Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand was published in 1957. That was the first time of many times I read the book. Next to the Bible this is the most read book. I would recommend this book highly to any person who has a mind and can think for themselves. It will sanction what every hard working man deserves.
This is a quote from the book:
“I work for nothing but my own profit—which I make by selling a product they need to men who are willing and able to buy it. . . . we deal as equals by mutual consent to mutual advantage and I am proud of every penny I have earned in this manner"
When the government decides to take my money without my consent and give it to an unequal who chooses not to earn it I have two choices: Submit to stealing or quit. I chose to quit. I now wonder how many business's did the same thing using bankruptcy as the method. When I hear my 40 year old son-in-law tell me he hates working because he is making his boss rich I just want to knock some sense into him. God what has this world come to? A fair days pay for a fair days work means nothing today. In this great country if you want to get rich that bad do it their way-open YOUR own business. His idea is to win the Power Ball. Government today, and my son-in-law's way of thinking will kill the greatest manufacturing country in the world.
During my three day mini vacation I gave some thought about how I could get some of my machines to the homestead. At least a mill and a lathe, and I could fix or make parts as needed. Damn I just can't leave it alone. The homestead is a retreat for survival, requiring just food, shelter, and water. With the understanding that less is more-blend in with nature-not stand out. Made by hand will be the new age. But I digress.
Read the book, and make your own conclusions. I need to get more seeds.
