Re: I don't really want a car but I guess I'm gonna have to get one

Ayn Rand, what did she believe exactly?

brimstone and I briefly brought up Ayn Rand. I have an idea of what Rand's 'Objectivist' philosophy (self-interest is the only way to morality), and I mistakenly thought that Rand and her cronies believed that altruism was immoral (as a moral system they think it's wrong, but not necessarily in and ...

I wouldn't call him downright ignorant on the subject, he's definitely very intelligent, (and again, did qu...

Re: My Actual Libertarian Experience

Bennett did OK, and I liked that he mentioned polar vortex as a consequence of climate change. I think he did pretty well for the most part. His weaker parts were when he was responding to questions and such, and made appeals to authority (not that he was wrong; to a rational, scientifically litera...

Re: The Tavern

Oh yeah I should mention that five years ago today, this forum was opened to the public.
Thank you all for the good times we've had! Learned a lot on this forum, not sure where I'd be without it.

Re: My Actual Libertarian Experience

Okay, to anyone interested, I was reinvited to go back to the Soho Forum to watch another debate. I know I said it before, but the resolution was: There is little or no rigorous evidence that vegetarian/vegan diets are healthier than diets that include meat, eggs, and dairy.
