Fall 2012Vol. 7, No. 3
Highlights the essential principles of Rand’s philosophy; compares them to the essentials of the predominant philosophies of the day, religion and subjectivism; relates each to the American ideal of individual rights and liberty; and shows why, if America is to make a comeback, Americans must embrace Rand’s ideas.
Surveys the history and tenets of religion and shows that religion, in every essential respect, is utterly at odds with the requirements of a rational, practical, life-serving morality.
Takes to task claims that religion was somehow responsible for the profound scientific advancements that animated the 16th and 17th centuries, and shows that the cause of these advancements was not religion or faith but the partial freeing of the mind from religious restrictions and the consequent use of observation and logic.
Mr. Levey discusses the U.S. presidential race and potential appointments to the Supreme Court.
Mr. Zubrin discusses the history and scourge of antihumanism.
