The Daily Objective: Peikoff’s Guide to Christmas

Watch live here: to join the conversation and send super chats.

Christmas is a time where we get to express generosity and beneficence towards our fellow man. People that we love. We get to demonstrate our appreciation for them, and we can do that because we live in tremendous wealth and live in a country that, for the most part, endorses freedom. That gives us the amazing level of production that enables us to take the time to sit with friends and relatives whom we like in front of a nice fire, and a big Christmas tree, and give out presents.

We have surplus on a scale unimaginable in human history, and to me, that’s what Christmas is. It’s a celebration of human production of the mind’s capacity to make us wealthy and to give that an appreciation to the people we love.
