Magnanimous Media is a fast growing professional video equipment rental house and production facility in Chicago, Illinois. We are in search of individuals with a benevolent view of business and life as a whole, as wells as knowledge of and a passion for video production. We aim to be a dynamic, state-of-the-art, value-creating business, with our foot firmly planted on the proverbial pedal, and the pedal firmly against the proverbial metal.

On March 12, the Loyola Student Objectivist Society will present a debate between Yaron Brook and Dr. David Schweickart on the topic “Capitalism in Crisis.” This is a FREE event, and local Objectivists are encouraged to attend.
For further details, and to RSVP, visit the Loyola Student Objectivist Society’s website or Facebook page.
Please join us on Thursday, February 28th at 7:00 pm for an evening of relaxed, unstructured conversation with fellow Objectivists. We will be meeting at Fountainhead on the corner of Damen and Montrose in the Ravenswood neighborhood.
For those who have never been there, they have a full service restaurant and a bar with an extensive beer list. Street parking is available, and it is only a 3-minute walk from the Montrose Brown Line station.
If there is a good turnout, we intend to do it again on the first Thursday of every month, so we hope to see you there.
Before there will be a political revolution, there must be a moral revolution. Before there will be a moral revolution, there must be serious public discussion about very abstract ideas. Before that can happen, there must be a public capable of abstract thought, but the government schools are turning out legions of future voters who are not equipped for the task.
In their forthcoming documentary, Elizabeth and David O’Brien propose that part of the solution to the abysmal failure of the U.S. education system will be an English Grammar Revolution. As Ayn Rand put the issue, “The primary purpose of concepts and of language is to provide man with a system of cognitive classification and organization, which enables him to acquire knowledge on an unlimited scale; this means: to keep order in man’s mind and enable him to think” (The Ayn Rand Lexicon, ‘The Cognitive Role of Concepts’, http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/language.html).”
So, if this issue is important to you, please consider supporting this project on Kickstarter.
