    No, I haven't, but from what little I've read on Objectivism, it really doesn't appeal to me, and I think she might've had a screw or three loose.

    You just insulted Mr. Galt's idol. He obviously picked his username after the protagonist in Atlas Shrugged. My work here is done.

    Not insulted at all. We have discussed this before, Kiddo. I agree with her on many points, but not all. And why would I idolize a person simply because she agrees with me?
    But sir, your opinion is wrong.

    Really, they didn't loosely base it on the ancient Greek construct of a/the Republic, or something like that????

    The Greek political construct was not the first political/governmental entity, so these "pioneers" of sorts could not base their system on something that had not yet occurred.

    So, basically you are talking about discontinuous political growth, i.e. revolution?!?!?

    The first political construct was Hammurabi who initiated the first code of law, "An eye for an eye."

    Civilization seems to have independantly developed in a few different places.
    The people who developed these civilizations had only tribal and nomadic societies before them.

    I imagine that much of the development of modern society as it is was not planned.

    When necessary, of course. Why not?
