Welcome to Voices for Reason
[Note: This post will remain pinned to the front page to welcome first time visitors during our launch week. Scroll down for our most recent posts.]
Hello, I’m Debi Ghate, Vice President of Academic Programs. The team of ARC writers and I are excited that our new blog, “Voices for Reason” is now up and running. Visit us often as we’ll be sharing our take on today’s most pressing questions, and bringing other items of potential interest to our readers. It’s our goal to make VFR the go-to source for anyone interested in promoting and protecting individual rights, and for getting ARI’s unique perspective on the state of our culture. Every week day, we’ll be posting new commentary–on topics such as the financial crisis, environmentalism, foreign policy, free speech and property rights–commentary informed by Ayn Rand’s distinctive philosophical system, Objectivism. We’ll also be exploring what principled solutions Objectivism offers for tackling today’s political, economic and cultural problems.
As Ayn Rand wrote in 1971, “If one recognizes the supremacy of reason and applies it consistently, all the rest follows. Reason in epistemology leads to egoism in ethics, which leads to capitalism in politics.” The name of our blog was inspired by Ayn Rand’s statement; through this new medium, we will continue to be “voices for reason.”
Our writers are looking forward to getting your feedback. Enjoy your visit, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
