Rational-Self-Interest Service Fees
For Our Mutually Beneficial Pursuits of Happiness
Energize! The Great Persuasion
(The Page of Reason, Supplement 1, Section 16)
The gp Core Team works to enrich rationality, to propagate Objectivist Principles—on an extraordinarily broad-scale. And this is not a charitable service. It is a service of utmost rational-self-interest necessity. To earn the fruit, we must play the flute. We will play this flute. We can play a simple ditty within a forlorn wilderness, or we can play a monumental concerto, within all cultures and civilizations, all around the Earth.
The degree to which we play this flute depends upon the availability of financial resources. And it is from voluntary rational-self-interest service fees that we acquire these energizing resources. gp Able Leaders energize! The Great Persuasion by posting rational-self-interest service fees:
- gp Copper Able Leaders: One Alexander Hamilton ($10.00), or more.
- gp Silver Able Leaders: Larger fees earn an option for honorable recognition.
- gp Gold Able Leaders: An exemplary option is to energize! a usa Sub-Project.
For further details, reference the website’s Service Fees page. And please do remember that mega-legions of able individuals are depending upon you—for our mutually beneficial pursuits of happiness.
- All times for false hopes and strategic patience have long since passed.
- And, for value produced, what are just a few small Hamiltons or Franklins?
- Read on, but please do! post your service fee: soon, soon, soon!
For one full iteration of Our usa Project to become completed, possibly $100 million will eventually become required. To enrich rationality, within all cultures and civilizations, all around the Earth—substantially more. Nevertheless, each and every Alexander Hamilton ($10.00) will become important and valuable.
