Rational egoism


I originally wrote a lengthy blog post about this, but it became very clear my frustrations would take over the content, so I think my tweet just about sums up how I feel about it.

Note: Twitter was the last social media site I was still using as 2020 began. I have since shut my account down and no longer post there. 

I find it amusing that people bristle about Chernyshevsky’s principle of rational egoism (“an action is rational if and only if it maximizes one’s self-interest”), denouncing it as garbage and then proceed to prove it by their actions daily. Rand was apparently right as well. smh
