I used to be an Objectivist but it is no longer the position I find to be most rational nor does it appear to be the best for my self-interest. It was a good phase though.

too eerie, I share this with you as well. Two posts for two. I'm going to stop looking through your posts or else I'm going to scare myself.

It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

You should definitely be afraid of having too many similarities with me.

I guess we all have to be scared sometimes.

I want someone else to do my homework, because I haven't the faintest idea what these people are talking about.

Finally, someone honest. Refreshing.

Excuse me? I don't think I said that about doing my homework for me, and in terms of narrowing the focus, I am requesting arguments for and against from someone else's perspective rather than my own. I do not need clarification on objectivism, Iunderstand it.

Then you understand that "Objectivism" is a mouthful to argue about.

Just wishing to point out, I already stated that I could formulate my own arguments on objectivism, but that I was wishing for other imput. Here's some focus narrowing:

Is objectivism a moral strategy?

I understand that's not much better, but bear with me. (or go away)
