Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand was an American philosopher  alive from 1905-1982. She is the creator of objectivism, which is the belief  that…”holding that the universe is open to human achievement and happiness and that each person has within him the ability to live a rich, fulfilling, independent life.” Taking into consideration that each person has a limit to which that can be achieved. Objectivism holds that belief that we have free will but within certain boundaries. They define their reality as being only one, and this denies the existence of any supernatural being.

Rand writes more about her view of objectivism in her novel,  Atlas Shrugged. It was this book that her view of objectivism unraveled. The book talks about individualism, capitalism, and the advocacy of reason. She was an advocate for creative minds and had a passion to show the need for creatives in the world, so in her book she shows us what a world with out creatives would be.

“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.”

“Joy is the goal of existence, and joy is not to be stumbled upon, but to be achieved, and the act of treason is to let its vision drown in the swamp of the moment’s torture.”
