  1. just finished listening to the lecture you presented, Les. would i be wrong in saying that the objectivist views himself as being farther to the right than even the libertarian is?

    1. No. Actually, The objectivist is much more likely to hold views more aligned with liberal thinking. As in the enlightened thinkers of the 18th century such as Jefferson and Madison. The Objectivist thinking is closely aligned with the philosophy of Aristotle rather than say Plato or Hegel to name just two.
