"The intellectual is dead. Long live the intellectual."Submitted by dwalters on Sat, 09/01/2012 - 14:33
The title is a quote from Ayn Rand.
Most humans fall in the trap of employing emotions in their decision making processes. Often times, this is a destructive approach. Logic and reason are the only reliable means for people to interact with objective reality. Refusing logic and replacing it with emotions and/or mysticism is one of the major culprits for the retardation of human progress.
I urge everyone to listen to the following Ayn Rand interview conducted by James McConnel in 1961 and listen to what Ayn had to say. Enjoy!
