When I realized they had set it up that way I thought about it, but then it also occured to me that if it was spelled right it would just turn into another place to discuss Atlas shrugged. That and I just never got around to finding out how to do it. :-)

Rand may have named and outlined Objectivism, but at it's heart it is a way of describing the rational approach. Though I agree with her in most things I don't follow Rand, I follow myself. This is one thing she stressed greatly and yet like most visionaries her message has been taken as a crutch by those who would live through it and her rather than stand on their own sense of life. Not that that has much to do with why you replied but I figured it might promote a discussion worth having.
