I got asked for my philosophy on one foot. I personally never found Objectivism on one foot that useful. I thought it's too hard to understand if you don't already know what the stuff means.

From Apollo 11 to Martian Missions
On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin made those historic first footprints on the Moon. But the ensuing decades have been frustrating to those who assumed that Apollo 11 would lead to permanent lunar bases and colonies on Mars.

I expected the Zimmerman verdict to go the other way. I expect the worst in all things in this abominably inverted pomo-world where Pamela Geller is barred from Britain while Islamofilth is allowed to run amok, self-defence is murder, murder is self-defence, perpetrators are victims, victims are perpetrators, justice is about "heart" rather than facts—and "heart" decrees that the white guy is always in the wrong and always a racist.

There are two particularly hard parts of explaining why induction is false. First, there are many refutations. Where do you start? Second, most refutations are targeted at professional philosophers.

Objectivists accuse Popperians of being skeptics. Popperians accuse Objectivists of being infallibilists. Actually, both philosophies are valuable and largely compatible.

Karl Popper is often misunderstood because he says the debates for several major philosophy issues involve a false dichotomy. The question is misconceived; both sides are wrong; a new way is needed.
