This isn’t a formal statement, but a quote – one that is inherent to everything you’ll ever read on this website. The discussions on this website aren’t meant to be comfortable or politically correct. I deliberately seek out the touchy topics – race, abortion, climate change, gun control, terrorism, etc. They need to be discussed, because right now, they are nothing more than tools for politicians to manipulate us all.
“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.” – Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
