New Ideal: From, And To, Intellectual Mavericks

In this end-of-year episode of New Ideal Live, Elan Journo and Nikos Sotirakopoulos celebrate another year of unique cultural analysis and commentary by the intellectuals at the Ayn Rand Institute.

Among the topics covered:

  • How our unique perspective on the culture flows from the principled philosophical framework developed by Ayn Rand;
  • Why we do not fight primarily against bad ideas, but for positive ideals;
  • How Rand’s understanding of the power of philosophy enabled her to predict the present decline of Western civilization;
  • How our analysis at New Ideal is shaped by our conviction that philosophical ideas have the power to shape human affairs, for good or ill;
  • Why we aim to reach active-minded people who are open to new and challenging ideas;
  • Our appreciation for all the donors who make our work at ARI possible.
