Reason as the Leading Motive

Objectivist Carnival!

Posted by Jerry on September 20, 2007

For my non-Objectivist readers (and everyone else), I am hosting the Objectivist Carnival on my blog this week! :)

The Objectivist carnival is a round-up of original posts on any topic from Objectivist bloggers. While posts from non-Objectivist authors (this includes Libertarians) are not accepted, *all* are obviously welcome and encouraged to surf the bloggers below, read their posts, and link to them liberally! The carnival is published every Thursday on a hosting Objectivist blogger’s site.  

Thanks to Rational Jenn for guiding me on this completely new process of hosting the carnival this week. We have a good number of posts from Objectivist bloggers here:

The September 20, 2007 edition of Objectivist round up.

CORGIGUY presents LOSING MY RELIGION – R.E.M posted at CORGIGUY, saying, “Here’s a post i did about existential crisis and the song Loosing my religion”

Myrhaf presents Ironic Provincialism posted at Myrhaf.

Darren Cauthon presents A Net in Neutral? posted at Darren Cauthon, saying, “I don’t know if this subject matter is what this round-up is about, but if you’re looking for posts by Objectivists I guess this counts. :)” 

Kendall Justiniano presents EU to Microsoft: “You’re too good” posted at The Crucible & Column, saying, “Post on the injustice of the recent upholding of anti-trust judgments against Microsoft.”

John Drake presents Popular misconceptions posted at Try Reason!, saying, “A comment on an interview with Founder’s College CEO Fuller”

Rational Jenn presents Some NCLB Info posted at Rational Jenn, saying, “There is new language in the draft of NCLB that suggests, among other things, that schools help parents monitor television viewing in their homes. Naturally that means schools (and the government) would then be monitoring the parents.”

Diana Hsieh presents Colin McGinn on Egoism posted at NoodleFood, saying, “Philosopher Colin McGinn claims to refute egoism with a quick argument. I strenuously disagree.”

Marc and Angel presents Abortion: There are Two Sides to Every Story posted at Marc and Angel, saying, “Abortion is one of the touchiest subjects of our time primarily due to widely varying beliefs concerning the exact moment at which “life” actually begins. My best friend once told me, “There are two sides to every story.”

And finally, my own submission to the carnival was already published on my site earlier, but I include it in this round-up for its timeliness in the context of recent debates on how egoists would approach a hypothetical moral dilemma:

Ergo presents Moral Dilemmas posted at Leitmotif, saying, “How does Objectivism approach hypothetical moral dilemmas?”

That concludes this edition. All Objectivist readers, submit your blog article to the next edition of Objectivist round up using this carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on the blog carnival index page.
