I have thought about releasing a series of short video clips of me addressing various modern topics in the framework of Objectivist/Libertarian, etc. philosophy. Thing is...I'd have to hide my identity. For obvious reasons. Not sure if it's possible to do...

    There is too much crap in the information available and readily consumed these days. I can see it on radio and tv. I'm inspired and entertained by the podcasts I choose to listen to. The most recent being "Free Man Beyond the Wall".

    When I see horrible contradictions and real bull*&t reasoning being broadcast it pains me. I'm more and more Galt as time goes on. This would be like a last salvo.

    We do need some clever way to introduce Objectivism as true freedm, to the young who will never get it in school, or even college. I really sick of Objectivism being misinterpreted, as they did in "Dirty Dancing.Liberals tend to read something, don't have a clue, and spin their own meaning onto it. Did the same with Wordsworth in "Splendor in the Grass", just Hollywood shwoing their ignorance, and young people falling for it. Most of the YouTube and Facebook posts are deleted if they do not carry the Harris agenda, however. I would say post or contribute to conservative or more mildle of the road sites if you want it to stay on.

      Forgot to add, Vette guy, I am a Vette gal, 2002. It was my salvation during the supposed shut down. When they told us to shelter insiie, I took off in the Vette, either drove and felt free, or went shopping wherever was open, maskless, and was happy and fine for 4 month. Unti Comrade DeWine listened to Dr. Amy, and said we had to be more like China, and mandated masks! Bad decision on is part.

      I have been thinking of sending a copy of 'Atlas Shrugged' (or maybe 'Anthem' - it's shorter) to every high schooler I get a graduation invite from. Biggest problem is that I think few of them have the attention span to read it. Or even watch the movie series. With the 'education' that some of them are getting, I am not sure they would understand even after reading it.

        Start even younger. Our daughter read "Anthem" at 10, an upon finishing the last page, looked up and said, "Now I see what they are doing to us in school!" The next year, I bought copies of "Anthem", "Brave New World" and Bastiat's "The Law", which she had read by then. I told her I would give copiss of any of all to her classmates who wanted them. I got several takers, some even began to see that the pseudo counselor (teacher who had taken one counseling class, was trying to do to them when she took over each class in that grade once a week, to do Group hypnosis, subliminal tapes, or Maslow group therapy, which Maslow himself called "dangerous" outside a therapist's office! They will go to any extremes to brainwash our kids or put them in cognitive dissonance. By high school, they are far along in the process.

        I’m impressed with the sentiment and the reply. At the risk of heresy-J I have been thinking of a “Readers Digest” version of Atlas Shrugged. We could use it as a tool for conversions. My reasoning is very similar to your concern. I sign off all of my emails with:
        Who Is John Galt?
        When someone bounces back with an inquiry as to who is John Galt I am very happy to reply with a quick explanation and invitation for further discussion. I have purchased many copies of AS to hand out.
        And here’s the rub. Few want to spend weeks reading 1200 pages.
        We do and we have -but I’m trying to get the most fastest conversions. Yes Anthem is shorter. The Fountainhead is spot on.....but AS is THE message. Like I said at the risk of heresy I would really like a shorter version.
        I was thinking of my religious friends who want to convert the world. They start with small tracts to keep interest. The don’t drop the whole bible on them and tell them they have a week to read it and be prepared to live it. It takes some commitment to read AS. I have loaned a few friends my 3 dvd of the movie. Helps a little.
        Outside of the trustees of AR estate approving of such a work could this idea ever get traction?
        While I have your attention.....look at these crazies. Why can’t TERM LIMITS get large consideration.

    Use Rumble instead and place a link on Parler. We all want to see your thoughts.
    I'd love to see pictures of liberals being shown on the screen as you make staunch conservative views!

    It would be awful nice to have someone express Objectivist/Libertarian views that can not be asserted are anarchy. Libertarians get attacked and demeaned on Quora regularly. It doesn't take much to address the attacks, but people have obviously been programmed that Libertarians are simply out to keep their money and screw others.
