    Maximizing Rewards and Managing Risk Through Rational Objectivism 

    Subjectivity can be irrational if it allows for unmanaged risk, assuming a human’s goal is to maximize their well-being. Therefore, maximizing objectivity is the next logical progression of human evolution.

    Many of the most successful people understand this and classify other parts of life as “noise.” Therefore, assuming an increasingly intelligent population, I think more humans will come to this understanding.

    Am I saying I want to be an objective, emotionless robot? No. With the exception of seeking pleasure, I think maximizing rewards within the confines of risk management is the best way to live life.

    I think unlocking human achievements and innovation is a source of information worth pursuing because it can increase the quality of life.

    Life is a Statistical Anomaly: Social Care is Irrational 

    People are lucky to be alive. It takes two unique sets of 23 chromosome gametes to form a zygote, which evolves through meiosis to form a healthy human.  The chance of of being born with good genes by supporting parents in a healthy environment, prosperous nation, and the right set of conditions to succeed is a statistical anomaly.

    If someone was born thousands of years ago, they would have no social safety and be forced to live within their means or die. Guaranteed jobs, health care, and pensions are antiquated socialist paradigms; people need to be responsible for their own well-being and realize how lucky they are to be alive.

    People should live a balanced budget, and not expect more than the benefits created by the best, historically proven economic paradigm–capitalism and privatization.

    Specifically, privatization enables incentives to maximize an economy’s ability to maximize output.

    What is wrong with the free lunch that comes with socialist programs? There is an unstable economic equilibrium because cash is not as efficiently allocated as the free enterprise system would allocate it. History supports this thesis–beyond capitalism, there is no system that maximizes prosperity for the highest quantity of people.
