Pro-life (pro-lie) morality: “If a woman doesn’t want to be a mother,
then she shouldn’t enjoy sex. (She shouldn’t enjoy it too much anyway.
It isn’t nice.)”

I don’t consider myself an Objectivist. (E.g., I’m a polytheist, not
an atheist, but I don’t want to get into that here.) I’m speaking for
myself here, not Ayn Rand or anybody else.

but *only*

Not. The word is used, esp. by those who constantly attack
“selfishness”, to mean any egoistic act or any altruistic act that has
an egoistic motive. Communists demand that you give up all your
property and time to the state or the commune and denounce you as
selfish if you refuse. Nazis demand that everything be sacrificed to
“the purity of the race”. The “moral majority” constantly denounce
women as selfish who demand the same choices in career, sexuality,
etc., that men have and who refuse to conform to “traditional family
roles”. Anti-porn pseudo-“feminists” demand that men (and women too)
give up their selfish sexual desires. Guilt-manipulators whine: “You’re
so selfish. You won’t give up your happiness to serve _me_.” or “Who
are you to hold on to your own beliefs. How can you be right and
everyone else wrong? You’re so selfish.” You yourself have,
unfortunately, written post after post saying that the individual
exists for the sake of the species, which I flat deny.
Ayn Rand once gave an excellent illustration of exactly what I mean by
selfishness: If you had to choose between saving your wife’s life and
saving the lives of ten other women, the selfish man would save his
wife. I’m proud to be selfish.

Quite true. A “politically incorrect” fact not too much mentioned
today: Hitler is blamed for starting that war by invading Poland.
Actually, both Hitler and Stalin started it by agreeing to split up
Poland between them. So why isn’t Stalin also blamed?

The very title of this thread is a lie. If by “P.C.” you mean
feminist, then why not just come out and say feminist? Ah, but “Our
Feminist Military” wouldn’t carry all the same connotations as “Our
P.C. Military”, would it?

That the 2nd Amendment protects only a government “right” and not an
_individual_ right to keep and bear arms is all of a piece with the
argument that the 1st amendment protects only “political” speech and
not “pornographic” speech. Both are total lies.

“Selfishness is immoral” means that it is immoral to breathe, eat,
enjoy sex, listen to music, or look at a sunset unless you can prove
that you’re doing it “for the good of humanity”.

READ the Constitution. Esp., read the 9th _and_ 10th Amendments. Also
read the 14th Amendment. Governments do _not_ have rights. Only
_individuals_ have rights. Governments have only _delegated_ and
stringently _limited_ powers.
As for your suggestion: no, I’m not going to move from state to state
until all 50 turn socialist. I’m going to stay where I am and defend my
freedom here.

It certainly isn’t anything like this: “D-uh. Federal government =
Big, Bad, Evil. State government = God over our lives.”

Welfare is not a right. Property is a right (see the 14th Amendment).

Keep running from state to state ’till every state turns socialist. No

Quite true. I _am_ intolerant of scumbags like Helms who would

I don’t think so.

Joan of Arc was the very opposite of a doormat and was an archetype of
what I mean by selfishness: she fought courageously for _her own_
values.

I don’t accept the premise that love for one’s spouse is in any way
