    Objectivism is pretty much "fight everyone at all times forever"

    Out of context nothing. I don't understand that part in relation to what preceded it, because they're contradictory.

    Nothing about objectivism disregards the rights of others, nor does it seek to violate them. It even advocates combating them if that's what floats your boat.
    I disagree; by abdicating all social responsibility, that's a level of willful disregard for others that if exercised en masse would strip the rights of many.

    That was what I took from what you wrote, but if you look at the sentence in question, it's not entirely clear.

    In addition to that, I'm not persecuted in the US or falsely accused of anything.
    Why would anywhere else be better?

    I'm not aware of friends handling discrimination and other societal problems.

    Things like discrimination have a tendency to work themselves out over time.
