Objectivist Center Moving to DC. Next February, it is 100 years since Ayn Rand was born. In 2005, Timbro will publish a new Swedish edition of "Atlas Shrugged" - one of the books that has had the strongest impact on me, I admit. The Objectivist Center, working for Ayn Rand?s philospohy objectivism, will now be moving its headquarters to Washington DC. Ed Hudgins, a very competent and nice person, will be the new Managing Director. In the future, they will focus on two fields:
"One program focus will be the defense of capitalism as a moral ideal, not merely an economic one...: the moral right of individuals to their own lives; entrepreneurs as creators who should take pride in their creations; the moral virtues manifested by entrepreneurs; and the need for them to stop apologizing for creating the richest country on Earth.
A second focus will be the culture wars over religion, values, and the clash of civilizations. ... We will promote our distinctive cultural values?reason, individualism, and achievement?by applying to them to the issues of public debate."
