About this video

In this third video of a four-part seminar, Craig Biddle shows how Ayn Rand’s ethics—including her demonstration that life is the standard of moral value, her validation of the morality of self-interest or egoism, and her demonstration of the fact that physical force used against an individual precludes him from acting on his basic means of living (the judgment of his mind)—gives rise to the principle of individual rights: the principle that each individual morally must be left free to act on his own judgment for his own sake.
