Reddit.com is an awesome site and the Objectivism subreddit needs more subscribers

3 posts in this topic

It allows all the users to up and down vote posts and comments and this mechanism does a pretty great job of filtering out uninteresting content. The reddit community is a bit on the liberal side but not hugely. I would say it is far more atheist than it is liberal which is the thing i was most pleasantly surprised by. here are the top 20 most subscribed subreddits: (atheism is #17!)

Libertarian has 43,000 and Objectivism only has 1,000 . 43 to 1 is way to high of a ratio.

I am happy to see they keep their science material and separate from philosophy, religion and politics. That is a good policy.

The only thing that counts in science is good predictions and good experiments. All else is dross.
