Better stay away from those
That carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose
Watch the plain clothes
You don't need a weather man
To know which way the wind blows.
Objectivism vs collectivism
So it looks like there is a new sheriff in town. Obama rolled over and the Tea Party stomped on the Moderate Republican Balls. Now I'm not sure that is a bad thing. Its been clear we need a good Colon Blow in Washington D.C. I thought Obama was the one to do it but perhaps he was just the spark that lit the fire. ( I thought about using Mrs. O,Leary's cow as a reference but who remembers that )
The interesting is that a lot of these Tea Party Patriots claim to be Objectivists in ideology and swear Alleghenies to Ayn Rand as their guide. per wikipedia
Objectivism is a philosophy defined by the Russian-American philosopher and novelist Ayn Rand (1905–1982). Objectivism holds that reality exists independent of consciousness, that human beings have direct contact with reality through sense perception, that one can attain objective knowledge from perception through the process of concept formation and inductive and deductive logic, that the proper moral purpose of one's life is the pursuit of one's own happiness or rational self-interest, that the only social system consistent with this morality is full respect for individual rights, embodied in laissez faire capitalism, and that the role of art in human life is to transform man's widest metaphysical ideas, by selective reproduction of reality, into a physical form—a work of art—that one can comprehend and to which he can respond emotionally.
Corporatism refers to a form of collectivism that views the whole as being greater than the sum of its individual parts, and gives priority to group rights over individual rights.
