Quote of the Day

by Brad Warbiany

And yet another Ayn Rand quote (from Atlas Shrugged):

For centuries, the battle of morality was fought between those who claimed that your life belongs to God and those who claimed that it belongs to your neighbors – between those who preached that the good is self-sacrifice for the sake of ghosts in heaven and those who preached that the good is self-sacrifice for the sake of incompetents on earth. And no one came to say that your life belongs to you and that the good is to live it.

Pretty much sums up the difference between Conservatives, Liberals, and Libertarians, huh?

    Like I said… Horrible Novel, AMAZING philosophical tract ;-)

    My rating of Atlas Shrugged is mediocre. It’s at least as good as some of Charles Dickens’ novels that pushed moralities via boring plots and cardboard characterization.
