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 majority of those who are loosely identified by the term ‘liberals’ are afraid to let themselves discover that what they advocate is statism. They want to keep all the advantages and effects of capitalism, while destroying the cause, and they want to establish statism without its necessary effects. They do not want to know or to admit that they are the champions of dictatorship and slavery.”
