I took up the fundamental immorality of abortion last week, and I addressed some additional issues in this week’s video/podcast. That particular chunk, about twelve minutes, is shown in the YouTube clip below.
In the video, I focus on specious pro-abortion arguments, in particular those put forth by Ayn Rand. I link this back to a bogus idea called the “prudent predator,” illustrating why both claims are essentially equivalent — and equally invalid.
I am thus a very mixed blessing for the self-anointed “students of Ayn Rand.” I take away the pain inflicted upon their minds by an argument they could never answer, but at the cost of ripping away a bit of their holy writ.
A special note for the followers of Ayn Rand’s intellectual
errors heirs: Where am I wrong? If they won’t illuminate their disagreements with Man Alive!, the logical inference to be drawn is that they can’t. The emperor is naked. Now everybody knows.
As with everyone reading here, if you find you like my arguments better than the ones you’ve been reciting so far, there’s a reason for that: I’m working from an accurate understanding of human nature, not trying to shoehorn humanity — and your mind — into an arbitrary dogma.
