We were excited to learn that this is a thing that exists in the world: An online dating site called "The Atlasphere," which is dedicated to "connecting admirers ofThe Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. " Admirers, because a great thinker does not have mere "fans." So of course, we registered and got ourselves a clever username ("Galt Trip") and went looking for the wackiest, most completely out-there profiles we could find, and boy, were we ever surprised to find out that...Objectivists trying to attract a romantic partner are INCREDIBLY BORING.
Great, now I have &quot;I&#039;m a gnu, how do you do?&quot; stuck in my head.
Hey, at 65, there&#039;s times when seven years ago seems like &quot;recently&quot;.
I would think that giving someone else an orgasm would very unlike a Randian.
All this is true, and yet, despite it all, most sois-disant &quot;Objectivists&quot; are <em>still</em> not rational, in that their attempts at logic contain leaps that are, to put it mildly, unreasonable.
Objectivist <strike>wink</strike> wank.
(Just being rational, here)
did you hear about the libertarian that walked into a bar and bought everyone a round?
and attending Rush concerts
sadly, I see it too
&quot;Hate: altruism ... &quot; So, yeah.
they&#039;d never get the ball inbounds since none of them would pass it to a teammate
I see it, and not at a distance. Then again, a glasspusher&#039;s idea of &quot;at a distance&quot; is probably a bit off the curve.
Oh, you can be all that, easily. Expecting someone to want to date you, on the other hand, seems quite ... irrational.
worse yet, I&#039;m that way all the time anymore. Even my flashbacks have flashbacks...
I wonder how many of these people cross post at <a href="http://survivalistsingles.com" target="_blank">http://survivalistsingles.com</a>?
The most closely-reasoned and cogently articulated expression of libertarian philosophy I&#039;ve seen in some time.
&quot;I hate altruism&quot;
