The Objectivization of Cato?

“Cato will become a more Objectivist organization." - New president John Allison, via tweet by Arthur Zey.

I can do no other than be reverent before everything that is called life. I can do no other than to have compassion for all that is called life. That is the beginning and the foundation of all ethics.

Although I don't agree completely with the idea of a non-interventionist foreign policy, turning Cato into a pro-war shop would be a bad idea.

I've heard Objectivists call for nuking Iran, repealing the Geneva Convention, among other things.

Soon to come at Cato:

* Inane opinions about contemporary music that must be pushed without question.
* Pieces praising smoking as a moral obligation, and berating homosexuality as a mental defect.
* Those damn second-handers, amirite?
* Cato plans to take over the world by starting their own island society. More at 11.

Stop it Tremblay, I'm cracking up here!

Whaddya mean he's serious?

I thought that after every one of these announcements from Cato, a drummer would go ba-boom ching!

Actually if the prounoncements are that funny I'm off to their site not to sign up to it. Like Mommie Dearest or Reefer Madness, objectivists are unintentionally funny. They make Simon Heffer look sane.
