America’s Tragic Contradiction … From the Start

“From her start, America was torn by the clash of her political system with the altruist morality. Capitalism and altruism are incompatible; they are philosophical opposites; they cannot co-exist in the same man or in the same society. Today, the conflict has reached its ultimate climax; the choice is clear-cut: either a new morality of rational self-interest, with its consequences of freedom, justice, progress and man’s happiness on earth—or the primordial morality of altruism, with its consequences of slavery, brute force, stagnant terror and sacrificial furnaces.” — AYN RAND

Your life either belongs to YOU, or to others. If your life belongs to you, then profit, ownership, capitalism, free speech, gun rights and minimal government make sense. If your life belongs to others, then socialism, self-sacrifice, unlimited government, masks, lockdowns, gulags and tax rates of 60 or 90 percent all make sense. It’s one or the other, people. MAKE UP YOUR DAMN MINDS BEFORE WE LOSE EVERYTHING.
