NYC Ayn Rand Meetup, Sunday, November 26, 3:00pm
As always, we’ll talk about Ayn Rand, her works, challenges, Objectivist life, options, associations and knowledge. Give and take, open to all, no charge, no reservations. It’s on the last Sunday of each month.
It’s at The Midtown Restaurant, 155 East 55 Street, between 3rd and Lexington Avenues, mid-block on the north side of 55th Street, in Manhattan, free.
There are one to two dozen people at each Meetup. Benny Pollack, Ayn Rand Meetup organizer, says: “Join our group of regular Objectivists for a lively discussion on topics related to Ayn Rand and Objectivist philosophy in general.
“Please join us. If you are already versed in the topic, want to learn or just want to spend an intellectually stimulating afternoon, please come. I hope to see you all there.” Get up-to-date information here.
Producer of “The Godfather” lands rights to “Atlas Shrugged”
The NY Times reports: …has landed rights to make his passion project: a screen version of “Atlas Shrugged,” Ayn Rand’s Objectivist bible….almost had a deal back in the early 1970s, when he wooed Ms. Rand personally…
Ruddy now expects it to become a 6 or 8 hour television version of the novel — ideally, for a world-ranging Netflix-type streaming service.
Mr. Ruddy, who is working up an outline…sees his rendition as a love story, built squarely around its commanding female protagonist, Dagny Taggart.
The main thing, Mr. Ruddy said, is to honor Ms. Rand’s insistence on making a film for the future. That means redrawing its capitalists and creators, who go on strike against creeping collectivism, as figures more familiar than the railroad heiress and industrial titans who figured in a book that was first published in 1957.
“When you look at guys like Jeff Bezos, he’s not only doing Amazon, he wants to colonize Mars,” Mr. Ruddy said. “…his plan [is] for a mini-series in which an Internet blackout led by Bezos-like figures might shut down cellphones, banks and almost everything else.” Read all of this article here.
How to Raise a Life-Loving Child by Craig and Sarah Biddle
The purpose of parenting, as we see it, is not merely to raise a child to be an independent, happy adult. That is a goal of parenting (and an important one), but is not the overarching purpose.
The purpose of parenting, in our view, is to enable a child to learn about the world, to develop his mind and skills, and to make his own choices so that he can live well and love life — not only in adulthood, but also throughout childhood. That’s a mouthful. Fortunately, as we think you’ll come to agree, that lengthy idea can be condensed to: The purpose of parenting is to raise a life-loving child.
That purpose, however, is declarative. It states a truth and an aim, but it does not necessarily activate our minds toward that end. To turn this principle into a tool that activates our minds, we convert it into a question: What can I do (or refrain from doing) to enable my child to learn about reality, to develop his mind and skills, and to make his own choices so that he can live well and love life? Read all of this article here.
“The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels” and more from Alex Epstein
* Alex recently spoke to nearly 1,000 employees at a fossil fuel company, Pioneer Natural Resources. Each employee had been given a copy of “Moral Case for Fossil Fuels” by their CEO, Scott Sheffield. 3,750 employees in the company had a copy.
The book’s goal is to provide comprehensive education for anyone to confidently champion energy abundance, including fossil fuels.
It’s working, the employees got their books only a few days before Alex’s speech, but several had already read the whole book. One of the highlights of his career was speaking to the millenials at the company.
* A course for employees is coming. There are hundreds of thousands of employees eager to learn the full case for what they do. Alex is creating an Energy Champion Course for learning to talk one on one with friends, family and neighbors who’ve been steeped in the moral case against fossil fuels.
Any company giving the book to all its employees, at $11 to $13 each, will get a free copy of the Energy Champion Course for each employee.
* Read Chapter One of “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels,” The Secret History of Fossil Fuels.” It’s free here.
* The Energy Liberation Plan. It was planned to be out now but there’s so much interest in it by major political players, that Alex is working with them to create a full-blown national campaign with an even better shot at impacting the candidate’s energy positions in 2016.
* Alex’s new YouTube “Why You Should Love Fossil Fuel” seen by over half a million people. It’s part of Prager University, here.
* Alex’s “Power Hour” with professor Judith Curry talking about the influence of a celebrity filmmaker’s anti-fracking documentaries on HBO, here. And Alex’s column in Forbes on the four errors in thinking about fracking is here.
Ayn Rand quoted in 2016 calendar
“That’s What She Said 2016 Desk Calendar” is described this way: Simply and powerfully, bold women speak their truth. These women dared to live with passion, purpose, dignity, and grace. Their words model the way for generations of other remarkable women who follow in their footsteps. Each month features an inspirational quote.
The December quote paraphrases something of Rand’s. “The questions isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who’s going to stop me.”
