I'm very happy to have landed in the Gulch...and I am looking forward to bettering myself and learning with you.
I came across a video on YouTube. Altas Shrugged: John Galt Speech which linked me to you.
Although there are many sentiments which I would like to share one stands above the others to demonstrate what I believe and ultimately why I am here.
“Who is the public? What does it hold as its good? There was a time when men believed that ‘the good’ was a concept to be defined by a code of moral values and that no man had the right to seek his good through the violation of the rights of another. If it is now believed that my fellow men may sacrifice me in any manner they please for the sake of whatever they deem to be their own good, if they believe that they may seize my property simply because they need it – well, so does any burglar. There is only this difference: the burglar does not ask me to sanction his act.”
-Hank Rearden’s Trial
I come like a bear awakening from a deep sleep; and I come hungry.
