your critisisms of Objectivism. Rational ANIMAL, social animal, romantic love, all that. I hope you start posting about Authenticism soon, because I am just so fucking curious about it! I know it will kick ass, of course, or should I say that it will be KASS? Maybe this will be "it" for me, y'know
