*not a Live the Dream event
The difference between those of us who are comfortable with the status quo and those who truly love liberty is the willingness to share the freedom we want for ourselves with the rest of the world—whether politically or in our love lives. Ayn Rand herself lived an alternative lifestyle, though perhaps in a way which would not be considered ethical polyamory today—how would it have affected the story if her characters were poly? Liberty advocates who want the freedom to act in their own best interest while maintaining the desire to see others restricted in their ability to do the same (short of actual harm) because those others might do something the “liberty advocates” disapprove of are not really serving the cause of liberty. Is it true that liberty best serves the needs of humanity? We will discuss whether Rand’s characters embraced this position as well as examine whether she herself held that view in Atlas Shrugged and her other writings.
Don’t miss it!
