7.25 – #DNCleak Mess Fall Out and HausGuest Sunny Lohmann on Selfishness

Whoa. Tons of stuff to talk about today. And it was a GREAT show:

HausGuest – Sunny Lohmann

Sunny and I discussed the positives AND negatives of this recent Prager University video:

The main issue was the word selfish and that it gets conflated with self-interest AND greed. A proponent of Ayn Rand’s Objectivism, Sunny asserted that the advancement and pursuit of one’s own interest – in priority to everything else – is supremely moral.

Her position is supported by the thinking and philosophy contained herein:ayn_rand_the_virtue_of_selfishness

And perhaps best summarized by Adam Smith’s very famous quote:

“It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.”


It was a GREAT segment and she is a PERFECT HausGuest!
