Why Societies Fail
"All these political systems [ancient Egypt, classical democratic Athens, The welfare state known as the Roman Empire, Feudal Europe, Nazi Germany, etc.] were expressions of the altruist-collectivist ethics—and their common characteristic is the fact that society stood above the moral law, as an omnipotent, sovereign whim worshiper. Thus, politically, all these systems were variants of an amoral society.”
And of course when she says ‘moral law,’ Ms. Rand does not refer to your misguided moocher definition of morality, but true moral ethics, which, as any good objectivist knows, means to put your own desires above the desires of others.
So remember kids, the problem with the Nazis was that they were not not selfish enough.
