Objectivist Round Up #35

Welcome to the March 13, 2008 edition of the Objectivist Round Up. As always, this carnival presents some of the best posts from the last week by Objectivist blog authors. If, after reading these posts, you are interested in learning more about Ayn Rand or Objectivism, then you are highly encouraged to visit the Ayn Rand Institute--or your local bookstore!

T Ellis presents There's Something Wrong With You posted at evanescent, saying, "Are humans hopeless sinful dirty losers? Or can we actually achieve moral perfection and be the kind of the beings that religion and society in general tell us we can't be?"

Gideon Reich presents Thoughts on Homeschooling posted at Armchair Intellectual, saying, "Some thoughts on homeschooling from an Objectivist perspective." You know? It's nice that there are so many Objectivist homeschoolers.

C. August presents The Smoking Ban: Protecting Us from Ourselves, Since 2004 posted at Titanic Deck Chairs, saying, "I was reminded just a week or two ago how much I love the fact that Boston bars are smoke-free, and how annoying it is to like the effects of an anti-individual rights law. Read the post to find out if I support the Massachusetts smoking ban... (yes, a blatant teaser to get you to read the blog)." Aw, go read it--you know you wanna!

Jason presents Exclusivity and Love posted at Erosophia, saying, "I'm writing a new essay on the exclusivity of love and I need your help!" Go visit and be sure to leave a comment!

Ari Armstrong presents Biddle Defends Open Immigration posted at, saying, "Craig Biddle of The Objective Standard makes an excellent case for open immigration. I expand upon a couple of points." Ari is always worth a read.

Gus Van Horn presents Property: A Right, Not a "Privilege" posted at Gus Van Horn, saying, "An airline has to fly a plane across the Atlantic to make sure it has enough planes on hand to bring some passengers home. On the way, it treats five passengers to first class. Its reward? Getting slammed for "waste" because the burning of jet fuel occurred." You know what I think would save fuel? Not having airplanes at all.

That concludes this edition! The next edition will be out next Thursday. If you are an Objectivist blogger and would like to participate in the next carnival, then submit your blog article by Wednesday, March 19 at 11pm Eastern to the next edition of the Objectivist Round Up using our carnival submission form.
