Ayn Rand Wrote About 2023 in 1957

It’s official. Back in 1957, Ayn Rand was writing about America and the world of 2023. With stunning accuracy. It wasn’t psychic power. It was a grasp of the logical power of philosophical ideas — specifically, the toxic ideas now taking hold of our culture.

“When you have made evil the means of survival, do not expect men to remain good. Do not expect them to stay moral and lose their lives for the purpose of becoming the fodder of the immoral. Do not expect them to produce, when production is punished and looting rewarded. Do not ask, ‘Who is destroying the world?’ You are.”

– Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
