Objectivist Round-Up

Welcome to the February 16th, 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:


Burgess Laughlin presents BkRev: The Routledge Companion to Postmodernism posted at The Main Event, saying, "Studying postmodernism is difficult for two major reasons. First, postmodernism is an ideology that rejects ideology and other large-scale integrations; students of the subject therefore have trouble 'connecting the dots'. Second, some of postmodernism's most influential leaders write in a style based on the assumption that words, concepts, and reality do not connect. Stuart Sim's The Routledge Companion to Postmodernism largely overcomes those difficulties."

Darius Cooper presents Labor Turnover posted at Practice Good Theory, saying, "I provide a benchmark against which to evaluate weekly and monthly reports about jobs."

C.W. presents A Note on Greek Banks Recapitalization posted at Krazy Economy, saying, "The fate of the Greek Banks is to become the property of the swindler. A tale of modern economics."

Rational Jenn presents A Recent Perfectionism Monster Smack Down posted at Rational Jenn, saying, "This is a story of a creative way to handle an unwanted bout of perfectionism."

Rational Jenn presents ATLOSCon Update posted at Rational Jenn, saying, "Check it out! ATLOSCon 2012 has a Facebook page!"

Jason Stotts presents Erosophia posted at Erosophia, saying, "Valentine's Day is much more than a "Hallmark Holiday.""

Jared Rhoads presents Concierge physicians now being targeted by regulators posted at The Center for Objective Health Policy, saying, "Concierge physicians have been left mostly free to run their practices, but now some states are starting to regulate them as insurance companies. Oregon is the most recent example."

Ari Armstrong presents A Few Thoughts about Volunteer Search and Rescue posted at Free Colorado, saying, "If you find yourself in a search and rescue (or recovery) effort, here are a few things to keep in mind."

Diana Hsieh presents How to Make Bacon in the Oven posted at NoodleFood, saying, "Here are my instructions for making bacon in a glass pan in the oven... which is an easy way to make lots of perfectly-cooked bacon with little mess."

Edward Cline presents The Sneers and Smears of IPS posted at The Rule of Reason, saying, "The Institute for Policy Studies has never tried to disguise its invective and malice for any person, group or idea it deems an obstruction to the progress of Progressivism."
