Objectivism and today's Issues

Our perspectives on issues of the day are based on the principles of a free society: genuine laissez-faire capitalism, its moral foundations, its life-promoting consequences, and the pro-reason culture that makes it possible.

Today's Issues

  • Objectivism is a philosophical movement: since politics is a branch of philosophy, Objectivism advocates certain political principles — specifically, those of laissez-faire capitalism — as the consequence and the ultimate practical application of its fundamental philosophical principles. It does not regard politics as a separate or primary goal, that is: as a goal that can be achieved without a wider ideological context.
