"The political philosophy of collectivism is based on a view of man as a congenital incompetent, a helpless, mindless creature who must be fooled and ruled by a special elite with some unspecified claim to superior wisdom and a lust for power." - Ayn Rand

    "congenital incompetent, a helpless, mindless creatures who must be fooled" Sounds like a great description of today's protesters, most don't know they are on the side of slavery.

    Deny a man Truth, unrevised knowledge of History and continually beat him down, not to mention, distracting him, making him ill and piling him on top of one another ruled by those less capable than him... gives you stupid.

    Give a man, Truth, knowledge and the liberty to pursue his happiness and he will out perform any entity the cosmos can throw at him.

      A mentor once explained the learning process: One that does not know that he does not know makes him unconsciously incompetent...then, give him a bit of knowledge and he becomes consciously incompetent...then once he knows a thing he becomes consciously competent and soon will be unconsciously competent.

      Think of how you learned to tie your shoe laces.
      It's the same process over and over again.

      So, to those less competent that rule over him, he should ask: Who the Hell ties YOUR shoe laces???
