I’ve just re-read Anthem by Ayn Rand. What a misunderstood philosopher. Reality, reason and personal happiness are not evils. We do not live in order to serve others. Such a pity Maggie Thatcher, Ronald Reagan and others have perverted her ideas to create the greedy, grabby, unfair societies we live in. Why don’t our bankers and corporate financiers realise it is in their interest to have a contented, reasonably affluent and healthy society who are able to work well and buy their products and invest in their ideas? A wealthy oligarchy squatting like toads on a heap of suffering humanity is only a revolution waiting to happen.
