Introducing Radicals for Happiness

Welcome!  Radicals for Happiness is dedicated to serious and not-so-serious matters related to the philosophy of rational egoism. Its inspirations are such writers, thinkers, and artists as Christopher Hitchens, Camille Paglia, Carl Sagan, Robert Heinlein, J.R.R. Tolkien, George Orwell and G.K. Chesterton, as well as the philosophic thought of Ayn Rand, Nietzsche, Spinoza, Epictetus, and Epicurus, among many others.

In our belief that each individual's happiness is his most sacred possession, we intend to focus particularly on matters which bring people joy, and when necessary on matters which pose a serious threat to human happiness.

Expect to find posts on current trends and ageless truths, works of art and the little joys of life, book, art, and movie reviews, essays on the human condition, and the occasional rant when events merit it. Overall, the point of this blog is to focus on the positive. Some people are only happy when they are unhappy. This blog hopes to change that.
