What she regarded as evil is self-sacrifice; doing something
based upon guilt, obligation or a moral/ethical code imposed
upon you. Anything you decide to do for your own emotional,
philosophical, physical or financial benefit is highly regarded.
- Wow! I didn't realize I would ignite a philosophic debate by asking how many objectivists were in this forum...
I'm sticking strictly to FSP business from now on.

Considering that NH is a real Town Hall type of place, are FSP
members allowed to vote and/or comment on policies?

policies, the Officers implement them. The FSP is not a "NH
organization", it is a national organization.
We do have numerous email lists, forums, committees etc in which
people can comment to their hearts content, and yes, of course the
Board looks at comments and utilizes input to make policy, in fact,
most of the recent policies you see on the page were passed due to
concerns and input from members.
So certainly continue to post comments to the forums and lists, that's
how we know what our members concerns are, so that we can set
policy to keep our organization running smoothly to the benefit of all
our members. If you see an issue that has not been addressed, but
needs addressing, please send it on.
And again, for those who were impatiently waiting for the Web Site
policy and the Partners Policy, for example, we have a lot on our
plate but are steadily working our way through the issues, and we do
appreciate your patience. But we do get things done fairly quickly, I
think, for an all volunteer organization.
