Objectivist Round Up #4--A Menagerie

We have another Objectivist Round Up! The posts span the gamut from seeking knowledge, to government, to sense-of-life.



Bill Brown presents An Inconvenient Uncertainty posted at bblog. Getting a handle on the state of science, not consensus.

Stella presents Lybrel: A study in wasted resources posted at ReasonPharm. The FDA and a discussion how it affects prescriptions and insurance coverage.

Rational Jenn presents Compulsory Education Versus Compulsory Attendance posted at Rational Jenn. What the government can and can't mandate (as opposed to should, of course).

Craig Ceely presents The politics -- and economics -- of Prohibition posted at The Anger of Compassion. How can economics drive politics?

Aaron presents The Tie posted at Thought Laboratory. Swimming against the tide (no pun, right?) of casual dress.

Flibbert presents Doggess, Please posted at Flibbertigibbet. A post discussing the recent NYC council attempts. Not for the faint-of-heart when it comes to vulgarities. I definitely learned at least one new term!

I present Another Article Attacking a Neo-Atheist and Promoting Religion posted at Kim's Play Place. I have spent time looking at articles about the slew of recent anti-religion books and articles in response. I do not have the arguments in this debate down pat. In checking out this article, though, something struck me. The true division between the "new" atheists and religion is shown. And I've seen it somewhere before....

That concludes this wonderful collection. If you would like to submit your blog article to the next edition of objectivist round up, please use our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

If you like the carnival, please consider: hosting, posting, or putting up a post so readers can find the current one!

As a big "thank you" to all of the bloggers who submitted and helped me discover so many great reads out there, all of the submitters' names went into a hat for a drawing for a $10 Amazon gift certificate! Rational Jenn is the lucky winner. The Amazon gift certificate is electronic so as soon as I figure it out, you should see it in your inbox. I won't be able to do this regularly (not having an income and all), but may choose to do so again in the future.
