The Charles Tew Letter features essays and Q&A on the theory and practice of Objectivism, the philosophy originated by Ayn Rand.

In my weekly practical essays, I apply the principles of Objectivism to explain everything from the false theory of value underlying the cryptocurrency movement to the religious roots of transgenderism, from the philosophical premises that cause obsessive-compulsive disorder to the reason why there can be no exceptions to the principle of free speech.

In my weekly Q&As, I answer subscriber questions such as “What role does humor play in the life of a rational man?” and “What is the worldly justification for the institution of marriage?”

In my monthly theoretical essays, I explain Objectivism's most difficult ideas, from the eternity of the universe to the harmony between free will and causality, from the objective yet secular nature of morality to the factual basis of individual rights.
