    It's so true.
    "Think what we’re asking of nonlibertarians. All their lives they (and we) were taught that government is the source of social order. It’s easy to believe this because government is so visible. It’s got all those big buildings filled with bureaus and people doing things that they say are indispensable to social order."

    The premise here is that we should be teaching the concepts of freedom and liberty. It hurts me to say this, but I am beginning to question whether these truths that are self-evident to us and should be self-evident to everyone else really are self-evident. If they are self-evident, should not they be self-evident to everyone?

    Or should we just let people come to what we see as self-evident as a result of their own investigation?

    Several weeks ago a few of the Galt's Gulch Online admins asked some of us politely to become Gulch ambassadors. I do not feel comfortable with this role because I think that people have to come to Gulch values on their own. Is preaching the Good News of Objectivism (pun intended) a responsibility for an Objectivist?

    Granted, having more people of reason may be in our best interest. Certainly Galt and D'Anconia did their share of proselytizing. I am willing to learn from the wisdom of the Gulch.
