Thought For the Day: Collectivism Holds That Individuals Have No Rights

“Collectivism holds that the individual has no rights, that his life and work belong to the group (to ‘society,’ to the tribe, the state, the nation) and that the group may sacrifice him at its own whim to its own interests. The only way to implement a doctrine of that kind is by means of brute force — and statism has always been the political corollary of collectivism.” — Ayn Rand (1905-1982)

Remember HRC and Obama making the case that business successes in America were not the result of individuals but were provided to the hardworking men and women who earned these? That it was just luck?  You should.  And then take a look at what that actually means.  I cannot speak for any one but myself truly but for myself that is a complete rejection of reality and particularly anathema to the American way of life.
