April 2015 Supper/Discussion Meeting
Wednesday, May 6th, 6:30 - 8:30

In Her Own Words (with Phil Donahue 1979)

Ayn Rand attacks altruism as evil and both defines and defends her philosophy of objectivism. Rand also explains how monopolies cannot exist unless they are supported by government erected barriers to competition.
What makes this particular interview noteworthy is that Donahue plays the perfect devil's advocate.

More than half a century later, Rand's code of morality and her bold challenge to altruism theory is equally controversial and no less fascinating to study. Objectivism is still one of the most important cultural conversations to engage, if only for the passionate consideration of all sides of the argument that it ignites.

We also have the transcript for you. Read and/or download it here

Please RSVP - Yea, Nay or Maybe here by Monday, May 4th, (even if still a Maybe) so we can arrange adequate seating.

Winter-Spring 2015 Distinguished Scholars Series

Final Talk for the Semester was Friday, March 13, 2015,

Series will resume in the Fall.


The PURPOSE of the Ayn Rand Society for Individual Rights of Naples (ARSIRN) is to provide educational venues for studying the ideas underlying individual rights, particularly their moral foundation as first identified by Ayn Rand; to provide a social environment for like-minded individuals; and to raise funds for the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights (ARC)

ARSIRN's GOAL is to provide sufficient, on-going funding for ARC to make Naples a regular stop for speakers from the Ayn Rand Center and the Ayn Rand Institute.

The Society's STRATEGY is to reach out to the broader southwest Florida community through public events, including one major fund-raising event each year.

ARSIRN is open to all readers of Ayn Rand's fiction and/or nonfiction who are sympathetic to her views and wish to pursue their implications. To join with us just complete our support form.

NOTE: We are centered in Naples, Florida, deep in the southwest part of the state. We have members from Port Charlotte, Sarasota, Tampa and St. Pete . . . and welcome others — in spirit if not in body.
