How To Eliminate a Blogger You Want to Kill

It's simple. You post comments having nothing to do with a movie review but only with the reviewer. You bring a flame war from another site - objectivistliving - over here.

I think it's the intellectual quality of her supporters that continually force a misunderstanding of Rand.

MARGIN CALL : Seeing It Through Post Modern Thought

A perfect movie although not why you might think.

The financial crash of 2008, predicted by DeLillo in Cosmopolis and by Rand in Atlas Shrugged, albeit both clairvoyants saw it differently.

Remembering the Real Ayn Rand
The author of "Atlas Shrugged" was an individualist, not a conservative, and she knew big business was as much a threat to capitalism as government bureaucrats.

By DONALD L. LUSKIN
The Wall Street Journal

Tomorrow's release of the movie version of "Atlas Shrugged" is focusing attention on Ayn Rand's 1957 opus and the free-market ideas it espouses.

Bye bye blogging (& Twitter ...)

Duncan Bayne's picture
Submitted by Duncan Bayne on Thu, 2010-08-12 13:29

In an effort to spend more time focusing on what I enjoy, and less time writing about it, I'm no longer blogging or Tweeting. I now have a static website up at www.fluidscape.com, which I'll be updating on a highly infrequent basis (basically whenever I complete a project, or release new software).

It's been a long while since I participated here - mostly due to my developing a profound cynicism w.r.t. all things political, & deciding to spend my time in other areas, mostly offline - but I see most of the old regulars are still here & active (& that the AGW thread is still on the front page ... damn that's long-lived).

Have fun guys & gals ...

THE FREE RADICAL ‘Summer Reader’: The Crisis Edition

Peter Cresswell's picture
Submitted by Peter Cresswell on Thu, 2008-12-18 02:45

TFR80-Cover Hi to you all, and welcome to a ‘Summer Reader’ of the Free Radical.  This is the Crisis Edition, and it’s packed with great reading on the economic crisis; who caused it and how, and what politicians and their servants are doing now that will only make it all worse.

George Reisman, David McGregor, Gene Callahan, Stephen Hicks, Sean Gabb and Jeff Perren make sense out of nonsense, and order out of economic chaos.

On it’s own that’s the price of your copy back right there.  But that’s not all!

THESIS: 'Clark Vader and the Helengrad Labour Lesbians'

These days, you can get a graduate diploma in political science at Victoria University of Wellington by analysing "John Banks and Lindsay Perigo, in their host roles on the Radio Pacific breakfast talk show 'The First Edition,'" in particular their "political-symbolic hate campaign" against Helen Clark which was "crystallised," says research student Lewis Stoddart, "into a characterisation which I describe as ‘communist lesbian dictator’."

Seeing as it's Sorry Week in Australia, here's an apology I'd like to see some honest NZ education department apparatchik deliver.

Today I'd like to honour the New Zealand children who were delivered by government force into our care, and whom we rewarded by abusing their parents' trust and depriving them of the human potential with which they were born.

We reflect on your past mistreatment, and we have to say: we were responsible.
