by meeting Bill V.F.
Religion, ethics, morality, possibility of personal happiness
life is short and pointless but it is a gift; try to do no harm; try to effect change for the good
Always interested in new learning to nuture my thinking skills and want to be exposed to ideas that can help me feel more liberated in my own life, and perhaps also give me a better understanding of conflict, and anger, and meanness in life.
We are continuing to study Ayn Rand and Objectivism, having started some discussion of John Galt's speech in Atlas Shrugged. We have decided to read the book from the beginning through Part I which is @300 pages. Having done that, our next meeting will then put us all on the same page, so to speak, for a more organized discussion of the book, and when we get to John Galt's speech which is virtually the end of the book, we will be better prepared to discuss the speech both in the context of the book's story-line and out of the context of the book as a philosophy on its own. My observation is that we remain absorbed by Ayn Rand, and our discussions are only getting better as time goes on.
