There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !
Ron Pisaturo is an actor, writer, self-proclaimed philosopher, and
batshit crazy Supremely Rational™ adherent of Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism. Among the positions which he advocates is the belief that the first human or group of humans to land on Mars should be able to claim ownership of the entire planet for themselves, and that the War on Terror can best be won by nuking most of the Middle East, thereby killing large numbers of innocent men, women, and children savages, and leaving a large amount of land which can be colonized by rational, moral 'Murricans.
In addition to this, he claims to be the founder and former president of the American Renaissance School, a private school which he claims maintains "high academic standards"  A cursory search of the school's website did not reveal any mention of his name. This Google Group mentions him as a founder  A former student Peter Bertine attests that he was a founder of the school who encouraged professors to bully him 
“”In America, an individual has the right to use force in self-defense, even if it means harming innocent bystanders.
“”Our standard of value must be: The rights of one American, whether a soldier or a civilian, are worth more than the lives of all men, women and children in all these nations combined.
“”The issue is simple. Our problem began when we Americans, failing to defend our rational self-interest, put wealth in the hands of savages by letting them rob our oil fields. It will end when we use our might, including our nuclear arsenal, to crush their evil governments, take back our property, and isolate, colonize, and settle the lands the savages now roam.
