Description: While John McCain and Barack Obama struggle to distinguish themselves in terms of particular promises, it is crucial for Americans to recognize that these candidates are indistinguishable in terms of fundamentals.
In this talk, Craig Biddle, editor of “The Objective Standard,” examines the candidates’ platforms, identifies essential similarities among their proposals, and shows their aims to be manifestly at odds with the American ideal of individual rights. Mr. Biddle then zeros in on the purpose of government presumed by the candidates’ goals, shows this purpose to be an expression of a particular moral philosophy shared by these men and by most Americans, and demonstrates that this morality is the root cause of the abysmal alternative we now face. Finally, Mr. Biddle specifies the moral principles that Americans must grasp if we want to generate future candidates who will return government to its proper purpose of protecting our rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness.
Bio: Craig Biddle is the editor and publisher of “The Objective Standard” and the author of “Loving Life: The Morality of Self-Interest and the Facts that Support It.” In addition to writing, he lectures and teaches workshops on ethical and epistemological issues from an Objectivist perspective.
