From its beginning, America has stood for the ideals of the Enlightenment: reason, individual rights, capitalism, the pursuit of happiness. The dominant trends in America today, however – trends endorsed not only by our leadership, but seemingly by the public at large – represent the opposite of these ideals. On Monday, April 21, 2003, Dr. Leonard Peikoff, will hold a free public lecture in Irvine, California titled “America vs. Americans.” In his talk Dr. Leonard Peikoff explores this contradiction, along with our current moral cowardice, giving special emphasis to foreign policy.

Dr. Peikoff is the legal and intellectual heir of novelist/philosopher Ayn Rand, and founder of the Ayn Rand Institute. He is the author of Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand (1991); The Ominous Parallels (1982); and numerous Ayn Rand anthologies. This event is free to the public. Location: Hyatt Regency Irvine, 17900 Jamboree Road (at Jamboree and the 405 Freeway), Irvine, California. Time and Dates: Monday, April 21, 2003, Doors open at 6:30 PM; Presentation: 7:30 to 8:30 PM, Q&A: 8:30 to 9:30 PM; Reception follows until 10:00 PM.
