Ayn Rand interviewed by James Day 1974


Recommended Posts

And here’s something good from the VHS middens, the 1974 interview with James Day. He’s a sympathetic, unchallenging interviewer, so this one lacks the fireworks of the Wallace and Donahue interviews, and I think it’s a much lower voltage affair than the Johnny Carson one, maybe for lack of a live audience. Far as I can tell this is the first time it’s been on YouTube, and it certainly hasn’t been available for a long time. Laissez Faire Books used to sell it on VHS, but we’re talking 20 years ago.

The subject matter is pretty wide ranging of course, but the most time is spent on religion and esthetics. There are some nice zingers. Sorry about the picture quality, alas my VCR belongs in a nursing home. Enjoy.
