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.

OK, Smartypants…

"Wait," you might ask if you read that last post in a public setting or with someone else around, "how come no one else saw her then?  You can’t scare me!"

Well when you read that post Ms. Rand was also simultaneously standing behind that other person or persons, and since the same matter cannot simultaneously exist in more than one moment of space-time at the same exact instant, for that person you think should have seen Ms. Rand behind you, Ms. Rand was actually standing behind them, so of course they did not see her.  It’s sort of a Schroedinger’s Cat situation, only a little bit different.  

Don’t you try and get smart with me now; I’m just telling it like it is.  If you can’t handle it, watch out.  You just might be a moocher. 

Shhh…Don’t Look Now, But

Ayn Rand is totally standing right behind you.  Over your right shoulder.

No!  Don’t turn around!


Well, you just missed her.  



She also watches you sleep sometimes.  

More About Ducks

Ms. Rand hates ducks. Well really she hates most things, but for some reason ducks are right up there with Native Americans.

Weird Rail Org Bylaws

No ducks shall be allowed entry into the Rail Org without (1) an adequately amazing screenplay exhibiting a keen understanding and glorification of Objectivist principles, or (2) being really rich.

A Truly Moral Woman

Ms. Rand once said, “I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”

Strangely enough, shortly after Ms. Rand made this statement, Mr. Rand and Mr. Nathan Blumenthal (see also, here, here, here, here, and here) were both really pissy for a while.

A Little Late for Valentine’s Day, But…

Whatever happens, know that Ayn Rand will always love you.

Or rather she would, if the concept of love was not a commie conspiracy.  She might be willing to bone you though.  Maybe, if you are not a moocher.  

You promise you’re not a moocher or looter don’t you?

Another Rejected Submission

Once again, I have the sad duty of rejecting a submission from what I am told is a sexy lady with a hotmail account.

While I am sure Ms. Rand would surely have approved your devil may care attitude towards the opinions of others and your willingness to claim your sexiness for yourself, I regret to inform you that Ms. Rand was not in fact a “little asian girl,” though she totally could have been if she set her mind to it.

Don’t be discouraged by the thoroughness of our peer review system though.  Maybe next time.

Respecting the Rights of Others

"To violate man’s rights means to compel him to act against his own judgment, or to expropriate his values. Basically, there is only one way to do it: by the use of physical force."

—Ayn Rand

Which is why mind control is totally OK.  

Ms. Rand really dodged a bullet there when she discovered Optimal Producer Level 11.

OP 17

All you get upon reaching Optimal Producer Level 17 is the ability to grow extra toes.  Or thumbs.

You can grow them anywhere you like though.  So there’s that.
