Nathaniel Branden Answers

Nathaniel Branden answers a question of two of my post Of Any Given Age. The idea of efficacy, self-esteem and pleasure are timeless. While the tools and stage of where we live change, these truths hold true. Thank you to Chuck Jines for the education. This is true Objectivism. This essay was written 46 years ago. No wonder Ayn Rand had such respect for him at one time.





Thank you for reading this blog.

No problem. Branden was Rand's star student and paramour at one time. They split and Branden went off on his own. I think he has the best grip on Objectivism and it takes out the tin foil as well. I am glad you liked it.

Branden was the sane one. Rand was a nutbag. A brilliant nutbag.

She was also really ugly. I think that colored her attitude. The perspective of an ugly woman is often quite dark.

She liked the pipe though, so I have to give her that much. I am sure she didn't disappoint. Ho ho. The interesting thing is she was married too and in fact, her husband frank was a literary muse for her. I believe she loved him, judging from her appearance on The Phil Donahue Show after he died, but why she would willingly cheat I have no idea. I also wonder why no kids, but may be she was better off.

As far as dark goes, Even Coulter can be a little dark. I sense a sadness in her heart.
