Quote from: Slim on November 06, 2018, 14:36:16 pm[9 years later]Where has capitalism been left to its own devices?I don't view capitalism as perfect, but it has lifted millions of people out of poverty, and made millions more extremely comfortable. I don't know of an alternative philosophy with similar powers to sustain humanity, and in any case - capitalism is the natural human condition. It's what happens when people are allowed to thrive, and it can only be defeated by tyranny.

Quote from: döm on November 07, 2018, 23:39:35 pmI think her view of human nature was wrong in that although there is undoubtedly a basic drive for self-interest, there is also a basic drive for the collective and for people to help each other.
Quote from: Slim on August 25, 2020, 11:04:29 amI'm no expert on the Philosophy of Ayn Rand and only made it through one chapter of one of her books before I got bored, but that's pretty much my own position if it isn't hers. Hence there should be no need for an overarching state to manage these things.
