We were listening to John B. Wells on the 03_25_12 Coast to Coast AM radio show, & during the 4th hour of the show, he quoted this:
“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.”
Ayn Rand, “Atlas Shrugged”
This quote encouraged us to post this line & ask for your feedback regarding how this 1957 book can be related to 2012 America.
Remind you of the Tea Party or the Occupy movement? Have things always been this way? What can we do to correct the problems running rampant in America today? Or please just answer your own questions & leave your own comments below.
Thank you for your participation,
