Hypocrites Enslaved by Looters And Moochers

File the following under "the timeless wisdom of Ayn Rand"...

Rand herself called altruism a "basic evil" and referred to those who perpetuate the system of taxation and redistribution as "looters" and "moochers". She wrote in her book "The Virtue of Selfishness" that accepting any government controls is "delivering oneself into gradual enslavement".

With this truth presented by the sage Mrs. Rand, I, Lester Nation, am in 100 percent agreement. Now, it may be true that Mrs. Rand - later in life - applied for and was accepted into the social security and Medicare programs - thereby making her one of the Takers she so despised. But surely one cannot expect a person to adhere to their own philosophies that prohibit looting and mooching when they get sick? Of course not! That is the time, of course, for such philosophies to be chucked out the window...

Rand... believed that the scientific consensus on the dangers of tobacco was a hoax. By 1974, the two-pack-a-day smoker, then 69, required surgery for lung cancer. And it was at that moment of vulnerability that she succumbed to the lure of collectivism.

Sure, one could argue that since she had paid into these systems, Rand was entitled to her money back. But that is the entire point of these programs! You pay in, and you get your ENTITLEMENT!

So, using the logic of Rand, was she a moocher and looter who was delivering herself into enslavement by accepting government assistance? You bet your sweet bippy she was! But this is why I love Rand so much... she was a huge hypocrite - JUST LIKE ME!

  1. Les better watch it, Ayn is ogling him with amorous eyes. I hope he's got some condoms in his wallet. I heard she was pretty wild back in the day...

  2. I'd hit that. BTW, when I implied on my other blog that "Derv" sent me some inappropriate messages I was totally lying. "Derv" never sent me any such messages. Derv is an upstanding blogger who I actually have a great deal of respect for. I often kid about him being a hypocrite and a liar, but that is total BS. Regarding Derv, the opposite is actually the truth. Derv is a very honest person, I must regretfully admit. What I dislike about him is his tendency to call me out on my lying and hypocrisy.

    Devious is a liar, he should rename this blossom to Lying Devious.
