Yaron Brook, Director Ejecutivo del Instituto Ayn Rand, coautor del libro Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government, inició su intervención agradeciendo la invitación a la Sede Nacional de Uniandinos. Brook se refirió a la definición de Capitalismo en la actualidad, «es el sistema de la propiedad privada y el gobierno no interviene en la economía», explicó. Sin embargo, sobre el tema en discusión invitó a los participantes a responder una pregunta «¿Qué sucede con el Capitalismo que no queremos aceptarlo?», y posterior a ello, explicó cómo es posible que el problema de aceptar el capitalismo en la sociedad tenga que ver con la concepción de ética que los individuos tienen y que ven amenazada por este sistema.

Saying derogatory things and offending one another is the foundation of the right to free speech, and that right is in jeopardy, according to Dr. Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute in Southern California. “People have a right to be despicable, and they have a right to free speech,” said Brook…

Even most progressive think tanks engage in little rigorous thinking about the underlying moral assumptions of a good society. Rather, they’re just policy shops. Not so on the right, where funders have invested heavily in articulating the values frameworks that should govern public life. I used to regularly debate the president of the Ayn Rand Institute, and I was always amazed by how many resources it had—and how well it engaged its supporters in dialogue over political philosophy.
