Rands writing is definitely presenting socialism as opposed to communism as nobody has had their property confiscated. Who knows at the rate things are going though.I really hope you guys talk about the mandates. I haven’t studied enough about socialism or communism to how clearly they connect to this..
The mandates to me are a prime example of the averagecation of our country and everybody gets a trophy mindset.
All trains at 60mph and limited to 60 cars...why? Because not all trains can go 100mph with 100 cars like the John Galt line and we wouldn’t things to be unfair.
Limiting steel production based on what other plants can do? Another fair share ideal.m
I imagine the outcome will be that the producers who are profiting by offering a better product for less money will no longer have reason to do so and as a result the entire country will suffer.
Very much reminds me of this thread discussing Elizabeth Warren wanting to break up Facebook essentially because she doesn't like how big they are. Her next targets? Amazon, Google etc. I’ve never seen an argument for breaking up these companies that didn’t boil down to “they’re too big, that’s why and it isn’t fair!” They are bigger because they are better, faster, easier, cheaper and the market has responded by rewarding them.
The only difference in this book so far is the figurative gun to the head of the country’s most successful businesses, whereas our current government hasn’t taken it that far...yet.
