On Freedom

Ayn Rand


‎"There is no such thing as 'the public interest' except as the sum of the interests of individual men. And the basic, common interest of all men—all rational men—is freedom. Freedom is the first requirement of 'the public interest'—not what men do when they are free, but that they are free. All their achievements rest on that foundation."
“The Fascist New Frontier,” The Ayn Rand Column, 111.

i remember hearing that Ayn Rosenbaum/Rand used to take young lovers, and wanted them to poo on her back. I remember thinking, what horrible self esteme she must have had.

Rich,
You must have an instant reply set for Ayn Rand. You sent me the same message on two days ago on a different quote of hers.

Sorry that you find it necessary to define everything about her by what she did with her lover.
