Atlas Shrugged Live!

Remember how near the end of the middle part of Atlas Shrugged, where all the trains are breaking down and no one actually knows how to make things work?

Asiana Airlines had a plane crash because of pilot error. They didn’t actually know how to fly the plane. You can imagine them sitting there, thinking, “Damn! We’re low. But I don’t want to embarrass anyone, because I’m not really sure how this thing works, without the autopilot engaged.” (Landing beacon at SFO was down that day).

The Road to Serfdom, by F.A. Hayek
The Road to Serfdom in 5 Minutes:



Unfortunately, it seems that the future Aldous Huxley predicted in 1932, in Brave New World, is arriving early. Mockery, truculence, and minimalist living are best, then enjoy the decline. However, we do need a Revolving Door Tax (RDT), learn what Members of Congress pay in taxes, and prosecute politicians and staff and their “family and friends” who profit from insider trading. Oh, and pay “public servants” what they are worth.
