But isn't objectivist someone who thinks he's better than everyone else?
I got a philosophy degree, I'm not upset that I can't find work as a philosopher. It was my decision, and I knew that it wasn't a money making degree, so I get money elsewhere.

Is that a silence I am hearing?

You are refusing to answer simple questions.

The video claims that objectivists are herd-like. How is that the same as alpha-man-like?

An objective notion is only so, because the majority accept it as true regardless of their own opinion. Thus objectivism is a complete denial of the individual, and personal views. To be an objectivist is to FOLLOW the received wisdom: the wisdom of the priest, the king or tyrant. Ae these what you refer to as "alpha-men". The men that own you?


An objective statement is perfectly okay for matters of scientific interest, but when it comes to culturally and morally mediated assertions pur objectivity is absurd.

These just keep getting funnier.

The girl in the video is just like any other religious acolyte.
She's a follower, and that is all objectivists are: followers of someone else's view of objectivity.
