Anarchists who identify themselves as agreeing with Objectivism's fundamentals but not its politics mistakenly think that they have a rock-solid argument for why the state must necessarily aggress, even if the monopoly government is constitutionally limited to upholding rights and is freely elected.

As some regulars here know, a complaint that is made of today’s Objectivist movement is that it does not have much to say about certain topics, or does so only intermittently.

As an unapologetic dinosaur I spend a lot of time in despair over Generation Airhead—that is, just about all "people" under 30, aliens in human guise who don't read, can't speak, and shuffle around like zombies to the jungle beat of headbanging in their iPods. With what unmitigated astonishment and pleasure, then, did I take in Te Koki School of Music's (under-30s, students) presentation of Verdi's Il Corsaro on Sunday afternoon. For once, Generation Airhead's favoured accolade, "awesome," could be employed with impunity.
