ObjectiveAnalyst, a master machinist and tool and die maker, entrepreneur, student of philosophy, and much more takes a break to share with us his favorite Ayn Rand quote as well as a passion project we should all be working on.

*Favorite Ayn Rand book:
Don’t make me choose! However, if I could only keep one, it would have to be “Atlas Shrugged”, because of the overall encompassing philosophy as well as the entertainment value.

*Favorite Ayn Rand character:
Hank Rearden - only because I can relate so well.

Q & A

*When were you first introduced to Ayn Rand?
About three decades ago, there was a radio talk show host in the Detroit market named Mark Scott (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Scott_...)) and he introduced me to her work. After reading “Atlas Shrugged”, I read “Philosophy: Who Needs It”, and it started my journey into philosophy and a larger world.

*How has Ayn Rand influenced your life?
She introduced me to a philosophy that said what I was thinking and reinforced my convictions while providing me with arguments most difficult to contradict.

*What passion project are you working on right now?
I am still working on my mind. I do not expect to be the smartest guy in the room, but my goal is to be a wise man. I am passionate about philosophy. Actually I have many other passions, and creating music/playing guitar is a wonderful passion that puts my mind at ease when I need it the most.

*How did you hear about Galt’s Gulch Online?
I can’t remember exactly when I heard about the first movie actually going into production, but that is when I first searched for info and found the first promo site. I have moved along with each succeeding site since.

K’s Q & A

*What are you wearing to the Atlas Shrugged III premiere?
Well, I am usually pretty casual. The ladies always say I clean up very nicely when I wear a suit and tie, but I will probably were a nice cotton shirt with a collar, a pair of slacks and black patent leather shoes.

*What is the one phrase Ayn Rand wrote that stopped you in your tracks?
A phrase…usually this is not a complete sentence containing both subject and verb. If it pleases, allow me to offer one of my favorite quotes:

“It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.” - Ayn Rand

*If you could be the tycoon of an industry, which industry would you pick?
At this point, I believe I would like to be the head of a major media outlet since there seems to be such a need to reign in the political class, and I like to spout off about my views.

*What do you pack in a sack lunch?
Pastrami on rye with a nice big kosher pickle.

*Favorite current song?
Current…contemporary…impossible to decide. I am mostly old school rock & roll and love ballads, but if I must choose it would be something from OneRepublic. How about this one: Good Life (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZhQOvvV4...). Darn! I hate to choose just one.

*Pretzels or chips?
Chips. Bet you can’t eat just one!

*Crab or shrimp?
Alaskan king crab with drawn butter…mmmm, good.
