Since the age of 23 I have been greatly interested in and influenced by Ayn Rand . I love both her great literary works and her philosophy of Objectivism — and I have expended considerable effort in studying and promoting both.
The New Religion of Ecomania
Environmentalism is a neo-religious movement based on pseudo-science. It masquerades behind a seemingly benign concern for fresh air and clean water — which of course no one can be against! — but it is really based on the mystical and perverse idea that Nature or Earth has a sacred value in and of itself, apart from human needs and goals, and that human lives should be sacrificed on the altar of snakes and snails.
Environmentalism is an irrational and evil doctrine — and just as great a threat to prosperous, happy living as Nazism and Communism were fifty years ago.

I am an intransigent atheist and have been so since kindergarten. Religion is bunk — as is astrology, parapsychology, reincarnation, spoon bending and all other kinds of superstitious garbage — including environmentalism.

I am not much interested in politics (not to mention economics) anymore, but whenever necessary I will always defend the individual's inviolable rights to Life, Liberty and Property against encroachments by collective forces. In other words, I am neither a compassion-worshipping liberal nor a tradition-worshipping conservative nor an anarchy-worshipping libertarian, but a supporter of the only truly practical and moral social system in history: laissez-faire capitalism.
