SORT BY Relevancy
Following the Conservative Political Action Conference, everyone is prescribing different paths to victory for the GOP. But what exactly is the surefire way to win, and who do they think is their best shot? On this episode of Rational Culture Elliot points out that once again, philosophy is the motive power of any culture, and conservatives and Republicans still have some housecleaning to do philosophically.
In the modern culture, the dollar sign ($) is used to indicate avarice, greed, obscene wealth. Cartoon characters, usually villains, have vaults filled to the brim with sacks of gold emblazened with '$'. Money has become a bad thing, a bad word. But what exactly is money? Is it the root of all evil, like so many have said? What about the *love* of money?
On this week's Rational Culture with Elliot Rivera, the history behind the sign of the dollar is examined and, using the famous speech made by Francisco D'Anconia in Atlas Shrugged, Elliot formulates a defense of money, the profit motive, capitalism - and the love of it all.
Is Obamacare actually a moral policy, or not? How do we judge its morality? What creed/ethics does it rest on, and why should we check its premises? On this episode, Elliot examines why Obamacare and other government intrusions into the private sector are not just ineffectual, but immoral.
A culture is the summation of the intellectual achievements of men and women who live and work together closely. So if the culture is in decline, what does that say about our society's intellectuals? In this debut episode of Rational Culture with Elliot Rivera, Elliot uses Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism to serve as our armor in the battle against the destruction of the truly unique American culture from its political, intellectual and artistic establishments.
One of the most over-used phrases recently is "Check your privilege", as in, "Check your white privilege" before making statements about other peoples' races, cultures, sexualities, etc. But as Elliot points out in this week's episode, the "white privilege" meme is nothing more than yet another assault on Man's rational faculty by attempting to delegitimize one of its most crucial functions: judgment. Collectivists seek to eliminate judgment in the hopes that they can evade the objective recognition of their evil ideology. Tune in at 3:00 pm ET for Elliot's defense of judgment.
In the modern culture, "discrimination" is considered to be a bad thing. It's become synonymous with "prejudice" and "ignorance". But what exactly is discrimination - is it an act of bigotry or a necessary epistemological occurence? On this episode of Rational Culture Elliot explores the necessity of discrimination and how we all, in our own way, discriminate on a daily basis on many different grounds.
Between Eich's forced resignation and countless violations of people's rights, when do the bullied become the bullies? What makes them tick? On this episode of Rational Culture, we examine the continuing encroachment onto individual liberties by the very people who once championed them. From Mozilla to Colorado, how have we come to this point?
What, exactly, are rights? We've been hearing a lot about rights this past week, particularly with Hobby Lobby and its fight against the encroachment of government. Unfortunately, lots of people - on BOTH sides of the issue - have a faulty idea of what "rights" are. On this episode of Rational Culture, we break down the concept of rights and take it down to its roots: man's basic nature and his requirements for life.
Is privacy something we should no longer count on? Or is it supposed to be taken for granted? On this episode of Rational Culture it's our long-awaited discussion on privacy.
Following the showdown in Nevada over the Bundy Ranch, many people are starting to get somewhat trigger-happy for a revolution against the government. But when is it actually time to fight back? When should we continue to follow the Rule of Law, and when should we start acting in our rational self-interest should the Rule of Law continue to encroach on our lives? On this episode of Rational Culture we'll discuss why the Bundy Ranch saga is not the hill for liberty-lovers to die on - and what hypothetical situation would actually warrant our standing up against the government.
