Craig Biddle Talk on Auraria Campus: "Capitalism: The only Moral Social System

Come see Craig Biddle speak at the Auraria Campus about Capitalism and it's moral importance.


Capitalism: The Only Moral Social System

Capitalism is widely recognized as the practical social system because, wherever and to the extent that it is implemented, it leads to wealth and prosperity. But this same system is widely regarded as immoral because it enables people to act fully in their own self-interest, that is, to act on their own judgment and to keep, use, and dispose of the product of their own effort. This talk demonstrates why, far from making capitalism immoral, the fact that it enables everyone to act selfishly and own property is what makes it not only the most practical but also the only moral social system ever devised

Craig Biddle is an Ayn Rand Intellectual and Editor of The Objective Standard

Next Meeting: September 1st from 6:00PM - 7:30PM

Come join us for a viewing of Dr. Onkar Ghate's speech on "Atlas Shrugged" entitled: "Atlas Shrugged - America's Second Declaration of Independence." With a discussion to follow. (See below for description of the speech)

"In 1776 Thomas Jefferson announced to the world America's plans for independence. For the first time in history, there was to be a nation and a government dedicated to the individual's rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But from inception, and from both within and without, the ideals of the new nation were under attack.

Without a full justification of an individual's moral right to pursue his own life and happiness - not serve his neighbors, God or country - the nation was vulnerable, and its founding principles were slowly chipped away. In 1957 the missing justification came with the publication of "Atlas Shrugged." On this, the book's 50th anniversary, Dr. Onkar Ghate, Senior fellow at the Ayn Rand Institute (ARI), examines the moral revolution launched by Ayn Rand, without which the political revolution of the Founding Fathers had to remain incomplete. He shows what this moral revolution has meant for America so far, and what it promises for the future. Dr. Ghate show why "Atlas Shrugged" should be considered America's second Declaration of Independence - a declaration not of political but of moral independence."
