Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights, and Don Watkins, a fellow at ARC, have published a new article titled “Capitalism in No Way Created Poverty, It Inherited It.”

Why were most children made to work before the twentieth century? Is it because parents were sadistic and governments cruel? Hardly.

One could only imagine all the pantie wetting over at O-lying if Doug were to head ARI!

Really, I should be head of the ARI. I wouldn't write the material but I would direct it. ARI should make a list of the top Leftist arguments and systematically debunk them.

They did, in their book Free Market Revolution, which I reviewed glowingly.

Still, you should be head of the ARI for sure. Even the thought of all the horses that would send scattering is worth the price of admission.

You have revealed that there's an agenda to cosy up to parts of the Left deemed reachable. I didn't know that, though I was certainly beginning to infer it, as you know.

In their old building they used to get death threats from Islamofilth. Not much chance of that these days I suppose, given the pains they take to distinguish "Islamism" from Islam. But they also sought to spearhead a campaign for free speech in which they'd collaborate with the likes of Goblians where appropriate. Don't know what happened to that. Seems to me it should be perennial.

I'm very sorry to hear about Mr Auster by the way. I see him as an antidote to Airhead America, a cultural warrior of the type of our Mr Kocher, who is also very ill.

There used to be a soap opera called The Young and the Restless. America is now a soap opera/tragedy called The Young and the Brainless. The ARI are afraid to fight the cultural war against it.

I wish they would tackle the ubiquitous Leftist assertion:

"but corporate profits are at an all time high!"

Lindsay, could you use your clout to suggest to Brook et all that he should address THAT claim. The Left is trumpeting it from on high all over the place and OFilth himself is getting great mileage from it. Its part of the "America is ruled by the evil plutocrats/banks/conglomerates/multinationals/etc" meme. OH NO, the Conglomerates are coming. Hide the kids!!!

Really, I should be head of the ARI. I wouldn't write the material but I would direct it. ARI should make a list of the top Leftist arguments and systematically debunk them. They could do this too for Conservatism but that should not be their priority. But they need to be plugged in to the Left. Don't they understand this?
