Asheville Objectivists

Why we created the Asheville Objectivists

We live in a restrictive, collectivist culture that values conformity of thought above all else, including logic, reason and individual rights. As a result it is difficult in our culture to have an honest, intellectual discussion and difference of opinion without being attacked emotionally or with rancor.

Our primary purpose in creating Asheville Objectivists was to provide a setting where Objectivists can meet one another, have stimulating discussions and further our understanding of Objectivism. Members have a forum to gain insight into any aspect of Objectivism they wish to explore or have clarified. We also welcome non-Objectivists who sincerely wish to learn about our philosophy and will commit to using logic, reason and objective reality in that process.

Making friends, getting together socially and furthering our understanding of Objectivism in a respectful environment are the main goals of the Asheville Objectivists.

Next Meetings

Tuesday, May 12th, 6pm at the North Asheville Library, 1030 Merrimon Ave.

Our next meeting will have an open forum format. Although not necessary it certainly would facilitate discussion if you would consider bringing a question or something you need clarification, feedback or opinions on relating to Ayn Rand, Objectivism, Individual Rights or Capitalism. If you’d rather not ask the question yourself either write me with your question or simply bring your unsigned question with you and hand it to me before we begin. I will then ask the question or state your comment without naming you.
