Mark Skousen, the Mormon financial advisor, spoke today. He attacked Objectivism for being too selfish. He said Objectivists were not inclined to charitable activities.
Which was odd because *before* he spoke my wife announced she was organizing a scholarship fund for students to attend the Free Minds conference next year.
Skousen called for finding a middle way between egoism and altruism.
But Alexander Cohen pointed out that this might be problematic, since these are two answers to the question: what is the proper end of ethics?
Is there a golden mean
Or does egoist living
in fact include forms of giving?
