NEW IDEAL LIVE – The Sorry Legacy of Our Policy Toward Iran

On August 12, author Salman Rushdie, who’s had an Iranian fatwa against him for over 30 years, was brutally stabbed during an event in New York. Last month, Masih Alinejad, a journalist and activist persecuted by the Iranian regime, was saved from an assassin lurking outside her house, also in New York—a year after a kidnapping attempt against her was foiled. Threats against John Bolton and other U.S. officials have also recently been prevented. What explains Iran’s targeting of individuals for assassination, even on U.S soil? How should the U.S. in particular, and the West in general, act towards Iran? What is the philosophical nature of the Iranian regime? Join Onkar Ghate, Nikos Sotirakopoulos and Agustina Vergara Cid to discuss the implications of recent and historical attacks and the philosophical principles needed to effectively oppose the regime and Islamic totalitarianism.

AYN RAND INSTITUTE MONTHLY MEMBER ROUNDTABLE: A Nuclear Startup: Q&A with Thomas Eiden

This online event is exclusively for Ayn Rand Institute Members. Thomas Eiden is the founder and CEO of a startup taking on a “looming crisis.” The consumption of life-saving medical radioisotopes in the U.S. outstrips domestic production. Eiden’s company, Atomic Alchemy, aims to become the world’s most reliable supplier of radioisotopes for medical, research, exploration and industrial use. In layman’s terms, what are radioisotopes? How are they produced? What limits their supply? What will it take to remedy this problem?

Ben Bayer

How Covid Exposed a Moral Sickness – And Almost Everyone Is Infected

AIER’s Bastiat Society program in Nashville will host an in-person event with Ben Bayer, Fellow and Director of Content at the Ayn Rand Institute. During the Covid pandemic, people on the political left generally favored stricter pandemic controls (lockdowns, mask and vaccine mandates, etc.) and other statist economic measures in the name of the public good and usually criticized their opponents as “selfish.” The evidence suggests their policy decisions were not driven by any corruption or conspiracy, but by the moral values they openly championed. Importantly, this doesn’t mean their policies were justified or excusable. If those policies were unjust and destructive, it’s a sign that there is something flawed about the moral values that actually motivated them: the values of selfless sacrifice that are regarded as commonplace on both the left and right. This talk will explore how the Covid pandemic put pressure on American politicians, left and right, to reveal their true core values, what it really means to act on those values, the fundamental problems with these values, and a rational alternative.
