…I connected with my school’s College Libertarians Facebook group. They were a tight-knit bunch, but they embraced my eagerness to join their ranks. Soon, my Facebook feed was filled with all kinds of Ayn Rand quotes and Gadsden flags. Posts like the one claiming that public schools, the very institutions that employed many of my family members, were “replete with agents of state-orchestrated indoctrination” (good job with the SAT words there, guys) were enough to keep me from ever showing up to a College Libertarians meeting.

Meng Zong’s far-sightedness is astounding. Not only does he correctly predict the future paradigm shift in geopolitical conflict towards recognition of the paramount value of resource security, he also has the chutzpah to hide his expansionist self-interest in the form of a public works project.

“Responsibility; that’s a trap, too… Life is full of horror; nobody escapes, nobody. Save yourself,” says closeted former Cold Warrior Roy Cohn (Charles Leggett, shrewdly embodying a calm, unctuous Cohn rather than the usual Pacino-esque hysterics). That ruthless credo of individualism, conceived in the Reagan era, now echoes more strongly in the glib libertarianism of Rand Paul (by way of Ayn Rand).

Even former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan — a free-market conservative who once belonged to libertarian Ayn Rand’s inner circle — said in February: “I consider income inequality the most dangerous part of what’s going on in the United States.”

Ayn Rand said, “Time and again, I have found that the basic evil behind today’s ugliest phenomena is altruism” ; she believed in “selfishness.” But Gandhi said, “Find yourself in the service of others”;
he believed in altruism. God, based on His discussion with Cain, seems to agree with Gandhi about being our brothers’ keeper.
