I decided today to post a few videos that shows how far we have “progressed” from the founders’ belief in individual liberties and freedom to our current collective state of mind that so many on the left seem to embrace. The first video is of Ayn Rand being interviewed by Mike Wallace in 1959. The seeds for this destructive collective mindset we’re witnessing today involving the union protests across the nation were already planted in our society over 50 years ago. She understood how dangerous this desire to move the nation towards collectivism was and the damage it would inflict on our republic. She even saw it potentially leading to economic ruin and dictatorship. It’s just over nine minutes long; but it’s definitely worth it.
It’s pretty remarkable just how spot-on she was. On a side note, Mike Wallace championed the collective position and lost. The next videos contain everything Ayn Rand warned us.
Here’s one we’re running as our featured video of the week.
And finally this one.
In 234 years we gone from, ” We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” to pushing people down in the street over collective bargaining rights and pensions. We are indeed living in a village of useful idiots. We must stay the course and get back what we have lost….our constitution.
Liberty forever, freedom for all!
