The Objectivist Conference (OCON) and Ideas for Living Life on Earth

In Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged, the world’s hidden producers gathered for one month each summer and in part they traded the intellectual products that they had produced during the prior year. Similarly, Objectivists (those who study and apply Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism) gather for a week to socialize with their peers and trade ideas relevant to living life on Earth.

This gathering is called OCON and information about the current conference can be found at  Additionally, for those who can’t break away from producing to travel, the conference offers a LiveStream option of selected content.

If you are missing out on this opportunity to selfishly enhance your own life, the Ayn Rand Institute has shared some full presentations by leading Objectivist thinkers from prior OCONs on their YouTube channel; I have listed many below for your enjoyment. Not to worry, if this sampling only wets your appetite, MP3s of many more OCON lectures and additional materials are available via the Ayn Rand eStore.

Why should you care what Objectivists are thinking? Check out this video overview of Objectivism in Ayn Rand’s own words from her initial column in the Los Angeles Times.

If after consuming this feast of ideas, you decided that this is a value that you want to add to your life, including meeting such thinkers face-to-face, then plan to attend the next OCON and I will see you there, or watch the LiveStream and you can look for me in the audience.

Live virtuously, achieve your values, and enjoy your life, because it is your life.
