Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue May 15, 2012, 04:19 PM

They are thieves and pirates, looters, moochers, parasites, and skimmers, and they want the money.

Where have you gone, John Galt? A nation turns its lonely eyes to you.

The infuriating irony of all these Randian sociopaths running around pretending to be wealth creators and excusing their monstrous selfishness on the grounds that theyíre the reason the rest of us arenít starving in the streets, as if thereíd be streets without them, is that virtually none of them is the sort of Galtian hero they profess to admire.

They donít build anything. They donít create anything. They donít run anything, they manage. There are no schools of Business Creation. Nobody gets an MBB, a Masterís of Building a Business. The key word in their schools and on their degrees is Administration. They are trained to be administrators, another way of saying bureaucrat. Bureaucrats do not build, create, or run things. They maintain the bureaucracy for their own comfort and advantage.

And they donít want to build anything, create anything, or run anything. They just want the money that comes from things that have been built, created, and run by other men and women.

They are thieves and pirates, looters, moochers, parasites, and skimmers, and they want the money. All of it. Now.
