Beethoven's sublime Piano Concerto No. 5 (the Emperor) -- a stellar live performance by Krystian Zimerman with the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Leonard Bernstein, who based the song Somewhere in his West Side Story on the exquisite second movement. The final moments here are beyond electrifying:

"As a child, I saw a glimpse of the pre-World War 1 world, the last afterglow of the most radiant cultural atmosphere in human history ... The existential atmosphere (which was then being destroyed by Europe's philosophical trends and political systems) still held a benevolence that would be incredible to the men of today, i.e., a smiling, confident good will of man to man and man to life." (Ayn Rand, The Romantic Manifesto).

In my personal topography of hell, among the lowest rungs is that reserved for the armchair quarterbackers such as Ronroids (and, of course, overtly leftist low-lifes) who diss the toppling of Saddam, in a flagrant flouting of the principle that a free or semi-free country has the right, albeit not the duty, to liberate a slave pen.

Producer John Aglialoro and Atlas Society founder David Kelley discuss the election ...
Aglialoro: It's no surprise that, after 55 years since Atlas Shrugged was published, Ayn Rand is still being attacked with total disdain by the socialist left.
Kelley: John, we knew up front that the movie reviewers, who overwhelmingly subscribe to the socialist left ideology, would trash Atlas Shrugged Part 2, despite the obvious improvements in cinematic quality.

Folk here know I set little store by the indices for economic freedom touted by various think tanks, some of which have ludicrously awarded PLAB*-NZ gold medals in the past, but I've no doubt there are sound empirical reasons for the drop in America's place from 10th in 2011 (measuring data up to 2009) to 18th this year (up to 2010) in the Cato/Fraser rankings:
The reasons can no doubt be distilled into one term: "Obamarx," subsuming the avalanche of regulations, the mountains of debt, the war on coal and oil, the cronyism, the de facto nationalizations (including medicine), the rampaging Nanny Statism perpetrated by The Filth as part of his agenda to "fundamentally transform" America. PLAB-NZ is ranked third.
