Many Objectivists fall into the trap of calling for tolerance while at the same time being intolerant themselves of other Objectivists who hold opposing views on cultural issues. This friction increases because of the wider cultural rift in America generally on these same cultural issues.
Abortion, gay marriage, divorce, and raising children outside of marriage are but a few of the more incendiary issues that cause Objectivists to become intolerant of opposing views.
This session will make the case for culturally traditional Objectivists. Dononohue Shortridge will argue they deserve their place at the Objectivist table just as do culturally liberal Objectivists. We have to learn to live together if the Objectivist movement is to grow.
Donohue Shortridge is a Montessori teacher educator and parent coach and a longtime Objectivist.
