Urgent: distribute The Undercurrent, issue 5

1 post in this topic

Dear students of Objectivism,

If you care about the survival of our culture, as we desperately do, please consider distributing The Undercurrent on your campus. We won't review for you all the ways in which our culture is dying for lack of intellectual fuel--presumably, you already know the symptoms, and see them around you daily. But if we want to resuscitate the culture, we must start on college campuses, where it's suffocating today at a faster rate than anywhere else.

It won't cost you much at all, in money or time, to distribute The Undercurrent. It's on newsprint, so it's cheap (about $8.75 per 250 copies plus shipping), and it takes less than half an hour to distribute stacks of it to key locations on campus. But for that price, you get to expose countless students to Objectivism. Many of them you might not have reached any other way. That's what we get out of The Undercurrent--knowing that we're making a real impact on campus culture, breathing whiffs of reason and earthly values onto the students who pick us up and read our pages. But we can't do it without distributors.

The deadline for placing orders is TUESDAY, JANUARY 24. Send your order, with the number of issues you wish to purchase, your name, school, and shipping address, to

The theme of Issue 5 is "Religion." For a sneak preview, see

The articles are as follows:

* "Moral Values without Religion" by Peter Schwartz (ARI op-ed)

* "The Bait and Switch of 'Intelligent Design'" by Keith Lockitch

(ARI op-ed)

* Quinn Price, "Intelligent Design and the Philosophy of Make-believe"

* Gena Gorlin, "Chronicles of Narnia: Christian Sheep in Lion's


* Kara Zavarella, "The Case for Girly Beauty"

The issue also marks the premier of two new regular features--a commentary on campus publications, and a column on news from the Objectivist movement. In this issue:

* Rebecca Knapp, "Religious Tolerance Blights Campus Culture"

* Ray Girn, "A Man of Science Crusades against Intelligent Design"

As you know, all of our writers are long-time OAC students committed to the study of Objectivism. We at the Undercurrent share a common, selfish

goal: to rescue our dying culture by spreading Objectivist ideas on campus.

We currently have 15 campuses committed to distribution. If you share our vision, add your campus to the list today to help make an even bigger impact.

All the best,

The Undercurrent Staff
