Mises on Rand

You have the courage to tell the masses what no politician told them: you are inferior and all the improvements in your conditions which you simply take for granted you owe to the effort of men who are better than you.

Ludwig von Mises, praising Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged

  1. Hi, this post reminds me of old times!

  2. I AM A PESSIMIST ABOUT ANY CHANGE TOWARD A MARXIST GOVERNMENT IN AMERICA !!

    Because what we have here in USA IS REALLY A TYRANNY OF THE HUMAN TRASH WHO ARE THE PEOPLE WHO WILL VOTE FOR OBAMA AND MITT ROMNEY (HUMAN TRASH POLITICIANS) AGAINST THE MINORITY OF ELITES INDIVIDUALS LIKE CHRIS HEDGES, CHOMSKY, CINDY SHEEHAN, LARRY HOLMES, AMY GOODMAN, CYNTHIA MCKINNEY, JILL STEIN OF THE GREEN PARTY, ALEX JONES AND ALL THE AMERICANS OUT THERE WHO ARE FANS OF AMY GOODMAN, ALEX JONES AND HAVE COMMON SENSE, FEELINGS, LOVE, GOODNESS AND MORALITY. BUT WE THE AMERICANS WITH COMMON SENSE AND MORALITY ARE A MINORITY !!

    This is according to a comment you made that US voters and US citizens vote for capitalism, vote for neoliberalism, vote for privatized universities, vote for dollar-devaluations, vote for NAFTA, vote for privatized health care services, vote for no rise of minimum living wage. And do not vote for high labor workers conditions.

    IN OTHER WORDS AMERICANS VOTERS HAVE REFUSED TO VOTE FOR WEALTH, HEALTH AND HAPPINESS. BUT INSTEAD ARE VERY SUPPORTERS AND ENABLERS OF POVERTY, DOLLAR DEVALUATIONS, INFLATION DISEASES AND SADNESS !!

    WHAT A SUICIDAL COUNTRY THE WHOLE POPULATION OF THE USA IS !!

    THE COUNTRY NEEDS A SELF-HELP PSYCHOLOGIC REVOLUTION FIRST BEFORE A POLITICAL SOCIALIST REVOLUTION !!

  3. Yuo have to admire Mises on having the guts to come right out and admit to being an overprivilaged shitbag. A characteristic that is fairly consistant amoungst those who praise Rand.

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
