Objectivist Round-Up

Welcome to the March 1st, 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:

Nicholas Marquiss presents “Ron Paul Lacks the Principles Needed to Defend Freedom” at The Undercurrent, saying: “In this piece written for The Undercurrent, Nicholas Marquiss highlights the failure of Ron Paul to truly grasp and defend individual rights.”

Jon Glatfelter presents “Do We Need Faith to Know Right From Wrong?” at The Undercurrent, saying “Is morality the process of adhering to divine edicts? In this Campus Media Response, Jon Glatfelter argues otherwise.”

Zak Szalewski presents "The Hypocrisy of Islamic States" at The Rational Extremist, saying: "I am an Objectivist and new to the blogging circle."

Jared Rhoads presents “Assorted thoughts on contraception, Bell, physicians, and more” at Center for Objective Health Policy, saying “Here are a few short thoughts and observations on recent events--some health-related and some not.”

Darius Cooper presents “Federal Debt Project” at Practice Good Theory, saying “I show how government debt is projected to grow.”
Ross England presents “Organ Donation: Check the ‘Selfish Bastard’ Box for Me Too” at Think Twice, saying “Some of my thoughts on the wisdom of having organ donor status on your driver’s license.”

Paul Hsieh presents “Free Market Lessons from Contraception Fight” at We Stand FIRM, saying “My latest at PJM discusses 3 lessons we should learn from the political fight over birth control.”
