Objectivist Carnival #19 (Again!)

So now I've learned to count and THIS edition is really the 19th! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope you enjoy this edition of the Objectivist Round Up.

Shaun Connell presents Contradictions and Continuity posted at Reason and Capitalism, saying, "Objectivist Shaun Connell explains one of Rand's basic arguments regarding logic -- contradictions do not exist."

Shaun Connell presents Capitalism posted at Reason and Capitalism, saying, "Shaun Connell hosts a series of essays on capitalism from both a philosophical and pragmatic point of view. Capitalism rewards the creator and punishes the second-hander."

Valda Redfern
presents Grammatical neutrality posted at Valzhalla, saying, "A grammar nerd makes fun of a regular offender."

Gus Van Horn
presents Who's Scary? Or What? posted at Gus Van Horn, which is a look at two of the Republican Presidential Candidates, Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul.

Damon Payne presents FSM posted at Damon Payne, a look at one of my favorite deities, the Flying Spaghetti Monster (may I be touched by His Noodly Appendage), and what constitutes religion.

Jenn presents Best. Thanksgiving. Rolls. Ever. at Rational Jenn. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

As always the opinions presented in these posts are those of the author and should not be construed as officially sanctioned by the ARI. The best way to learn about Ayn Rand's ideas is to read her books, fiction and nonfiction, and to visit the ARI website. I encourage everyone to do so.

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of objectivist round up using our carnival submission form.

Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

Two quick notes:
1. I appreciate the link. I have an automatic code that returns the favor on my website. Check out the two posts that you linked to, and you'll notice on the right hand side, there should be a backlink for you.

2. I'm a homeschool student. It's refreshing to see the achievements of other Objectivists in the area of homeschooling. =)

Thanks, Ergo!

Shaun, nice to hear from you and thanks for participating in the carnival.! Homeschooled, too! For us, there was really no other option. Although we have yet to post any significant achievements, as my kids are still little, so we're not really doing anything "official" yet. I'm interested in learning about what kind of curriculum you followed and how you liked the experience.
