"I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."
The above quote, that of John Galt as penned by Ayn Rand in her best selling 1957 epic novel Atlas Shrugged, defines in one brief sentence the moral code by which free men and women ought live their lives.
Perhaps if more of our congressmen and women, as well as our senators and presidents, understood and lived by the moral code of John Galt our nation would not be in the terrible mess it finds itself.
It is in the hope our nation can find its way once again that Rational Nation USA posts the series "This is John Galt Speaking." The moral and ethical foundation by which a proper and just society can best live and prosper can be found in this series.
The social experiment that modern day socialism and statism is representative of, has proven to be a moral and ethical failure. As nations around the world continue to seek to emulate these irrational ethical behaviors the world will continue to sink further and further into the abyss.
And now, "This is John Galt Speaking." part #5.
