Ayn Rand's Views On Vietnam and What They Would Have Been On Iraq
Submitted by Bill Visconti on Thu, 2007-06-07 04:49
From listening to a number of Ayn Rand's comments about the Vietnam War in the ARI lectures recently released at their website I noticed a number of things:
* She opposed the war as an exercise in self-sacrifice.
To extapolate from that on what she would have thought of Iraq today, I'm guessing:
* She would have opposed the war as a useless exercise of self-sacrifice for exactly the same reasons she did with Vietnam.
In essence she would take pretty much the same positions that ARI has taken today.