I saw the calendar at Papyrus, a large national chain of card shops. See the calendar here.
“The Martian” movie, the best of the human spirit, Edward Hudgins
He writes: …an exciting film about an astronaut stranded on the Red Planet. It celebrates the heroism that comes from human reason. And it points to what it will take for humans in coming decades to make Mars a new home for humanity….
The Martian is an uplifting film that does not minimize the challenges of life; indeed, Watney explains that he knew going in that space travel was dangerous and that he could be killed. But he says that once you acknowledge that you might die, you deal with the problem at hand and the next and the next…. keep[s] up his optimism — without maudlin emotionalism or self-deceiving bravado. He must demonstrate intelligence and ingenuity. In all this we see the best of the human spirit! The whole review is here.
“Steve Jobs” movie, the best and the worst, by Edward Hudgins
…if you celebrate human achievement, you’ll wish the movie “Steve Jobs” gave us more of what made him a worthy subject of a movie to begin with. But in Aaron Sorkin’s script the visionary achiever also shines through and will have audiences reflecting on the nature of greatness.
If you’re a fan of Steve Jobs…you might find “Steve Jobs” the movie a bit hard to take. It shows the worst of the man. Read the rest of this review here.
Kira Peikoff’s newest novel-science-thriller “Die Again Tomorrow”
Each of her three novels has delivered a mixture of cutting-edge science, deeply human characters and explosive high-stakes controversies.
A review on Amazon: …Perfectly balanced blend of fascinating, thought-provoking REAL science and mind-bending thriller….most impressive is how the author manages to keep the reader guessing until the bitter end — you can never quite be sure which characters to trust. The identity of the villain came as a shock to my system — and I generally pride myself on seeing through a plot….each and every chapter somehow ends on a cliffhanger….Fast pace, thrilling until the very end and yet intellectually stimulating at the same time…. Read more comments here.
And Leonard Peikoff, her father, reviews her book here.
Three books by friends of Ayn Rand during the 1950s and 1960s
I just found out these three books existed. They’re written by a married couple who got to read the last chapters of “Atlas Shrugged” as Rand was writing them. All published fall 2013. I’ll be ordering the first two books. I learned a lot from both of these people, in the 1960s and 1970s, in the areas covered by these books,
* “Identity, Inner Life and Psychological Change” by Allan Blumenthal MD. Stresses the importance of understanding and “being in touch” with our personal nature. Inner life is the experience of the manner and content of thought, feeling and action that provides our sense of personal identity. It’s a requirement for fulfillment, motivation and, ultimately, for our self-esteem. Discusses psychological change: includes methods of dealing with particular problems — “The Four Faces of Trouble:” stress, anxiety, depression and guilt. Read several pages here.
* “The Ways and Means of Painting” by Joan Mitchell Blumenthal. Generously illustrated to provides insight into the painter’s tools — the means by which he achieves his goals. Understanding the artist’s considerations, techniques and methods can increase the appreciation and enjoyment of works of art. This is true for those devoted to the art of painting, also for the uninitiated. Illustrations and discussions include analyses of many paintings by Great Masters, from pre-Renaissance period to 20th century. Shows the development of this art form over the years. Read several pages with illustrations here.
* “Poems of Love, Friendship and Human Nature” by Joan Mitchell Blumenthal. These poems, written between 1980 and 2013, deal with joys and sadness of romance and loving, others with pleasures, inspiring qualities and dilemmas of friendship. Also poems about the natural world and its relation to human nature. All focus on universal aspects of human psychology. Read three of the poems here.
Dancing with the Muses: A historical approach to basic concepts of music
Zachary Johnson, often at Junto, had portions of his opera performed there. He wrote this book after years as teacher, composer, writer, lecturer and listener. It deals with living linear motion in music. It teaches melody and melodic coherence; the elements and basis of melody in interval, scale and time; the art of combining lines in a musical fabric; and the basic nature of harmony. It teaches concepts by means of the stories from history which gave rise to them. It continually addresses not only the definition of musical elements, but also their emotional effect. Learn more here.
Betsy Speicher’s book “The WHYS Way to Success and Happines”
It’s for general audiences, not just for Ayn Rand fans or professional intellectuals. While philosophical, it’s not what Rand would call “philosophy for Ragnar.” It’s philosophy for Rearden, for Eddie Willers and for the boy on the bicycle in Monadnock Valley.
It’s about epistemology and psycho-epistemology but, unlike Harry Binswanger’s “How We Know,” it doesn’t attempt to describe consciousness. Instead, it’s a small “how-to” book — a user’s manual for consciousness. It’s about an aspect of Rand’s unique thinking method that’s crucial to everyone’s well-being: causal reasoning.
