The Atlas Society has been promoting Open Objectivism for the past 25 years. Their website ( describes the concept of Open Objectivism as:

“Objectivism is not a religion with teachings defined by a sacred text like the Bible or Qur’an. Our loyalty is not to Rand’s words but to the truth of her fundamental insights. A commitment to truth and respect for independent thought must lead onward to new questions, new answers. Our scholars have produced insights in Objectivist philosophy, from the virtue of benevolence to the nature of knowledge, and more needs to be done.”

The annual “Atlas Summit” is just one of the many ways the Atlas Society works to engage the public with the ideas of Ayn Rand.

    Unlike some, I love Vegas and look for any excuse to go. Used to live there back in the late 70's and have been back about 35-40 times since. Was just there over the holidays and look forward to going as I have not been to one of the Fests yet. I just registered and look forward to meeting all who are going. Plenty of hotels close by that are a little cheaper for those on a budget. I booked at the Super 8 right behind Planet Hollywood on Koval Lane, so close enough for me and it is half the cost of PH. I will have my truck there, so can get around town and visit with friends or go to other casinos and shows during down time. Plus monorail is right there also. If you want luxury, Bellagio, Aria, The Cosmo and the Vdara are right across the street and it is right next door to Paris and Bally's to the north. Vegas is the best escape and you can find anything to fit your budget and lifestyle.

    Perhaps one topic might be forming a viable coalition of the splinter groups or how to get out of the sand box and into long pants.
