Seeking Truth – Facing Ourselves
We can find our ideas from many sources; religion, the media, schools, governments, eastern philosophies, western philosophies, and so on. What “sticks” is a little different for each person. We are exposed to information every day. We all have different backgrounds. We all have access to different data. We have predispositions based on how we were raised, or what our parents repeated when we were children. And we can seek out fresh ideas and judge for ourselves what is right and correct and what isn’t. From many different sources we develop a philosophy to live by. We all have one, whether we know it or not. This article will mainly concern the philosophy of Ayn Rand. But we will also discuss the general ideas of learning new things, challenging ourselves, and developing a good system of thinking to thrive and enjoy our lives.
