Git Along, Now

This week's Objectivist Round Up is hosted over at Amy Mossoff's blog The Little Things. So giddy up and git on over there to check out a sample of writing gathered from various people who are all "animated by Objectivism," the philosophy of Ayn Rand, writer of Atlas Shrugged.
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.

And don't forget, the best information about Objectivism is presented by Ayn Rand herself. And the best collection of her writing can be found at the Ayn Rand Bookstore, so you should mosey on over there, too.


I'm sorry. I'm having a hard time dropping my deeply held cowboy connection to the term "round up". Oh, all right! I don't want to drop it.

You're funny--I have the same Yeehaw association in my brain, too--and I love it!

I finally figured out it's best just to embrace it rather than try to deny myself that small pleasure.
