Objectivist Round-Up

Welcome to the January 12th, 2012 edition of the Objectivist Round-Up. This week presents insight and analyses written by authors who are animated by Objectivism, the philosophy of Ayn Rand. According to Ayn Rand:

My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.

"About the Author," Atlas Shrugged, Appendix.

So without any further delay (and in no particular order), here's this week's round-up:

Keith Weiner presents Inflation: an Expansion of Counterfeit Credit posted at keithweiner's posterous, saying, "One of the most important topics of our era, and the proper concept of "inflation"."
Joseph Kellard presents Book Review: Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson posted at The American Individualist, saying, "My review of Walter Isaacson’s biography on Steve Jobs."

Diana Hsieh presents Video: Tenacity in Pursuit of Goals posted at NoodleFood, saying, "In Sunday's webcast, I discussed how to be tenacious in pursuit of your goals. Check out the video!"

Darius Cooper presents US "Entitlement" programs - Impact on debt posted at Practice Good Theory, saying, "I examine Federal liabilities for Social Security and Medicare."

Edward Cline presents Rivals for Your Life: Religious Conservatives vs. Islam posted at The Rule of Reason, saying, "Conflicts between mere beliefs – beliefs without evidence of what is believed, beliefs based on the unknowable, beliefs based on the whim or emotion that “I just want it to be so” – have led and will continue to lead to horrific warfare in which force determines the victor and the outcome without really settling the question of whose God was greater."

Paul Hsieh presents The Truth About RomneyCare posted at We Stand FIRM, saying, "My latest PJMedia OpEd rebuts Romney's deceptive claim that his Massachusetts health plan didn't impose price controls. And what similar price controls under ObamaCare will mean for residents of the other 49 states."

Santiago and Kelly Valenzuela presents Movie Recommendation - The Artist posted at Mother of Exiles, saying, "My brief comments about a wonderful new movie and a link to the trailer."

Kelly Elmore presents Reepicheep's Coracle: Things I Learned on My Travels Aside from the Order of Succession of the Monarchy posted at Reepicheep's Coracle, saying, "This post is a tongue-in-cheek catalog of lessons learned traveling in England, from the value of solo-travel to the uselessness of hotel reviews to complaints about spousal train negotiation."

John Drake presents Tenacity in Goal Pursuit posted at Try Reason!, saying, "Diana Hsieh's excellent Philosoph in Action video about tenacity in the pursuit of goals inspired me with some futher observations. See the video, read my comments, and get cracking on those goals!"

Jenn Casey presents Progress on my Goals posted at Rational Jenn, saying, "Off to a great start in 2012!"
