Welcome to the January 24, 2008 edition of the Objectivist Round Up. We have a really fired up group of bloggers this week, so get ready!
Kendall Justiniano presents Fix the Damn Dollar posted at The Crucible & Column, saying, "It's gonna be a grim year next year if the FED doesn't get on the ball and fix its massive monetary blunder. This administration is no friend of capitalism. Fix the Damn Dollar!" Woohoo!
John Drake presents ISP packet filtering posted at Try Reason!, saying, "AT&T wants to filter your Internet communications. While they have every right to do so morally, it may be dangerous practically while our legal environment persists. This short post looks at some of the issues involved."
Rational Jenn presents American Community Survey Update! posted at Rational Jenn, saying, "If you were wondering about the questions asked by our government on the American Community Survey, look no further! This is crazy and must be stopped."
Flibbert presents Girl Interrupted posted at Flibbertigibbet, saying, "This week I went on a tear about MRSA and gays because the Christians were out saying idiotic things about gay people and disease again. They make me nuts. And then I had what I think is an interesting post about the horrid economic condition we're in. But instead of submitting a serious post, I wanted to submit this fun post mostly just because I crack myself up. This is what results when I'm at the office for 16 hours and hopped up on soda pop. Stand clear!" Classic Flibbert, highly recommended.
Monica presents Crazy Masquerading as Philosophy posted at Spark A Synapse, saying, "This is very long post about the animal rights movement, the organizations involved in spearheading it, and their attempt to eliminate domestic animals (yes, I'm talking extinction) through mandatory spay/neuter laws. If you are a pet owner, don't say I didn't warn you!" Love the title! Some eye-opening stuff for the likes of me, who is not all that up on what some animal rights activists are advocating.
Gus Van Horn presents "Indeed" Indeed. posted at Gus Van Horn, saying, "The abolitionists are worth a look when considering how to effect massive political change for the better." An interesting insight into how a principled person should handle choosing between the lesser of evils in a political election.
Deb Ross presents Arrogance? posted at Mariposario, saying "A commentary about homeschooling from an Objectivist homeschooler." To which I add my own Objectivist homeschooler comments: "Yes!" "Hear, hear!" and "Damn straight!"
Thank you so much for these great posts! Aren't you just inspired? I sure am!
