One of the sideshows in the circus that is New Zealand politics at the moment is "Paintgate" - the Prime Minister's art forgeries. Helen Clark put her signature on paintings done by others - in some cases members of her staff - for charities who would auction them as the Prime Minister's very own handiwork. Now, the police are investigating her for fraud. (Read more...)

What is Objectivism?
by Lindsay Perigo
Sanctions: 2 Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
Ayn Rand herself, relative to other philosophers, didn't write "volumes." In terms of quality & import, however, she out-wrote most of them combined & multiplied. Some philosophers (not many) had argued discretely for one or more of the above; she integrated ALL of it & brought esthetics into the mix as well. She argued that facts are facts; that reality is what it is, independent of our feelings or wishes; that human reason is able to grasp what it is; that reason's tools - sense-perception, concept-formation & logic - are, contrary to many philosophers, valid; that these facts have irresistible & demonstrable implications for ethics, politics, economics & art: they enjoin rational self-interest, individual liberty, capitalism & what she called "romantic realism" as part of "man's proper estate" - an "upright posture."

Flirting with Friedrich

To answer the question, was Nietzsche an individualist?, it is necessary first of all to remind ourselves what individualism is. It is the doctrine that the individual is an end in himself, not a means to the ends of others; that he is sovereign over his own life, and may be constrained only when he threatens the sovereignty of someone else. It is the view that one should live by one's own judgement and respect the right of others to do the same. It upholds the paramountcy of the individual over the group it treats the individual and his rights as the starting point in all issues. (Read more...)

An interview by me of Lindsay Perigo could possibly have been a cantankerous affair. It would be hard to imagine two people more dissimilar politically. Perigo believes in individualism and capitalism, and is an advocate of Ayn Rand's theory of Objectivism; whereas I am known for my socialism. (Read more...)

But help is at hand The Contested Legacy of Ayn Rand, above caveats notwithstanding, offers many invaluable, powerful, historically significant lamp-lights & warning signs along the way. Incontestably, it will be a proud part of the legacy of David Kelley. (Read more...)
