RE: Ayn Rand Had it Right
I consider myself an objectivist for the most part. I do part with Rand on two significant issues. The first is that she considered money to the measure of all value. Of course I reject this, as would anyone who has "normal" relations with others as well as "normal" well-rounded interests (e.g. outdoor sports, travel, other things you cannot define in terms of money only). The second is that Rand did not consider pioneering to be a value in and of itself. I, on the other hand, believe that true spirituality is based exclusively on pioneering and consider all non-pioneering cultures to be inherently dysfunctional.

Rand's views on idividualism, productive accomplishment, and in particular, her derivation of free market capitalism from merit and individual liberty to be 100% spot-on. I especially agree with her concept of epistemology, not for the least of which I came up with the same concept while in high school having no knowledge of either Rand or libertarianism at the time.

The idea that libertarianism is incompatible with community is completely false. Individuals are free to associate with and form communities (e.g. network) with whomever they want. They are even free to exclude others from whatever communities they choose to form. However, they are not free to prevent others from exiting any community if such individuals freely choose to. The freedom of exit is inherent to the freedom of association. As members of what is essentially a dissent movement, alt-right, the understanding of such should be completely intuitive to you.
