Recently, an acquaintance and I were busy discussing Ayn Rand Theories, and it seems that they had examine a few 7-books on the topic at the same time as they had been nevertheless a teen. That’s stunning due to the fact Ayn Rand’s philosophies are quite a soar from the regular stuff they train teens in school. After reading over one of the biography pages on certainly one of my web sites they said to me; You must be living proof of Ayn Rand’s theories.
Interestingly enough, yes, I am keen on Ayn Rand and I personal most all of her books and belong to the Ayn Rand Institute. I often feel like one of her characters in both Fountain Head or Atlas Shrugged. My acquaintance mentions the “The Virtue of Selfishness” but, I do now not recognise if I very own that specific e-book – maybe I do someplace round right here?
You see, I agree with that (selfishness) is in characteristics of philosophy component why capitalism works so properly, as it takes into attention the human innate traits of the species. Namely; if you want some thing or greater, then you need to produce extra, both in labor or in a commercial enterprise offering items and services to others with the intention to get the gadgets of trade you need to get the belongings you want. Indeed, I am perfectly okay with that theory of economics in that regard.
Now then, the human innate traits to assist others seems to reason a positive splashing of chemical compounds in the mind, which one could argue is a selfish need – whether or not or not it’s a mother for a child, or an person to empathize with a stranger – and act on the ones emotional needs. Thus, her theories do also satisfy what people may call the egocentric gene which is busy protecting as a “non-egocentric gene” – and yes, I too have to believe that there may be a mixture happening, but then philosophically talking one could argue she’s right, best folks do not surely understand precisely what she is pronouncing, in that regard. See that factor?
Ayn Rand has honestly been demonized at the “objectivism” the front. I am extra a follower of her monetary theories, and I see why Chairman Greenspan of the Federal Reserve became additionally partial to hers. The Communists and Socialists can not stand her. In watching her old video interviews as she gave speeches to Congress, I ought to see her general despise of communism, and I do not blame her for that, I do not want to stay in a beehive of humanity or a ant farm either!
As a non-religious person myself, I am ok with maximum of what she has stated, and whereas, so many attempt to attack her philosophy – I marvel if possibly they merely don’t understand what she is announcing. Perhaps, you will please consider all this.
