“I’ll die for you” is selfish: Podcast ep. 37 now released

We must sacrifice a lot for love, right? That’s just common knowledge.

Matthew disagrees. He would never sacrifice anything to anyone. And neither should you, he argues. But would he die for that which he loves? Sure. What the wha’???

With the help of some lyrics from the song “I’ll Fight” by Chicago alt-country band Wilco to concretize the issue (and calling upon a key scene from Ayn Rand’s ‘Atlas Shrugged’ to drive it home), Matthew clarifies the concepts of sacrifice and love, and why “I’ll die for you” is really an act of integrity in the selfish pursuit of one’s highest values.
