Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal


The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world's collapse. This is the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constitutes a major philosophic revolution. In her series of essays, she presents her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism. Hide synopsis

Required reading for the President and all his czars


Heady, philosophical text

Even though I find myself disagreeing with most of the author's conclusions, it is a great text to read and sharpen my own arguments for my own beliefs. I find the essays elightening, and a wonderful way to understand some of her other works such as the Fountainhead.
