National Review once again attacks and tries to mock Ayn Rand and Objectivism.

As usual, they—Kevin Williamson this time—don’t specify which principle(s) of Rand’s philosophy they oppose and why.

  • Is it the principle that things are what they are and can act only in accordance with their identities?
  • Or the principle that reason (i.e., the use of observation, conceptualization, and logic) is man’s only means of knowledge and basic means of living?
  • Or perhaps the principle that man’s free will lies in his choice to think or not to think?
  • Or maybe the principle that being moral consists in choosing and pursuing life-serving values while respecting the rights of others to do the same?
  • Or could it be the principle that the proper purpose of government is to protect the individual rights of all citizens, regardless of race, sex, creed, or color? . . .
