How libertarianism helps the poor

  Author: Matt Zwolinski

Everybody knows that libertarians are greedy capitalists who favor the maximization of profit above all else. “Taxation is theft!” they cry, but the exploitation of the working classes fails to elicit any similar moral outrage. Libertarians, everybody knows, care about the rich to the utter neglect of the poor and vulnerable.

But everybody is wrong.

Svima je poznato da su libertarijanci pohlepni kapitalisti koji favorizuju maksimizaciju profita iznad svega drugog. "Oporezivanje je krađa!" uzvikuju oni, dok recimo eksploatacija radničke klase u njima ne izaziva nikakvu sličnu moralnu bjes. Svi znaju da libertarijanci brinu o bogatima uz krajnje zanemarivanje siromašnih i ugroženih.

Ayn Rand - Faith vs Reason

“It is not right, it is not proper to man to take anything on faith. Religion is a matter of faith. You accept a religion emotionally or because you were born to it. You have not chosen it rationally.” An excerpt from Phil Donahue show where Ayn Rand talks about faith and reason. Full interview transcript available here. Source: Aubrey YouTube channel.

Ayn Rand: When you accept such an important issue as the creation of the universe on faith you are destroying your confidence and the validity of your own mind. It has to be either reason or faith.

Ayn Rand - vjera nasuprot razuma

“To nije u redu, nije ispravno za čovjeka da prihvata išta na osnovu vjere. Religija je stvar vjere. Vi prihvatate religiju emotivno ili zato što ste rođeni u njoj. Vi je niste odabrali racionalno.” Isječak iz Phil Donahue šoua gdje Ayn Rand govori o vjeri i razumu. Cijeli transkript na engleskom jeziku dostupan ovdje. Izvor: Aubrey YouTube kanal.
