Merry Christmas to everyone playing a part in promoting life-worship, reason, freedom, aesthetic grandeur and the all-round preservation of Western Civilisation—in particular to President Trump and the sinfully gorgeous Melania.

"Handel has for me an entirely fourth-rate significance, and he is not even entertaining."

Ayn Rand, Donald Trump and the 1972 Presidential Election

Grant Jones's picture
Submitted by Grant Jones on Tue, 2017-12-12 23:35

Ayn Rand wrote an insightful series of articles on the 1972 presidential election and its result. These articles were published in her periodical The Ayn Rand Letter. In order of publication, these articles are "The Dead End," "A Preview," "A Nation's Unity" and "The American Spirit." To my knowledge, none of these articles have been anthologized in the several posthumously published collections of Rand's articles.

Review: Pamela Geller, Fatwa: Hunted in America, 2017

Grant Jones's picture
Submitted by Grant Jones on Mon, 2017-12-11 01:40

On 3 May 2015 freeborn Americans held a "Draw Mohammed" contest and free-speech rally in Garland, Texas. The event was organized by Pamela Geller. It was her response to the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris and previous cartoon jihads. The event was attacked by two freelance jihadists with connections to ISIS. Fortunately, it was only the jihadists who died that day. Security was solid, despite the Obama FBI's refusal to notify event planners of their information regarding the planned attack. In response to this jihad attack on American soil, the media blamed the victims and poorly hid their disappointment that Geller wasn't killed.

In 1858, when Abraham Lincoln accepted the nomination to run against the Democrat Stephen Douglas for Illinois State Senator (a race which Lincoln lost), he gave his famous “House Divided” speech drawing on a biblical metaphor to illustrate the most pressing moral and economic issue facing his country at the time - black slavery.

Obleftivism's Egalitarianism - Objectivism's Selectivity

Bruno's picture
Submitted by Bruno on Wed, 2017-12-06 19:57

This article first appeared at Bruno Turner's Oath Valley - Where Objectivism is not Obleftivism

Objectivism is a comprehensive philosophy, which holds both political and moral views. Unlike the case with some left-libertarians, who hold (some) political principles of liberty but are part of the cultural and moral left, certain "Objectivists" have no excuse for this bifurcated behavior.

Is There a Right to Immigrate?

The whole basis of the "right to immigrate" argument starts with a kind of out-of-context, rationalistic, assertion of individual rights from which its proponents proceed to deduce conclusions.

The virtue most lacking in public life is courage. Cowardice is universal; the craven fear of social opprobrium makes lickspittles of almost everyone. Never has this been more true than now, when the dictates of Islamo-Marxism hold sway, manifested in a suffocating Political Correctness and the relentless advance of Sharia Law.

In C.S Lewis’ artful little book titled, The Screwtape Letters, Uncle Screwtape is the older, more experienced demon who advises in letter form his young, impetuous nephew, Wormwood, on the finer points of how to win “the patient’s” soul toward hell and our Father Below. Uncle Screwtape instructs Wormwood, “the safest road to hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts."

At communist centenary, many Americans still believe in collectivism
By Edward Hudgins
November 7, 2017

November 7 marks a century since the founding of one of the most murderous tyrannies in human history. Russia's communist empire was an appalling failure in every way, yet we often see the hammer and sickle, the symbol of the Soviet Union, carried on college campuses and at protests around the country. Communism still holds sway among a significant part of the U.S. population.
