    Two Paths to Utopia

    In man's conscious: reason, mind, values, concepts, thought, judgment, volition, purpose, memory, independence, self-esteem. All these exist, they are not illusions, myths, superstitions. These are man's inner world, that inner world, very important. In "Atlas Shrugged", there is two variants...

    Climate change and capitalism

    Climate is primarily a scientific problem, not a political problem. If say your neighbor damages the climate, we have courts, laws against that. You can hold him responsible for messing around with the environment. Laissez-faire capitalism, only a social system based on individual rights, it...

    Hacking Covid

    Is this coronavirus man-made or a metaphysical given. A metaphysical given, it cannot be changed. Man-made did not have to exist, but once made, does exist. Nothing made by man had to be:::it was made by choice. The metaphysical given cannot be true or false, it simply is...

    Why do you think that in capitalism it is so important to erode the person?

    Well, capitalism protects our survival. And it is all about human freedom, freedom is the fundamental requirement of man's mind. Why would a person like to go back to the Dark Ages, slave labor, executions without trial, torture chambers, concentration camps, mass slaughter...capitalism...

    How do you arrive at you morality?

    First of all, my morality, the morality of reason, ex. existence exists. Another thing, one choice--to live. Everything else proceeds from these. Take reason-purpose-self-esteem. These three requires all of man's virtues. In dealing with morality, you are dealing with man's free will, man's...

    can the brain/mind exist without the body

    A body without a brain(soul) is a corpse; a brain without a body is a ghost. A corpse and a ghost, let's not surrender the world to evil.

    i'm not an engineer, i'm an artist.

    Art is a kind of language, it uses language as a tool. Language is an objective instrument, that have objective meanings. An INTP's art are whatever, maybe they are nonobjective? maybe subjective? Like the modern dictionary vs the old dictionary. INTP's have loosely defined words, need definite...

    Why do you think that in capitalism it is so important to erode the person?

    Capitalism-Marx slang/negative word for free enterprise. The first question to answer. The rest is immaterial. The basic issue is only: Is man free? In all of history, capitalism is the only system that answers: Yes. It is all about freedom, the recognition of individual rights, a capitalist...

    materialism

    The truth about Karl Marx was, his whole concept was to deprive man of his right to life, to deny all rights to the man of ability, atone for what man has earned. Marx the mystic, the collectivist, a street corner evangelist, the man of envy. In economic classes, Marxism, Keynesianism- how you...

    What is space really?

    Space is not an entity, like time, it is a relational concept. A relationship only existing in the universe. Everything is finite, even the universe. Nothing outside the universe, that would be a contradiction. Everything is in a position, means a certain relationship to the boundary to some...

    what is the mathematics of the universe

    Let's say we slide a box along the floor by pulling it with a string or pushing it with a stick. We are to slide it by exerting a force on it. The point is that the motion of the box is caused not by the 'objects which push or pull on it, but by the forces which these exert. There is magnitude...

    Why philosophy sucks

    Three questions I ask: Where am I? How do I know it? What should I do? I am in Guernsey, that is self-evident. How do I know it. It is self-evident. What should I do? Whatever everybody else does. Well, I do not see a lot of happy people in the world, not very confident, they fear, undefined...

    The single flaw with hard determinism

    Objectivism rejects the theory that nothing could ever have happened differently from the way it did & everything in the future is pre-set & inevitable. I am an Objectivist and I reject this theory. I believe in freedom for man, reason, volition, do not accept that man must always the a slave of...

    What is space really?

    Space is a relational concept. Well, the universe is not in space, it is not in time. Let's be logical, there is space between two objects, each occupying different positions. The universe cannot be anywhere because places etc are in the universe, not the other way around. Everything is finite.
