If there is no black and white, there can be no gray because gray is just a mixture of the two. In order to discover that something is morally "gray," you first have to establish what is black and what is white. Once you have ascertained what is good and what is evil, there is no justification for choosing anything in between.

Quote They are not a philosophical school of thought; they are the typical product of philosophical default--of the intellectual bankruptcy that has produced irrationalism in epistemology, a moral vacuum in ethics, and a mixed economy in politics. A mixed economy is an amoral war of pressure groups, devoid of principles, values or any references to justice, a war whose ultimate weapon is the power of brute force, but whose outward form is a game of compromise. The cult of moral grayness is the ersatz morality which made it possible and to which men now cling in a panicky attempt to justify it.

Objectivits. Sheesh.

Something tells me that people have been upset with "the way things are" since before the very beginning.

It's just noise making. People want the attention, and want others to take them seriously, so they make outrageious claims like they are going to secede, but we all know for a fact that it will never happen.

Well there you go. They got their attention. We're here talking about it, aren't we?

I know, I saw that you said "gray" and just had to post that. It's one of my favorite quotes. I had a feeling this would be my only chance to post it in a long time.

And WW, it is Objectivists.
