|cluntkow||04:46 pm - New Objectivism Community Group in San Diego|
Hi, my name is Christopher Luntkowski-Stojewa and I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in an Objectivism community group. Myself and Shekhar Deshpande are starting an Objectivism community group here in the San Diego area and we're looking for others who appreciate Ayn Rand's philosophy.
Our first meeting will be a dinner at the Grand Del Mar this Thursday, the 27th, at six o'clock. We will actually be meeting in the hotel lobby where they serve drinks and appetizers. We chose to meet here because we will be able to talk in the lobby.
The resort's address is 5299 Meadows Del Mar, San Diego, CA 92130. To get to the lobby, go up the resort's driveway, past the security gates, take the first right and follow this road to get to the lobby. Shekhar has offered to pay for all but 20$ of each person's meal.
Shekhar and I have agreed that we'd like three basic activities to be a part of our community group: socializing, discussion, and political activism. How much time we spend doing these comes down to what the members of our group would like, these activities are merely what Shekhar and I are interested in. Thus the activities our group will do will be discussed at our first meeting.
If you're interested in this group, please e-mail me and let me know. And if you're interested in coming to the first meeting this Thursday, let me know as soon as possible.
If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to let me know.

I recognize that this was posted several years ago, but in case anyone else stumbles across it, I wanted to suggest a current (2013) SoCal Objectivist Meetup group that I started a little while ago. I'd post the link but doing so would turn this message into spam. In any even, it's easy to find on Meetup.
The event I am currently hosting is a discussion of Leonard Peikoff's "The DIM Hypothesis: Why the Lights of the West Are Going Out". Anyone interested is welcome whatever their degree of knowledge, provided of course that they are reading the book. I plan to take a broad view of topics covered in the book, using it as the focal point for a consideration of Objectivism and the topics and periods that the book covers--especially once we have "gotten through" a first reading.
As DIM is an application of Objectivist fundamentals to the epistemological issue of integration as itself applied to historical/cultural analysis of causal factors, the group especially welcomes anyone interested in intellectual history and cultural change.
