The Tough Ayn Rand



  1. Am I the only one who gets choked up at 7:40 mark?

    "In a free market no one can become a Monopolist. All Monopolists are created by a special privilege from government. It's only by an act of government that you can keep competitors out of your field. The power you hold, as an Industrialist, is not the power to use force, it's the power of producing something of value. It's the people who literally control you (the Producer) because every purchase is a vote in favor of some businessman and, in a way, against others. It's the public that decides what they want to buy and what they pass up."

    That is poetry!

  2. Are there any interviewers like this any longer? Without necessarily agreeing with everything he said, I thought he sparred well, pushed hard and allowed Rand to speak. Compare this with today's interviewers who run three minute segments, talk over their guests and don't show up with much of an intellectual arsenal.
