Objectivist Roundup #62

Welcome to the September 18, 2008 edition of the Objectivist Roundup.

This week's round up includes some great insights and analyses written by authors who are animated by Objectivism, the philosophy of Ayn Rand. According to Ayn Rand:

My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.

"About the Author," Atlas Shrugged, Appendix.

Paul McKeever presents Elizabeth May: You're Stupid, So Vote Green posted at Paul McKeever. , saying, "If you want rock-solid evidence that Rand was right about environmentalism being a cover for the anti-industrial revolution, one can do no better than to read about the Green Party of Canada's Elizabeth May.
