Eugenic superhumans, self-aware computers, and superior space aliens are extremely unlikely to enslave or exterminate mankind. This is so, no matter how much we well deserve it!

"The emotion involved in art is not an emotion in the ordinary meaning of the term. It is experienced more as a 'sense' or a 'feel,' but it has two characteristics pertaining to emotions: it is automatically immediate and it has an intense, profoundly personal (yet undefined) value-meaning to the individual experiencing it.

We may need a new vocabulary for political liberty. Some of the current and accepted welfare state language -- even going back over 5000 years, to Sumaria and Eqypt -- seems loose and awful.

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.

Our ever-reliable ally, Israel, is urging President Obama to attack Syria. Or so says this article in the Huff post. It makes sense; Israel and the American-Israeli lobby want all our foreign policy to be in the national self-interest--of Israel.
