From Jeff Olstad
What do Taboo’s have to do with Objectivism? A lot.
If you think about it, there are many subjects people avoid. Subjects that go to the core of our being. Subjects almost everyone is uncomfortable talking about. What are the components of fear? Socialism is a failure, let’s purge it from our lives? The phenomenon of Failure? To name just a few.
We will have to discuss these things at some point if we want to progress. I have been giving some thought to restrictions of government power, what should they be? I think it should written in the first or second paragraph that the Individual citizens of the realm have the Right to reject Bullshit. (If a smoother word is discovered it can be considered) I don’t mean off the cuff, some proof would be reasonable. It would be good because right now any “Expert” on the planet can say whatever pops into their head and it is “fact”. It is going to take a lot of shoveling to clean the “facts” out of that barn.
In the movie “on golden pond”, Henry Fonda said, You like that word, Bullshit” The boy says Ya” Henry says, It’s a good word”.
