Atlas Shrugged

This is my next book to read, I found this quote by Ayn Rand from a 1964 interview with Playboy magazine (see, some people read it for the stories) regarding society of the time.

"What we have today is not a capitalist society, but a mixed economy – that is, a mixture of freedom and controls, which, by the presently dominant trend, is moving toward dictatorship. The action in Atlas Shrugged takes place at a time when society has reached the stage of dictatorship. When and if this happens, that will be the time to go on strike, but not until then,"

Makes one think then, doesn't it?

Just my thoughts for the day.

Go out, read a book, plant a tree, think free…
