The source of [the governing generation's] lack of respect for the public realm is very specific. It is the self-absorbed narcissism of the “selfish is good” philosophy of Ayn Rand and her ideological acolytes combined with the Libertarian libel that there is no such thing as the “common good.” [....] This ideology denies the fundamental reason that societies organize communities in the first place -- to respond to needs people cannot meet individually.
