I’ve never voted for a Democrat in my life. However, you could say I’ve never voted FOR a Republican, either. What motivates me to enter the voting booth is always the prospect of voting against the Democrats. For a long time the Democrats have been a power-lusting statist party with totalitarian aspects. They lie about […]

I had a good laugh today driving back from dropping off some Objectivist literature at a local community college. Michael Medved was interviewing his wife on his radio show and she pointed out that one of the more popular scary political costumes selling this season is a Nancy Pelosi costume. (Good thing I can multi-task, […]

Unchaining the Good: Liberty and Tabula Rasa

October 17th, 2010 by Jim May · 11 Comments · Uncategorized

Over at PajamasMedia, “zombie” proposes that the Tea Party and the hippies of the 1960’s share a common set of ideas.  That sort of confusion sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

Charlotte Cushman asks the question “Is America a Christian Nation?” over at The American Thinker.  It’s short but sweet, a very well-crafted shot across the theocrats’ bow. Objectivists looking for target practice in refuting this Big Lie would do well to sift through the comments, which have become a veritable one-stop shop for all the […]

No Place at our Table

Obey Or Die

In the category of the Left bares its soul for all to see is this short video recently released by the environmentalist group 1010.    It pretty much makes explicit what has always been the Left’s attitude towards “global warming deniers” and others who refuse to jump on the bandwagon of their agenda. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xx4yr0FFhMQ Pretty horrifying.

A few weeks ago, a controversy erupted in the Objectivist community when John McCaskey resigned from the Ayn Rand Institute Board of Directors, over a severe disagreement with Leonard Peikoff regarding David Harriman’s book The Logical Leap. At the time, I decided to await further information before reaching any conclusions about the involved individuals.  This […]
