+<h2 id="rindolfism">Rindolfism</h2>
+
+<p>
+Rindolfism is my own personal philosophy and idea system, based on many
+influences - both more “serious” ones such as
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Objectivism_%28Ayn_Rand%29">Ayn
+Rand’s Objectivism</a> (I am not a “Randian” mind you, which I no longer find
+usable in this day and age),
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judaism">Judaism</a> (the philosophy
+, culture, and idea system, of the Jewish people, which is much more than
+just a religion), and the
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source">open source</a>/
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_content">open content</a> movements
+- as well as things that don’t take themselves as seriously
+as that such as <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek">the
+Star Trek frenchise</a>, the
+film
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Princess_Bride_%28film%29"><i>The Princess Bride</i></a>,
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friends">the <i>Friends</i> television
+show</a>,
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffy_the_Vampire_Slayer_%28TV_series%29">the Buffy frenchise</a>,
+and the Greek mythology. These are just some of the major influenences on
+Rindolfism, but there are many, many more.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Moreover, Rindolfism is not static - it is <b>dynamic</b> and constantly
+evolving. Since an early age, I have commited myself to be an idealist, but
+my idealism has constantly changed, and my idealism today is very very
+different. Furthermore, as great philosophy is (including my own original
+or mostly original philosophy), it just provides general guidelines for
+behaviour, and a man or a woman eventually should know to use reason and
+judgement in leading his life. Making a bad decision and performing a wrong
+action, is often better than not doing anything at all.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Finally, Rindolfism does not need fans and followers as much as it needs
+people who will either:
+</p>
+
+<ol>
+<li>
+<p>
+Criticise it.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+Build upon it - including mix and match it with other things.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+Suggest improvements.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+Try to compete with it.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+</ol>
+
+<p>
+I am also not planning to write a complete summary of Rindolfism any time soon,
+because like I said, it is constantly evolving, and because I don't see
+the point. If interested, you can read <a href="$(ROOT)/philosophy/">my
+essays</a> (some of which are somewhat outdated),
+<a href="$(ROOT)/humour/">my works of humour and fiction</a> (which are
+arguably both more serious, and not as funny as my essays),
+<a href="$(ROOT)/me/blogs/">the posts on my blogs</a>,
+<a href="http://twitter.com/shlomif">my Twitter feed</a>, and other Internet
+social media outlets where I have posted stuff.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+For some attempts at codifying Rindolfism see:
+</p>
+
+<ul>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+<a href="$(ROOT)/philosophy/the-eternal-jew/">“The Eternal Jew”</a> - an old
+essay, but still mostly pertinent.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+<a href="$(ROOT)/philosophy/philosophy/putting-all-cards-on-the-table-2013/">“Putting
+all the Cards on the Table (2013)”</a> - a newer essay - relevant for 2013,
+about which I received mixed opinions, may not be for everyone and that may
+require a lot of revamping.
