If we were to call a national strike of the producers à la Atlas Shrugged, who in today’s world would be the people we miss, like John Galt? Where are the Dagney Taggerts, the Hank Reardons, and others?
Are there any producers out there, that are so important and have such fertile minds, that we as a society could not do without them?
I am unable to name anyone, but I know that is merely my ignorance. I really wonder when people will say that they no longer wish to be slaves to the looters.
Since when is what we receive based on our need, instead of our productivity? My productivity is being penalized by those who are rewarded for their ability to demonstrate need, and nothing else.
What we are seeing, is the agonal breaths of the death of capitalism, merit based rewards, and democratic ideals for the sake of those who would feel morally superior to us because they feel for those in need and seek to satisfy their pity by the use of the producers’ resources in time and treasure.
