Rand Paul is Ayn Rand's most prominent disciple. She studied philosophy and screenwriting in the USSR under communist influence. She was granted a visa to visit the United States at a time when such travel was generally restricted to the most loyal and well-connected communists. Have Neo-Randists considered how the philosophy she engineered can undermine or even destroy democracy by turning people against their government?
Look at the results when Wall Street financeers lobbied to remove the protective controls of the Glass-Steagall act and Greenspan-the-Rand-worshiper in charge of the Federal Reserve Bank sat on his hands watching the dynamite grow hotter and hotter until it cooked off. Now the big banks have stopped lending money because they can make more money playing Wall Street roulette with our savings. When banks don't lend, the economy doesn't grow.
Money has to move for an economy to grow. Wealth concentration causes economic constipation. It's all in Switzerland, the Grand Caymans, Monaco.
Go to Williams-Sonoma and buy a package of bamboo skewers. Open the package and try to break the bundle. You cannot but you can break any of them easily. A nation is strong only when it is unified.
Randism is divisive. It's against the principles upon which our nation was founded--love thy neighbor, do unto others... . Randism is a toxic elitist cult movement with allegiance only to power and money. You can almost feel the foundation crumbling beneath our feet.
It was indifference by the Russian ruling elite to the plight of the working class that threw open the gates to communism in that country. In America it's democratic principles that ensure against this ever happening here. Communists know this and Rand's Objectivism is their corrosive tool for destroying it.
The uber-partisan US Congress of recent years is Randism in action.
Despite her lack of literary skill, there's no denying Rand's high intellect. Was she Lenin's long shot, a Kremlin time-release Hail Mary with the perfect anti-communist cover story?
The quickest way to ensure the success of a spy is to believe what they're saying. Would you expect Ayn Rand to do anything but condemn communism? She doesn't have to even mention the word. That's the frightening beauty of her toxic philosophy--the poison comes wrapped in a candy coating of hyper-capitalism and anti-communism.
Rand's Objectivist philosophy drives an elitist wedge between the classes that says to the economically privileged, "You are entitled to whatever you can wring from this country and 'meh' to the rest of them." The weakening of America has been because of Randist principles not in spite of them. Sophisticated tools like credit default swaps enable the 2-percent to exploit recessions. Let the economy tank. Goldman Sachs proved they can make billions on the way down, where a buying opportunity awaits.
If Ayn Rand were merely a philosopher, why didn't she publish her philosophy and let the chips fall? Why was it necessary to put so much into promoting her "philosophy"? Why hype with fiction what should speak for itself?
Her continuing public relations campaign is designed to fundamentally change this country. Why? Out of a concern for mankind? That would be altrusim, which her "philosophy" rejects. So why the fanatical desire to change the world? For profit? She's dead, but the fanaticism continues.
Rand mania is growing. There are nonprofits today promoting Randism to grade-schoolers like mind candy. It makes Scientology look like kindergarten.
Today, Rand has been reincarnated in political figures like the Paul political duo. If you want to believe Rand Paul's nickname is unrelated to his and his father's devotion to Ayn Rand, I've got some dry land in West Texas you can buy.
The Rand/Ron Paul duo like to point out that America is a republic, not a democracy, when the fact is America was founded on democratic principles such as equality and one-person-one-vote, terms classified by Mama Rand as "collectivism." Our politicians and government promote dmocracy abroad as if America were the world's greatest example. Randists like to use the term "Republic" to confuse the issue, thinking people too stupid to see through their facade.
Randism is fascism in drag, and when it fails, communism will be there to tilt the pool table and watch the balls roll into their corner pocket.
Watch the Pilger documentary for a picture of how the fascism we sponsored in Latin America opened the door for communism: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeHzc1h8k7o
