In honor of Memorial Day:

"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived." George S. Patton Jr.

My dad told me this when I was young, "muscles are fun but I got a gun" I think that's a quote to live by

"As democracy is perfected, the office of President represents, more and
more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day
the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and
the White House will be occupied by a downright moron."

--- H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

The great thing about dictators is, you have to know, if you get on a soapbox with them, you’re gonna lose, because they have a way of spellbinding with their oratory. But if you can reduce them to ridicule, then you’re way ahead.

“From the smallest necessity to the highest religious abstraction, from the wheel to the skyscraper, everything we are and everything we have comes from one attribute of man -- the function of his reasoning mind.”

“We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality”
-Ayn Rand-

In the war between individualism and collectivism, we just reached a climax. Obama has openly denied individual achievement, spitting in the face of every individual who ever had a creative thought. Obama has ventured to say straight out what only the theoreticians of collectivism have scribbled before: there is no individual achievement. "You did not build" what you built. What appears to be your achievement is somehow the achievement of the collective--especially its representative on earth: the government.

-Harry Binswanger-
“Ayn Rand is history’s preeminent champion of capitalism. Who else had the courage to say that free markets are not simply powerful engines of wealth creation, but one-hundred percent moral—moral because they free the individual to pursue his own goals, wealth, and happiness?

“Instead of apologizing for opposing America’s colossal regulatory-entitlement state, the way virtually all Republicans do, Rand unflinchingly identified it as a moral corruption that sacrifices the individual to the collective. She didn’t seek to reform it but to end it.

“Ryan was right when he said that ‘Ayn Rand, more than anyone else, did a fantastic job of explaining . . . the morality of individualism.’ But what he and the rest of us must learn is individualism’s full meaning. According to this distinctively American idea, the government’s only function is to protect the freedom of every individual. Nothing short of this principle will end the unlimited power that Big Government now wields over our lives.”
-Dan Watkins-

" Atlas gives the American spirit a philosophic defense it has never had. The American spirit often has been attacked as atomistic, cruel, and materialistic. Atlas blasts any such notion. It shows that capitalism is a win-win system where all individuals are free to pursue their happiness. It shows that it is right for individuals to be concerned with their own happiness. And it shows that those who seek to "tread on you" – to control your life, redistribute your wealth, and mortgage your future – are morally wrong. "
-Dan Watkins-

"I am not primarily an advocate of capitalism, but of egoism; and I am not primarily an advocate of egoism, but of reason. If one recognizes the supremacy of reason and applies it consistently, all the rest follows."

-Ayn Rand-

" If Ryan is a man who takes ideas seriously, as numerous supporters and detractors claim, this is an attitude he would have encountered on every page of Rand’s writings.

But how as an adult do you sustain the conviction that the truth matters, in the face of constant calls to compromise your views and give in?

You need to achieve, Rand argues, a radical independence of mind. Independence does not mean doing whatever you feel like doing but rather forging principles and using them to choose your actions rationally, carefully, scientifically. Independence means refusal to subordinate your ideas or values to the “public interest,” as too many secularists demand, or to the “glory of God,” as too many religionists demand. It means refusal to grant obedience to any authority.

The independent mind instead embraces reason as an absolute. “The noblest act you have ever performed,” declares the hero of Atlas Shrugged, “is the act of your mind in the process of grasping that two and two make four.” Rand meant it. "

-Onkar Ghate-
" Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it . Do not count on them . Leave them alone . "

-Ayn Rand-

Just as man can’t succeed by defying reality, so a nation can’t, or a country, or a globe.
