LeonydusJohnson: "Under a system of collectivism, men have to gang up on one another - and whoever has the biggest gang at the moment, has all the rights, while the loser has none. Any man can be an absolute master or a helpless slave, according to the size of his gang..." - Ayn Rand

felcaron: In "The Age of Mediocrity" (1981), Ayn Rand refers to the so-called "Moral Majority" as "Halloween-like creatures" who exist "in the dark, unventilated corners of history" and come out in periods of philosophical default. Perfect description for the Ye-Fuentes-Jones trio.

AscendedLight: Socialism is evil and capitalism is good? Do socialism which means being an altruist, is evil? According to the psychopathic Zionist bitch Ayn rand?! I guess self interest aka being a selfish amoral immoral moron is healthy

AynRandSpeaks: Ayn Rand ON INTEGRITY: Integrity does not consist of loyalty to one's subjective whims, but of loyalty to rational principles.

JosephZacker: Ayn Rand was terrible

exaeroman: Great debate. As good as I'd hoped for. The Ayn Rand guy carried the day. One exception. The Randian has no problem with concentrated power in the hands of private individuals. I do. Monopolies have the power to abuse the public. I want government empowered to compel break ups.

demarcus24me: The Ayn Rand Reader QCSJ0DK

I_AM_AYN_RAND: The contract between two individuals alone ought to be enough. If you have a plumber come to your house and fix your systems and he does a bad job he won't have a job for very long. It is only the government that can do terrible work and still get paid over time.

Normal_n_Online: It's so funny reading these eulogies for Sears that don't mention that it collapsed because the CEO was an Ayn Rand freak who was obsessed with turning it into an internally hypercapitalist free-market where each department had to compete with each other

I_AM_AYN_RAND: Unfortunately, the American populace often confuses what is moral with what should be law. These things are not the same. According to objectivism, we should allow a lot of things I deem as immoral because they do not violate rights.

LPNational: Biden's student debt "relief" program was nothing more than a scheme to transfer debts to all taxpayers.

I_AM_AYN_RAND: today I was asked if I would give to a charity in town. I had to hold back the laughter before I told them. Only the free market can solve their problems. They are better off getting a venture capitalist to create a product that solves the problem than asking poor old me for $.

Nikos_17: 'As boys, we dream of being John Galt or Howard Roark. As men, most of us move on. If we don’t, that’s a problem.' What a betrayal to one's best self to openly admit that idealism and a higher vision should only be a juvenile fantasy. Sad.

NerdyCalixto: One thing that got me about Ayn Rand. She ridiculed Dale Carnegie and Napoleon Hill and all those as being second handers. But created businessmen so unlikeable they'd never make any deals and be actually successful. Arrogant jerks who couldn't negotiate a deal worth a damn.

sterbuleac: “The nation which had once held the creed that greatness is achieved by production, is now told that it is achieved by squalor” Ayn Rand - Atlas Shrugged

Drowning is not so pitiful
 by Emily Dickinson


Drowning is not so pitiful
As the attempt to rise
Three times, 'tis said, a sinking man
Comes up to face the skies,
And then declines forever
To that abhorred abode,
