I attended OCON 2016 to get the word on objectivism from the horse’s mouth, as it were, and boy did I. My conclusion: ARI and objectivism are great for those seeking a pseudo-intellectual basis for war, intellectual property, and government more broadly.

Dave Rubin, the host of the show, interviews authors, activists, journalists, comedians, actors, and professors, and he digs deep into the issues at hand. Topics range from political correctness, to freedom of speech, to foreign policy, religion, atheism, and Objectivism. Whatever is under discussion in any given show, one common thread ties everything together: an appreciation for the importance of ideas and an understanding of the freedom required to talk about and act on them. In other words, the common thread is the fundamental ideals of classical liberalism.
