The PUNK PATRIOT INTERVIEWS AYN RAND
I wish Asher would do a series of videos lampooning Ayn Rand's sophomoric novel, "Atlas Shrugged", that tells the true story of what happens when John Galt and his sociopath friends troop off to the mountains to form their own uber-nation of over-achieving narcissists...
Which society do you think is more likely to collapse into choas & ruin?
A large nation comprised of social beings who believe in some form of the collective good, the Common Wealth, who believe that cooperation and caring for others is one of the highest expressions of the human soul?
Or a much smaller nation comprised of elitists who care for only their individual selves, who compete viciously in a cutthroat race to create material wealth exclusively for their personal benefit, regardless of whether doing so requires everyone else to live in abject poverty?
