Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture
Submitted by Kyrel Zantonavitch on Wed, 2012-08-15 13:26

Ayn Rand was a brilliant philosophical innovator. People of low quality who oppose her tend to rather pathetically say that her ideas are both old and false. But this is self-refuting.

Chris (The Fist) Trotter. Squeezing Freedom Until Its Pips Squeak.

______________________________________________

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.

George Orwell – 1984

Chris (The Fist) Trotter, socialist political commentator, is quickly becoming New Zealand’s most useful, ‘useful idiot’, in that often he will let that urbane, oh-so-reasonable, caring, fiction of his image drop and let us see the mean-spirited, malevolent heart of the coercive statist that slouches beneath.
