  1. Wanted to add this about today’s show, in terms of how altruism has poisoned our response to 9/11. Lying for others – Telling the biggest lie of them all, “Islam means peace”, a lie that’s used to justify how we proceed in this altruistic “war”. Living for Others – having our soldiers build schools that teach students to hate and ultimately kill those soldiers. And Dying for Others – placing the lives of our soldiers beneath the lives of Muslims.

  2. Thanks for the show. I found the bit about sacrifice very good. Almost every piece of media I digest uses the word sacrifice in the most disgusting way. Everything from the video games I play to the news outlets uses the word sacrifice in a contradictory sense. I think Paul McKeever’s video about Veteran’s Day sums up my dismay at how people use the term. I watched this video when I was first curious about Objectivism and it made too much sense.
