Craig Biddle, The Objective Standard

Dave Rubin, the host of the show, interviews authors, activists, journalists, comedians, actors, and professors, and he digs deep into the issues at hand. Topics range from political correctness, to freedom of speech, to foreign policy, religion, atheism, and Objectivism. Whatever is under discussion in any given show, one common thread ties everything together: an appreciation for the importance of ideas and an understanding of the freedom required to talk about and act on them. In other words, the common thread is the fundamental ideals of classical liberalism.

Who is John Galt? The character from Ayn Rand’s seminal Atlas Shrugged may be fictional, but apparently he was a Zionist.

On Tuesday evening in Tel Aviv, the Ayn Rand Center debuted its first Atlas Award, a prize intended to bolster entrepreneurship and represent Rand’s individualistic ideals. It presented the award to Moovit, a company whose app provides real-time data on public transport.

Many of the prestigious participants in the event, however, also sought to distance themselves from some of the more controversial political elements of the Ayn Rand Center and Rand’s philosophy.

There are many contests and competitions in Israel each year that seek the entrepreneur with the best idea, business, or skill set. But the winner of the Atlas Award – to be given out Tuesday in Tel Aviv by the Israeli chapter of the Ayn Rand Institute – will be able to lay claim to the title of “most entrepreneurial entrepreneur.”

Some years back I heard Ayn Rand Institute Executive Director Yaron Brook speak at the annual Tea Party conference in Phoenix. He said something that should resonate with every constitutional conservative: “Before Congress ever considers taking up any law, the members should ask themselves one question: Do we, under the Constitution, have the authority to consider this?”

While that is a paraphrase from memory, the rationale for asking such a question is undeniable.

.…[David] Sokol, 59 years old, is becoming increasingly vocal about politics. He is an avowed fan of “Atlas Shrugged,” the 1957 novel by Ayn Rand that made a moral case for capitalism and self interest. In public speeches and columns, Mr. Sokol has drawn comparisons between the dystopian, over-regulated America portrayed in the book and the present day, saying that free enterprise is increasingly under attack.

Jesse Hathaway, Somewhat Reasonable (Heartland Institute)

What do Michelangelo, LeBron James, Steve Jobs, and Bernie Sanders have in common? In this episode of the weekly Budget & Tax News podcast, managing editor and research fellow Jesse Hathaway talks with Yaron Brook, the president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute to find out!

Equality is not fair, Brook says, and it’s not an achievable goal in the real world, because everyone has different abilities and skills. Instead of weighing down LeBron James so he’s no better at basketball or make Michelangelo paint left-handed so he’s no better at art than other people, we should embrace the fact that everyone has different talents than everyone else.

The Federalist

There is a narrative that we must fight inequality by raising the minimum wage, raising taxes and redistributing wealth. Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, suggests that this narrative is wrong and that the real threat to the American Dream is an all-out war on success. Brook coauthored the book Equal is Unfair: America’s Misguided Fight Against Income Inequality, and joined the Federalist Radio Hour to explain how free markets and limited government can save the American Dream.

It was fitting for The Heartland Institute’s President and CEO Joe Bast to feature Yaron Brook President of the Ayn Rand Institute, in a discussion of his new book, “Equal Is Unfair: America’s Misguided Fight Against Income Inequality.” Both organizations are fighting for the principles of freedom and liberty as set forth by our Founding Fathers.