The style is friendly, conversational, with entertaining stories, focused on principle-based solutions to real-life problems. How to find answers, be confident, improve your memory, master your emotions, reach your goals, solve your problems, be creative, persuade people and raise terrific children. You can start making your life better right now. Get it from Amazon here.
How Piketty Misses the Point, by Deirdre N. McCloskey
“…The fundamental problem is that Piketty does not understand how markets work. In keeping with his position as a man of the left, he has a vague and confused idea about how supply responds to higher prices. Startling evidence of Piketty’s miseducation occurs as early as page 6.
Piketty writes “…If the supply of any good is insufficient, and its price is too high, then demand for that good should decrease, which would lead to a decline in its price.” [He] clearly mix up movement along a demand curve with movement of the entire curve, an error of first-term college students. The correct analysis is that if the price is “too high” it is not the whole demand curve that “restores equilibrium,” but an eventually outward-moving supply curve. The supply curve moves out because entry is induced by the smell of super-normal profits.
Read the whole analysis in Cato Policy Report here.
Charles Koch explains how he built a business worth over $100 billion
His book is “Good Profit: How creating value for others built one of the world’s most successful companies.” Koch defines “good profit” as “profit that results from creating value for customers — as the customers themselves define value.” Read the review in the Wall Street Journal here.
Fighting Jihad in a politically correct comic book world
Tales from the comic book infidel underground.
by Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.
If someone actually set out to reinvent the superhero, to make him relevant to the world we live in today and to give him the emotional investment of classic comics, he would have to be shut out of the marketplace in self-defense. And that’s exactly what happened to Bosch Fawstin over The Infidel….
Fawstin’s work is up there with the best of them and The Infidel #3 is a gut punch whose art and writing remain compelling up until the end. It’s a great comic, but it’s also a great assault on Islamic terrorism and on its American appeasers and collaborators.
The Infidel is the only truly relevant post 9/11 comic. Look at part of it here.
New Objectivist Facebook group, A R Group
This is an Ayn Rand (Objectivism) discussion group for those learning about Objectivism who want or need support in their journey. All questions are welcome and those of us with more knowledge will do our best to help or provide some resources. Above all let’s have fun while we plot to take over the world. Some interesting items show up here.
The Debt Dialogues: Jared Meyer on Uber, by Don Watkins
This weekly Ayn Rand Institute podcast educates young people about the welfare state and how it affects their future. Jared’s a Manhattan Institute fellow. Uber, the ride-sharing company, is creating opportunity for drivers and passengers. Uber can teach us how to fight for limited government, here.
Uber is basically an Objectivist LARP, and the results are awesome.
LARP is live-action role playing. This is a quote from the site The Federalist, in the article “The Free Market: It’s like Uber, but for everything” by Robert Tracinski. It begins: If it sometimes seems like it’s impossible to restore the free market, as if every new wave of government regulation is irreversible, then consider that one form of regulation, which is common in the most dogmatically big-government enclaves in the country, is being pretty much completely dismantled before our eyes. And it’s the hippest thing ever. Read it here.
Federal Reserve on Trial, how it created crises, by John Allison
John Allison in this debate about the Federal Reserve and its role in our economy at FreedomFest, the annual libertarian conference this summer. John was Cato’s president until April 2015. He describes how the Federal Reserve created much of the crises of 2008. You can watch him here, beginning at 18 minutes and 18 seconds and ending at 30 minutes and 30 seconds.
What’s Different about Monetary Policy? by Keith Weiner
Many people agree that it’s important to move to a free market in money (i.e. the gold standard). They also say that it’s just as important to fight bad taxes and regulation. In their view, government interference in the economy is like friction in a car. The more friction you add, the slower the car goes. One source of friction is much the same as any other.
Let me explain why it doesn’t quite work that way, using a few examples. Read it all here.
When Progressive Policies Cause Creative Destruction
by Benjamin Weingarten in The Federalist: He examines the collision course we are on between technological advancement/automation and progressive policies that are ironically causing technological advancement/automation to accelerate, low-skill progressive voters be damned. Note that the world did not collapse when automobiles replaced horse-drawn carriages. Read it here.
Irwin Schiff dies, a patriot’s life-long love of founding principles
Tribute from his son Peter [financial analyst], recounts how badly his father was treated in prison, which the NY Times didn’t mention. He’d served 13 years of his sentence for tax crimes.
In 1976 his beliefs in free market economics, limited government and strict interpretation of the Constitution led him to write “The Biggest Con: How the government is fleecing you,” a blistering indictment of the post New Deal expansion of government.
The tribute, with over 500 comments, is here.
