  • The Des Moines Objectivism Group

     Others should join this group in order to be around people who take ideas seriously and are willing to discuss philosophy in a way that they can't with most peers. The group is polite and welcoming of newcomers.

     We have been meeting regularly for over three years now. We have evolved and matured during that time, and we are still making improvements. Most times, we try to choose a topic in advance and assign someone to guide or facilitate part of the discussion. I think we do a good job of striking a balance; we have focused conversations that still allow ample room for freewheeling questions. I find DMOG to be both an inspiration and a reality-check.

     You will learn something new.

     Yaron Brook knows, and I agree, that Objectivism is the philosophy needed to put our country back on track toward become a Captialist, pro-Individualist country again. The Founding fathers were lacking only one thing - the justification of why Capitalism is the only moral economic philosophy and the justification for egoism as opposed to altruism. It's just a matter of time before that will be understood because the info is out there, America is awake, and we just need to educate ourselves and each other on the philosophy needed to provide a foundation for freedom. Besides, it is very rewarding to talk with people who share your values and your interests.

     It's great to meet and share thoughts about Objectivist philosophy with like-minded individuals. The discussion is always lively and interesting, and more than likely you'll learn a thing or two about history, economics, politics, anthropology, etc. etc. along the way.

     I'd love to see discussions between meetups, is there somewhere on this site, or somewhere else already establsihed that we could do that?
