Objectivist Round Up

Welcome to the April 7, 2011 edition of the Objectivist Round Up.  After having enjoyed a delightful week of friendship and celebratory times, I thought this quote on Thanksgiving just hit the spot.  There is so much joy in sharing and appreciating accomplishments.

Thanksgiving is a typically American holiday. In spite of its religious form (giving thanks to God for a good harvest), its essential, secular meaning is a celebration of successful production. It is a producers’ holiday. The lavish meal is a symbol of the fact that abundant consumption is the result and reward of production. Abundance is (or was and ought to be) America’s pride—just as it is the pride of American parents that their children need never know starvation.

Rational Jenn presents Tattling and the Virtues posted at Rational Jenn, saying, "I realized that sometimes I use tattling incidents as a way to help my kids redirect their attention from what others are or aren't doing and back toward what they are (or should be) doing. It's an opportunity to help them know to do what they know is right even if others aren't."

Edward Cline presents Ashes for Allah: New Calls for Censorship posted at The Rule of Reason, saying, "Politicians, generals and pundits do not become overwrought about the burning of bibles, Torahs, or other religious documents. Only about Korans. This is because Islam is always in the news, in some form or another, and that is because Muslims are always being “provoked” by the least criticism of them and their creed to throw bloody tantrums. Islam is another “culture,” another religion, another “way of life,” and by the criteria of political correctness and an affinity for dhimmitude, it must be protected from all forms of offense."
