Just when you thought the fatwa days were over...a new schism emerges...
Leonard Peikoff, circa 6/21/2010:
"This is not the Catholic Church, Objectivism is not a dogma, and I am not the Pope! "
Leonard Peikoff, circa 6/27/2010:
"If you can even conceive of that as justified because of "property rights," then I say you haven't a clue what property rights or individualism or Objectivism is saying, because what permitting that amounts to is "roll over, kick me, kill me, I have nothing to say."
What's it all about this time? Check this out (transcript here). Where can I even begin? There's so much to say about this one...Anyway, here's a Whitman's sampler of the new schism...watch out for the nougat...
