About

The Charles Tew Letter features my thought as an Objectivist philosopher in the form of both theoretical and practical essays, as well as a Q&A podcast.

In the theoretical essays I help you master Objectivism by explaining the most difficult ideas in and related to Ayn Rand’s philosophy, from the eternity of the universe to the harmony between free will and causality, from the justification of the choice to live to the factual basis of individual rights.

In the practical essays I apply the principles of Ayn Rand’s philosophy to explain everything from the false theory of value underlying the cryptocurrency movement to the religious basis 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 the Q&A podcast I answer subscriber questions such as “What role does humor play in the life of a rational man?” and “What is the secular basis for the institution of marriage?”

You also have the option of becoming a Sponsor, which is a way of supporting my work by subscribing at a higher rate. The financial security your payment provides makes it possible for me to spend my time thinking, writing, and speaking about the philosophical foundations of an exalted life. In that sense, the reward for becoming a Sponsor is the existence of everything I produce.
