    Donald Trump

    I think you need some work on your punctuation as you are running your ideas into each other, or not when maybe they should. Would you be a "bigot against them" if you merely disagreed with their political views or do those untrustworthy words--whatever they are--also need to come into play? I'm having a hard time getting your "racism" that Joe is on about. In the quote it's too weak. Please restate it in stronger, more lucid and prideful terminology. Intellectually socialism is nothing anymore. Socialism is just the frosting on fascism which is the core of all anti-freedom ideologies including Nazism, communism and the classical fascism of Benito M.'s time. If you're into socialism, like many millions are--especially Europeans--you're into the frosting. That is, your head's in the frosting (intellectual) and the rest of you (body or cultural) is down below. I know, I know--it tastes good, but I'm not eating it. --Brant sorry to be the beater of bad news

    Ayn Rand And The End Of Love

    The context of this discussion is the world of AS. Not back and forth that world to this one. In that world there was an overt strike encompassing one generation start to finish. In that world Francisco gives up Dagny to go on strike? In this world none of that would be so/ is so. A higher level of abstraction is needed to bridge the gap. --Brant

    Ayn Rand And The End Of Love

    The blood of tyrants . . . Semantics--respecting what is and isn't "murder"--is a poor foundation for an argument. So, what they were doing to Galt was legal and therefore proper and what Dagny et. al did to them was illegal and improper? There wasn't, btw, any state left to speak of. You need more of a focus on morality. There is right and wrong respecting the law and right and wrong respecting morality. They need to be integrated prior to a more general evaluation. You jumped the gun. --Brant

    Fake News

    I guess they, themselves, aren't "American people." I guess they see themselves floating over it all objectifying their observations and telling all and sundry The Truth! --Brant "The Truth" goes marching on

    Ayn Rand And The End Of Love

    Murder consequent to an act of war isn't murder. She killed an enemy combatant who would not submit. In real life there would be no conversation except if necessary to get close enough to kill the guard. But Rand believed in yammer, yammer, yammer. At the end of We the Living the guard does the killing. So at the end of Rand's magnum opus it's reversed. That's no coincidence. I do not have the slightest idea how to improve on how Rand handled Dagny's killing the guard. The whole novel is steeped in bigger-than-life artificiality. The same can be said about Galt's speech. The asseverating moralizing--lecturing--simply has to be done the way she And it has to be long. --Brant
