Another Objectivist Freedom Fighter Succumbs to Cancer

Another Objectivist crusader for reason and liberty has succumbed to cancer. Young Joshua Lipana, assistant editor and writer of The Objective Standard, died April 22, 2013. His close friend, Craig Biddle, posted a moving tribute to Lipana titled Joshua Lipana Fought Until He Could Fight No More, in which Biddle said:

My dear friend . . . Joshua loved life with a contagious passion. He thought at levels well beyond his years. He wrote with an eloquence few writers ever acquire. And he laughed with a joy earned only through perfect virtue. His death is a monumental loss not only for those of us who knew and adored him, but for every person on Earth who values human ability, rationality, freedom, flourishing.
  I second that.

So, for the second time in a little over a year, Objectivism has lost a New Intellectual. We'll miss him.
