[Beta] Objectivism

The world is not complicated, you understand that, no, that is what the weak will want you to think. We are all a bunch of animals that have become strong due only to the uncompromising cruelty of the world. If you aren't strong then you will die, if you are strong then you will thrive. Objectivists believe that selfishness is the core value in the understanding of the world. As long as everyone looks out for themselves the world will work fine. Objectivism isn't about leaving people behind or have the strong dominate the weak, it is simply the philosophy of self-reliance. Objectivists are tough and capable. They do not offer assistance to the other members of the group unless they're getting something out of it and they do not accept it unless they feel like it. Charity only makes you weaker. They are not however opposed to teamwork. If working together increases their personal likelihood of success then it is in their rational self interest to work together.

Objectivists use their personal reserves of power, capability and knowledge to press onward through the harsh circumstances of life. They deal damage well and can take it as well. They don't however work particularly well with social circumstances unless it suits their means.
