Listened to a discussion about Rand and Atlas Shrugged.
Here are a few notes I made.
Ayn Rand – regulation breeds regulation, control breeds control.
Atlas Shrugged was written 50 years ago, now you are rereading it every day you read the newspaper.
The sanction of the victim is necessary.
If the only thing you are doing is keeping everyone alive to do nothing, then you have reached the pentacle of dystopia.
There are so many laws and regulations because they want everyone to be vulnerable.
Making people dependent does them no favors.
What happens when there is no more money to give people? What happens when the looting runs dry?
No culture that has started its slide into the abyss has ever pulled themselves back up. America may….just may, be the first.
