Welcome to the April 24, 2008 edition of the Objectivist Round Up!
In Honor of Earth Day
C. August presents How to Protect a Four Year Old from Earth Day? posted at Titanic Deck Chairs, saying, "This was a quick post about how to address Earth Day with a young child, and it turned into quite a popular topic, with comments from a number of Objectivist parents on everything from dealing with tough issues to homeschooling."
Darren Cauthon presents Earth Day Advice posted at Darren Cauthon, saying, "Here's a short little article I wrote to give my family and friends a different view of Earth Day. I also sent it to a local talk show, who read it over the air!"
Nicholas Provenzo presents The Earth Day Alternative posted at The Rule of Reason, saying "If the welfare of human life was the standard by which we judged industry and technology, there would be no reason to have a day like "Earth Day." Rather than the environmentalists parading their assault on anything and everything that is a mark of human existence on the planet, we would instead celebrate industry and technology as the very means by which mankind has moved into an era of happiness, health and prosperity."
Paul McKeever presents The Psychology and Morality of Buying Flowers for Your Lover posted at Paul McKeever. Hmmmm....I hope my husband reads this post! Or chocolate. I'd take chocolate! :o)
I'm inclined to agree!
Flibbert presents Video: Islamo-Crazy Commentor posted at Flibbertigibbet, saying, "OK. I couldn't resist. This is my post about my very first hate-mail on YouTube and it came from an Islamo-Fascist who invited me to a death camp for being a raging homosexual.
I don't know about you, but I am inclined to think that if you're doing something to offend Islam, then you're doing something right."
Ari Armstrong presents Americans Wary of Atheists posted at AriArmstrong.com, saying, "A Gallup poll shows that 45 percent of Americans view atheists negatively. What are the basic reasons and implications of the polling data?"
