It’s Ayn Rand week at the Quote of the Day. Rand has fallen seriously out of fashion due to libertarianism’s current unpopularity. But I think she has made several valuable points. See what you think.
“The goal of the ‘liberals’ – as it emerges from the record of the past decades – was to smuggle this country into welfare statism by means of single, concrete, specific measures, enlarging the power of the government a step at a time, never permitting these steps to be summed up into principles, never permitting their direction to be identified or the basic issue to be named. Thus, statism was to come, not by vote or by violence, but by slow rot – by a long process of evasion and epistemological corruption, leading to a fait accompli.”
