What Motivates Obamacare Supporters?
October 25, 2013 -- Public policy issues should be discussed first and foremost in terms of their merits. The problem with discussing Obamacare is that most of its proponents seem immune from rational exchange. So we must ask, “What motivates them to support such a manifest public policy mess?”

"Rethinking Selfishness: Ayn Rand's New Conception of Egoism"
by Dr. Onkar Ghate
This lecture explores what makes Ayn Rand's idea of self-interest distinctive. Dr. Ghate explains why selfishness has served him as a source of unconventional but inspiring moral guidance.
Submitted by Pepe Estrepo on Tue, 2013-10-22 19:51
Lindsay Perigo’s idea of replacing the concept of selfishness with selffulness, or something similar, is a bright light of forward thinking in a rather conformist Objectivist culture that often treats Ayn Rand as the living God.

I wonder if, watching the clamorous melodrama in the United States Congress over the budget and the debt, the American public and world could miss the sound track--the theme song--playing in the background? Both sides of the clash were loudly playing the same theme song, but singing different words. Don't try to decipher the words, listen to the music.
