Yes, I Get to Judge You as Abusive. No, I’m Not a Hypocrite

I’ve been in this conversation countless times now. I’ve had it both with Objectivists and the religious. I call them out on their abuse. Against the religious, I called out the church once for their beheadings, witch hunts, domestic violence, pedophilia, etc. I was told by a man that I was merely “virtue signaling.” He …

Objectivism’s Abuse Problem

If you are here because Objectivists have abused you, my argument is that this domineering view of the mind that they have, in which the mind overwrites natural emotions, naturally leads to narcissistic abuse. Why would a person’s authentic feelings be given respect when those feely feelings can be all wrong and the ever-so-rational person …

One Question for Objectivists

One Question for Objectivists When I bring up my challenge to Objectivism, I am always simply buried by them. I get told I am a mystic, a “Kantian epistemologist” (a true insult in Objectivst circles); I get called “sweetie,” “honey,” etc. Or I get told “no Objectivist cares about tabula rasa anyway.” Oh. We’re not …

My Goal isn’t to Sell You. It’s to Stop You.

Consistently, when I show up in Objectivist circles, they tell me how to go about myself. They tell me I have to “sell” them on my way of being rather than theirs. By default, they are right. To penetrate it, I have to disprove them. Do you see the dumb in this? Anyway. I find …

When Reason is Tied to Morality, It Becomes Moralizing

Reason = Moralizing I challenge Ayn Rand’s Objectivism. I am the victim of many hysterical accusations: I am a mystic, I have “no studies,” I “can’t use words right,” and I must have been dumped by an Objectivist male. When it becomes clear that my argument is airtight; that the obfuscations of my argument don’t …

Accusations of “Mysticism” are Hauntingly Similar to Accusations of “Witchcraft”

I challenge Ayn Rand’s Objectivism. My main challenge revolves around Objectivism’s treatment of emotions. Rand says your emotional mechanism is like a computer you have to program. I say it is not. I say your emotional mechanism is prewired and you cannot overwrite this programming. This is about the extent of what I say. I …

Refuting Objectivism is a Bit Like Refuting Communism

If I were to ask you how communism was defeated as an ideology, what would you say? I bet it has less to do with any of its pros or cons, merits, writings, or sales pitches. I bet it has to do with how dense the followers were: communism would work, darn it, if people …

Virtue Signaling: Masks are the New Jesus

If you are a complete shit bag but want to feel good about yourself, what can you do? Easy! Become a Christian. They have no moral standards whatsoever. There is one and only one: “Do you accept Jesus as your lord and savior?” Yes-you go to heaven. No-well, you’re own your own. They can send …

When Humans Figured Out Paternity, Eugenics and Patriarchy Started

This will take you to another site, one in which I write for the liberalization of sexual attitudes. When Humans Figured Out Paternity, Eugenics and Patriarchy Started Before humans could identify paternity, humans were not monogamous and did not live in families. Women did most work, gathering or farming, and naturally had leadership roles. When …

Every Conversation with Narcissistic Objectivists: They Punch, You Must Play Nice

It’s every conversation I have with Objectivist men. Well, and women, too, often. They insist you play nice, never insult anyone–but they can do it all day long. Let’ say they say women are parasites or the like, agreeing with the Ayn Rand quote below. I call them a male chauvinist POS. They then cry …
