Objectivist Chess Players
This group is for Objectivists and admirers of Any Rand that enjoy playing chess! What is Objectivism? Objectivism maintains: A) Existence exists, A is A, things are what they are; B) Reason is man's means of knowledge; C) Man’s perception of the facts of reality must constitute the basis of his value-judgments, that just as reason is his only guide to knowledge, so it is his only guide to action; D) Man is an end in himself, not a means to the ends of others, he must live for his own sake with the achievement of his rational self-interest as the moral purpose of his life, neither sacrificing himself to others nor sacrificing others to himself; E) No one has the right to seek values from others by the initiation of physical force; F) The politico-economic expression of these principles is laissez-faire capitalism.
