Rand on Thanksgiving

by Jason Pye

I know this is a little late, but I just came across this quote from Ayn Rand:

“Thanksgiving is a typically American holiday…The lavish meal is a symbol of the fact that abundant consumption is the result and reward of production.”

Only Rand can put capitalism in this kind of perspective.
