Objectivist Round Up - May 10, 2012

Welcome to the May 10, 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:

Josh Windham presents The Conservative War on Sex | The Undercurrent posted at The Undercurrent, saying, "Josh Windham weighs in on one of the profoundly anti-life positions of the religious right."

Josh Windham presents Hate Crimes Legislation Unmasks Blind Justice | The Undercurrent posted at The Undercurrent, saying, "An argument in favor of objective law and against the "hate crime" classification."

Josh Windham presents All Entrepreneurs are “Social” Entrepreneurs | The Undercurrent posted at The Undercurrent, saying, "An exploration of the newfangled concept "social entrepreneurism.""

Edward Cline presents The Peril of "Hate Crimes" posted at The Rule of Reason, saying, "A totalitarian anti-concept of "justice" has been gnawing away at objective law without correction or opposition, and making rapid progress in a judicial system that has steadily abandoned reason and the protection of individual rights: hate crime" 

Paul Hsieh presents Linking Licensure to Mandatory Service posted at We Stand FIRM, saying, "A new way for the government to extort "free" labor from lawyers. Will doctors be next?"

John Drake presents 5 year goals update posted at Try Reason!, saying, "An update on my 5 year goals. Why should you care? To see intergration in action."

Diana Hsieh presents ATLOSCon 2012 posted at Philosophy in Action, saying, "I'm excited to be speaking on "Forgiveness, Redemption, and the Virtue of Justice" at ATLOSCon this year!"

Darius Cooper presents The men who caused the Great Recession posted at Practice Good Theory, saying, "Look who were supposed to save the world.
