        That ain't right!

        PS- Nice vid on Stephen Baldwin. He sounds pretty smart. I do recall hearing that whole family was intelligent.

            So, if we're programmed to seek to elevate ourselves over others then wouldn't that include using whatever-means-necessary to ensure the bottom stay on the bottom? How do the John Galts of the world keep their power if their workers are free to move on up?
            Rand was very anti-power. It was never about power. It was entirely about liberty and attacking those in power who sought to obstruct it.

              Yep. Rojo is just trolling. Either that or he's off his rocker.
              Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

                  From reading Rojo's posts I think he/she is trolling so I wouldn't even trust that claim.

                      I'm not much of a fan but that's pretty damn funny
                      I might have to check this out. The capitalism as enemy of markets debate is interesting i.e when C-M-C became M-C-M.

                        No she's not. If you're the boss and I'm the employee, you have more power. She's not trying to abolish that. She's trying to clear social roadblocks that would prevent it.

                            She very much was. She was 100% against coercion, deception, and the use of force. You might want to pick up one of her books and give it a read sometime. This isn't even about whether I agree with her ideas or not, it's just simple fact.
