“Danielle D’Souza Gill explains an incredible racial discrimination scandal at Harvard University that the mainstream media is largely ignoring… in under 90 seconds!”
Learn more at Students for Fair Admissions — “a nonprofit membership group of more than 20,000 students, parents, and others who believe that racial classifications and preferences in college admissions are unfair, unnecessary, and unconstitutional.” Their mission is to support and participate in litigation that will restore the original principles of America’s civil rights movement: “A student’s race and ethnicity should not be factors that either harm or help that student to gain admission to a competitive university.”
Our take: the diversity that does matter in universities is intellectual — something sadly missing in a Harvard education indoctrination.
Don’t miss our first ever Ayn Rand Student Conference Europe (#AynRandConEurope). This weekend conference brings together students and non-students alike; everyone intrigued and inspired by Ayn Rand’s books and philosophy is welcome. With tribalism on the rise across our culture—in politics, psychology, philosophy, science, law, ethics—the theme of the conference could not be timelier: “Individualism in an Age of Tribalism.”
Yaron Brook, Onkar Ghate, Lars Christensen, Flemming Rose, Douglas Murray, Gregory Salmieri, and other experts on Rand’s philosophy will discuss the pervasiveness of the tribal mentality and Rand’s answer to it—a radical new conception of individualism.
Students can get an additional 50% off using discount code ARIEUROPE50. In fact, ARI provides a limited number of student scholarships that can reduce the cost for students to attend the conference to almost $0, so make sure to share this with any students you know.
In this four part series Dr. Bernstein explains why both the so-called Right and the Left both unite under the collectivist banner of racism in their opposition to capitalism, and why the principle of individualism can reverse this trend.
I am writing to notify you about two big Read With Me announcements.
The first is that the app is now available free of charge, to eliminate the financial barrier in front of anyone who can’t afford it or doesn’t understand its value. If you go to the web app, or download the app for iPhone or Android, you will have immediate access to the full library of works, including Hugo’s Notre Dame de Paris and Ninety Three, Sinclair Lewis’s Arrowsmith, Tolstoy’s Kreutzer Sonata, and more.
The second is that on December 2nd, a week from Sunday, I will begin leading readers through Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment. If you’d like to join me and other members on this literary journey, now is the perfect time to download the app.
Dostoevsky said of his faith, “My hosanna has passed through a great crucible of doubt.” I believe it is that crucible – that fathomless depth and merciless rigor of thought, that unyielding determination to leave no psychological stone unturned, that intensity of moral ambition – that makes Dostoevsky required reading for everyone, believers and non-believers alike.
Too often, we adopt our own convictions with unthinking ease, rather than subjecting them to a crucible. My goal in starting Read With Me was to create a community of readers and accompany them on a journey through great works of literature that will challenge, deepen, and expand our outlook on life. Dostoevsky will.
As I said, anyone and everyone can now try Read With Me, because there is no longer a required subscription fee. I am a zealot on a literary mission, determined to show people what they stand to gain when they crack the pages of musty, old, beautiful, timeless books. Those who enjoy, and can afford, and want to support the existence of this program can become voluntary $10/month subscribers through Patreon.
I am not a professional actor. I am not a literary scholar. What I am is a sincere reader and a passionate lover of literature. You can think of the Read With Me app as providing you a book-loving friend in your pocket, always happy to read to you from my heart and to share with you what fascinates me about what we are reading.
Try Read With Me. Share it with the would-be readers in your life. Make literature part of your life.
