"There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism—by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide." - Ayn Rand

WATCH: #EnvyIsEvil

"...so inhuman an emotion that those who feel it seldom dare admit it even to themselves. ... That emotion is: hatred of the good for being the good," - Ayn Rand on envy.
envyIsEvil

The Atlas Society has released a new "Draw My Life" video featuring Envy, and we have to say, it's pretty creepy. What makes this video all the scarier is that it's true!

Watch the latest The Atlas Society video in Galt's Gulch.

Atlas Shrugged Newsletter: 10.14.17


"... Altruism declares that any action taken for the benefit of others is good, and any action taken for one's own benefit is evil. Thus the beneficiary of an action is the only criterion of moral value--and so long as that beneficiary is anybody other than oneself, anything goes."Ayn Rand

This... is John Aglialoro Speaking

John-2
”I want to explain to you why you are the most important person in the Universe…. and if you don’t think so… then you’ll never really get anywhere worth going… “ - John Aglialoro
Recently, Atlas Shrugged Movie Producer John Aglialoro was asked to give a speech to the Executive Forum Group of a local business. Always ready to further propagate the principles of Objectivism, he enthusiastically accepted.
While those lucky enough to be in attendance got to experience John’s passionate and infectious delivery first hand, the Gulch did manage to score a copy of his spectacular speech, “The Virtue of You First… an Ethical Basis,” with all of John's personal hand written notes in tact.

Click here to read John’s inspiring speech now.

Dr. David Kelley to Retire

It's true; at the end of 2017, Atlas Society founder and Chief Intellectual Officer, Dr. David Kelley, is retiring.
Dr. Kelley founded TAS in 1990 to help launch an independent branch of the Objectivist movement and to advance the philosophy.
As David has taught us all so much, Atlas Shrugged Part 3 Associate Producer, Scott DeSapio, takes a moment to tell the story of his first meeting with David and to celebrate some of his favorites of Dr. Kelley's work...

Explore Dr. David Kelley's work in the Gulch.

"Every assault on freedom has begun with an assault on reason and every assault on reason has begun by attacking man’s confidence that his mind, operating on the basis of sense perception, is capable of grasping reality objectively." - Dr. David Kelley

The Primacy of Existence

Just when you thought it was safe to assert that existence exists...
It's hard to imagine, but more and more people today see facts as being flexible, shifting based on our thoughts, fears, and feelings. Don't believe it? Just turn on the news tonight.
It's high time someone set them straight!
Enjoy this lecture by Dr. David Kelley on the "Primacy of Existence." Even though this recording is over 20 years old, it could not be more relevant today.

Atlas Shrugged Newsletter: 04.18.17

"In a fully free society, taxation - or, to be exact, payment for governmental services - would be voluntary. Since the proper services of a government - the police, the armed forces, the law courts - are demonstrably needed by individual citizens and affect their interests directly, the citizens would (and should) be willing to pay for such services, as they pay for insurance." - Ayn Rand
