“From each according to his ability…”

August 16, 2010

Don't know what this is about? Read Part III of "Atlas Shrugged."

Here is a link to several quotes from Chapter Ten of Part II of Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand. I was just listening to the audiobook of it again and realized that Jeff Allen (the tramp on the Taggart Comet), in telling the story of the demise of Twentieth Century Motors, gives one of the easiest-to-understand explanations of socialism and its evils I’ve ever heard. It’s best if you can read the whole thing, but if not, at least check out the quotes on Wikiquotes.
