American writer and philosopher, Ayn Rand, was born in Russia in the first decade of the Twentieth Century.
She fled Leninist/Stalinist Russia in 1926, at the age of twenty-one, and came to America.
Here, she opposed the Democrat “nanny-state” from the beginning, and for good reason!
Naturally, she was mocked, denigrated, and threatened by smug liberals, just as she still is today!
And yet…
We’re seeing her predictions coming true, just as she said they would!
She criticized “false language” that was (and is) used to camouflage violent criminality on the part of depraved Communists, masquerading as “liberals,” “progressives,” “Democrats.”
“Silence is ‘violence’”
“Vandalism and theft are ‘reparation’”
“Orderly border maintenance is ‘racism’”
“Studying history, economics, even math, is ‘racist’”
“Lethal force is ‘non-lethal force’”
“Destructive, murderous rioting is ‘protesting’”
“Election fraud is ‘voter access’”
“Self-defense is ‘terrorism’”
“Capitalism is ‘slavery’”
“Communism is ‘freedom’”
… ad nauseam
We see now why clear vision so important.
Really ugly stuff is coming!
Never forget that 1 + 1 still equals 2
Our sanity depends on it!
“To the glory of mankind, there was, for the first and only time in history, a country of money- and I have no higher, more reverent, tribute to pay to America,
for this means:
A country of reason, justice, freedom, production, achievement. For the first time, man’s mind and money were set free, and there were no fortunes-by-conquest, but only fortunes-by-work, and instead of swordsmen and slaves, there appeared the real maker of wealth, the greatest worker, the highest type of human being, the self-made man, the American Industrialist.
When you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I choose, because it contains all the others, the fact that they were the people who created the phrase ‘to make money.’ No other language nor nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity, to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted, or obtained as a favor.
Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created. The words ‘to make money’ hold the essence of human morality.
Yet, these were the very words for which Americans were denounced by the rotted cultures of the looters’ continents. Now the looters’ credo has brought you to regard your proudest achievements as a hallmark of shame, your prosperity as guilt, your greatest men, the industrialists, as blackguards, and your magnificent factories as the product and property of muscular labor, the labor of whip-driven slaves, like the pyramids of Egypt.
The rotter, who simpers that he sees no difference between the power of the dollar and the power of the whip, ought to learn the difference on his own hide, as I think he will.
Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to be the tool by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of men.
Chains and whips, or dollars? Take your choice. There is no other, and your time is running out!”
Ayn Rand
