I want to see if my young daughter loves me. Would it be immoral to tell her that I’m divorcing her mom and abandoning her to see if she cries, even if I tell her it is a lie in the next moment?

Some years ago a friend tried to seduce me while we were both drunk. I refused to let anything happen because she is the fiancé of a friend. I decided not to tell this to my friend, who loves her a lot, since nothing physical happened and she seemed to regret it. Is it immoral of me not to tell him?

I am a devoted Objectivist, but my boyfriend is not an admirer of Ayn Rand and is in fact a supporter of Obama. I want him in my life. Am I immoral and irrational for loving a man who opposes my highest value?

Some actors gain or lose a large amount of weight to play certain roles, and do it to an extent that seems self-destructive physically. If the actor believes that he is advancing his career and also challenging himself as an actor by subjecting his body to such stresses, can doing so be consistent with his rational self-interest?

If every man is innocent until proven otherwise, is it justifiable to infer that every man is trustworthy until proven otherwise? Or that every man is an Objectivist until proven otherwise?
