Someday I'm going to have to write something about how I first got into Objectivism. When I was in college, I actually bought Atlas Shrugged, just because the title so tickled me. But I never got into it. It wasn't that I wasn't into deep thoughts at the time, but when I read novels, I expected mind-candy. Atlas Shrugged is nothing of the sort.
I was also of the opinion that Philosophy didn't qualify as a field of knowledge at all, and that it was appalling that you could actually major in the stuff. I haven't really changed my mind about that. It was just that every school of philosophy I'd ever run into was so patently childish and nonsensical on the fact of it that I didn't see any reason to look any farther.
Maybe you're like I was. Or maybe you've heard things about Objectivism or about Ayn Rand that bothered you, or have met Objectivists in the past who were incredibly obnoxious. In any case, take a look and see if you like what I have here. If you want something that won't insult your intelligence, you're in the right place
