What is Objectivism?

Objectivism is the brainchild of the Russian-American novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand. Rand held that your life is your highest value, that the achievement of happiness is your highest moral purpose, and that reason is the only means to those ends. Objectivism is a moral and philosophical foundation for your ownership of and right to your life and the products of your mind. It is an all-encompassing philosophy which provides objective truths to the all aspects of life, including:

Politics: Capitalism as the only social system morally proper to man, under which government’s only purpose is to protect the individual rights of life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness

Economics: Laissez-Faire Capitalism, under which everyone earns and trades their own wealth by mutual consent to mutual benefit.

Ethics: A rationally chosen code of values with your own life as its standard, and your own happiness as its ultimate aim

Psychology: The rational programming of one’s own mind in order to achieve psychological unity

Art: Romantic Realism as the school of art which projects the image of man as he can be and should be

AMERICA: “The United States of America is the greatest, the noblest and, in its original founding principles, the only moral country in the history of the world.” ~ Ayn Rand in Philosophy: Who Needs It

“Your Life Belongs to You and the Good is to Live it” ~ Ayn Rand
“Happiness is the meaning and purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence” ~ Aristotle
